UltraThix™ Rheology Modifiers
Hair Care; Skin Care; Sun Care
UltraThix™ P-100 is a multi-benefit, patented rheology modifier that delivers an array of benefits such as shear-thinning rheological properties with yield value and positive sensory perception. At a use level of only 1%, this lightly cross-linked copolymer of vinyl pyrrolidone and acrylic acid effectively provides enhanced styling benefits including high high humidity curl retention, allowing for the formulation of cost-effective styling gels. Additionally, in skin care formulas, it offers emulsion stabilization, reduces tack and improves aesthetics of hydroalcoholic sprays, and enhances skin feel properties.
