Case Study: Silicone Deposition on Hair

When key decisions are needed for hair care formulation, product performance, or R&D efforts, analytical data from Alliance Technologies enables our clients to quickly identify the best formulations and compare competitive products.

Our analysis objective was to compare the silicone residue of our client’s shampoo to competing products. Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) images revealed microscopic surface features of the treated hair and atomic spectroscopy (ICP) quantified the level of silicone deposition. Our analysis provided data to support our client’s marketing claims.
