RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. (PRWEB) March 18, 2008
"We're excited about bringing this new polymer technology to the personal care market," Jeffrey Welker, president of Dow Reichhold, said. "The personal care and cosmetic market is extremely innovative, showing a continual stream of new product introductions which aligns well with our commitment to the same."
The technology behind the new initiative for the cosmetics industry is based on work led by Dr. Venkataram Krishnan, director of advanced product development at Dow Reichhold. His research team identified unique functional characteristics in these newly developed polymers that will add multiple attributes when employed across a wide range of bath and shower, skin and hair care products. Based on those attributes, the company is already working with a number of formulators in preparation for new product introductions.
"Our goal is to enable a new generation of personal care products based on the unique functionality and properties of this family of advanced polymers," Dr. Krishnan explained. "We are encouraged by what others have to say about our polymers."
