    The Hair Gel Matrix

    Hair Styling It’s a World of Numbers

    BASF’s Care Creations® carried out a benchmark study of European styling gels; 23 market products were tested from leading brands and own label. With our validated performance test methods and range of raw materials we offer solutions with clearly differentiated performance that open up new opportunities in the market.

    Bending Stiffness and Curl Retention were measured and performance was compared to on-pack claims.
