A study recently published in Clinical, Cosmetic, and Investigational Dermatology found that a patented hair serum from Sabinsa Corp. (East Windsor, NJ) significantly improved hair health in healthy male and female subjects. The serum is a multi-patented composition of amla extract (Saberry), freeze-dried coconut water (Cococin), and the micronutrient selenium (PeptiSeLect (γ-L-Glutamyl-L-selenomethionine) along with sandalwood and peanut shell extract. In the open label study, 42 subjects applied the serum each day for 90 days.
Results showed that subjects experienced significant improvements in hair growth rate, hair density, vellus hair density, and terminal hair density, compared to baseline. Subjects also saw significant reductions in hair fall with bulb and without bulb, as well as hair thinning, compared to baseline. “The effects of hair loss can be emotionally consequential,” said Sabinsa founder and chairman Muhammed Majeed, PhD, in a press release. “Though herbs and more recently herbal extracts have been used in hair care, this combination of ingredients offer a synergistic activity, as each of them have a different mechanism for protecting and nourishing hair follicles.”
Currently, the product is licensed to Johara Cosmetics, but Sabinsa plants to open the license to customers worldwide under the trademark Amifera.
