Abstract

Deposition of benefit agents from a surfactant system onto hair and skin often provides consumer perceivable performance benefits such as conditioning, moisturization, and protection from damage. One potential goal of a formulator is to enhance the deposition of these benefit agents in order to maximize the benefit while minimizing cost. This invention relates to liquid surfactant systems containing one or more benefit agents whose deposition will be enhanced by the addition of a deposition aid polymer. This technology would be useful for many personal care applications including shampoos, body wash, facial wash, liquid soaps, etc.
