The efficiency of the éprouvage key ingredient, Redensyl® was evaluated at 3% in a double-blind test versus a placebo by the manufacturer of Redensyl®, Induchem. Twenty six male volunteers were selected and these men applied the placebo or the product with 3% of Redensyl® on their whole scalp daily for 3 months. At the end of the test period, a shaved section of each volunteer was measured with phototrichogram techniques - a method to monitor whether the hair was in the growth phase (anagen) or hair fall phase (telogen). In this test, it was found that Redensyl® at 3% reduces the hair fall (telogen) phase by 17%*.
Additional in vitro tests were performed by testing Redensyl® at 1% to evaluate its potential on hair growth. Hair of four male donors suffering from alopecia were maintained alive in normal hair culture conditions. After 7 and 10 days, hair growth was measured compared to day 0 with pictures analysis. In these tests, Redensyl® at 1% increased hair growth by +214%** compared to untreated hair.
