“A need for multicultural solutions has arisen globally, including in developed markets, such as the US, that are becoming increasingly diverse,” said Denise Costrini, Marketing Manager - Hair Care, Croda North America.

Crodazoquat MCC is designed to be effective across multiple ethnic hair types- a truly multicultural conditioner for a diverse world that is progressively connected,” said Denise Costrini, Marketing Manager – Hair Care, Croda North America.

Tested on various attributes

In order to best assess performance on African hair, a conditioner containing Crodazoquat MCC was salon tested on consumers with natural African hair and relaxed African hair. Attributes that are particularly important to address African hair needs were added to the standard list of attributes used to evaluate other hair types: Breakage, Density, and Ease of Styling.

The conditioner containing Crodazoquat MCC outperformed the commercial African hair conditioner benchmark on dry aesthetics for both the natural and relaxed hair, satisfying the consumer needs for anti-breakage, desired density, and ease of styling.
