Styleze™ CC-10 polymer INCI Name: VP/DMAPA Acrylates Copolymer

Styleze CC-10 polymer, a copolymer of vinylpyrrolidone and dimethylaminopropyl methacrylamide, is a unique, patented polymer that delivers excellent hold and conditioning benefits to hair. Styleze CC-10 polymer imparts long-lasting hold and improved stiffness, even in high humidity conditions and at low use levels. Its pseudocationic nature makes it substantive to hair, providing conditioning and bodying effects as well as delivering improved shine, better manageability and a cleaner feel. Styleze CC-10 polymer can also be used as a thermal protectant in hair care products.
