The global haircare market is expected to grow to 102 billion US dollars by 2024, a very lucrative market for hair and scalp care innovations. Current and emerging haircare trends are as diverse as the global population.

Trends include customization, individuality, impact of pollution on the scalp, maintaining and restoring hair health, and clean haircare. Cationic encapsulated micro systems (CEM) provide a solution for all these trends. CEMs are lipid micro dispersions composed concentric layers of phospholipids entrapping an aqueous phase. They can be designed to transport a variety of ingredients to address many haircare challenges.
