Polymers Skin Care Applications

Interpolymer has developed novel polymers for use in Skin Care Applications.  Each product was designed to impart a variety of perfromance enhancing attributes that can provide formulators with marketable differentiation in their end use products. 


Syntran® PC 5100 tightens and firms the skin, leaving it looking and feeling youthful.  Superior flexibility, adhesion, rub or wear resistance, and ease of removability are additional benefits. 


This innovative technology employs a bimodal interpenetrating network engineered to achieve a hydrophobic and hydrophilic balance that delivers both cationic and anionic functions.


Bimodal polymers provide a pleasant, natural feel without stiffness, flaking, or buildup.
