Shaving and antiperspirant ingredients

Shaving, hair removal, antiperspirant and deodorant products are used universally and now require other value-added benefits like moisturisation and hair minimising.

More than effective shaving and sweat and odour control, these products now offer consumers other value-added benefits including moisturisation and hair minimising, whilst leaving no residue. These additional claims enhance the offering, by opening up opportunities for product differentiation within these growing categories.

We offer many ingredients that have shown to be effective in creating stable formulations in what can be a challenging application area.

The inclusion of high pH actives into formulation, and the development of a large variety formats, such as sprays (aerosol), sticks, creams or roll-ons, require expert ingredient and formulating knowledge.

In addition, we also offer ingredients for added consumer benefits and to deliver expected sensory cues, for example where a dry-feeling is expected upon application.
