Goldwell manufactures many different products that contain specific ingredients to maximise the product's effectiveness. In 2006, Goldwell introduced a product called Oxycur Platin Ultra, which is the first blonding powder to lighten hair without ammonium persulfates. In addition, Goldwell is a leader in hair colour processing and has established a formal five step colour cycle for stylists to utilise to improve customer satisfaction. The process involves a colour consultation, pre-colour preparation, colour service, post-colour service and colour maintenance routine.

Anti-frizz Serum

The anti-frizz serum consists of ethanol, bis(2-ethylhexyl) carbonate phenylsilsesquioxan and trimethylsilyloxy as the main ingredients. It is sold under the product name Kerasilk and is available for purchase at select beauty stores and Goldwell salons. The anti-frizz serum works to provide a smooth and sleek finish. It also helps protect hair from heated styling appliances, such as hair straighteners and blow dryers. To use, apply the product to towel dried hair; do not rinse out. Style hair as usual.

Ultra Rich Care Treatment

Ultra Rich Care is also part of the Kerasilk line. The product contains cetrimonium chloride as its main ingredient for combating dry and coarse hair. Kerasilk Ultra Rich Care uses Jojoba Oil for extra moisturising and is ideal for extremely dry, chemically relaxed or over-processed hair. The Kerasilk line includes shampoo and conditioner products to provide a complete hair care system. Goldwell produces high quality products and the price reflects this, with most Goldwell products retailing for £9-30 a bottle as of 2011.
