& Formulations at NYSCC Suppliers’ Day

At New York Society of Cosmetic Chemists (NYSCC) Suppliers’ Day in New York May 2-3, Dow will showcase a new textured hair solutions program, featuring five formulations designed to help address these unique consumer challenges.

Organic & Silicone Ingredients for Hair Care


To tap in to the extraordinary market potential for hair care formulators and brand owners, Dow developed this collection of formulations which feature organic and silicone ingredients. This further highlights the impact of its newly combined capabilities and portfolios with Dow and Dow Corning.

Each of the five prototypes is expertly formulated to combat common textured hair issues to help consumers hydrate, soften and control their hair while embracing its natural shape. Application testing of five formulations in the textured hair program produced better results than controls and commercial benchmarks.

North America market leader, Dow Home & Personal Care, Verna Talcott said:

“Through a review of current consumer market research we found that even consumers who have a ‘holy grail’ product are willing to try new products and seek something better. There is an unmet consumer need and we have solutions that enable our customers to deliver products that solve the unique needs of textured hair consumers.”

From Hair to Skin and Sun Care


The business will also highlight its new Dow Corning® ES-5373 Formulation Aid, a silicone emulsifier designed for the preparation of oil-in-water and silicone-in-water emulsions to create a wide range of skin care products such as lotions, sun care, foundations and make-up removers.

Beauty and personal care trends are constantly evolving. By the time a brand develops a product based on the latest trend, a new trend may have already emerged. Dow understands that while meeting today’s consumer desires is important, staying ahead of tomorrow’s trends is what drives success.

LabSense™ collaboration platform, Dow’s collaboration model, gives brand owners access to plug-and-play product concepts reflecting regional consumer trends along with differentiation opportunities, expert insights, formulation testing, analytics and tutorials on how to best formulate with Dow solutions.

Global Strategic Marketing Director for skin and sun care, Dow Home & Personal Care, Stephanie Sandrock-Beunat said:

“LabSense™ [collaboration platform] gives brand owners fast access to Dow’s premium ingredients and expertise, and it also allows them access to finished product concepts and demonstrations. It gives brands the competitive edge to accelerate their innovations and bring their products to market faster and more efficiently.”

The integration of Dow Corning silicone solutions into Dow has broadened the portfolio, opening the door to new applications and possibilities of award-winning technologies.

Sandrock-Beunat said:

“Dow Corning’s market-leading silicone expertise coupled with Dow Home and Personal Care Solutions’ existing market knowledge and solutions portfolio means brand owners have more access to the products and solutions they need to create high-quality, multifunctional products that meet today’s trends.”
