Azelis, an innovation service provider in the specialty chemicals and food ingredients industry, is proud to announce it has won the Gold award in the hair care category at in-cosmetics Asia 2023 in Thailand.

The winning formulation is part of Azelis’ Zestful Beauty campaign, a set of 31 formulations designed to be memorable through outstanding performance, delightful sensory profiles, and a responsible ingredient selection.

· Balances the scalp pH to 5.5.

· Protects the scalp barrier against environmental stressors.

· Offers anti-inflammatory properties (soothes the scalp and reduces itchiness/flaking).

· Reduces excess sebum by 78%.

· Restores hair vitality.

· Repels odor from hair so it smells better for longer.
