VARISOFT® EQ 65 MB is a readily biodegradable ester quat with excellent conditioning performance. It improves the conditioning properties of wet and dry hair and can also act as an emulsifier providing a sensory profile typical of cationic emulsions.

Conditioners including VARISOFT® EQ 65 MB have a very rich and creamy appearance. In a cream rinse treatment, this ester quat showed an excellent rinseability and was more easily rinsed out of hair when compared to Behentrimonium Chloride (VARISOFT® BT 85 Pellets), a high-performance conditioning agent.

This product can be dispersed in water at approximately 75°C. The addition of nonionic emulsifiers such as Ceteareth-25 would improve the processability of this product in water.
