A beautiful and healthy head of hair begins at the scalp, but this part of the skin often doesn’t get the attention it deserves until it develops such problems as flakes, itchiness or greasiness. Today, how our hair looks is more important than ever as many are working from home, doing regular video calls, and first impressions are based on what people can see from the shoulders up.
Lubrizol Life Science – Beauty has developed its first active ingredient for hair in order to improve the feel and health of the scalp and hair. Seascalp™ biomarine ingredient minimizes the accumulation of sebaceous lipids and strengthens the skin barrier function for a healthy scalp with less itchiness, greasiness and flakes for up to two weeks.
Seascalp™ biomarine ingredient is ideal for products targeting scalp care as part of a healthy hair care routine that includes products designed specifically for prevention and daily reduction of visible flakes.
Our research has shown the efficacy of the leave-on formulation. In an in vivo study, a diverse group of men and women with visible flakes applied either a serum with 3% Seascalp™ biomarine ingredient or a placebo serum once every two days for 28 days. At the end of the study, the visible presence of flakes was reduced by 40.5%, greasiness was minimized by 26.7% and participants reported enhanced scalp comfort.In another study, men and women with visible flakes applied a 3% Seascalp™ biomarine ingredient serum on their scalps once a day for 28 days. After the application ended, extended scalp protection for two weeks was observed.
