As more consumers realize that beautiful looking hair starts with a healthy scalp, the trend for skin actives in hair care products is growing. “Skinification” also feeds into the trend for Resilient Beauty, with its focus on bouncing back from adversity stronger than before and building a better future by using trusted and sustainable ingredients. But which actives beneficial to skin can also be beneficial to the scalp and hair – and in what ways?

New ex vivo and in vivo data conducted by DSM’s hair care and skin care experts show how proven DSM actives in our skin care portfolio can be used to target the hair and scalp challenge consumers care about most, including:

Solutions to help prevent hair loss and hair greying

More than one third of consumers are using scalp care products at home to fight hair thinning and density concerns, and more than 49% of consumers are interested in preventive solutions. DSM’s organically cultivated plant extract ALPAFLOR® EDELWEISS CB and the Five vitamins compound BeauPlex® VH show increased hair density, in vivo over five months.

According to Mintel, greying hair is a primary concern among both men and woman. Based on latest findings from new DSM’s in vivo studies, the both actives, ALPAFLOR® EDELWEISS CB and BeauPlex® VH, help also to improve hair pigmentation after 4 months – resulting in fewer grey hairs.

Solution to help hydration & sebum control

44% of consumers believe that moisturizing is the key to tackling scalp complaints such as itchiness, flaking and sensitivity. DSM’s new data unveils about how the 100% natural active PENTAVITIN® reinforces the scalp barrier in just 24 hours and lowers sebum production to visibly reduce flaking.

Solution to enhance hair volume without compromising on care

Achieving the ultimate volume is one of THE top trends in hair care – and one of the TOP desired benefits by consumers.
