This editor's pick from Innospec aligns with the current trend for waterless and water-efficient formulas. The hair conditioning bar features Innospec's Laurex CS (INCI: Cetearyl Alcohol) and Dimethisil HNH-LV (INCI: Propoxytetramethyl Piperidinyl Dimethicone) ingredients.

Laurex CS is a plasticizer and texturizing agent. This primary fatty alcohol also helps to give a controlled release of active ingredients and perfumes. Dimethisil HNH-LV is a low viscosity functionalized dimethyl fluid made using hindered amine. According to the company, the introduction of amine functionality into a dimethyl silicone creates a cationic, substantive raw material. This modification enhances the molecules’ ability to form ionic bonds with keratinaceous substrates.

The resulting solid hair conditioner bar is highlighted for on-the-go travel to replace large plastic bottles of liquid hair conditioner. It reportedly is easy to use simply by running the bar through wet hair and rinsing.
