With a dedicated staff of scientists and chemists, the latest laboratory equipment and a test salon right at our headquarters in Darien, CT, the Zotos R&D team develops revolutionary formulas for new hair care, hair color, texture and other beauty products. Zotos has been granted many patents for haircare innovations ranging from haircolor and stylers to permanent waves and straighteners.


We are passionate about ensuring the safety of our products and ingredients before they go to market. We follow the most stringent rules that regulate raw materials in the world today. We are compliant with the laws of various nations from all continents. Not only do we meet these legal requirements around the globe, but our products often exceed them. Furthermore, we follow all current topics in reviewing the safety of our ingredients and are pro-active in eliminating any ingredient from our product when there is a valid scientific concern about its safety.

Zotos is committed to providing high quality safe products. Zotos does not use animal tests to confirm the safety of Zotos products except when absolutely required by law. Safety of Zotos products is assured by using safe raw materials and where applicable, confirming safety by testing via patch tests with human volunteers under a physician’s supervision and using non-animal alternative tests. As a result, our products have an excellent track record of safety. For additional product safety information, please see the Safety Data Sheets (SDS) on our web site.
