Film formers are key ingredients to many cosmetics. They are essential in hair styling formulation to provide hair hold and manageability, and is an ingredient of choice to improve efficiency and impart water resistance to suncare products. Because of the lack of adequate natural alternatives, synthetic film formers such as acrylate copolymers are still commonly used in such formulations.

Baycusan® eco film formers, based on at least 50% renewable resources, enable both high-performing & sustainable cosmetics. For instance, Baycusan® eco E 1000 hair styling polymer allows creating modern styling products with outstanding water & humidity resistance and great sensory.
