A-Polymer SP, a 100% natural polymer, offers moisture resistant styles, volume and anti-frizz performance. Its exceptional sensory and optical properties make it the ideal solution for natural and uncomplicated styling products that provide a noticeable hold.
A-Polymer SP you create hair styling products that give your hair a more natural hold. It can be used in a variety of formulations, from mousses to creams to sprays. The product itself is of natural origin and is manufactured using an extremely environmentally friendly manufacturing process.
A-Polymer SP is compatible with numerous hair styling ingredients and preservatives such as panthenol, silicones, sorbitol, propylene glycol and polyethylene glycols. With appropriate pH and processing adjustments, A-Polymer SP is also compatible with other polymers such as A-Polymer XT.
A-Polymer SP does not require any additional stabilisation, but is much more stable when the pH of the formulation is in the neutral range. Styling products with A-Polymer SP allow hair to dry much faster, thus protecting the hair from prolonged heat from blow-drying and styling.
A polymer of vegetable origin made from maize. Provides an excellent hold, but retains the natural feel of the hair and does not weigh it down.
