Honeyquat is a cationic quaternary polymer – meaning it is a positively charged conditioning agent – derived from honey. As a cationic quat, it is substantive. This means it is positively charged and binds to our negatively charged hair and skin to offer conditioning and moisturizing. And it’s a humectant, and we can’t get enough of those! You can use it at up to 5% in the cool down phase of hair care or body care products.
