advantage™ revive polymer for dry shampoos

chemistry: PVP polymers and VP derivatives


Many of today’s dry shampoo formulas are based on older starch-based systems and have not met the expectations of consumers… their hair is left looking lifeless, dull, less refreshed, and in some cases just as greasy.

Advantage™ revive polymer brings a much-needed refresh to the dry shampoo category. Based on a unique PVP chemistry, Ashland’s patent-pending advantage™ revive delivers superior cleaning, improved sebum removal, and less visible residue while leaving hair visibly cleaner, more manageable and lustrous. Advantage™ revive maintains a level of shine and color that is nearly at parity to freshly washed hair, where starch-based formulas mute the vibrancy of hair and reduce its overall level of shine and color by 80%.

Advantage™ revive polymer is formulation flexible, up to 50% lower than that of usual dosage levels and can be used in a variety of formats such as alcoholic and hydroalcoholic aerosol sprays, mousses, pastes and powders.
