NUTRIPEPTIDES® is a natural active ingredient rich in rice di- and tri-peptides (Oryza sativa), initially recognized for its nourishing and protective effects on the skin. New SILAB studies have demonstrated the hair repair potential of this active ingredient. Capable of acting on both scalp and hair, NUTRIPEPTIDES® provides a soothing and hydrating action that enhances hair's beauty. 

Skinification of the hair care offering

The scalp is exposed daily to multiple factors (mechanical, thermal, chemical, even environmental) causing redness and irritations. These aggressions are not without consequence for the hair: it becomes dull and loses volume. The hair is thin, dry, and brittle.

With awareness of this situation, hair care routines are changing in order to simultaneously consider the state of the scalp and quality of the hair. At a time when hair care is becoming more sophisticated by adopting skin care strategies, SILAB has decided to capitalize on the nourishing and protective benefits that its active ingredient NUTRIPEPTIDES® offers to the skin to care for the scalp and hair.

Balanced scalp

NUTRIPEPTIDES® provides a hydrating and soothing action to the scalp after 2 months of treatment. Redness is significantly reduced, and the active ingredient has an anti-inflammatory effect, demonstrated in vitro by reduced IL-8 secretion.

Beautified hair

NUTRIPEPTIDES® improves hair quality thanks to its repairing action on the hair fiber, demonstrated by the company’s expertise in digital imaging. The hair’s shine, density, and volume are restored. These effects are significantly perceived by volunteers from the first month of application and intensify over the months of use.

NUTRIPEPTIDES® is a patented active ingredient recommended in all hair repair products at the amount of 0.5 to 2.5%. Available in aqueous solution, it is easy to formulate. It complies with regulations on biodiversity and displays a natural content of 99.4% (ISO 16128). It meets with international cosmetic regulations (Europe, United States, China, Japan, etc.).


SILAB develops, manufactures and markets purified, patented natural active ingredients with proven efficacy to the world's leading names in the cosmetics and dermocosmetics industry. Its products, designed to care for both healthy and fragile skin, are easy to formulate and respectful of the environment. By remaining true to its founding values of independence, excellence, and quality, SILAB has been a world leader in the engineering of natural active ingredients since its creation over 35 years ago.
