Company Profile 

Schwarzkopf and Henkel, originally known as Hans Schwarzkopf GmbH, was founded in Germany 1898 by chemist Hans Schwarzkopf, who began selling a water-soluble shampoo from the small drugstore he ran in Berlin. The product provided an easy-to-use and value-for-money alternative to the expensive oils and harsh soaps common at the time and proved an instant hit with customers. Over a century later, Schwarzkoft products are sold in more than 100 countries and the brand has become a market leader in the field of hair colourants, hair care and hair styling products. German chemical manufacturer Henkel acquired the company in 1985.
