Product Overview

INCI Vinyl Caprolactam/VP/Dimethylaminoethyl Methacrylate Copolymer

Advantage™ S is substantive to negatively charged surfaces, such as hair. Protonation with acid to reduce pH yields a pseudo-cationic polymer that is compatible with anionic, nonionic and cationic surfactants. It is also compatible with silicones and thickeners.
Advantage™ S polymer is easy to use, requiring minimal time and agitation at room temperature to completely dissolve. It does not require neutralization.
