Technical Datasheet | Supplied by Nouryon in-cosmetics global 2019
Acrylates/Ceteareth-20 Methacrylate Crosspolymer. BALANCE® RCFg by Nouryon acts as a fixative, film former and rheology modifier. It is an alkali swellable acrylic polymer derived from synthetic (petroleum-derived) sources that provides viscosity and stiffness, resulting in crystal clear hair gels with good transmittance. This polymer provides excellent high humidity curl retention and superior stiffness compared to traditional gel polymers. It also provides the features of low tack, volume, frizz control, gloss and exceptional clarity in water compared to traditional gel polymers. It can be used as a stand-alone polymer, replacing both traditional fixatives and rheology modifiers with a single ingredient. It is compatible with carbomers and can also be used in conjunction with traditional rheology control polymers to create economical and aesthetically pleasing styling products. BALANCE® RCFg is specially designed to make crystal clear hair gels but it can also be used to develop spray gels, styling creams, and other styling waxes and pomades.
