FUNCTIONALITIES

The FLOCARE™ and FLOGEL™ lines of polymer have a wide range of functionalities that work within Skin Care, Hair Care, and Bath & Shower formulations.

Conditioning Agents

Conditioners are film-formers used in hair or skin care formulations.  A hair conditioner is a product used to improve the feel, appearance, combing, and manageability of hair.  It also improves shine, softness, and reduces frizz and fly-aways.

When used as film-formers in body wash, conditioners bring a soft after-feel to the skin and reduce skin irritation.
