It's back!  Our new GuarCat™ is thicker than before, so you may use less to achieve the same results!

GuarCat™ cationic guar is a naturally derived water-soluble cationic polymer derived from guar gum. With the benefits of keratin substantivity and viscosity control, it imparts conditioning properties to shampoos and after-shampoo hair care products. Moderately cationic, it conditions without buildup.

GuarCat™ is lightly crosslinked with boron to ensure good water-dispersibility. Add GuarCat™ to the vortex of well-agitated water and mix until dispersed. Adjust to pH 7.0 or less to remove the boron treatment and promote hydration of the polymer (citric acid or lactic acid can be used to adjust the pH as needed). Continue mixing for 15 minutes for full viscosity development.

I just wanted to say how much I am liking my new Borosilicate Beaker, 2000ml & the large wire whip.
The wire whip is the best quality wire whip I have ever had..
I now want them all..

I am always delighted with the speed, efficiency and quality of your products. And a special thank you for emailing me a formular I was looking for.
You are a truly professional company!

I turned a bright shade of chartreuse, not merely light pink when I received what I ordered. The gifts I received, to make my concocting more pleasurable, were quite a surprise & a delight. I have NEVER received anything free from ANY other skin stuff supplier, even from that big one, the one who name rhymes with Sinew Bidirections!!
I highly recommend this company for our skin concocting needs.

Amazed at how quickly my goodies arrived! Thank you for taking the time to figure out the cheapest shipping and refunding the amount I originally paid for shipping. Amazing!
