Pollution protection through film forming anti-oxidant
Mechanism of action
Promotes Health Scalp Skin Cells
FK Scalp™’s protein and peptide combination stimulates skin cells to proliferate by up to 160% faster than a placebo while simultaneously stimulating human keratinocyte migration, and the expression of collagens IV and VII, thus improving the anchoring of follicles. This promotes scalp health through the shedding of cells and the avoidance of follicle clogging by bringing healthy cells to the surface more quickly.
Protect From Scalp Inflammation
FK Scalp™’s anti-inflammatory agent reduces the PGE2 response in cells undergoing inflammatory stress by up to 70%. Reducing scalp inflammation, itching and pre-mature hair follicle death. This reduction in PGE2 response enables maintenance of root nourishment and hair density.
Pollution and UV Protection
FK Scalp™ protects the scalp from exposure to oxidative stress from pollution such as particulate matter, gases like sulfur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide, as well as heavy metals and volatile organic compounds. FK Scalp™ contains higher levels of cystine than any other protein material, scavenging free radicals before they cause scalp damage.
