Ahead of in-cosmetics Asia, we shine a spotlight on some of the most innovative ingredients and formulas set to be on display at the show’s Innovation Zone.
From Lucas Meyer, Capixyl is an active ingredient created through the synergistic combination of unique biomimetic peptides and red clover flower extract. Rich in Biochanin A, the resultant ingredient is designed to act immediately on hair metabolism.
Designed for two main purposes, Capixyl leads to the growth of fuller hair through the preservation of hair follicle stem cells. By acting to preserve and regenerate hair follicles, the ingredient stimulates the growth of thicker and healthier-looking hair. Through the same pathway, Capixyl counteracts scalp inflammation, reducing itching and related irritation.
Capixyl’s mode of action modulates DHT via a 5-α reductase activity inhibition, stimulating ECM renewal. It also anchors protein synthesis and decreases pro-inflammatory cytokines. Together these actions combine to improve and regenerate follicles, leading not just to stronger hair but also to luscious looking lashes.
Clinically proven and supported by new data concerning the preservation of hair follicle stem cells, Capixyl successfully underwent in vitro, ex vivo, clinical and consumer tests before its official launch in September 2017.
All this and more will be on show to inspire and educate R&D professionals on the latest ingredients coming to the cosmetic and personal care market. Visit www.in-cosmeticsasia.com for further information and to register online to gain free entry to the event.
