Its application in cosmetics:
When it comes to polymers, people may immediately think of plastics, synthetic fibers, elastomers, adhesives, coatings, etc. that can be found everywhere in daily life. In fact, polymers are also closely related to our hair. Not to mention that the hair itself is composed of a biopolymer (keratin); polymers used as cosmetic raw materials can also be used in hair care products.
It is ubiquitous and essential. The polymers used in hair care products can be divided into water-soluble and water-insoluble according to their solubility; they can be divided into cationic, anionic, nonionic, and amphoteric according to the type of charge; they are divided according to different sources. For natural polymers and synthetic polymers. The use of these polymers in various products varies.
