Our story

An all-Italian brand since 1972

The brand name “Solfine” derives from a sulphur-based shampoo specifically formulated for oily scalp and hair, and bound to become one of the line’s best-sellers.

This historic brand in the Italian hair care industry was created in the early 1970s with the first line of professional shampoos and hair care products developed, manufactured and distributed by a cosmetics laboratory located in the province of Arezzo and named Cosmo Lab.

1972

 

Despite its traditional origins and the manufacturing connotation naturally associated with Italian companies in those days, Cosmo Lab was already well established on overseas markets thanks to the production and distribution of professional hair colours that offered an excellent value for price and a purely Italian colour style, more covering and resistant than the French one; more natural, multifaceted and shinier than the German one.

In the two decades that followed, Solfine imposed itself as a leading made in Italy brand on the Canadian and Australian markets, completing its offering with new professional hair colour lines distributed through networks of specialised pharmacies and cosmetics stores, widely spread both in Canada and Australia.

In January 1998, the Cosmo Lab laboratory was renamed Cosmolab SRL. Ever since, the company has increasingly specialised in private label manufacturing and extended its R&D activities by cooperating with knowledgeable technicians and consultants for new product formulation and development.

Directions for use:

for greater efficacy and cosmetic effect, we recommend applying the lotion on a clean scalp. Distribute the entire contents of the vial throughout the scalp, section by section; use the applicator tip to create the sections. Distribute drop by drop along the section, blotting with a fingertip. After completing the application, finish off with an energising massage by moving the fingertips in a circular motion until the product is completely absorbed. Style the hair as usual.

Frequency of use: we recommend application daily or every other day throughout the period of increased hair loss. Repeat the treatment as needed.
