a guide to choosing the best shampoo for the hotel courtesy set


Shampoo is an essential product when talking about hotel amenities. Along with shower gel, soap and body lotion, it forms the basic hotel cosmetic proposal, which can be expanded with other cosmetics to meet guest expectations.

Let's find out which are the most suitable shampoos for the different types of accommodation facilities and the factors to consider when making your choice.

Shampoo, Shower Shampoo or Shampoo & Hair Conditioner?

The first thing to consider is the type of cosmetic product. Regular shampoo is a cleansing product for the scalp and hair, while shower shampoo is suitable for both hair and body. Shampoo conditioner, on the other hand, not only cleans the hair but also detangles and leaves it softer and shinier.

How do you choose among these three options? It can be said that shower shampoo is an extremely  convenient product that serves two purposes in one package, but is less likely to have the same cosmetic effect as a shampoo with a specific formulation. The same goes for shampoo with added conditioner, which is not recommended for oily hair.

Guests prefer courtesy sets that are generous and rich in products. If your accommodation facility allows for it, it's better to choose cosmetics with specific formulations for various uses. Nonetheless,  shower shampoo and shampoo conditioner are perfect as cosmetic gift boxes.

How to Choose the Right Size

In other words, how much shampoo should you provide in each room? It depends on the number of guests and the length of their stay, but the answer is always the same: enough without wastage. Guests should never run out of shampoo, but it's also important to protect your investment and avoid wasting partially used cosmetics.

How many times do we throw away half-used products? How much could we save with a refillable solution that doesn't require constantly buying new bottles?

As we've seen in our previous article, dispensers are the most environmentally friendly solution for hotel courtesy sets. They reduce product waste and the consumption of plastic packaging, and this is a significant advantage for both the environment and the accommodation facility, which can offer to their guests impeccable service with maximum convenience.

The Right Formulation for Your Clientele

Each active substance - natural extract, essential oil, etc. - corresponds to a specific cosmetic action. How do you choose the most suitable formulation for the shampoo? Much depends on the type of clientele.

We should also keep in mind that each shampoo has a distinct fragrance. Obviously, sweet and floral scents are not the best choice for accommodation facilities primarily frequented by business travelers.

In essence, there are no better formulations, only those that are most suitable for the specific needs of the guests. Thoroughly understanding these needs is essential for defining a valuable offering.

The Importance of Location

Location is also crucial. Some hotel amenities seem tailor-made to enhance the features of the surrounding environments.

For example, the shampoo of the MareVita set, with sea salt, is perfect for venues near the sea, just as the Laverde kit with medicinal herbs is ideal for farm houses in green settings.

Courtesy Sets for All Types of Accommodation

Since 1969, we have been designing and producing a broad range of hotel amenities and have developed some high-quality cosmetic lines with unique features. These are just a few of the most requested:

Italian Quality, OroVerde

Among all our courtesy sets, OroVerde is the one that embodies "Italianity" the most. It is exclusively made with Italian organic olive oil and deeply nourishes the skin, regulating hydration and counteracting irritation and cracking.

OroVerde shampoo – available in 32 ml or 60 ml bottles and 300 ml or 500 ml dispensers – is free from parabens and allergens, vegan, and not tested on animals. It's the perfect choice for accommodations of all classes, but is particularly recommended for those that welcome international tourists, less accustomed to the benefits of our oil.

Shampoo for Accommodation Facilities that Offer Well Being and Relaxation

Accommodations with a wellness center or spa should maintain the same level of care and attention in their guest rooms. Guests expect high-quality products with strong cosmetic properties.

The shampoo in the Marble courtesy set, enriched with black clay and essential almond oil, and the shampoo in the Reyah set with argan oil deeply nourish the hair, leaving it soft and silky without weighing it down. These are true beauty elixirs for guests who prioritize well-being and aesthetics!

Anti-Aging Cosmetics from Head to Toe

Hotel shampoo is part of a complete set, attentively selected by the accommodation for its cosmetic action. Anti-aging sets, such as Mela with apple stem cells and Divinum enriched with grape extracts, are increasingly in demand across all categories and locations.

Shampoo too is a genuine beauty treatment, leaving the hair soft and radiant. All the guests who want to take care of their beauty will surely appreciate such a product .

Shampoo is one of the most important elements of a hotel courtesy set. When making your choice, you should carefully consider the typical clientele and anticipate their expectations, desires, and needs. Just so you will truly offer an experience worth remembering.
