CLINICALLY PROVEN ACTIVES FOR REGROWTH & REDUCED SHEDDING
Follicin Independent clinical study on 60 female adults affected by telogen effluvium (a form of temporary hair loss that usually happens after stress, a shock, or a traumatic event) received treatment over a period of 24 weeks.* Sandal Pentanol (Follicin) solution improved clinical signs of telogen effluvium, with reduced hair shedding, increased hair volume, and increased percentage of anagen phase hair follicles.
- 79% of users experienced reduced shedding by week 8, and 86% by week 24
- 64% of users experienced increased volume by week 8, and 71% by week 24

Basil Hairy Root Extract / RootBioTec was shown to strongly inhibit the activity of 5α reductase II (the enzyme that promotes the conversion of testosterone to DHT). Meanwhile, another study was conducted with starving dermal papilla cells, the cells that are responsible for hair growth. RootBioTec HO improved their proliferation by 23%, indicating a hair regrowth effect. In a clinical study conducted for two months on volunteers with mild to moderate hair loss, RootBioTec HO showed the capacity to reduce hair loss by 26% after the first month and 31% following the second month. *Source: Mibelle Biochemistry, Buchs Switzerland
