Much of the growth of Hydrokem over the last few years has been due to the development of personal care products and particularly haircare. The photograph shows the newly designed personal care manufacturing facility where concentrates for haircare, deodorants and antiperspirants are blended prior to QC release and filling. The new facility was necessary because of the growth within the sector and allows up to 25000 litres of various formulations to be made at any time supporting continuous production output.

As a result of close co-operation between Hydrokem and some of Britain's most famous hair stylists an increasing range of new aerosol products has been developed and manufactured to meet the needs of today's discerning clients. Many stylists who have previously not ventured into the retail market with their ideas have now established a wide range of merchandising in the high street as a result of working closely with Hydrokem.

The support provided during our "concept to counter" product development process has resulted in some revolutionary products starting out as a "eureka" moment of inspiration to becoming must have essentials.
