Our hair is composed of almost 90% keratin, which determines the mechanical strength and structure of the hair. The fiber strength of hair treated with keratin is increased by 2.7 cN / Tex compared to "normal" hair. At the same time, a decrease in strength was observed in all hair types when using shampoos and conditioners that do not contain keratin.

Collagen accounts for 30% of the total mass of human protein and is responsible for the elasticity and proper hydration of the skin, nails, and hair, as well as for the continuous renewal of cells. The progressive loss of collagen with age leads to a deterioration in the appearance of skin, hair, and nails. The use of collagen-containing products slows down the aging process of the skin, improves its protective functions, promotes the regeneration of hair and nails, helps with dandruff, psoriasis, dermatitis, slows down the graying of hair, and strengthens the walls of blood vessels. Together with keratin, collagen aids in the healing of micro-tears, increases the brightness of colored hair, gives hair shine, and forms a collagen layer (protective layer) on the hair surface.

Olive leaf extract has strong antioxidant, antibiotic, antifungal, and antiparasitic effects and positively affects the structure and health of the hair.

Phospholipids are essential for our skin cells as they are the main components of the lipid bilayer of the plasma membrane and their main suppliers. Essential polyunsaturated fatty acids like linoleic acid and alpha-linolenic acid ensure the cell membrane activity necessary for normal cell function and the synthesis of lipids in the stratum corneum, which are responsible for the skin's barrier function.
Phospholipids increase the permeability of the epidermal barrier and improve the delivery of biologically active substances. This is due to the fact that phospholipids, along with ceramides and neutral lipids, are part of the lipid matrix of the stratum corneum of the epidermis. Phospholipids moisturize the skin and protect it from dehydration. Phospholipids spontaneously organize into “lamellar” structures, thus forming a kind of moisture reservoir for the skin. The moisturizing effect of phospholipids is not only due to their ability to bind water. Phospholipids form a thin film on the skin surface, protecting it from moisture loss.

Saw palmetto extract is derived from the berries of the tropical dwarf palm. It contains active ingredients such as fatty acids and phytosterols. Native Americans used it among other things as a home remedy to rejuvenate hair follicles and make the scalp more resistant to stress. Science supports the Native Americans' claims.
The fat-soluble extract prevents testosterone from being converted into DHT (Dihydrotestosterone).
When DHT attaches to the hair follicles, their growth phase shortens. They then shrink until they no longer produce new hairs. Additionally, the hair follicles are no longer adequately supplied with nutrients due to the narrowing of the capillaries. Hair formation is blocked, the hair becomes thinner until even the hair root dries out. Saw palmetto extract is capable of reversing this process and stimulating a distribution of DHT, i.e., reducing its concentration. This maintains nutrient supply in the hair roots, extends the hair growth phase, and thus stops hair loss.
