Philips brings the goodness of Keratin to hair Appliances with its new KeraShine range

Keratin infused range of hairstyling gadgets that style, care and protect the hair

October 10, 2013

Mumbai, India: Philips India, a leading Health and Well-being company, today launched the first Keratin infused hair appliances range in India. Marketed under the brand name KeraShine, the new range of Keratin infused appliances will include a multi-styling brush -GlamStyler, a Hair Straightener and a Hair Dryer.

Keratin, a fibrous protein, forms the main structural component of human hair. Infusion of Keratin rejuvenates and revitalizes hair, giving it a softer, silkier feel. The new KeraShine range offers a portfolio of quick styling appliances to create glamorous hairstyles at home, giving women the freedom to sport a new look every day. While the Keratin infused in the ceramic plates of the appliances smoothens hair by closing cuticles, ions reduce frizz and make hair dust repellent.

Highlighting the innovation in this product range, Mr. ADA Ratnam, President, Consumer Lifestyle, Philips India said “In India, healthy, shiny and soft hair is considered the epitome of a woman’s beauty. In today’s fast paced lifestyle, while women want to experiment with their hair styles, they have little time to care for their hair. Philips’ new KeraShine range not only gives women the freedom to style their hair fearlessly every day, it also protects their hair against pollution, keeping them soft and safe.”

Consumer research conducted by Philips reveals that dryness, pollution and hair fall are cited as the leading hair problems by 31, 41 and 40 percent women respectively. On the other hand, with constant exposure to international markets and changing dressing trends, women in India are also adopting versatile hairstyles and are experimenting with their looks. The Haircare appliances market has thus seen tremendous growth over the past few years, with an exceptionally high growth in multi-stylers. With a product range like KeraShine, Philips intends to empower women to style every day, while also caring for their hair.

Following the launch of the KeraShine range, Philips will also release 10 Do-It-Yourself hairstyling videos to help women create new hairstyles using the GlamStyler. This is a special marketing initiative keeping in mind the upcoming festive season. These videos will present a step-by-step hair-styling tutorial and will be hosted on Philips’ YouTube Channel.
