PlexCys: A Natural, Effective Alternative to Synthetic Hair Bond Multipliers

The human hair is daily exposed to stressors, such as pollution, UV rays, as well as physical forces, such as hair-combing (friction) and/or drying/strengthening (heating), which may lead to hair damages. Furthermore, the most common chemical hair treatments, bleaching and hair-dyeing, are also very harsh to the hair and cause extreme hair damage. Reestablishing healthy S-S bonds is a good strategy to repair damaged hair and prevent further damage. Most solutions available rely on synthetic molecules despite consumer interest in natural.


In this short presentation, Dr. Eric Ginsburg will give an overview of how Evonik has successfully addressed these naturality goals by developing a novel and natural hair-bond multiplier, Si-Cys-complex, which shows excellence performances on the hair.

Eric Ginsburg, PhD

Applied Technology Manager – Active Ingredients

Upon graduation he started with Evonik as a process chemistry working in their Hopewell Virginia plant. During his time at the plant, Eric supported production by developing methods to help increase robustness of products, while minimizing reactor downtime. In December of 2021, Eric joined the Applied Innovation team, where his role is centered around the research and development of Active Ingredients.

PlexCys by Dr. Natascia Grimaldi and Juan Gonzalez

Traditionally, hair color, bleaching and other chemical, thermal and mechanical services have been limited due to hair damage and sensitization. At present , the cosmetic industry offers powerful repair and protection (pre and post) treatments which allow hair stylists to increase their creativity by pushing the boundaries of hair color and bleaching without damaging the hair.

Cationic Microemulsion by Brian Yang, Dr. Peter Schwab, and Uta Kortemeier

Today’s consumer awareness of maintaining skin and hair in a healthy condition is greater than ever before. Therefore, consumers are constantly searching for efficient, but convenient, hair care products. Consequently, the clear and stable incorporation of relatively high and effective levels of oils into water-based hair care systems with offering decent viscosities often represent a major challenge for formulators.

Looking for market gaps, there is an opportunity to reposition fermentation from a fully natural space towards a more scientific, cutting-edge tech space, proving efficacy and providing safer, more sustainable alternative ingredients.
