Doing-it-for-the-boysMen use male grooming products because it makes them feel good, gives them greater confidence and will help them get ahead in life – and not as a way of being more attractive to the opposite sex, according to new research by market researcher SPA Future Thinking.

It’s not just the pretty boys using male grooming products any more – the survey of 1 000 UK men, conducted in 2011, also found that the metrosexual man has grown up: 51 per cent of men who regularly use grooming products are married or living with a partner.

BioPlex Cetylsil PHSBioPlex Cetylsil PHS from Biosil Technologies yields a reduced irritation profile which is typically experienced with Cetrimonium Chloride. BioPlex Cetylsil PHS is an excellent ingredient to incorporate into sensitive skin and scalp applications. This proprietary ingredient combines a fatty, quaternary compound and a carboxyated silicone.

Designed to be ideal to incorporate into high alkaline hair treatments, BioPlex Cetylsil PHS is water soluble. High alkaline systems such as hair relaxers and permanent waving solutions affect the cuticle of the hair and can cause significant damage. The addition of conditioning agents is critical in developing formulations which will result in hair that is manageable, shiny and healthy in appearance.
