SeraSense® GBA 82 is a high viscosity dimethiconol gum blended with C13-15 Alkane; a silicone fluid alternative manufactured via fermentation of sugar cane.  This product offers unique benefits for hair and skin products.

In hair formulations, the hair is left feeling silky soft and frizz-free. Conditioning benefits can be seen in combing and friction data, where all attributes are markedly improved.  When compared to SeraSense® GB 10, the smoothing and damage repair performance is enhanced.  SeraSense® GBA 82 can easily be diluted to produce hair serums, or added directly into conditioners.

In skin applications, it offers a unique skin feel and a moisturised finish.
