Nouryon makes their documentation available in the regions indicated below:

BIOSTYLE® XH polymer is a naturally-derived hair fixative polymer designed for use in clear, stiff holding hair gels, mousses, and other styling aids where volumizing properties are desired. BIOSTYLE® XH polymer provides the on-hair performance, exceptional clarity, and consumer preferred rheology that are typically associated with synthetic fixative polymers, yet BIOSTYLE® XH polymer is partially derived from renewable resources. This high molecular weight, proprietary hybrid polymer represents a new way for formulators to create more sustainable, hard holding styling products while maintaining cost-in-use targets without any sacrifice of performance properties.
