Polyquaternium-7 is a clear, colorless liquid used widely in cosmetics and personal care products, including shampoos, conditioners and other hair products. Low acrylamide, paraben free, aqueous, cationic copolymer developed for improved compatibility and clarity in anionic surfactant systems.
Polyquaternium 7 is an anti-static agent and film former that is found primarily in hair care products such as shampoos, conditioners, and hair sprays, but is also seen in bath soaps and cleansing products. It prevents the buildup of static electricity and forms a thin coating on the hair shaft that is absorbed by the hair, inhibiting the hair from absorbing moisture and preventing it from creating frizz. Total compatibility with non-ionic and amphoteric materials.
