At in-cosmetics Asia, Corel Pharma Chem will introduce a cost-effective acrylate polymer hair fixative. Acryset, available in P-30 and P-40 grades, can be used at lower percentages in hair styling gels compared to conventional hair fixative polymers for improved hair holding and film-forming properties.
The polymer is non-yellowing and imparts a smooth and shiny feeling. It has excellent humidity resistance and superior clarity in a final formulation. It also has excellent compatibility with synthetic thickeners like carbomers and natural thickeners. It is recommended at 0.1-0.3% in hair styling formulations. The polymer imparts no tackiness or stickiness and has a long-lasting curl effect.
