New alkaliser for hair colorants

Angus Chemical Company has announced the commercial introduction of DL-2AP Ultra PC (INCI: Aminopropanol), a new alkaliser for hair colorant system

Angus Chemical Company has announced the commercial introduction of DL-2AP Ultra PC (INCI: Aminopropanol), a new alkaliser for hair colorant systems. This was developed in response to the fast-growing market demand for alternatives to commonly used alkalising agents, such as monoethanolamine (MEA) and ammonia.

DL-2AP Ultra PC is based on Angus’ proprietary nitroalkane chemistry and complies with the most stringent standards and regulations governing product purity, and secondary amine and nitrosamine content. It is supplied at minimum 99% pure, with high base strength and low molecular weight, suiting it to permanent and demi-permanent colorants.

Mrunalini Dhamdhere, global technical manager at Angus Home & Personal Care, said that permanent hair colorant systems formulated in the laboratory with DL-2AP Ultra PC “showed excellent lifting performance, as well as colour deposition and fastness comparable to ammonia and MEA”.

Hair treated with colorants using Angus chemistries also “saw reduced protein loss and morphological damage compared to colorants using ammonia and MEA, especially after multiple treatments”, Dhamdhere added.

DL-2AP Ultra DC is also said to have a more favourable environmental profile, superior biodegradability and lower odour than other chemistries on the market. Sample quantities are currently available for testing and commercial volumes are available in North America, South America, Europe and some Asian markets.
