Active cosmetic ingredient to counter hair ageing
Our skin experts have designed Darkenyl™, a product which counteracts the biological process of greying hair.
Darkenyl™ integrates two synergistic molecules, a plant polyphenol and a soluble precursor of melanin synthesis, a combination which boosts hair stem cell proliferation by 30% and migration, helping develop new melanocytes – specialised pigment cells – in the hair matrix.
A clinical study demonstrated significant consumer benefits of Darkenyl™: in four months, volunteers had more than three times less white hair per cm², with up to -56% reduction of white hair.
While genes can play a large role in hair ageing, free radicals directly induce the premature greying of hair for both men and women.
Darkenyl’s antioxidant properties enable the reduction of free radical damage in hair follicles and help to protect existing melanocytes (+189%).
Once the hair matrix has been repopulated with new pigment cells and both new and existing ones are protected, Darkenyl™ delivers its melanin synthesis precursor to reactivate the production of the melanin that gives hair its colour.
The unique action of Darkenyl™ is patent-pending, gender independent and can be used on any hair type or colour – it also shows progressive and long-lasting results.
