Filter applications by:
The multitude of existing hair care and styling products reduce the appearance of damaged hair and at the same time, achieve the effects desired by the consumer. The use of a hair conditioner after shampooing makes the hair easier to comb and increases the bounce of the hair.
Shampoo is generally made by combining a surfactant, often sodium lauryl sulphate and/or sodium laureth sulphate with a co-surfactant, typically cocamidopropyl betaine. Sulfate free shampoos on amino acid surfactant basis, like cocoyl glycinate, cocoyl glutamate etc., are well known in the market. Other ingredients are used to ease the rinsing or to repair the damage of the hair. Many shampoos are pearlescent.
Hair gel is a hairstyling product that is used to stiffen hair into a particular hairstyle. The main types of hair gels used today range from gels, liquid sprays, pomades and waxes to creams and serums.
Hair colouring can be divided into two main types, permanent and semi-permanent. Permanent hair colouring is achieved through the use of oxidation dyes. The process is typically performed under basic conditions. Semi-permanent hair dye only penetrates the hair shaft and therefore will be washed out after repeated washing.
The most important group of products in the field of oral/dental hygiene is toothpastes. There is a multitude of different products which orient themselves towards specific target groups (children, adolescents, adults) or specific indications e.g. sensitive teeth and gums.
Sun Care products (Sunscreens) are available as lotion, spray or gel. They absorb or reflect a part of the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) radiation. Sunscreens contain an organically chemical compound which absorbs UV light and/or inorganic particulates which reflect, scatter and absorb UV light.
Deodorants are substances applied to the body to act against body odour caused by bacterial growth. A sub-group of deodorants, antiperspirants, affect odour as well as prevent sweating. Deodorants combined with antiperspirant agents frequently include aluminium compounds such as aluminium chloride or chlorine hydrate.
