PZ Cussons, for its Charles Worthington Salon at Home Straight & Smooth hair treatment. This kit leaves hair straighter and smoother for up to 40 days. It is based on a treatment containing Cysteamine—an innovative, gentle and effective straightening active that works by re-programming the hair so that its natural tendencies to frizz and curl are prevented, even in humid conditions. The company's patent-pending technology is blended with proteins and argan oil to leave hair looking smoother, healthier and more manageable for longer.
Procter & Gamble, for its SK-II Cellumination Mask In-Lotion. This daily use product delivers immediate and long-lasting hydration to the skin, similar to the effects of a substrate mask. In addition, it incorporates active ingredients for skin whitening/pigment control, epidermis thickening and glycation control. By combining these benefits, the lotion aims to holistically whiten the skin. Based on hexapeptide-11, a yeast fermentation lysate, the product was shown in vitro to have a thickening effect on epidermal fibroblasts by up-regulating the genes responsible for collagen and elastin production.
