Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/​VP Copolymer

Also-called-like-this: Aristoflex AVC
What-it-does: viscosity controlling


A kind of polymer (big molecule from repeated subunits) that helps to create beautiful gel-like textures. It's also a texturizer and thickener for oil-in-water emulsions. It gives products a good skin feel and does not make the formula tacky or sticky. 

It works over a wide pH range and is used between 0.5-1.2%.
