This Moisturizing Hair Styling Powder is an innovative formulation using Evonik’s “dry water” technology!
This formulation features AEROSIL® R 812 S which is a fumed silica that has many applications in hair care products. This ingredient provides a volumizing effect to styling aids, and since Dry Water contains mostly an aqueous phase by weight, the formulation also moisturizes the hair. AEROSIL® R 812 S provides effective rheology control in complex liquid systems.
