From A to Zotos: Inside the Perm Brand Refreshfeaturing Zotos Professional
Quantum. Design Freedom. Acclaim. Apple Pectin. Texture EFX. Zotos Professional perms have been your industry go-to for years to create everything from body waves to firm curls. Now, they're leveling up with some exciting changes! Zotos has streamlined their perm offerings, reformulated perms with fewer chemicals and a fresher scent and improved their packaging with a modernized look. But don’t worry - behind this new look is the same great performance you rely on. Want to know more? Read on for all the big moves Zotos has made!
The most noticeable update to all the Zotos perm offerings is brand-new packaging. From Acclaim to Quantum and everything in between, all Zotos perms now use a coherent, sleek design. Perm names, instructions and ingredients are clearly displayed on a white background for better readability. But - even though the box designs are new, the colors remain the same! So if you’re used to identifying these perms by their colors, it’s still as easy as ever.
While these are the same perms you know and love, Zotos has made some minor tweaks to their formulas, leading to some serious benefits that you should know about:
Scent: The Quantum line now includes a patented odor eliminator, meaning a fresher scent in the salon and a more pleasant experience for the client in your chair. And the beloved Apple Pectin perm now contains MORE apple pectin!
Conditioning Power: Several perms have been reformulated with new ingredients to keep your clients’ hair moisturized and healthy. The Design Freedom perms benefit from the addition of crosilk, a substance made up of naturally-derived silk proteins that nourish and protect the hair. The Acclaim Plus Extra Body has been fully reformulated with next-level conditioning in mind.
Fewer Chemicals: Many Zotos perm products have removed certain ingredients in an effort to reduce overall chemical impact on the hair. These include DMDM, sodium borate, pent pentetate, diazolidinyl urea, D4/D5 and imidazolidinyl.
Streamlined Perm Options
Zotos reviewed their entire line of 22 perms and reduced that number to 12, providing new focus for stylists by ending the duplication of some perms that served the same purpose as others. Marlo Beauty knows that you and your customers might be loyal to specific perms. If your go-to perm is no longer available, we are committed to helping you find your new favorite!
