Peptides and amino acids. Ingredients such as Pterocarpus marsupium bark help improve hair density, increase the number of follicles, prevent scalp disorders, and stimulate the cells that improve root anchoring and strength.

Antioxidants. Thioctic acid is a powerful dual antioxidant that maintains the protection of extracellular proteins, fights free radicals and limits lipid oxidative degradation.

Vitamin B. Cyclohexane-1,2,3,4,5,6-hexol is part of a complex that stimulates protein biosynthesis and cell vitality, proliferates cell growth and increases energy production.

Enzymes and proteins. The specialized complex of panthenyl ethyl ether, milk protein, lactose, cyclohexane-1,2,3,4,5,6-hexol, acetylcysteine and methionine, which stimulate protein biosynthesis and cell vitality, help increase energy production in scalp tissue, and anchor hair to the root. Hydrolyzed lupine protein also works to slow hair loss and encourage nutrient assimilation to help hair growth.

Organic plant stem cell technology. This extracts the portion of the plant responsible for development and life, and is also extremely effective in human cell regeneration and healthy hair. Apple stem cells are used to deliver concentrated doses of antioxidants and inhibit the process of cellular aging to create an environment for healthy hair growth.
