Technical Datasheet | Supplied by Nouryon in-cosmetics global 2020
Sodium Polystyrene Sulfonate. FLEXAN® II by Nouryon acts as a film former. It is a multi-functional polymer for hair and skin management. For hair care, it can be used to remove cationic build-up on hair, making it ideal for shampoos and cleansing products. Its water soluble films are strong and flexible, making it a multifunctional ingredient for various styling aids. FLEXAN’s polymer films are heat stable well above 300°F (150°C) and therefore protect the hair from heat damage caused by using hair dryers or curling irons during the styling process. FLEXAN® II is a highly anionic polymer with excellent electrical conductivity. It quickly dissipates electric charge and helps prevent flyaway strands. For skin care, its film forming properties tighten the skin and smooth the fine wrinkles. It is used in bath & shower products, conditioner, ethnic hair, mousse, shampoo, skin cream and lotion as well as styling product. Complies with Australia, Canada, Europe (EINECS) and USA (TSCA).
