Addressing ROS naturally in the scalp

BotanicalsPlus has developed a technology called Sc-Help Defense to addresses three prominent environmental threats of UVB, pollution and blue light

ABSTRACT

Dermal papillae cells are important hair growth cells that reside at the base of every hair follicle. They are responsible for the cyclical growth of scalp hair, managing the transformation of hair from the resting stage (catagen) to the active growth stage (anagen). The growth of human scalp hair is a complex, high-energy process, which creates a zone of excessive reactive oxygen species called the ‘ring of fire’. As the scalp continues to remain a key area of focus by hair care brands, innovative solutions that can help control the formation of follicle damaging ROS species—driven primarily by environmental threats—are highly sought after.

BotanicalsPlus has developed a scientifically proven technology called Sc-Help™ Defense (INCI: Water (and) Propanediol (and) Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Fruit Extract (and) Opuntia Ficus-Indica Fruit Extract (and) Lycium Chinese Fruit Extract (and) Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Extract). This specifically addresses three prominent environmental threats: UVB, pollution and high-energy visible (HEV) light, which is more commonly known as blue light. Studies have proven these major threats to create excessive reactive oxygen species (ROS) in dermal papillae (DP) cells.
