It is supplied as an easy to use 30% dispersion that thickens upon neutralization. A multi-functional robust polymer, SurfaThix™ N may be used in clear and opaque skin and hair rinse-off formulations to achieve excellent clarity, superior thickening and comparable suspension to benchmark polymer. Single step neutralization allows continuous processing during manufacturing. An all-in-one solution, the polymer enables manufacturers to produce various surfactant bases, high salt and cationic rinse-off formulations more easily and efficiently without formulation trade-offs. view less
