Xenon management estimates that it has reduced its consumption of hair color by approximately 30%, and it anticipates producing annual savings well in excess of the cost of installing the system. We are confident that similar savings can be achieved in salons throughout the country, and that our approach has the potential of increasing the profitability of the whole industry.”
