With the personal care market in China continuing to expand, products are specializing to target on the various needs of the customers at different times of the day. For instance, hair care products may be expected to provide better shining effects and protection during the day, while night cream would be ideally up for the task of repairing in the evening. Such needs go hand-in-hand with the growing appreciation for naturally derived personal care products. Clariant's personal care ingredients answer the call by providing natural formulations that cater for the needs of the consumers in the morning, afternoon and evening. The line-up of products at PCHi China includes Plantasens Abyssinian Oil, Plantasens Natural Emulsifiers, Plantasens Olive LD and Velsan SC.

Clariant's Plantasens Abyssinian Oil, a native to the sun-drenched windy open African highlands, offers benefits only possible from the African earth and sun.

Formulations based on the Plantasens Abyssinian Oil provide shine and improve manageability of hair, while nourishing and hydrating the skin for protection. It is a perfect choice for hair care and skin care products such as shampoo, conditioners, face cream and cleansing milk.
