Croda partnered with The Centre for Visual Computing at the University of Bradford in the United Kingdom to create the Hair Dynamics Test to measure the movement of healthy hair and compare it to the movement of damaged hair. Then, the research team at Croda set out to create a chemistry that would specifically seek to improve the movement of damaged hair by reducing inter-fiber friction.

Tocopherols and tocotrienols are the major constituents of almond oil, safflower oil and palm oil. They are necessary for the normal growth and metabolism of healthy skin. These oils were formulated in nourishing skin care products and massage creams as part of stable o/w emulsions and were found to have excellent storage stability, flow properties, spreadability and moisturizing properties.

Polyquaternium-74 is a synthetic high performance conditioning polymer whose flocculation and deposition characteristics enable it to match or outperform traditional conditioning polymers in detangling, overall hair conditioning, shine enhancement and buildup reduction when combined, as shown here, with a submicron dimethicone emulsion. Benefits are noted for 2-in-1 shampoo formulations.

Here, a micro-wax dispersion is shown to provide conditioning and anti-hair breakage properties. The authors incorporated the material into test shampoos, compared them with two silicone-based benchmarks, and found the micro-wax shampoos provided comparable conditioning and improved hair breakage prevention performance. Results were confirmed in a hair washing test.

While humectants and occlusive agents are the most commonly accepted approaches to moisturize skin, earlier work indicates a third approach: orthorhombic phase stabilization. In the present article, the author describes this novel mechanism of hydration and its detection by conventional and nonconventional methods, suggesting this approach could serve as a basis for all skin moisturizing therapies.
