Ingredient Charges

Updated: Oct 4, 2023

ANIONIC- Anionic substances are negaitively charged. Anionic substances are always anionic, whether they be a surfactant, humectant, gum or emulsifier. Anionic and cationic substances are usually not capatible with one another, although a few exceptions do occur. Anionic substances are great cleansing agents but should not be used for conditioning products.


NON- IONIC- Non ionic substances do not carry charges and are unaffected by charges.


CATIONIC- Cationic substances have a positive charge. Cationic substances are not normally compatable with anionic substances (some exceptions occur). Cationics are great for hair care products!
