Polymers functions in cosmetics

Polymers have various applications in cosmetics—polymers for personal care and cosmetics are used as thickeners, film-formers, emulsifiers, modifiers, etc. Polymers can modify the viscosity and improve the final product texture. Types of polymers in cosmetics are different; they can be natural or synthetic. Natural polymers in cosmetics include guar gum, xanthan gum and starch. Silicone elastomers in cosmetics are cross-linked dimethicone polymers that act as sensory and texture enhancers. SEPIMAX ZEN, UNIMER U-6 (TRIACONTANYL PVP) and ACULYN 28 POLYMER(ACRYLATES/BEHENETH-25 METHACRYLATE COPOLYMER) are some polymers of Trulux list for sale.
