Compounding Opportunities in Hair Therapy
Hair care represents one of the leading segments in personal care worldwide. With consumer product knowledge being greater than ever before, the demand for unique and innovative hair care formulations that are non-irritating, natural, multifunctional, and customized is immense. This is particularly pertinent when treating specific conditions of the scalp and hair (e.g., dandruff, seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis, hair loss, and sensitive skin). To keep up with the specific and complex demands of consumers, compounding pharmacists can play a vital role in developing tailored formulations that include or exclude certain ingredients in the required concentration and form. In addressing current consumer trends and needs in hair therapy, this webinar sets out to introduce the latest resources and developments in hair care compounding; naturally-derived cosmetic active ingredients, nutraceuticals, medicated solutions, and premade bases that are concentrated, non-irritating, and functional. Explore the opportunities available to you to expand and improve the quality of your compounding practice. Become acquainted with hair care compounding solutions that are innovative, efficient, effective, and economical.
