Featured Prototypes

Each year, the Personal Care Lab debuts new hair care, skin care, and color cosmetic prototypes at industry trade shows. These prototypes serve to showcase trends in the personal care market, as well as unique uses for ingredients available at Brenntag.

The prototypes contain:

  • finished starter formulas that highlight ingredients from all of our suppliers
  • formulary cards for each prototype

Note: Prototypes undergo stability testing at 40oC for a period of three months. These prototypes are also intended for use as starting formulas only and may be altered or modified as needed.
