Solvay launches Jaguar® OPTIMA conditioning solution for silicone- and sulfate-free, oil-based and oil-free shampoos

Paris, France, 31-3-2014 — /EuropaWire/ — Solvay launches Jaguar® OPTIMA, the ideal conditioning solution to meet market demands for silicone- and sulfate-free, oil-based and oil-free shampoos. The natural, guar-based system will be unveiled at this year’s In-Cosmetics in Hamburg, Germany (Booth 1G20).

Most consumers choose their shampoo based on their hair type which can include normal, slightly damaged, or color treated hair. These choices are based on specific benefits the shampoos can deliver in the main areas of cleansing, shine, smoothness and texture. Many discerning consumers are demanding formulations free of sulfates or silicones that are identified with greasy or oily build up in hair.

This trend has created formulation challenges for the industry. To answer this challenge Solvay has developed Jaguar® OPTIMA a naturally-derived conditioning polymer.

Jaguar® OPTIMA boosts lightweight conditioning

• Naturally-derived and based on the guar bean polymer

• Outstanding conditioning performance in sulfate-free and silicone-free formulations

• Offers formulation flexibility for light deposition of silicone and oils

• Creates rich, white creamy foam

• Solution for natural shampoo systems

• Sleek wet feel, light dry hair

This non eco-toxic conditioning guar delivers exceptional performance for formulating hair care solutions suitable for all types of hair, including fine, dry, color-treated and damaged hair.

Jaguar® OPTIMA is the solution for natural silicone-free formulations. This technology offers a superior hair softness and suppleness, leaving hair shiny and full of health.

The balanced shampoo leaving clean roots and soft lengths is a reality now with Jaguar® OPTIMA!
