Acrylates / Lauryl Acrylate / Stearyl Acrylate / Ethylamine Oxide Methacrylate Copolymer
Acrylates are chemical compounds proven to be safe for cosmetic use. They have slightly different functions depending on their composition, but they are predominately used in gel-based products.
Copolymer compounds create a water-repellent base for products with waterproof qualities. They act by creating a thin flexible film that prevents water washing the product away.
Ethylene oxide is a key raw material in the production of surfactants and detergents adding to their foaming and skin-conditioning qualities.
We use this as a base in The Big Tease styling gel. It conditions the hair by coating it with a thin film.
