Market trends are driving the development of polymer and surfactant ingredients toward natural origins—in particular, plants. In this article, the authors review some of the recent trends in green surfactants and polymers for hair care. One interesting technology transfer trend is the use of hydrogen-bonded supramolecular networks to produce self-healing fixative films.

Guar hydroxypropyltrimonium chloride (GHPTC) is one of the most widely used cationic polymers in the personal care industry. GHTPC is employed primarily as a conditioning agent in shampoos and body washes. In many of these rinse-off products, it is also a critical deposition aid for the delivery of active ingredients and hydrophobic conditioning agents, e.g., silicones, to the skin and hair.

Tocopherols and tocotrienols are the major constituents of almond oil, safflower oil and palm oil. They are necessary for the normal growth and metabolism of healthy skin. These oils were formulated in nourishing skin care products and massage creams as part of stable o/w emulsions and were found to have excellent storage stability, flow properties, spreadability and moisturizing properties.
