Nutricosmetic active ingredient with proven efficacy on hair growth

Clinical study reveals that the natural nutraceutical ingredient CERAMOSIDES™ not only works efficiently on skin, but also on hair health reducing hair loss and stimulating hair growth in healthy women

Hair loss poses a significant psychological distress on those affected. With an estimated one in two women expected to undergo noticeable hair loss in their lifetime [1], the hair care sector is gaining substantial attention within the global nutricosmetic market.

Drawing on more than a decade of expertise in skin care, Seppic is now extending its know-how to hair with promising clinical results. A recent clinical study of their natural nutraceutical ingredient CERAMOSIDES™ – obtained from wheat lipids and rich in phytoceramides – shows an impressive effect on hair loss and hair growth. Oral intake of phytoceramides from wheat are already known to have beneficial effects on skin-hydration and anti-ageing as well as acting as a skin shield for perfect skin.

Oral intake of CERAMOSIDES™ has significant effects on hair loss and hair growth

Ceramides are involved in the formation of intracellular lipids and acts as a barrier protecting the hair cuticle. Based on this knowledge, the clinical study was carried out on a panel of women of all ages suffering from non-pathological hair loss. Their intake was 30 mg CERAMOSIDES™ per day. The novel research revealed that oral intake of the nutraceutical ingredient efficiently reduces hair loss in women [2]. After just three months of supplementation, the results showed significant effects on key hair parameters:

  • Growth of hair length (12.5% vs placebo)
  • Increased number of hairs in the growth phase (2-fold vs placebo)
  • Reduction of hair loss (27% vs placebo)
  • Enhanced hair elasticity
  • Reduction of scalp sebum

CERAMOSIDES™ is vegan, non-GMO and contains no additives and no preservatives. It is gluten-free, certified kosher and available in organic grade. Formulation ideas include capsules, tablets, sticks, drinks, soft gels, gummies and bars.

How are ceramides normally synthesised and how do they function?

In the epidermis, the ceramides are synthesized by the keratinocytes, and they play an essential role in the function of the skin barrier. Ceramides, categorised as sphingolipids, actively participate in constructing the lipid bilayer within the stratum corneum. This construction provides the skin with the impermeability necessary for optimal barrier function, ensuring the retention of hydration and protecting the skin. However, ceramides are subject to hydrolysis and oxidative processes due to environmental exposure, which can lead to a reduction in quantity and/or quality. This alternation of the ceramides results in: An impaired skin barrier, water loss, a skin more fragile and sensitive to external aggression, and over time, premature aging. This alternation also affects hair health due to the crucial role that ceramides play for maintaining and renewing of hair.
