Improve Haircare with Multifunctional Ingredients

The Importance of Haircare, Beyond Just Clean Hair

Haircare has evolved from pure cleanliness to a holistic approach. This drives demand to improve haircare with multifunctional ingredients. This includes repair, protection, conditioning, styling and combing. Consumers are well informed on the claims and functions of hair products, and the desired results.

The demand for hair care products that address specific hair problems such as hair loss, dryness, frizz and dandruff has risen. A new era of multifunctional ingredients are trending, and have revolutionized the hair care industry. This blog explores the benefits of our multi-functional ingredient, Oat Lipid E, for formulating hair care products with the potential to transform your hair.

Transparency in ingredients

Transparency in beauty products begins with understanding the ingredients used in the formulations. Today, consumers are seeking brands which prioritise transparency in the ingredients, sustainability, ethical sourcing, and a clean formulation approach. 

  • Clean formulations: Consumers are becoming consciously aware of the ingredients that go in the formulations which they’re using. Thus, transparency has become a significant factor in the decision-making process of the consumers.
  • Sustainability and ethical sourcing: Transparency doesn’t limit to ingredient disclosure but also encompasses the product life cycle, covering sustainable sourcing and manufacturing processes. Environmentally conscious people associate with brands whose values are in tune with their personal beliefs such as minimising the carbon footprint, minimise waste, etc.
  • Honest Claims: It is necessary to back the claims with scientific evidence, wherever necessary. Consumers are more inclined towards products which are honest about the efficacy and limitations of their products.
