DermaChange believes that no one should have to sacrifice health for beauty. They like to use potent botanicals in their products like raw organic manuka honey, aloe vera, cehami, coconut oil, blue algae, and hemp seed oil to cleanse, hydrate, soothe and nourish. They also use organic ingredients whenever possible. However, there are a few ingredients we see in their products that are of concern.
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]. Rosemary oil and tea tree oil target a substance that is associated with hair loss known as dihydrotestosterone (DHT) [7, 8]. Jojoba oil helps loosen and promote the removal of sebum from the scalp, which is a thick substance that is linked to hair loss in some individuals .
Eucalyptus and peppermint oil stimulate hair follicles , while raw Manuka honey targets sebum and dandruff production . The 5.5pH levels helps sustain a healthy acid mantel .
D-Panthenol (vitamin B5) and Argan oil have moisturizing properties that are beneficial for the skin, including the scalp, and it promotes healthy hair follicles [13-15].
Promotes hair growth [1-5]; Restores hair strength [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).
A hormonal imbalance may cause certain enzymes such as 5-alpha-reductase may begin to convert testosterone in both men and women into a stronger substance called dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Increased DHT levels leads to the accumulation of a thick, dandruff-like substance called sebum. Sebum can clog the roots of the scalp, which can subsequently disrupt nutrient transport to the scalp and hair follicles, hair loss. Rosemary oil and tea tree oil block DHT activity, thereby preventing the buildup of sebum and hair loss [7, 8]. Jojoba oil mimics the texture of sebum and this reduces the production of sebum on the scalp .
In addition, oils such as eucalyptus and peppermint stimulate hair follicles, which encourages hair growth . Furthermore, raw Manuka honey has antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal properties, and it also targets scalp irritation that is caused by sebum and dandruff . The 5.5pH of the shampoo and conditioner set also help maintain the optimal pH of the scalp and hair, thereby supporting the protective layer called the acid mantle .
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 and argan oil also helps nourish (mositurize) hair follicles, which supports hair growth and lessens hair loss .
