Croda International Plc, which uses smart science to create, make and sell speciality chemicals that improve lives, is delighted to unveil new data for SensaLuxe DF, an emollient ester that delivers consumer perceivable improvements, for hair that is smoother, softer and more manageable. 

Consumers are seeking hair conditioning solutions for hair that looks and feels good. However, when it comes to finding the most suitable product for our hair, the situation can easily get difficult. Not all ingredients will have benefits on every hair type. In addition, efficacy is not the only purchasing criteria, consumers are now looking for sustainable options and putting a greater emphasis on a sense of well-being, which reduces the scope of choices. 

SensaLuxe DF is a naturally derived, biodegradable and non-aquatoxic ingredient. Effective in both rinse-off and leave-on treatments, it provides a novel alternative to traditional hair care actives to enhance the condition of damaged hair in its dry state and delivers a positive experience to consumers with its range of sensory benefits, giving hair a luxury feel. With further studies performed on type 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 (according to L’Oreal curl classification1), inclusive properties have been demonstrated with the ability of SensaLuxe DF to provide all these benefits to most hair types. 

Aude Lemoine-Dessaint, Marketing Manager in Beauty Care commented: “Every day at Croda, we are living our target to deliver ‘Smart Science to Improve Lives’. Being an inclusive hair care solution provider allows us to embed this purpose and to offer the possibility for everyone to embrace who they are regardless of their hair type”.
