Seiwa Kasei reminded customers of their multi-functional Amitose R, a glycerine – arginine complex that form strong bonds with hair and skin to provide long-lasting moisturisation.
It does not rinse off when used in shower gels or shampoos because of the strong ionic bonds and hydrogen bonds this complex forms with skin or hair. It adsorbs easily to damaged hair, and in addition to this, penetrates the hair shaft because of its low MW, providing long-lasting moisturisation. It is also an effective anti-frizz ingredient. For more information about L-Arginine and its role in skin, this patent, Topical pharmaceutical compositions comprising L-Arginine and uses thereof provides more back-ground information about the use of the amino acid itself.
