is a low molecular weight polymer (Hydrogenated Polycyclopentadiene), available dispersed in C13-15 Alkane, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Isododecane or Squalane. It is a low odor, oil soluble resin which provides water resistance and improves wear of the formula. It is an excellent alternative to Rosin based derivatives. KOBOGUARD® HRCC and HRPC
are patented ternary wax resin composites, with unique synergy among all components. They provide adhesion and substantivity of the cosmetic formulation to the skin, hair, nail or lashes and improve water-resistance, rub-resistance, and transfer-resistance. They are composed of Carnauba Wax which originates in Brazil and meets the Brazilian Biodiversity Law (Federal Law No. 13,123/2015). KOBOGUARD® HRCC
uses Castorwax instead of Polyethylene Wax, present in KOBOGUARD® HRPC. Because Castorwax is a more polar material than Polyethylene, HRCC shows enhanced solubility in CCT and Castor Oil making it better in lip products.
