Hair Care Formulation

Hair mousses, oils, serum, gels, shampoos, lotions, conditioners, masks, emulsions… the list of hair care products can be extended, with lots of new formulae and types that keep emerging in the market nowadays.

Due to hair being exposed to the negative impact of external agents (including sun, hair dyes, permanents and other chemical agents), the leading cosmetic manufacturers strive for the development of advanced hair care formulations, which do not only ensure the best quality of cosmetic products, but, what really matters, provide a strengthening, conditioning and repairing effect upon hair.

Major Hair Care Product Components: What Are They?

Some active components that may be included in a formulation are:

  • Silicones (these are mainly used as conditioning agents in hair conditioners, shampoos, hair masks, anhydrous systems etc.)
  • Peptides
  • Amino acids
  • Plant-derived stem cells

One of the major tasks of a professional formulator is to understand the way a customer uses the product and identify the key indicators of the product’s benefits. This is not easy to do.

Please note, AUS Cosmetics does not do their own hair care formulations, however we can advise you regarding your own formulations and we do have expert contracts in the industry that we can put you in touch with.
