We are seeking for molecules/compounds/materials which are chemically composed of two opposite parts (see Fig.). The first part of such molecules has a hyperbranched/dendrimer-like/fork shape. The second part (which is geometrically opposit to the first) is a moiety which will favour attachement. The attachment on the skin or hair surface could be generated by adhesion, covalent bonding, electrostatic attachment etc. For instance such latter moieity could react with free amines present on the hair fibers (more attachment points on the skin and hair could be considered, e.g. hydroxyl groups). Lactone groups are an example reported in literature of a reactive moiety which upon heat application can bound to the free amine of the hair. Once bounded to the skin/hair such molecules will work as molecular spacers. The molecules need to be neutrally charged, rigid, branched and have a low particle density (number of atoms in a physical volume). They will therefore decrease the interaction (e.g. Van der Walls attactions) between external particles (such as sand or dust) and the functionalized surface. Example: N-Glycans are an example of such molecular spacers and an example of desired geometrical structure. Glycan with 5 Mannose units for instance will occupy a Volume of 2.25 x 1.65 x 1.24nm with 162 atoms, which lead to a particle density of 35 x 10(^27) atoms/m^3. Such lower particle density will lead to a reduction of the Hamaker-interaction coeffiecint between the funcitonalized surface and an approaching particle. Such molecule will therefore lead to a decrease of the friction coefficient and adhesion forces.
Seeking hyperbranched, non charged, short molecules/dendrimers able to be coupled to keratinous surfaces

We are working with a large direct selling company in the USA, with a presence in many overseas markets and a range of established nutrition, personal care, skin care and home-care product brands that positively impact the health and wellness of its end-consumers. These brands are recognized as innovative, backed by science and are successfully marketed and sold by an extensive entrepreneurial network, who are always looking to introduce the next generation of consumer products. The client is actively searching for commercially ready, emerging (and soon to become leading) consumer products for the health and wellness sector, which they can initially introduce into Hong Kong and/or Canada and potentially for further international expansion. They wish to continue their introduction of innovative branded products and partner with smaller companies looking for a foothold in lucrative markets, ensuring their customer base is offered the widest range of effective and truly innovative early-stage products that have yet to become mainstream. Many consumers are influenced to invest in new products by personal and social recommendations, and recognize the need to improve the following elements to ensure a healthy lifestyle and continual well-being: Mental health, Healthy food/diet, Essential nutrients, Hydration, Exercise, Petcare, Beauty/image, Homecare, Fertility, Sleep, Childcare, Mindfulness
