Croda has launched an ingredient designed to smooth cuticles that have been damaged or lifted by the bleaching or styling processes. Crodabond CSA (INCI: Hydrogenated Castor Oil/Sebacic Acid Copolymer) is a conditioning treatment that helps repair the damage caused by at-home or salon chemical treatments.
The cuticle sealing performance of the copolymer is long-lasting, and its effects can be imparted over multiple shampoo washes. Treatment with the products results in hair that is smooth, conditioned and healthy-looking. The treatment was also found to prevent future damage.
The treatment is recommended at 0.5-5% in hair care, daily conditioners, intense conditioning treatments and shampoos.
