Product Group Description

What is guar hydroxypropyltrimonium chloride? It’s a white or yellow powder that is a quaternary ammonium derivative of guar gum. It’s a plant derived and water soluble derivative from guar beans, which come from the guar plant. Guar plants are legumes and can be mainly found in Pakistan and India. The guar beans are milled to obtain guar gum and this natural gum is purified and reacted to produce the guar hydroxypropyltrimonium chloride. In personal care products it’s widely known for its anti-static, conditioning, and viscosity properties, especially in shampoo formulation.

Guar hydropropyltrimonium chloride hair functions are: 1) reduction of static created between hair strands, which ensures non static hair by neutralizing the negative charges on the hair through its positive charge. 2) in shampoo and other hair care products it’s a great conditioning agent. While primarily used in hair care products, it’s also formulated in skin and body care products mainly as a skin conditioning agent.

Guar hydroxypropyltrimonium chloride is generally seen as safe to use. It doesn’t require CLP or GHS pictograms and for transport purposes it’s considered a non-dangerous good.
