Responding to both the science and consumers’ love for their locks, this edition of Cosmetics & Toiletries opens with a close examination of textured hair types and provides tips to formulate products for especially curly hair. Beyond hair, this issue speaks to ethical and sustainable cosmetics R&D and finally, with the newly revived "Ingredient Review" column about sclerotium gum. We hope this hearkening to hair and sustainability teases out solutions to your R&D snags.
