To the scientific eye, hair represents morphology, structure, or pigmentation. Its mechanical and surface properties are carefully studied and measured.

But hair is also a language and a means of transformation. It has the power to change our mood and redefine our identity! Hair is an extraordinary source of endless creative possibilities.

At Symrise, hair care ingredients are never just products but the result of cross-category teamwork, benefiting from our acknowledged expertise in skin care, botanicals, functionals as well as fragrances. Driven by the emerging needs of contemporary consumers, thoroughly investigated and substantiated, each ingredient is designed to open new perspectives, facilitate innovation and manufacturing, and help our customers invent the products of tomorrow.
