Technical Seminars Theatre


Silicone polymers are smart materials that can be added at low levels to help conditioning products achieve exceptional protection, correct the signs of hair aging, and restore healthy hair properties.

The seminar will focus on innovative aminosilicones fine-tuned with organic functionalities to address hair health and the needs of damaged hair. In particular, film-forming properties to help conditioning products provide extra protection to the cuticle, targeted deposition on damaged hair, and in-situ crosslinking for durable hydrophobicity, will be highlighted.
