  • Mixing PVP and AMP Acrylate Copolymer for Pomade

    Hi everyone!

    I’ve recently started experimenting with making my own water-based pomade. And I accidentally stumbled upon a formula that creates a pomade that I really like but that has the issue that it does not pour into the container. I have to really dig it out of the beaker. And I’ve been experimenting with ways to fix that problem. I’ve tried adding PVP (Polyvinylpyrrolidone) to the water-phase of my formula, but that turned out to be a big failure. The problem is that when AMP Acrylate Copolymer is combined with PVP (even if they were in separate beakers beforehand), it creates these chunks that simply do not break down in the water-phase. How can I combine these two ingredients without creating chunks? Now I recognize I could be asking a super-dumb question here and I apologize about that, but I’ve been doing this for about a week and have no serious background in chemistry.
