„The Opilomed is a prize-winning, patented world novelty, with which the harmful side effects of hair dyeing are a thing of the past. With our innovation, we are closing a market gap and opening crowds to a world market. ”
Color is life, color is joy, color is creativity.
About half of all women in industrialized countries regularly dye their hair. At the same time, the awareness of and the desire for health and well-being in our society is growing ever more. Enlightened consumers are looking for ways to sustainably promote and protect their health. They question the potential dangers of the chemical processes of conventional hair dyeing, which were already warned of in 2011 by an EU directive.
These dangers are put to the test when the dye itself reaches the scalp directly. Health-conscious people are looking for alternatives to unpleasant symptoms such as itching, redness or burning on the scalp. All these are common side effects, which half of all coloring users suffer. Simply put – it goes too much under the skin, quite literally.
World news with yield potential for crowd investors This is where the patented world novelty Opilomed comes into play. The well-known Upper Austrian hairdresser, Ronald Gruber, has more than 30 years of experience in his profession and, together with his competent and passionate team, developed a healthy alternative, which in 2014 was already recognized as the best business idea in his homeland.
Opilomed is the first patented protective comb with an integrated lifting and lowering mechanism. It is inserted openly into the hair and seals the scalp in the closed condition reliably. This ensures that no harmful substances get on the scalp while the hair is being dyed. Different protection comb shapes and their easy bendability allow the complete covering of each head shape.
Guaranteed healthy and without loss of quality Opilomed is an innovative, healthy alternative, which does not loose quality over time. Special teeth of the opilizing combs ensure a funnel effect that reaches up to 0.5 mm to the scalp. Due to the cross-hair action of the hair of a further 0.2 mm, the result is a near-zero coloring of the skin. At the same time, the harmful substances contained in the paint do not come into contact with the scalp.
“When you are fortunate enough to create a new product category, you also have to make sure to occupy the category name.”
Opilation is the term for the hairdressing industry, comes from the Latin and stands for “block/protect”. In 2011, an EU directive drew attention to the dangers of hair dyeing and established a labeling requirement for all dye products that they were not suitable for young people under 16 years of age. This was the inspiration for the experienced hairdresser, Ronald Gruber, to develop a healthy, head-protecting method that provides the same coloring results but prevents the penetration of foreign substances, allergens, and chemical additives into the lymphatic and blood channels.
From then on Gruber and his team worked on the product. This was followed by numerous tests, expert opinions and a JKU Linz expertise, which confirmed the suitability of the protective combs for skin compatibility and resistance to chemicals. Even during the test phase, numerous customers were very enthusiastic about Opilomed.
“The company was very well positioned right from the start. Costs of more than EUR 300,000, – were financed entirely from equity.”
At the same time as the Crowdinvesting campaign, the market launch starts. The patented world novelty Opilomed closes a market gap. The great chances for the company and the CONDA Crowd investors are facing increased capital requirements. The investments are to be used for a well-founded brand structure and a rapid market penetration. An international target market of around two million customers in the B2B area, as well as a market potential of up to 350 million euros annually speak for themselves.
