This Dry Shampoo formulation can be used as efficient base for aerosol dry shampoo concentrates together with around 70% propellant. The formulation can be further optimized with the addition of hair active components.

Bentone Gel® VS-5PC V HV creates an easy to use dry shampoo with good suspension of the Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate during storage. Most importantly, it promotes ease of redispersion of the starch providing even application and preventing nozzle blockage.
