INCI: Glycerin (and) Water (and) Nasturtium officinale extract (and) Tropaeolum majus extract
Definition: CRESSATINE® is obtained by an aqueous extract of watercress (Nasturtium officinale) and Indian cress (Tropaeolum majus) leaves and shoots, stabilized with vegetable glycerin.
Mode of action: Titrated in sulfur, CRESSATINE® stimulates and prolongs hair growth and strengthens hair from the roots (anti-aging effect for hair).CRESSATINE® provides the elements needed to produce keratin for resistant, well structured hair and helps initiate regeneration, via the Wnt pathway. Keratinocyte differentiation is stimulated with the release of KGF (Keratinocyte Growth Factor), thanks to the Wnt activation. KGFs influence hair shape and also its strength. The length of the growth phase is increased by the activation of this pathway and through KGF production.
CRESSATINE® increases the β-catenin content:
+2% with 0.25%
+20% with 1.0%
+37% with CRESSATINE® at 2.5%
The hair growth is initiated by the activation of the Wnt/ βcatenin pathway, stimulating KGF production.
USE LEVEL: 0.25-2.5%
