Bayer Presents Baycusan Line

April 3, 2008

Bayer MaterialScience has developed Baycusan, a line of polyurethanes specifically designed for the cosmetics industry that offer a number of advantages over conventional polymers. They contain no solvents, making them environmentally friendly and can be used to formulate skin and hair care products that emit little or no volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

As a film former in hair styling products, Baycusan PU dispersions offer significantly greater hold at high humidity than the standard polymers. The new dispersions can also be used in peel-off masks.
Used in decorative cosmetics, the new polyurethanes improve the water resistance of mascara, lipsticks and eyeliner products.
