We offer a wide range of biophysical test methods for determining the efficacy of hair care and hairstyling products, as well as for carrying out corresponding claim support studies. In our specially equipped hair laboratory, we investigate conditioning, strengthening, and protective product properties. The different methods can also be combined here. In addition to the biophysical methods, we also offer in vivo proof of efficacy such as the hair gloss test by means of panel test, anti-dandruff studies, and of course, studies to investigate products that are supposed to promote hair growth as well.

Abstract: The hair is a complex structure with many variations in coloration and texture, and the brittleness and susceptibility to mechanical injury which causes hair damage, is a common occurrence. Furthermore hair is very easily damaged through exposure to chemicals, the environment and daily styling. With the development of a plethora of innovative hair care products supporting a global multi-billion dollar industry, there is an increasing need for more sophisticated methods to meet the evolution in these product innovations and consumer understanding. Moreover, such methods are also important in light of the legislative requirements for marketing claims substantiation. Methods described herein have been developed, and evolve to ensure reproducibility, validity and relevance from both the clinical and average consumer perspectives.
