Film Formers

Film formers are widely used in hair and skin-care products like moisturizers. When applied on the hair or skin, they form a supple, cohesive, and continuous layer. This layer/film has water-binding properties that leave a silky and smooth effect on the skin. Various acrylates, acrylamides, and copolymers come under the category of film forming agents.
