Advanced Hair Care

Heat, cold, sun, stress, wind or weather are all possible damaging factors that our hair must face on a daily base. With Genadvance®, Clariant offers a solution to the problem, that due to meticulous research and a whole new scientific approach yields the potential to revolutionize the global hair care market.

And since there is no hair alike, a single solution cannot exist either. This is why the Genadvance® advanced hair care range consists of three hair conditioning ingredients each targeting different hair issues: Life for dull hair, Repair for damaged hair and Hydra for dry hair.

Clariant’s sustainable Licocene® solutions are low molecular polyolefins manufactured by metallocene catalysts. They offer outstanding cohesive and adhesive strength and are highly adaptable in many different applications.

When pocket spring mattresses are assembled with our ready-to-use Licocene® hot-melt adhesives, they emit less odor and hazardous volatile organic compounds compared to alternative materials. This is because our adhesives are 100% polymer-based and free from substances under regulatory scrutiny, such as tackifiers and plasticizers.
