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.

N-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.
N-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.
N-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 liquid soaps.
N-Hance™ CG17 Cationic Guar is a quaternary polymer that provides both conditioning and viscosity build. It is similar to CG13 but has a very high cationic charge, very heavy conditioning, and very high deposition of silicones, natural oils, and anti-dandruff actives.
N-Hance™ HP-40 Hydroxypropyl Guar is a nonionic, polymeric thickener that develops high viscosity in a short time period. Dispersions of this nonbuffered polymer grade will be basic. They must be adjusted to neutral pH, preferably with an organic acid. Rapid viscosity development will follow.
N-Hance™ HP-40S Hydroxypropyl Guar is a nonionic, polymeric thickener that develops high viscosity in a short time period. This self-hydrating grade is buffered to a solution pH of 6.5-7.6. It's a dispersible polymer that dissolves with no additional pH adjustment.
N-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. This product can also be added to bath and shower gels to improve skin feel after bathing or showering.
