IFF showcases advanced bioscience capabilities with new-to-the-world hair conditioning biopolymer, AURIST™ AGC. AURIST™ AGC is enabled by Designed Enzymatic Biopolymers (DEB) technology, developed to break the trade-off between performance and sustainability in functional ingredients. DEB uses advanced biotechnology to create novel, nature-inspired biopolymers that drive performance enhancement in beauty and personal care. Polysaccharides developed by DEB can also be made biodegradable to meet the increased regulatory and consumer pressures to replace some traditional polymers.
AURIST™ AGC is the first ingredient enabled by the new DEB platform: a water-soluble, biodegradable cationic hair conditioning biopolymer with superior performance attributes in smoothing, softening, detangling and conditioning compared to incumbent technology.
AURIST™ AGC is part of the new AURIST™ functional line launched in February 2023. AURIST™ is a family of sustainable biopolymers based on responsibly-sourced, natural sugars, enabled by IFF’s cutting-edge biotechnology capabilities, and designed to elevate sensorial experiences in personal care.
