: Naturally-derived, sugar-based hair fixative polymer designed especially for use in clear, hard holding hair gels, mousses, and other styling aids. Non-ionic polymer supplied as a 25% aqueous solution. Yellowish, viscous liquid, faint odor. Preserved with phenoxyethanol and ethylhexylglyerin. Soluble in water and ethanol. CAS
: 1323833-53-2, 7732-18-5 INCI Name
: Maltodextrin / VP copolymer
- Provides exceptional on-hair performance
- Has great clarity and thick rheology that are typically associated only with synthetic fixative polymers
- Does not need to be neutralized
- Excellent compatibility with commonly used gel ingredients (e.g. panthenol, silicones, glycerin, sorbitol, EDTA, GLDA, propylene glycol, and polyethylene glycols).
: Can be combined with carbomer, other polymer thickeners, PVP & gums. Typical use level between 4-36%. Add to water-phase for making gels. For external use only. Applications
: Hair gels, mousse, creams & lotions, waxes & pomades.
Country of Origin
Raw material source
: Corn starch, vinyl pyrrolidone
: VP Copolymer is produced by polymerization of vinyl pyrrolidone (VP) monomers to form a large polymer molecule. The polymer is then reacted with maltodextrin, a large sugar molecule (polysaccharide), obtained from starch.
: Not animal tested
: Not tested for GMOs
: Does not contain animal derived components
