BIOSTYLE™ CGP polymer is a newly developed hair fixative polymer designed especially for use in styling products including clear hair gels, spray gels, creams, lotions and mousses. BIOSTYLE™ CGP polymer provides the features of exceptional clarity and consumer preferred rheology that are normally associated with synthetic fixative polymers, yet BIOSTYLE™ CGP polymer contains more than 50% renewable content. A proprietary, patented hybrid polymer formed by the reaction of NVP and maltodextrin, BIOSTYLE™ CGP polymer represents a new way for formulators to create more natural and sustainable styling products while maintaining cost-in-use targets and without any sacrifice of performance properties.
