Distearoylethyl dimonium chloride

This molecule with a terrible name is part of the family of quaternary ammoniums. A family of compounds widely used in hair care for their conditioning effect. How does it work? Quaternary ammoniums are positively charged (+), while hair has a negative charge (-). Yes, our hair is electrically charged. But you've known for a long time that opposite charges are attracted to each other. Quaternary ammoniums attach to the hair, forming a sheath around the hair, making it smooth, soft, shiny, and easy to style. Quaternary ammoniums, often referred to as "quats" on forums, are decried for their poor environmental impact. But Distearoyl dimonium chloride is one of the few biodegradable "quats". So it's all good!

Natural ? Yes. Boring? Never !

Between us gentlemen, aren't you fed up with products with synthetic odors and dubious compositions? Do you want to go back to nature, with healthy formulas that preserve your beauty capital?

We do too, which is why Monsieur BARBIER has rethought the design of products for men in order to imagine the most natural products possible, by carefully choosing each ingredient and each active ingredient, for an uncompromising balance between effectiveness, sensoriality and naturalness. Naturalness, yes, but not at the expense of style or pleasure.

In this approach, Monsieur BARBIER is one of the only brands for men to be members of COSMEBIO and subject to ECOCERT audits, for its Cosmos Nat labeled products. And all of our products are free from controversial ingredients, or ingredients of animal origin. Not even hurt !
