Personal care ingredients for textured hair care products
Cosmetics and pharmaceutical manufacturing in Africa have grown significantly in recent years. So have health awareness and aspirational consumer trends, creating a vibrant market for beauty and personal care products. This presents an opportunity for brands to tap into the needs of African consumers by producing high quality and efficacious hair and skin care products.
The aspirational consumer is a key theme in this edition of Pharmaceutical & Cosmetic Review Africa – your go-to technical guide for formulating and manufacturing cosmetics and pharmaceuticals in Africa.
In the pharmaceutical focus, we explore coating technologies and level sensors for tableting and encapsulation. Turn to
