Called CurlScience, the goal of the program is to deliver innovative product concepts, new benchmarks for performance and higher levels of value in customer formulations for this fast-growing market segment, company executives said.
Within the initiative, R&D and concept development work has been conducted by National Starch to deliver state-of-the-art products including shampoos, combing creams, mousses, gels, lotions, milks and serums.
