Boosting hair renewal and maintaining natural hair growth cycles is the focus of Follisync biofunctional. The new offering is based on research that shows the hair growth cycle may be linked to CLOCK genes. Follisync biofunctional, made with vicia faba seed extract, may enhance the expression of CLOCK proteins in vitro to help regulate hair in the anagen phase. Specifically, the technology targets CLOCK protein expression in the dermal papilla area of hair follicles. Research shows that the dermal papillae – cells that send out signals to nearby keratinocytes to multiply and form the hair shaft during the growth phase (anagen) – plays a vital role in hair formation, growth and cycling.Procataline biofunctional, a patent-pending formula based on pea extract, is specifically formulated to focus on oxidative stress at the follicle. Demonstrated by in vitro studies, the formulation helps maintain high levels of select protein such as p63, a protein associated with epidermal tissue renewal. The same formula is shown in vitro to decrease caspase 3 expression, a direct cause of hair-cell death. Procataline biofunctional is also shown in vitro to boost catalase expression, an antioxidant enzyme that may help preserve the structure of hair following UV and environmental exposure. All of these benefits favor a positive environment required for healthier, younger-looking hair.The graying of human hair may have been the subject of research throughout the ages, but until now, few have targeted the protein markers key to the control of melanin synthesis. Chromafend biofunctional is a unique, patent-pending technology based on flax that may help conserve melanin in the hair follicle. Research shows that Chromafend biofunctional helps to boost essential protein expressions for protecting natural hair color, as demonstrated by in vitro and ex vivo studies. The principle proteins targeted are tyrosinase and TRP1 expressions to assist in the production of melanin. A total of six protein expressions studied in vitro were boosted to help favor melanin production, synthesis, processes and transfer mechanisms.
