Ashland Specialty Ingredients offers industry-leading products,
technologies and resources for solving formulation and product-performance challenges. Using natural, synthetic and semisynthetic polymers derived from plant and seed extract, cellulose
ethers and vinyl pyrrolidones, as well as acrylics, Ashland offers
comprehensive and innovative solutions for today’s demanding
consumer and industrial applications.
The Consumer Specialties division brings together consumer science, applications development, materials science and polymer
synthesis R&D to help marketers of personal and home care
products move new innovations into the marketplace. The business offers a range of market-based and technical-based solutions modules designed to support the formulation and launch of
highly differentiated products.
If a manufacturer requires a market-based solution to better serve
its customers, Ashland is able to back specific consumer needs all
the way to ingredient technologies and move forward again with
unique formulation concepts. Moreover, if a technical formulation
challenge needs to be resolved with novel formulation architecture,
Ashland looks within its broad toolbox of ingredient technologies
with the potential to significantly improve formulation outcomes.
As the care industry’s leading solutions destination, Ashland is continually advancing both its ingredient portfolio and service offering
to help marketers create products that win with consumers. Now
more than ever, the care industries call on Ashland for new ways to
delight consumers, new reasons to launch unique products in the
marketplace and new options to resolve formulation challenges.

•;HydroSheer™ II sun care formulation technology, a system
designed to modify emulsion behavior in such a way that
finished lotions appear clear or virtually clear during rubout
on wet skin.
•;N-DurHance™ A-1000 conditioning polymer, a new conditioning technology demonstrated to restore and improve the
look of healthy hair over the course of several wash cycles.
Based on a homopolymer of acrylamido-N-propyltrimethyl-ammonium chloride, N-DurHance A-1000 polymer lends hydrophobic properties to hair in a way that affords an enduring
conditioning effect. For the first time, consumers may perceive
the benefits of softer, smoother, shinier and more manageable
hair over the course of successive shampoo applications.
