    California Prop 65 Statement: The following statement is made in order to comply with the California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986. This product is not known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm.

    • Aristoflex® AVC is sensitive to electrolytes and is not suitable for use in certain surfactant systems (such as cleansing products) which may contain high levels of salts.
    • Hydrolyzed proteins typically contain salts and their use with Aristoflex® AVC may result in loss of viscosity.
    • Use in products intended to have a pH lower than pH 4.0 may lead to acidic cleavage of the polymer on prolonged storage resulting in viscosity loss.
    • As Aristoflex® AVC is an ammonium salt, pH higher than 9.0 will release ammonia
