Formulations

Hair Care

In this issue our selection of formulations covers products for hair care.

Conditioners are playing an increasingly important role in the hair care sector, but a key factor for new conditioners is convenience - almost nobody has time these days to wait several minutes for the product to do its work before rinsing off.

The Shampoo: Conditioning, shine from Dow Corning – effectively a 3-in-1 product – is a practical solution. The Natural Leave-in Conditioning Spray from Inolex is not only convenient but is also in line with the current trend towards natural cosmetics. Natural Rinse-off Hair Conditioner by Dr. Straetmans also reflects this trend, but the classic rinse-off process is used here.

Another multifunctional product is the translucent leave-on Styling Conditioning – Spray and Mousse by Clariant. Not only is the hair conditioned but the product also acts as a styling aid, as does the Styling and Conditioning Cream from Cognis.

The very varied mix of basic formulations that have been specially submitted for this issue by ingredients manufacturers can be downloaded free of charge from our web site. You will find your access codes on the Internet button on page 3 and 39 of the printed edition.
