UltraCare C polyquaterniums are cationic water-soluble polymers able to form an electrostatic combination with the negatively charged keratin thus bringing conditioning properties to the hair when incorporated in shampoos, conditioning creams and masks. Compatibility with both wet and dry hair types is improved as well as shine and softness. Some Ultracare C grades also bring fixative properties for use in hair gels. They are clear easy-to-use liquids that can be applied in crystal clear and opaque formulations. All our polymers have proved to have high solubility in water and are completely transparent allowing the formulation of crystal clear products.

Conditioning polymers: From very strong conditioning effect especially useful in combing creams or hair masks to good compromise between conditioning and compatibility to anionic surfactants which can be used in shampoo products. Our polymers are designed to meet every cosmetic manufacturer’s expectations. They also provide foam stabilization and increase deposition of other active materials such as silicones and zinc pyrithione.
Styling polymers: Mainly based on n-vinyl pyrrolidone, a component widely used to provide styling properties to hair gels or mousses used in combination with a cationic monomer to provide some conditioning effect in addition to styling.
