Natural molecules to fight Asian hair exposome

Various hair treatments and environmental factors such as ultraviolet and pollution induce hair shaft damage. All these parameters refer to exposome.

In this study, we evaluated the effect of a natural complex extract, AC, which associates the antioxidant activity and photo-protective power of Zingiber officinale roots and Magnolia officinalis bark with the Pracaxi oil (Pentaclethra macroloba), an original oil rich in long chain fatty acid to reinforce lipid layer and to refill cuticle gap. Permeation, protein carbonylation, mechanical resistance and hair strengthening and gloss were evaluated in Asian hair. The active ingredient named AC (trade name Zoryalys®) penetrates to the heart of the hair. Thanks to this, it prevents protein oxidation induced by pollution and UV exposure. As a result, the hair structure integrity is protected, inducing strength and resistance of the hair, and finally gloss.
