Ucare™ LK

Technical Datasheet | Supplied by Dow
Polyquaternium-10. Ucare™ LK by Dow is a water-soluble, cationic, multifunctional conditioning polymer having a cellulosic backbone derived from natural, renewable resources, such as cotton or wood. Acts as a repairing, moisturizing, conditioning and film forming agent. Exhibits non-newtonian pseudoplastic properties. When used in hair care products, it migrates directly to the point of damage to mend split ends. It enables the clear formulations with no build-up on hair and avoids volume-down effects. It can be used with or without silicones & compatible with a wide range of surfactants. It is essentially non-irritating to the eyes, hence can be included in shampoo and facial-cleanser formulations. Ucare™ LK is used in body washes, liquid-soap systems and bar soaps, the film-forming & moisturizing properties of it can improve deposition of beneficial agents and overall aesthetics.
