N-Hance Guar and Conditioning Polymers

Key Applications

Hair Care; Skin Care

Product Description

These cationic polymers provide the dual benefits of conditioning and thickening. The cationic charge makes the product substantive to anionic surfaces such as skin and hair. Many of the products in the N-Hance cationic guar product line have a high molecular weight, water-soluble backbone and are effective viscosifiers in aqueous solutions and surfactant-based systems.

3000N-Hance™ 3000 Cationic Guar is a guar hydroxypropyltrimonium chloride. It is a cationic polymer that provides the dual benefits of conditioning and viscosity. The cationic charge makes the product substantive to anionic surfaces such as skin and hair. The backbone creates viscosity when it is hydrated. SDS*TDS*
3196N-Hance™ 3196 Cationic Guar is a quaternary polymer that provides the dual benefits of conditioning and viscosity build. It is substantive to anionic surfaces such as skin and hair. This product is suggested for use in hair and skin care formulations to provide a mid level of conditioning, with high viscosity build. SDS*TDS*
3215N-Hance™ 3215 Cationic Guar is a quaternary polymer that provides the dual benefits of conditioning and viscosity build. This high-cationic-subtitution, high molecular weight polymer is substantive to anionic surfaces such as skin and hair. It is suggested for use in hair and skin care formulations to provide a high level of conditioning, with high viscosity build. SDS*TDS*
4572N-Hance™ 4572 Conditioning Polymer is a medium charge density, high molecular weight cationic polymer composition, useful as a conditioner and viscosifying agent. It has the ability to deliver high levels of conditioning oil to hair or skin from cleansing formulations while allowing to reduce active conditioning levels by 25-50%. SDS*TDS*
BF13N-Hance™ BF-13 Cationic Guar is a quaternary polymer that provides the dual benefits of conditioning and viscosity build. It is substantive to anionic surfaces such as skin and hair. This product is boron-free which differentiates it from typical cationic guars. SDS*TDS*
CCG45N-Hance™ CCG 45 Cationic Guar is a new quaternary polymer that provides the benefit of excellent conditioning for both clear and opaque surfactant systems. Because of its low molecular weight, this product does not build up after repeated washings and leaves hair easy-to-style. It also provides excellent skin feel, both wet and dry, when used in personal cleansing products such as shower gels or lSDS*TDS*
CG13N-Hance™ CG13 Cationic Guar is a quaternary polymer that provides the dual benefits of conditioning and viscosity build. It is substantive to anionic surfaces such as skin and hair. This product contains fumaric acid and is self-hydrating; pH adjustment is not required for viscosity adjustment. SDS*TDS*
HP40N-Hance™ HP-40 Hydroxypropyl Guar is a nonionic, polymeric thickener that develops high viscosity in a short time period. Dispersions of this nonbuffered polymer will be basic. They must be adjusted to neutral pH, preferably with an organic acid. Rapid viscosity development will follow. SDS*TDS*
HPCG 1000N-Hance™ HPCG 1000 Cationic Guar is a cationic, polymeric thickener and conditioning agent. It is ideal for use in premium shampoos and body washes, pearlescent shampoos, conditioning shampoos, hair conditioners and shave preparations. Solutions of this polymer have a high level of lubricity. SDS*TDS*
SP-100N-Hance™ SP-100 Conditioning Polymer is a new polymer, specifically designed for use in personal care applications. It is typically used as a substantive conditioning polymer in rinse-off surfactant systems, such as shampoos, to reduce tangling and improve wet and dry comb properties of hair after shampooing. It is especially useful for delivering a highly conditioned feel to wet and dry hair. ThiSDS*TDS*
