natural phyto-compounds for hair & scalp care

REQUEST THE RESEARCH | Hair + Scalp Care

Haircare is About More than hair

The condition, nourishment, health of the scalp and environment where the hair follicle exists is vital to the optimum development of strong, healthy hair. Global consumer demand for provenance back to natural source, and accessing naturally derived molecules is driving New Product Development (NPD) in the haircare sector to perform naturally. Based on extensive peer-reviewed research we have found four phyto-compounds to have positive effects on hair and scalp applications, exhibiting significance for hair growth and conditioning. The references are related to individual phyto-compounds that are identified in a range of our Australian Native and Traditional Botanical Cellular Extracts.

DELIVERING THE ENTOURAGE

BOOSTING PHYTO-ACTIVITY THROUGH COMPOUND COMBINATIONS

PHYTO-COMPOUNDS TO CONSIDER FOR HAIR + SCALP

Based on plant profiles achieved by Cellular Extraction, verified by 3rd party analytical laboratories, the table below summarises phyto-compounds that have supporting research in peer reviewed scientific journals of the core treatment considerations mentioned. References are not based on clinical trials of the Cellular Extracts. Cellular Extraction delivers the natural molecules in their entourage, maintaining their integrity as they exist in the cell. Analytical testing is done on the Glycerine/water Cellular Extract concentrate format.

PROCYANIDINS

  • Improve hair density and diameter
  • Interferes with the signaling pathways e.g. TG-F-β andPKC (2 proteins) that pushes hair growth cycle forward
  • Holds growth stage in place for longer period before eventually shedding

QUERCETIN

  • Activates hair cells· Anti-inflammatory, interfers with UVA/B damage
  • A zinc ionophore: improves the cellular uptake of zinc
  • Inhibits CD38 (NADase): thus increasing cellular NAD

KAEMPFEROL

  • Supports development and maintenance of hair cells
  • Counteracts thinning, weakening, aka miniaturization

EGCG [Epigallocatechin3-gallate]

  • Protects hair cells against environmental toxins for improved cell viability and performance
  • Improves length (when combined with Quercetin)

Research shows synergy between compounds

multi-functional extracts

Consider Cellular Extracts with Quercetin + Kaempferol in their entourage for hair growth:
Emu Apple
Native Snowflower
Blue Butterfly Pea
Gotu Kola

Or, species with both EGCG + Quercetin:
Black Tea
Green Tea
White Tea
Aniseed Myrtle

Healthy hair and scalp also requires keratin, and to a lesser extent collagen. Consider these Cellular Extracts to boost the availability of key AAs involved in the production of keratin and collagen to stimulate new hair growth:
Kakadu Plum
Beetroot
Broccoli
