VP/Acrylates/Lauryl Methacrylate Copolymer is a water dispersible polymer that has a unique hydrophobic character, and is capable of forming a mesh over the sunscreen film that will lay on the skin. In sun care formulas and foundations with high oil content, this mesh film former gives great water and wear resistance while reducing the heavy feel of such formulations.
INCI VP/Acrylates/Lauryl Methacrylate Copolymer Ganex Sensory is also used as a co-emulsifier in a variety of skin care formulations to impart great aesthetics.
