The Latest Haircare #Buzz Ingredient – Polyamines
Technically not a single ingredient but a group of organic compounds, polyamines are found all around us and have been proven to be tremendously beneficial in haircare and combating hair loss. Polyamines are found in all living organisms and are present in particularly high concentrations in soybeans, green tea, fermented products, as well as in nuts and seeds.
Polyamines play an important role in cell growth, survival, and proliferation and decline as we age as part of the natural ageing process. Since polyamines play an important role in reducing inflammation and supporting healthy cells and regulating their lifespan, a decrease in naturally occurring polyamines would result in a reduced ability for the repair of hair cuticles and hair growth.
According to Brian Oh, the CEO of Venn, “Studies show that due to the cell-stimulating properties of polyamines, they can be a powerful tool in supporting hair growth. More specifically, they activate the hair follicle keratinocyte to elongate the hair growth phase and thereby strengthen the hair shaft. They also increase the hyaluronic acid production,” In other words, polyamines have been proven to repair, refine, and promote hair growth by strengthening the scalp and hair follicles.
The good news is that clinical studies have shown that you can reap the benefits of polyamines at any age from topical application of this wonderful organic compound. Supplementation of polyamines has also demonstrated to increase the cellular lifespan in studies.
Venn’s Synbiotic Polyamine Shampoo is enriched with a proprietary combination of probiotics, prebiotics, vitamins, peptides, and polyamines. Clinically tested to clean, reduce scalp sebum, improve elasticity and reduce dead skin, users have reported a general improvement in the appearance of their hair after a month of continuous use. Given the fact that polyamines effectively promote and regulate healthy cell growth, this definitely does not come as a surprise. As an added bonus, the shampoo is also formulated without synthetic fragrances, parabens, phenoxyethanol, silicones, phthalates, mineral oils, and sulfates.
