The company’s newly launched mass-market hair care brand qilib is meant to address the needs of both women and men with thinning hair as well as hair loss and to appeal to consumers that are passionate about wellness.

Pronounced key-lib, the collection comprises three stand-alone products: Revitalizing Hair Solution, Hair Regrowth Treatment, and the Hair and Health Reinforcement supplement.

Additionally, Galderma has bundled both topical hair care products into a prepackaged system.

Spray on hair care

The Revitalizing Hair Solution spray for women is formulated with Water, Allium Cepa Bulb Extract, Alcohol, Citrus Limon Fruit Extract, Betaine, Glycedrin, Sodium Chloride, Theobroma Cacao Seed Extract, Paullinia Cupana Seed Extract, Silica, Maltodextrin, and Fragrance, according to the company site. The ingredients vary slightly in the men’s formulation. These sprays are being marketed as products made with “natural botanical ingredients.”

The Hair Regrowth Treatment spray is made with minoxidil (2% in the women’s product and 5% in the men’s),Alcohol, Propylene Glycol, and Purified Water.

Adapting to change

With this launch, Galderma is leveraging the company reputation and pivoting to meet the needs and expectations of today’s consumers.

“Delivering innovative solutions to improve people’s health and self-confidence is a core value at Galderma,” ​says Miles Harrison, president and general manager of Galderma Laboratories, in a press release about the new collection.

“qilib’s launch embodies our pioneering approach to address skin care issues, including those associated with the hair and scalp, with solutions backed by science,” ​Harrison adds. “The millions of sufferers of thinning hair and hair loss have had limited options that work, but now, qilib Hair Regrowth + Revitalization System is available to provide fast, visible results in as little as 4 weeks.”

 Documenting results

The company’s press release doesn’t refer to any particular study on qilib. But, it does note that 75% of women and 70% of men who used the products as directed for 12 weeks were “satisfied with overall improvement.”

And the company statement quotes Amy McMichael, M.D., board-certified dermatologist and professor and chair of Dermatology at Wake Forest University School of Medicine, as saying, “The qilib Hair Regrowth + Revitalization System is a game changer because it showed clinical results in both men and women in as early as 4 weeks.”
