RADICARE®-ECO is produced using extracts of a medicinal plant with well-known calming effects—lemon balm (Melissa officinalis)—and tender young shoots of barley grass (Hordeum distichon), while it also contains biotechnologically produced α-glucosyl hesperidin. This sophisticated blend of three natural and very powerful antioxidants protects the scalp and hair against deleterious urban airborne particulate matter and UV.
An urban lifestyle is exciting and brings with it a wealth of possibilities, but we often have to find a way of achieving a balance between a very fast-paced life and a more sedate form of living that does not involve stress. Hair and scalp are also daily exposed, in addition to the most common mechanical and chemical stressors, to ever-increasing air pollution and the impact of UV irradiation. Long-term exposure to particulate matter and solar irradiation is known to induce chemical damage to both hair and scalp because of the toxic and oxidizing pollutants that become attached to them. RADICARE®-ECO forms a non-occlusive shield against urban pollution and protects hair and scalp against environmental stress.
Ex-vivo studies of hair revealed highly significant inhibition of keratin oxidation in all hair layers. Hair integrity was improved without weighing down as seen in conventional conditioner treatment. The gloss of bleached and chlorine-stressed hair was successfully protected. And in addition, semi- and demi-permanent coloration of the hair was significantly boosted.
In vitro studies have shown that RADICARE®-ECO significantly inhibits ROS-induced damage. Through effective radical scavenging, cells (in a monolayer and 3D skin model) were able to maintain their viability and proliferation and at the same time, cellular death was reduced.
