The uniqueness of Lipogaine products lies in its ingredients and formulation. Each Lipogaine ingredient was carefully evaluated and its concentration is perfectly optimized to ensure that the ingredients work synergistically and provide the maximum results. In addition, the ingredients were delivered by our proprietary liposome vehicle to offer the maximum absorption and effectiveness. That is why there are some copycats out there that lists similar ingredients to Lipogaine products but do not deliver the same results.
Minoxidil: Minoxidil is the FDA approved and most widely used ingredient in hair regrowth products as of today. It was first used as an oral drug to lower blood pressure. It was soon found to stimulate hair growth. Rigorous clinical studies have confirmed this “side effect” and its FDA approvals for hair re-growth as topical solutions were granted.
AzetinolTM: A proprietary extract of natural grains. Grains rich in fatty acids, linoleic acid, oleic acid, and vitamin A are processed and extracted to enrich powerful DHT blocking components.
Castor oil: Castor oil has long been used as a natural remedy to combat hair loss and help hair grow fast. It’s antibacterial and anti fungal properties make it beneficial against folliculitis, dandruff and scalp infections, the common cause for hair loss. Caster oil is rich in ricinoleic acid, which helps increase circulation to the scalp and improve hair growth. Ricinoleic acid also helps balance scalp pH and replenish the scalp’s natural oils and undo some of the damage of harsh chemical hair products. The antioxidants in castor oil also support the keratin in hair and help make hair stronger, smoother and less frizzy.
Caffeine: In the 2014 study published in British Journal of Dermatology, a team of renowned academic researchers discovered that hair follicles extracted from human males in presence of low concentration of caffeine showed significant hair growth and prolonged growth phase compared to the hair follicles cultured in pacebo solution. The study found the caffeine also had a beneficial effect on female hair growth as well. Currently there are caffeine based hair loss shampoo from a number of different companies such as Men+Care Thick & Strong Fortifying 2 in 1 Shampoo + Conditioner by Dove, and Alpecin shampoo by Dr. Kurt Wolff GmbH.
Saw Palmetto: (Serenoa repens or Sabal serrulata): A dwarf palm plant native to North America. It primarily grows along the Atlantic coast in Georgia and Florida. The active ingredients are believed to be found in the plant's brown-black berries.
It's a popular dietary supplement for conditions associated with benign prostate gland enlargement (called benign prostatic hyperplasia, or BPH).
Study shows Saw Palmetto may work similarly to finasteride. [Comparitive effectiveness of finasteride vs Serenoa repens in male androgenetic alopecia: a two-year study. Int J Immunopathol Pharmacol. 2012 Oct-Dec;25(4):1167-73.]
Biotin: One of the most important vitamins that improve the nail cell health and skin cell. It was discovered that certain foods contain this vitamin, and if you do not have it in sufficient quantity hair and nails become brittle.
Argan oil: The oil was used traditionally to treat a variety of skin diseases. Its natural properties are a tremendous boon for a scalp plagued by dandruff and irritation. Argan oil is rich in natural phenols that are beneficial to hair follicles. Not only does it promote new hair growth, but also will help you grow healthy, thick looking hair. Many beauticians and dermatologists recommend Argan oil as a cosmetic treatment for the hair and skin. We recommend Argan oil for a healthy head of hair alongside the big three hair loss treatment regimen.
Emu Oil: An anti-inflammatory natural tissue nutrient, full of healthy omega oils that support heal and rejuvenate the skin, as well as deeply moisturize. A recent Boston University study found that emu oil “remarkably” increased the thickness of the scalp skin and awakened dormant hair follicles.
Retinol: studies showed that combining minoxidil and retinol works better than minoxidil alone due to the enhanced penetration of minoxidil and improved scalp condition [ Yoo HG et al, "the additive effects of minoxidil and retinol on human hair growth in vitro." Bio Pharm Bull. 2007, 20(1): 21-6].
Procyanidin Oligomers: Naturally derived ingredients that have shown to stimulate hair growth similarly to Minoxidil. Research studies have shown that procyanidin oligomers possess growth stimulation activity toward hair epithelial cells in vitro and stimulate anagen induction in hair follicles in vivo. [J Invest Dermatol. 1999 Mar;112(3):310-6. Procyanidin oligomers selectively and intensively promote proliferation of mouse hair epithelial cells in vitro and activate hair follicle growth in vivo. by Takahashi T1, Kamiya T, Hasegawa A, Yokoo Y.]
GLA, ALA, Linoleic Acid and Oleic Acid: Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA), Alpha Linolenic Acid (ALA), linoleic and oleic acid are essential fatty acids found in plant oils, which have been demonstrated to interferes the binding of DHT to proteins in in vitro study. Additionally GLA, ALA and oleic acid also presents some anti-inflammatory properties.[J Steroid Biochem. 1988 Mar;29(3):369-70. Effect of free fatty acids on the bioavailability of plasma testosterone and dihydrotestosterone.by Mooradian AD1, Pamplona DM, Viosca SP, Korenman SG.]
