FSS Quaternized Honey SA is a cost effective honey derived ingredient with twice the moisturizing ability of glycerin

Optimum hydration levels are essential for achieving the ultimate skin aesthetics: radiant, young and healthy looking skin. Unfortunately, the harsh environment surrounding us and the fast paced life styles deplete our skin from the much needed moisture. For this reason, adding strong moisturizers to cosmetic applications is no longer a luxury, it’s a necessity. However, how can we choose from the numerous moisturizing ingredients on the market? The answer is simple; we have to consider three main factors: Price, Effectiveness and Source.

FSS Quaternized Honey SA is a cost effective honey derived ingredient with twice the moisturizing ability of glycerin. This water soluble ingredient is created by reacting the pendent hydroxyl groups on the disaccharide with a chlorohydroxytreimethylammonium derivative. This reaction creates a product with increased substantively to both hair and skin and which in turn provides unique moisturizing, softening and smoothing benefits. FSS Quaternized Honey SA is ideal for use in leave-on as well as rinse-off skin and hair care applications where distinct marketing appeal and price consciousness are paramount while providing the effectiveness of high-end, state of the art ingredients.

Available: In vivo Skin Moisturization Study with Quaternized Honey and the capability of providing higher moisturization benefits than glycerin.
