Peptide Hair Serum 2 fl. oz.
Our hair thins as we age because a reduction in the active growing cycle. The subcutaneous fat layer of the scalp also thins and hair becomes more brittle. The ability of the hair cortex to absorb melanin also diminishes and the hair starts to lose its youthful color and shine.
The hair grows from a vital portion of the skin called the follicle. Unlike the visible portion of the hair that is comprised of keratin and is “non-living”, the portion of the hair that resides below the scalp, in the follicle, is full of activity and life. The hair fiber originates at the terminal point called the hair blub, where living dermal papilla cells, grow, divide and absorb melanin. By addressing hair and scalp health at the cellular level, this formula provides healthier, thicker, stronger, and younger hair and scalp!
Sea Buckthorn Seed Oil – contains a balanced combination of linoleic and alpha-linolenic acids backed with plenty of tocopherol. These essential fatty acids smooth hair surface and prevent protein loss and damage of the hair body. They enhance microcirculation of the scalp thus improving epidermal regeneration. Alpha-linolenic acid is an essential nutrient for healthy shiny hair.
Fennel Seed Extract & Visnaga Vera Extract (Superoxide Dismutase & Foeniculum Vulgare) – Hair follicles have very high rates of metabolic activity. However, studies of aged follicles often ﬁnd inadequate capillary circulation directly to the follicle. This suggests that a lack of nutrient ﬂow may be a contributory factor to the thinning of hair with age. These two combined ingredients enhance microcirculation in the scalp, while delivering protective nutrients to the only actively growing living portion of hair, the follicle.
Hexapeptide-11 –A bio-fermented peptide that has been shown to help regulate key genes responsible for collagen production and important extracellular matrix components such as hyaluronic acid. Studies indicate that this peptide is capable of influencing the principal biochemical pathways responsible for converting young velus hair into mature terminal hair.
Swertia Japonica Extract – A traditional Japanese hair care ingredient for hair loss (alopecia areata).
Fruit Extracts – isolated from Sugar Cane, Lemon and Apple offer natural exfoliating action. They help to clear the follicles of excessive build up of dead cells, allowing more room for thicker hair growth.
