Shampoos

Ingredients for Shampoo 

Description: Shampoo is a hair care product used to clean the hair and scalp. Shampoo opens the outer layer of the hair to remove grease and dirt from hair strands and scalp. Shampoo must be applied to wet hair and massaged into the scalp and hair and then should be rinsed out. There are many different types of shampoo: for normal, dry, damaged, colored or oily hair. There are also shampoos for everyday use, for babies, anti-dandruff, sulfate-free and herbal shampoo, 2-in-1 shampoo, medicated shampoo and even shampoo in solid form. 

Trends and Ingredients: more and more consumers require sulfate-free shampoo, which gives a gentler cleanse, recommended for curly hair and people with sensitive skin. Shampoos without silicones are also becoming more popular and more visible on the market. Proponents say that silicones are not good for the health of the hair. Another trend is a solid shampoo bar (to reduce the use of plastic packaging materials). IngreCore offers ingredients to help you formulate shampoos adhering to the latest trends:

  • Decyl Glucoside50 64CE is a natural non-ionic surfactant, which is very mild and friendly to the skin.  
  • Our Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate produces high foam and in combination with other surfactants it aids in reducing irritation and enhancing foamability. The product is 7 times milder than SLES.  
  • Polyquaternium 10-3000HC (PQ10-3000HC) is a great polymer for shampoos.  
  • IngreCore SCI 85-G can be used for personal care products in bar form.
