According to Ashland, the need for formulating expertise is booming in India where expenditures in personal care products grow at a rate of approximately 15-percent year-over-year.

Looking at the number of requests for assistance from companies in India over the past several years, it is obvious there are a number of advantages, for both Ashland and our customers, with a local technical team in Mumbai,” said John E. Panichella, group operating officer and president, Ashland Specialty Ingredients, who presided over the opening ceremony.

Ashland’s Mumbai facility has dedicated formulation laboratories to hair, skin, oral and home care; controlled environment laboratories for measurement science to support claims substantiation; a microbiology laboratory for preservative optimization and micro challenge test; consumer science laboratories including a hair salon; a laboratory designed for customer collaborations; and a fully equipped training room.
