    Capixyl

    Anybody heard of this?


    http://www.unipexinnovations.com/en/pro ... &from=name

    The interesting thing is they claim it can can lengthen eye lashes.

    I was reading about it on another forum and red flags were raised about it, but apparently the company is offering free trials to people in France.

    I don't think it's available yet commercially the company is trying to license the formula to one of the big cosmetics players.

    taken from a press release

    CapixylTM, a proven alternative to address hair loss

    CapixylTM is a biomimetic peptide combined with a red clover extract. Based on the combined and synergistic action of its two ingredients, CapixylTM targets directly three contributing factors in hair loss. It prevents hair miniaturization, favors a better hair anchoring, and reduces inflammation, an aggravating factor in hair loss. CapixylTM is a clinically proven alternative to address hair loss and boost hair growth! Clinical tests demonstrate its effectiveness in increasing the hair density by 46% in addition to being more effective on hair growth than the reference product on the market and without causing side effects.
    According to a poster on this Spanish site a trial has been done with 600 users

    and finally a user from *********talk has kindly uploaded this PDF sent to him from Unipex

    I don't have any rapid share credits at the moment so i have no idea what's in it

    < edit this link is no longer valid >

    I'll write an email to unipex myself to see what they have to say.

    If you go here you can download a link to a flyer that shows a result from the trial and gives a little more of a breakdown.

    Re: Capixyl

    Apparently they are going to release it as a shampoo

    Really can't see how that's going to work really... and certainly not as well as they claim.

    However i've e-mailed the UK distributors and asked when it will be released and if they plan on offering a free trial like they are supposed to be doing in France.

    I haven't received a response yet, but will post if I do.

    Well you never know what might happen, could sneak out of left field, if it truely is almost 50% more effectinve then minoxidil and works on say 50 - 70% of people and slows or stops hairloss somehow in 80% like fin does, that would be amazing. I wish but lol.

    They seem like pretty bold claims for something that you basically rub in to your scalp and then wash off straight away.

    Like you say it would be amazing... in fact it would be a miracle I think.

    Still i'll reserve judgement until its been proved one way or the other.

    Good work lads,

    If this was true it would be fantastic, however i've got to admit i'm pretty doubtful as to whether or not it's effective, at best we can hope for another tricomin / folligen.

    We'll just have to see what happens with the french trials, thank goodness for google translate.

    The eyelash thing got me thinking about the parallels with Bimatoprost as well.

    They *claim* it tackles hair loss from three different angles, including DHT inhibition.

    So in theory it's the much touted dream fix, however a lot of things coming from Europe through the back door of being a cosmetic product seem to lack any real results in the field.

    I thought it would be worth keeping an eye on.

    Personally i'm not going for regrowth, i just want to maintain what i had, but if this worked as claimed (which i doubt) i'd use this over Bimatoprost.

    It's quite easy to hide the sides of fin from my mother (in fact it's encouraged) however if i turned up one day with brown eyes she'd probably ask questions.

    T T t tttt too excited to type

    http://www.innovadex.com/PersonalCare/D ... 91081?st=7

    gonna fake my own company now, and get hold of this stuff,

    Actually this might be quite tricky to do, but basically free samples of the stuff are being offered, I'm pretty sure a lot of people on here could now get hold of the stuff.

    There's price sheets and a lot more data on there.

    This might be easier to click on

    boooo! the comparisons with minox are in vito.

    I'd be interested to see what people think of the use of red clover, as this is the likely ingredient for dht inhibition, it may also be involved as an epidermal growth factor inhibitor which can make hair grow like crazy, according to a previous post though this could be a bad thing.

    I wouldn't mind knowing what the big guns think of this
