ZENESTER®

THE ZENESTER PLATFORM provides a series of high molecular weight Q6,000) polymeric silicone polyesters, some of which are water soluble and non-ionic. They are compatible with cationic and anionic systems. These branched polymers leave no buildup on hair and provide the high molecular weight needed for skin and sun care. They go clear into a formula and act as couplers in oil/water or water/oil emulsions. The Zenester platform includes a micro-emulsion and a quaternized product.


ZENESTER® S
INCI NAME
 PEG-8 Dimethicone/Dimer Dilinoleic Acid Copolymer
PRIMARY FUNCTION Substantive water soluble silicone polymer, humectant (25,000 mw)
USE LEVEL 0.25 – 4%

Zenester S is a water soluble high molecular weight (25000) polymeric silicone polyester. It is highly lubricious and provides excellent wet comb and conditioning as well as superb skin feel when delivered from aqueous systems. Zenester S is non-ionic and is compatible with cationic and anionic systems thereby providing the formulator with greater latitude. This product is water soluble and goes clear into a formula. Zenester S is patent pending.

ZENESTER® Q
INCI NAME Silicone Polyquaternium 19
PRIMARY FUNCTION Cationic water dispersible silicone polymer, long term conditioner for hair and skin, humectant (30,000 mw)
USE LEVEL 0.25 – 4%

Zenester Q is a water soluble functionalized cationic polyester,  high molecular weight (30,000). Zenester Q is the only cationic functioning quat to be reacted with a fatty acid. It improves substantivity and conditioning because of the high weight and cationic charge. Zenester Q is  highly lubricious and provides excellent wet comb and conditioning as well as superb skin feel when delivered from aqueous systems. Zenester Q is patent pending.
