    "We are delighted by the positive response from several pre-launch partners regarding the benefits of PolySaf 5600. There has been a great deal of interest in evaluating this material," Doug Johnson, global marketing manager for the Personal Care Group at Dow Reichhold, said "We look forward to introducing PolySaf 5600 to more formulators during NY SCC Suppliers' Day later this month."

PolySaf 5600 polymer is a multifunctional water-based polymer that imparts many benefits, including: deodorancy; clean after feel; antistatic properties; film forming ability; non-irritating and good foaming. It is also compatible with a wide range of other personal care ingredients, enabling future new product development efforts.

"The unique patents-pending cationic emulsion technology behind PolySaf 5600 polymer gives formulators of personal care products a new level of R&D flexibility," Dr. Venkataram Krishnan, new business technology leader at Dow Reichhold, explained. "In addition to the many functional benefits of the polymer itself, its compatibility and benign nature allow for a wide range of possible solutions. We're excited to see what formulators will do with this new design and development freedom."
