K-PAK Technology - What it is: Quadramine Complex is a dual-charged (positive and negative), hybrid protein complex comprised of all 19 amino acids in the proper sequence and exact molecular weights (150-2500) necessary to ensure maximum reconstruction from the cortex to the cuticle. What it does: The presence of stabilized Quadramine Complex in Vero K-PAK Color formulas serves a dual purpose. First, it reconstructs the hair both internally and externally, resulting in stronger and healthier feeling hair following the color process. Secondly, the natural compatibility between Quadramine Complex and the hair's structure helps dye molecules penetrate faster and deeper, resulting in exceptional color quality and longer-lasting results.
Water-Soluble Creme Base - What it is: Vero K-PAK Color contains a water-soluble base with a true creme texture that makes it easy to mix, allows Quadramine Complex and dye molecules to penetrate more efficiently, and requires not shampoo to remove color. What it does: Because there is no need to shampoo, freshly deposited dye molecules are given time to stabilize in the hair, resulting in less color loss.
True Tone Series - What it is: The Vero K-PAK Color System is organized into series of intermixable true-tone shades with identical bases, providing you with the complete artistic freedom and the ability to create an infinite number of customized shades. What it does: Intermixable true tone colors help create one-of-a-kind hair color.
Trans-Cuticle Delivery System (TCD) - What it is: This exclusive delivery system occurs due to a unique reaction between Quadramine Complex and Lecithin, a naturally derived emollient found in Vero K-PAK Color. Lecithin reduces the surface tension of the hair, allowing Quadramine Complex and color molecules to enter the hair -around the open cuticle and also through the cuticle. This action provides enhanced color penetration with minimal cuticle swelling. What it does: The Trans-Cuticle Delivery System allows for rapid, deeper penetration of the dye molecules, resulting in superior color longevity. It also enhances the reconstructive benefits of Quadramine Complex, allowing for quicker penetration of the amino acids.
Calibrated Ammonia System - What it is: Vero K-PAK Color is structured with a calibrated ammonia system. This system permits each level of hair color to contain only the precise percentage of ammonia necessary. What it does: Low ammonia contributes to minimal cuticle damage, less scalp irritation, reduced odor and healthy, vibrant color results.
Dual-Color System - Complementary permanent and demi-permanent shades allow you to touch up new growth with permanent color while using a gentle, acidic demi-permanent color to refresh the mid-shaft and ends.
