A clinical study on Sabinsa’s patented hair serum formulation was found to significantly improve hair fall and thinning. “Clinical Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of a Hair Serum Product in Healthy Adult Male and Female Volunteers with Hair Fall” by Majeed M, Majeed S, Nagabhushanam K, Mundkur L, Neupane P and Shah K was published in Clinical, Cosmetic and Investigational Dermatology (2020:13 691–700).
The study, an open-label clinical trial, evaluated the efficacy and safety of Sabinsa’s hair serum in healthy adult male and female subjects. The serum, a multi-patented composition of amla extract (Saberry®), freeze-dried coconut water (Cococin™), and the micronutrient selenium (PeptiSeLect® (γ-L-Glutamyl-L-selenomethionine) along with sandalwood and peanut shell extract, was evaluated in 42 subjects for a period of 90 days. Apart from self and dermatological assessment, TrichoScan®, an instrument and software-based tool, was used to quantitatively assess the hair growth.
“The effects of hair loss can be emotionally consequential,” said Sabinsa founder and chairman Dr. Muhammed Majeed. “Though herbs and more recently herbal extracts have been used in hair care, this combination of ingredients offer a synergistic activity, as each of them have a different mechanism for protecting and nourishing hair follicles.”
