Technical training for new hair care ingredients

July 2012

In July, IMCD Personal care team attended an advanced technical training on new Belsil grades with Wacker Chemie’s technical team. In-depth technical presentations and workshops were followed by formulation sessions carried out at IMCD’s application laboratory based in Italy, where the team displayed its technical expertise.

Among the several new Wacker products, the main focus was on hair care with new amodimethicone emulsions and gums that fit perfectly with the latest hair care trends in the market: colour retention and heat protection for the hair. These products in hair conditioners and shampoo formulations are easy to use and  have shown excellent test results as protectors of hair damage caused by heat, as well as enhancing of high gloss, silky touch and the colour retention of hair.
