Jaguar® C-500 STD is a cationic polymer derived from the natural guar gum with low aqueous viscosity. Jaguar® C-500 STD is an excellent additive to aid in the deposition of actives such as silicones, oils, anti- dandruff agents on hair without any build up associated. It is ideal for applications in which deposition of actives from a shampoo or conditioner requires little viscosifying properties.

Jaguar® C-500 STD is classified as inherently ultimately biodegradable following the “Beauty Biodeg Score”, a reliable and easy to understand scale measuring the level of biodegradability of beauty care ingredients. Indeed, ≥70% of the ingredient can be degraded by microorganisms in the environment over 28 days.
