Polycos CA-50 ECO

Product Description

Polycos CA-50 ECO is a biodegradable, conditioning and styling polymer, derived from sustainable sourced natural guar gum. The product is vegan, COSMOS compliant, boron-free and produced with a water saving process technology. The product can be used for a wide range of hair- and body care applications. In body wash and shampoo- formulations it delivers functions like conditioning to hair & skin, active delivery (such as silicones, oils, and anti- dandruff agents) and foam boosting properties. Due to the low molecular weight, the product provides less viscosifying properties and does not build up after repeated washings, leaves the hair easy-to-style. In styling formulations like mousses as well as leave-on styling treatments and creams, it provides voluminous style as well as foam- and conditioning benefits.
