Biotin, also known as vitamin B7, is an essential nutrient that is well known for its ability to support strong, vibrant skin (scalp) and hair [1-4]. Consuming biotin regularly helps prevent the occurrence of scalp irritation and hair loss [4, 5].
D-Panthenol has moisturizing properties that are beneficial for the skin, including the scalp, and it promotes healthy hair follicles [7, 8]. Furthermore, the menthol in peppermint oil stimulates hair follicles . In addition, Ubiquinone (Coenzyme Q10) has antioxidant properties that support the health of skin cells, including those in the scalp [10, 11].

Promotes hair growth [1-5]; Lesses thinning hair [4, 5]; Targets scalp irritation [4, 5]
Biotin boosts metabolism and functions as a co-enzyme that enhances the breakdown of proteins, carbohydrates, fats (fatty acids) and other nutrients that nourish the hair [1-5]. Fatty acids in particular, strengthen the protective outer layer of the body's cells, including those that make up hair follicles . Therefore, biotin promotes healthy hair growth by ensuring that vital nutrients are released from food and properly transported throughout the body (e.g. scalp and hair follicles).
D-Panthenol (vitamin B5) promotes wound healing, targets acne, and helps the body combat acne-related skin issues, including those which affect the scalp . D-Panthenol also helps nourish (mositurize) hair follicles, which supports hair growth and lessens hair loss . In addition, peppermint oil stimulates hair follicles, which encourages hair growth .
Ubiquinone (Coenzyme Q10) helps prevent cell damage and promotes the growth of new cells, with research showing that it reduces the signs of premature skin aging, including the scalp [10, 11].
