The Centro de Tecnología Capilar (CTC) was founded in Barcelona in 1995 in response to the growing interest and need for personal hair and scalp care.


Since then, at CTC we've been constantly expanding our knowledge about the biology of the hair and scalp.


Together, technological advances combined with the knowledge of our team have made it possible for CTC to become a company specialising in the research and development of innovative technologies for assessing the efficacy of active ingredients and finished hair care products.

In 2021 became part of Zurko Research, the largest Spanish and a prominent European CRO.


What do we do?


  • Project definition and consultancy​

  • Product safety testing

  • Efficacy testing, not only for active ingredients, but also for finished products for use on scalp, nails, eyebrows, eyelashes, beard and body hair

  • We work under the concept of tailor-made service. In other words, we work closely with every client to determine the ritual use, claim, etc. for each product, as well as the different options for obtaining optimal results during testing

  • Follow-up with volunteers and preliminary results

  • Full trial report​​
