Beraca launches new conditioning surfactant for hair care formulations

With the aim of increasing its product portfolio of functional ingredients that provide clinically proven benefits, Beraca has partnered up with Clariant to launch Capillus Pro 22 at in-cosmetics Latin America. The event took place on 20-21 September at Expo Center Norte in São Paulo.

The new ingredient is a secondary surfactant suitable for hair care products including conditioners, hair masks, hair repair creams and combing creams. It is designed to strengthen the hair fibre and improve combability for intense hair smoothness, manageability and shine. Clinical tests have shown that Capillus Pro 22 can reduce hair volume in 28.1%, restore the hair fibre in 21%, improve wet combability in 18.5% and promote a 111.5% increase in hair shine.

Capillus Pro 22 is sustainably sourced from the Amazon rainforest through a fully traceable supply chain and clinically proven to strengthen the hair fiber, improve hair manageability and boost shine.

Capillus Pro 22 is the first ingredient developed by Beraca in partnership with Clariant. It is the result of a synergy between an amido-amine that was already available in the market and the pracaxi oil, a sustainably sourced, natural ingredient,” says Beraca’s CEO, Daniel Sabará. “The collaboration with Clariant has enabled us to maximise the potential of our portfolio and develop high-performance ingredients sourced from a sustainable and traceable supply chain.

Sabará adds that Capillus Pro 22 is the result of a chemical transformation technology developed by Clariant to join a non-ionic surfactant that carries a cationic charge in acid environments and whose pH is suitable for hair care formulations to a natural oil whose main active ingredient is the natural conditioning behenic acid.

Our goal is to show that by chemically transforming ingredients sourced from the Brazilian biodiversity we are able to offer even more innovative solutions for the personal care and cosmetics industries,” says Sabará. “The first amido-amine created from the pracaxi oil also fosters social and economic development of the local communities involved in the supply chain.

Headquartered in Brazil, Beraca supplies natural and organic-certified ingredients ethically sourced from the Amazon rainforest and other Brazilian ecosystems. The company’s portfolio includes oils, butters, clays and multi-functional ingredients. Beraca is present in over 40 countries around the globe, with international subsidiaries in Paris and New Jersey.
