Distearyldimonium Chloride

* Positively-charged surfactant


Although Distearyldimonium Chloride is primarily used in hair conditioners, it is also found in many skin creams because of its moisturizing and smoothing properties. According to The Beauty Brains, the positive charges in Distearyldimonium Chloride react with the negatively charged proteins on the skin and don't completely rinse off or become absorbed. This leaves a silky coating that leaves the skin feeling smooth.

Safety Measures/Side Effects:

Distearyldimonium Chloride is generally created synthetically and is relatively gentle, but can be irritating to sensitive skin. There are some concerns that it may be toxic but these are ultimately dismissed (source).

Recommended Products w/ Distearyldimonium Chloride:

Curel Youth Defense Moisture Lotion, Gold Bond Ultimate Restoring Skin Therapy Lotion
