Fragrances are a combination of individual ingredients that make up a specific smell or odor. When combined the right way, you can create the beautiful and unique fragrances that you will find in our new Bonacure portfolio. On our packaging, you will find fragrances within the ingredients list on the back, defined as ‘Fragrance’ or ‘Perfume’. In addition, the following ingredients also act as fragrances: Citral, Limonene, Linalol, Hexyl Salicylate, Geraniol, Citronellol, Benzyl Alcohol, Benzyl Salicylate, and Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone.
Vitamins are substances that our bodies need to develop and function. Vitamins are organic substances, which are made by plants. The two vitamins that you can find in several of the Bonacure products are Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E) and Niacinamide (Vitamin B).
In addition, you also have provitamins, which are substances that may be converted within the body to a vitamin. The term "provitamin" is used when it is desirable to label a substance with little or no vitamin activity, but which can be converted to an active form by normal metabolic processes.
The new Bonacure Clean performance products contain Panthenol (Pro-Vitamin B5). Panthenol acts as a hair conditioning agent (moisturiser) and a repairing ingredient.
All-natural cosmetic oils are comprised of liquid oils, waxes, butters, unsaponifiables and essential oils. We use natural oils in the Bonacure Frizz Away range. The ones you will find are Babassu Oil (Orbignya Oleifera Seed Oil) and Argan Oil (Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil). Both of these oils act as hair conditioning agents and make your hair smooth and shiny!
Amino Acids are the building blocks that form polypeptides and ultimately proteins. Consequently, they are fundamental components of our bodies and vital for physiological functions. In our haircare formulas, Amino Acids act as hair conditioning agents and are also a repairing ingredient. The Amino Acids that are present in our Bonacure formulas are Wheat Amino Acids (protein derivative), Threonine, Soy Amino Acids (protein derivative), Serine, Glycine and Arginine (HCL). Specifically, Glycine and Arginine also help to regulate scalp functions.
Humectants are materials used to promote moisture retention, by attracting water molecules from the local environment and binding them to specific sites along their structure. The humectants found in Bonacure products are Glycerin, Urea and Butylene Glycol.
Solvents are substances capable of dissolving a solute, to form a cleaning or de-greasing solution. These are the solvents you can find in the Bonacure formulas:
- Isopropyl Alcohol (dissolves other substances)
- Propylene Glycol (acts as a conditioning agent)
- Dipropylene Glycol (retains moisture and dissolves other substances)
- Alcohol Denat (evaporating agent & preservative)
- Aqua / Water / Eau
Surfactants are substances which are added to a liquid to reduce its surface tension, thereby increasing its spreading and wetting properties. These are surfactants that you can find in the Bonacure products and their specific functions:
- PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil (plant derived)
- PEG-7 Glyceryl Cocoate
- PEG-120 Methyl Glucose Dioleate
Mild cleansing agents:
- Trisodium Ethylenediamine Disuccinate
- Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate
- Sodium Methyl Isethionate
- Sodium Methyl 2-Sulfolaurate
- Sodium Cocoamphoacetate
- Sodium C14-16 Olefin Sulfonate
- Disodium 2-Sulfolaurate
- Caprylyl/Capryl Glucoside
- C12-18 Fatty Methyl Esters
- Disodium Cocoamphodiacetate
- Cocamidopropyl Betaine
Water-soluble vitamins, which include all B complex vitamins and vitamin C, lead to the production of coenzymes. They are organic molecules, which bind to the active sites of certain enzymes to assist in the catalysis of a reaction. Our Time Restore formulas contain Q10, also known as Ubiquinone, a coenzyme that acts as an anti-ageing ingredient.
HAIR CONDITIONING AGENTS
These agents condition and coat the hair to keep it moisturised and soft. They act as a detangler, making them a great ingredient to help improve hair combability and manageability.
- Stearamidopropyl Dimethylamine (also improves shine)
- Quaternium-91 (also has anti-static effect)
- Distearoylethyl Hydroxyethylmonium Methosulfate (also improves shine)
- Behenamidopropyl Dimethylamine
A polymer is a substance made up of a large number of smaller molecules that link together to form larger molecules. The polymers used in the new Bonacure formulas, such as Polyquaternium-11 and Polyquaternium-37, act as cationic care ingredients. They are positively charged and ionically bond to the hair. You can also find Hydroxypropyl Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride, a polymer that improves your hair’s shine, combability and manageability.
Emulsifiers are ingredients that prevent all of the other ingredients from separating. Emulsifiers can be found in any product that contains oil and water. In the new Bonacure products you can find PPG-1 Trideceth-6 and Sorbitan Oleate as emulsifiers, which stabilise our formulas.
In cosmetic products, emollients are used as hair care ingredients to improve shine, combability and feeling of the hair surface. The emollients used in our new Bonacure formulas also act as spreading agents:
- Dicaprylyl Carbonate
- Dicaprylyl Ether
- Cetyl Ethylhexanoate
- Cetyl Palmitate
- Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride
- Isopropyl Myristate
- Propylene Glycol Dicaprylate/Dicaprate
- Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter
Fatty acids are most often used in cosmetics as an emollient or an emulsifier. In the new Bonacure shampoos you can find Coconut Acid, an emollient that smooths the skin.
Viscosity agents are non-irritating compounds used as a thickening, lubricating and clinging agents. In the new Bonacure formulas you can find Glycol Distearate and Cetearyl Alcohol.
These ingredients provide cooling effects when applied onto the skin. Menthol is the cooling ingredient used in the Bonacure Clean Balance shampoo, which provides a cooling effect and increases blood circulation.
This is a type of organic compound that typically has acidic properties. They tend to naturally occur in lemons, oranges, limes and other citrus fruits. In the new Bonacure formulas we have Citric Acid and Lactic Acid, which both act as pH adjusters.
Preservatives are compounds that are added to a formula to protect it. Specifically, they prevent the development of microorganisms and help preserve the formula for a longer period of time, ensuring durability. In the Bonacure formulas you can find Phenoxyethanol, Potassium Sorbate and Methyl Benzoate as preservatives.
Active agents with skincare effects are all those substances which help to preserve the skin in its natural condition and to improve the skin condition, as well as to protect the skin. In the new Bonacure formulas you can find Bisabolol (ingredient of Chamomile) and Allantoin (hair conditioning agent) as skincare actives which help to provide a soothing effect and are sensitive as well, as they are anti-irritation ingredients.
A mineral is an element or chemical compound that is normally crystalline. In the new Bonacure products you can find Calcium Carbonate, Calcium Hydroxide and Magnesium Citrate that stabilise the pH values of our formulas. Sodium Chloride is also present, which is known as salt, and adjusts the viscosity of formulas, acting as a thickener.
Plant extracts are defined as concentrated preparations of liquid, solid or viscous consistency, obtained by maceration or percolation. Bonacure Clean Balance Anti-Pollution Water contains Moringa Officinalis Seed Extract, which acts as an anti-pollution ingredient.
These are a large class of inorganic compounds with the ability to react with or neutralise acids to form salts. Some new Bonacure formulas contain Sodium Hydroxyde, which is an inorganic base that acts as a pH adjuster.
QUATERNARY AMMONIUM COMPOUND (QUAT)
QUATs are cationic surfactants (positively charged surface-active agents) that increase the smoothness and combability of the hair. In the new Bonacure formulas you can find three different QUATs: Cetrimonium Methosulfate, Behentrimonium Chloride and Cetrimonium Chloride (a conditioning agent that also provides anti-static effect).
Buffering agents are used in cosmetics and haircare products to adjust and stabilise the pH level of these formulas. The buffering agent found in the new Bonacure formulas is Sodium Lactate.
