Emulsense is the first cationic material that is entirely non-petrochemical and produced from 100 % renewable resources. It also complies with the latest labelling requirements from different organisations. The product range also includes Emulsense HC, a cationic agent for natural hair care, and Emulsense SC, a novel emulsifying and sensory system for natural skin care.
