What consumers want and why

Consumers want to use natural ingredients for healthy hair. They also show concern about the environmental impacts of chemical-based haircare products, leading them to look for alternative, natural, clean ingredients.

The patent landscape

Patents for haircare products focus on 'new' functional features of algae-based ingredients, including anti-dandruff, moisturising, hair nourishment and prevention of hair greying. An exciting new application has also emerged: algae as a hair colourant pigment.

Algae-based bioactive ingredients improve scalp health, repair damage and fight hairloss and greying. Patent trends feature algal pigments as safe hair colourants.
