Welcome to the future of hair conditioning
AURIST™ AGC is a water-soluble, biodegradable cationic conditioning biopolymer that delivers conditioning benefits on hair, improving both wet and dry combability. Developed using IFF’s Designed Enzymatic Biopolymers (DEB) technology, AURIST™ AGC is a new-to-the-world polysaccharide derived from the enzymatic polymerization of glucose from responsibly sourced natural sugars.
Compatible with a wide range of commonly used haircare ingredients, AURIST™ AGC can significantly improve wet and dry combability compared with incumbent technology.
Easy to Formulate With
AURIST™ AGC does not require pH neutralisation. It is supplied in the format of an odourless liquid that is easy to pour, and is cold processable, with no premix required.
Designed to be readily biodegradable to meet increased consumer and regulatory pressure to replace certain synthetic polymers.
Enabled by the Designed Enzymatic Biopolymers (DEB) platform that allows creation of new-to-the-world class of polysaccharides that have better performance, higher purity, and design flexibility greater than synthetic materials.

DESIGNED ENZYMATIC BIOPOLYMERS (DEB)
A biocatalysis process to enable development of tailored polysaccharides
This innovation gives rise to a new-to-the-world class of alpha-glucan polysaccharides from the enzymatic polymerization of glucose from sucrose with controlled morphology and structure. The Designed Enzymatic Biopolymers bring three important benefits that makes the alpha-glucan molecule superior in performance, helping break the trade-off between natural and synthetic polymers in beauty and personal care. They are highly customizable, have excellent structural uniformity, and can be designed to be biodegradable.
