Comparison Review: I'm Disappointed with Lador Hydro LPP Treatment Reformulation!


I have been really loving Lador  Hydro LPP Treatment, which you can see in my previous review. It is really lightweight without any greasiness often associated with hair conditioner or treatment. None of the hair treatment I used is as effective and as lightweight as Lador, so I thought I would stick to it forever without trying out other ones. It was not until its recent reformulation that changes how I think about the product!



The packaging looks really similar. Older formulation has a line drawn at the bottom whereas the newer formulation doesn't have such line. Product description at the bottom of the newer packaging is also slightly different than the older packaging.


I think you can't tell the difference between both packaging unless you place them side-by-side.

DIFFERENCE IN THE FORMULATION - TEXTURE



The biggest difference, however, is the texture. The left hand side is the older formulation whereas the right hand side is the reformulation. Apparently, older formulation looks more moisturizing and is lighter in consistency.



The reformulation looks oilier and more emollient-dense.

Let's take a closer look at the new formulation:




INGREDIENTS (OLD VERSION)

Water, Cetearyl Alcohol, Benzyl Alcohol, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Oleyl Alcohol, Daucus Carota Sativa (Carrot) Root Extract, Stearamidopropyl Dimethylamine, Lactic Acid, Benzophenone-9, Collagen, C12-18 Dialkyldimonium Chloride, Panthenol, Yellow 5 (CI 19140), Orange 4 (CI 15510), Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Fragrance

INGREDIENTS (NEW VERSION)

Water, Cetearyl Alcohol, Benzyl Alcohol, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Jojoba Oil, Oleyl Alcohol, Daucus Carota Sativa Root Extract, Stearamidopropyl Dimethylamine, Citric Acid, Lactic Acid, Benzophenone-9, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Di-C12-18 Alkyl Dimonium Chloride, Panthenol, Benzyl Glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Raspberry Ketone, Gardenia Yellow Color, Parfum

DIFFERENCE IN THE FORMULATION - INGREDIENTS


The new formulation includes ingredients such as citric acid, benzyl glycol, ethylhexylglycerin, raspberry ketone and take off harmful ingredients methychloroisothiazolinone. Doesn't seem like a better formulation in my opinion because benefiting extracts stay more or less the same. I can laud the removal of methychloroisothiazolinone but honestly I won't mind having them on my hair, which are mostly dead skin cells as this ingredient is found toxin and allergy-causing when applied onto the skin.

CONCLUSION



I want to talk about performance and conclusion altogether. Basically, the reformulation downgrades the efficacy of the product, making it no difference than many over-the-counter hair treatment or conditioner I can get from Dove, Head & Shoulders and many more local brands. No point spending extra having it shipped to Malaysia because it is not a lot better than the ones the local brands are carrying. The reformulation makes the product so heavy and rich that makes it hard to penetrate deep into the hair follicles to nourish it. My hair doesn't stay moisturized after using this. So this has been officially removed from my holy grail hair treatment list.
