Rich in peptides from the yeast Pichia minuta, isolated from the flowers of azalea, Hairgenyl acts on three regulation mechanisms of hair regrowth: the mitochondrial dynamics, the expression of signalling molecules and the components of epigenetics. According to Silab, it thus supports the biological activity of the dermal papilla and stimulates growth of the hair follicle. Tested on volunteers, Hairgenyl boosts hair regrowth: the hair is thicker, more resistant and the scalp is more densely covered. Silab recommends Hairgenyl in all anti-loss and regrowth hair care products.

Gold for the ITEHPEC Innovation Award

Silver for the Best Active Ingredient Award - Innovation Zone

The Silver Award of the Innovation Zone Best Active Ingredient, organized by Reed Exhibition, also goes to Hairgenyl.

These two prizes reward the Silab’s innovation strategy. Indeed, our company devotes 20% of the turnover and 1/3 of the teams to Research and Development, in order to meet the expectations of our customers with new products, new expertise and new technologies. The development of Hairgenyl is the result of many years of research, which enabled to launch a 100% biotechnological active ingredient, with in vitro proven efficacy on unprecedented 2D and 3D biological models, specifically developed in our laboratories. The recognition of our hair care product on the Brazilian market, expert in this sector, is a great satisfaction for Silab,” highlights Brigitte Closs, Deputy Managing Director for Research and Development.
