Ultrathix™ P-100 polymer

Acrylic Acid/VP Crosspolymer. Ultrathix™ P-100 polymer by Ashland Specialty Chemical acts as a film former, fixative & styling polymer and rheology modifier. It is a lightly cross-linked copolymer of vinyl pyrrolidone and acrylic acid. It delivers an array of benefits including shear-thinning rheological properties with yield value and positive sensory perception. In hair care applications, this patented technology exhibits high humidity curl retention and low tack. It can create a sprayable polyelectrolyte matrix when formulated with linear, high molecular weight cationic or pseudocationic polymers. When used in skin and sun care products, it forms dry, smooth film on skin and provides water resistance. It offers emulsion stabilization. Ultrathix™ P-100 polymer is used in gels, mousses, styling sprays (non-aerosol), styling lotions/creams and novelty stylers, body care, color cosmetics, facial care, after-sun, self-tanning and sunscreen applications. It is suitable for leave-on skin care.
