Evonik has launched a skin-identical sphingolipid that prevents hair loss by addressing scalp health, strengthening the hair follicle and rebalancing the lifecycle of hair.

Sphingony (INCI: Sphinganine) has been shown in in vitro studies to balance the hair cycle by inhibition of 5-α-reductase, improving the scalp renewal capacity, stimulating formation of essential building blocks like proteins and ceramides and by improving scalp health by equalizing the microflora.

Extended in vivo studies have confirmed that the active significantly prevents hair loss by prolonging the anagen growth phase of hair and effectively improves hair quality and scalp health.

The new active will be presented at in-cosmetics 2014 in Hamburg, Germany.
