Provital's Kerascalp (INCI: Propanediol (and) Glycerin (and) Phyllanthus Emblica Fruit Extract) was recently found to slow graying and strengthen follicles in hair, the company reports. The ingredient was previously described to energize the scalp and, in turn, produce strong and healthy hair.
In addition, the halal-certified, vegan and COSMOS-compliant active is said to act from the roots, reducing hair loss and increasing hair shine. According to Provital, Kerascalp's efficacy has been demonstrated in vitro, ex vivo and in vivo in a mixed panel of stressed volunteers.
Kerascalp originates from amla, an ingredient used in India and applied for years in ayurveda medicine. Known as a Rasayana fruit, it is considered a natural adaptogen.
