Hairgum, Laboratoire Ariland

The Laboratoire Ariland is a French manufacturer mainly renowned for its hair styling and barber products. The products are dedicated to be used by hair professionals but also by end consumers. The laboratory is located in the Rhône-Alpes region since its creation in 1989. Today it’s a team of 18 coworkers who leads the 2 owned brands – Hairgum and K pour Karité – with a same motto: innovation and distribution of qualitative products, with original textures and fragrances. The Laboratoire Ariland gathers all the requested skills and departments to be in total control of the products’ quality, from the R&D to the Quality Control, through Production, Marketing and Design. The Laboratoire Ariland was the first to relaunch the styling wax on the French market, which led then to develop diverse ranges of highly concentrated styling formulas.
