BIOSTYLE™ CGP polymer is a naturally-derived 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 hybrid polymer comprised of maltodextrin and vinyl pyrrolidone, 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.
