The present article reviews the structure of hair and various types of hair damage, demonstrating that repair treatments must intervene at several levels within hair. While film-forming agents are often used, they slow or prevent the penetration of actives. A hair serum including natural actives and omitting these film-formers was thus formulated and tested for its repair capabilities.

Of the fatty acids, 18-MEA appears to be lost to the greatest extent; therefore, it is necessary to restore18-MEA to maintain healthy hair. It has been found that Cutissential Behenyl 18-MEA and Cutissential 18-MEA 40 can help replenish the 18-MEA that is depleted from the hair surface.

Meristem cells of Himalayan red rice were cultured and elicited to produce secondary metabolites. Through an in vitro assay, rejuvenation was shown at the epigenetic level of treated cells. An increased expression of dermatopontin in keratinocytes, besides being a novel finding, implies that ReGeniStem™ Red Rice may be able to firm the skin and improve the skin barrier function.
