Follicusan™ DP stimulates the functionality of the dermal papilla cells at the base of the hair follicles, thus counteracting premature hair loss. It increases the number of anagen hair follicles (growth stage) and decreases that of telogen hair follicles (resting stage). Hair density as well as cumulative hair thickness is increased.
Stimulation of proliferation
Dermal papilla cells are the most important cell type found in the hair root. A strong stimulatory influence of Follicusan™ DP on dermal papilla cslls was observed. This feature is essential for the development of new hair in order to increase the number of anagen hair and effectively fight hair loss.
Impact on hair density
Density is the number of hairs per cm2 on the scalp. The 24 volunteers, suffering from alopecia androgenetica, showed a reduced hair density of only ~180 /cm2. With daily use of Follicusan™ DP a positive trend could be noticed after only 3 months, indicating that Follicusan™ DP was able to re-activate the hair cycle.
Pronalen Fibro-Actif is a standardized hydrosoluble extract of Germs of Soy and Wheat. It is made up of bioactive molecules which provide sufficient energy to increase the protein synthesis of the collagen, elastin and the glycosaminoglycans. Pronalen Fibro-Actif is incorporated into hair products as it revitalises the hair. It is a vegetable alternative to placenta extract, mimicking its function as a protein reconstructor that returns protein to the hair and repairs follicles. PRONALEN FIBRO-ACTIF is obtained from seeds with only water used in their germination and no pesticides and other chemical additives. The process is stopped after 7 days as the active biomolecules (peptides, amino acids, oligosaccharides, glucose) have reached their maximum levels.
The first graph shows how mitochondrial activity increases with greater concentrations of Pronalen Fibro-actif (µg). In this case the concentration of the mitochondrial protein was 7.43 µg and the process was carried out without incubation.
Figure 2 shows us the increase in the mitochondrial activity with greater concentration of Pronalen Fibro-actif (µg), as the oxygen levels detected in the cell fall progressively. In this case, the mitochondrial protein concentration was in the order of 12.23 µg and the process was carried out after 15-18 hours of incubation.

Traditional Ayurvedic oil which cleanses the scalp, heals inflammation and improves hair texture. Contains extraordinarily high levels of antioxidants and protects the scalp skin from ongoing damage that is caused by free radicals. Neem also has regenerative properties that support healthy cell division and stimulate hair follicle growth and function.
Adenosine is an important bio-organic compound fulfilling various functions in the human body. Recent research has proven that the application of an adenosine solution on the scalp can lead to improved hair growth for both men and women. Mitigates hair loss by stimulating hair growth and thickening of the hair shafts.
An organic compound produced in a variety of plants, it has anti-inflammatory properties which can help alleviate a number of skin conditions. Azelaic acid also has mild antibacterial properties, meaning it can help keep the skin clean. As well as possessing these anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, Azelaic acid may also act as a 5α-reductase inhibitor.
Researchers have reported that diets lacking inositol produce baldness in laboratory animals, but when the vitamin is restored, the hair grows back. Males seem to be affected most. Physicians have reported similar findings with human patients. Inositol is known to strengthen hair by helping it to retain moisture.
Helps reduce inflammation and can soothe the irritation that other hair products might be causing. Contains an abundance of essential fatty acids (EFAs), including oleic acid. Emu oil helps transport ingredients through the skin, so it can help active ingredients to work more effectively.
Amino acid groups known as copper peptides have two major properties: 1) as potently protective anti-inflammatory agents that limit oxidative damage after tissue injury and 2) as tissue remodeling agents that remove damaged protein and scar tissue and activate their replacement with normal tissue. Copper peptides are applied primarily to enhance wound healing. They also stimulate production of collagen and may enhance the action of antioxidants. Studies conducted at universities and other research institutes found that copper peptides improved hair transplant success, increased hair follicle size, stimulated hair growth, and reduced hair loss.
A constituent of vitamin B3, niacinamide occurs naturally in yeasts and various other foods. In bio-technical formulations, niacinamide, also called nicotinamide, is a heterocyclic aromatic compound that functions as a conditioning agent. Benefits of niacinamide for the treatment of skin conditions have received greater study over the last few years, and the crystalline basic amide is now formulated into advanced products for moisturizing, anti-aging, and rosacea. The compound is used in premium hair conditioners, hand creams, paste masks, lotions, powders, and sprays.
A crystalline amino acid formed in the conversion of ornithine to arginine and found in the inner root sheath and medulla of hair follicles. Citrullinemia, a disorder of amino-acid metabolism accompanied by excess citrulline in the blood and urine, is often associated with skin changes like atrophy of the epidermis, thin and short collagen bundles, and dystrophic elastic fibers. Hair relaxers are associated with reduced citrulline and have been associated with inflammation.
Essential oil which provides antiseptic and circulatory benefits as well as a soothing sensory experience.
An essential water-soluble B-complex vitamin, biotin is one of the building blocks of healthy hair growth, needed to metabolize fatty acids and amino acids. The rich levels of biotin in Veta help strengthen hair, as well as combating dryness, breakage and loss.
Arginine helps to form nitric oxide to feed and regulate hair follicle activity. The amino acid is a metabolic precursor of nitric oxide, an important signaling molecule, vasodilator, and mediator of cutaneous cell function. Improved blood flow and nutrition to follicles, as well as better overall regulation of follicle activity, allows for hair fibers of greater diameter.

Amino acids that possess the same chemical structure as proteins, but are shorter in length. Peptides, or mini proteins, are active molecules that send signals to your cells. When collagen breaks down, it forms specific peptides that signal to skin to generate new collagen. By applying peptides topically, our skin can be ‘tricked’ into thinking that it has lost collagen recently and to generate more.
Modern scientific evidence indicates that roots of the genus Panax, commonly called ginseng, prolong hair follicle life, exert antioxidant effects, boost the immune system, and provide many other benefits. Several plant extracts have been investigated for their ability to influence apoptosis, the genetically determined process of cellular self destruction. In multiple published studies of murine hair follicles, ginseng prevented apoptosis. It also aided formation of medullary cells in hair follicles.
