visibly defy gray hair

Chromafend™ biofunctional from Ashland’s Vincience laboratories in France is extracted from golden flax seeds (Linseed) that are organically grown and ecoextracted.¹ Inspired by the “Hair Melanin System,” chromafend™ biofunctional is associated with key pigmentation biomarkers linked to hair graying.

With clinically proven benefits on gray hair reduction, it can be used in hair treatments to address the following:

  • when the first signs of gray hair are seen
  • boost gray hair darkening and vitality
  • space out gray hair coloration
  • boost darkening hairs in men’s beards

key features and benefits

boosting key pigmentation markers

  • increased tyrosinase, in vitro, ex vivo, in vivo
  • increased TRP1, pmel17, in vitro
  • increased MITF and cKit known as critical regulators of melanocytes and melanocyte stem cells (in vitro)
  • increased PAR-2 involved in melanin transfer (in vitro)
  • increased melanin in the hair cortex (ex vivo)

limiting the appearance of grey hair (in vivo)

  • increased hair darkening (L* value)
  • increased amount of dark hair (trichoScan)
  • long lasting benefits (still effective at 120 days)

¹ eco-extracted according to the COSMOS* standard
