RADICARE®-ECO

The urban antidote for hair and scalp // Powerful antioxidant

HairCare

RADICARE®-ECO is produced using extracts of a medicinal plant with well-known calming effects – lemon balm (Melissa officinalis) – and tender young shoots of barley grass (Hordeum distichon), while it also contains bio-technologically produced α-glucosyl hesperidin. This sophisticated blend of three natural and very powerful antioxidants protects scalp and hair against deleterious urban airborne particulate matter and UV.

An urban lifestyle is exciting and brings with it a wealth of possibilities. But we often have to find a way of achieving a balance between a very fast-paced life and a more sedate form of living that does not involve stress. Hair and scalp are also daily exposed, in addition to the most common mechanical and chemical stressors, to ever-increasing air pollution and the impact of UV irradiation. Long-term exposure to particulate matter and solar irradiation is known to induce chemical damage to both hair and scalp because of the toxic and oxidising pollutants that become attached to them. RADICARE®-ECO forms a non-occlusive shield against urban pollution and protects hair and scalp against environmental stress.

Ex-vivo studies of hair revealed highly significant inhibition of keratin oxidation in all hair layers. Hair integrity was improved without weighing down as seen in conventional conditioner treatment. The gloss of bleached and chlorine-stressed hair was successfully protected. And in addition, semi- and demi permenant colouration of the hair was significantly boosted.

In-vitro studies have shown that RADICARE®-ECO significantly inhibits ROS-induced damage. By means of effective radical scavenging, cells (in a monolayer and 3D skin model) were able to maintain their viability and proliferation and at the same time cellular death was reduced.

SkinCare

RADICARE®-ECO is produced from medicinal plants with well-known calming effects – lemon balm (Melissa officinalis) and tender young shoots of barley grass (Hordeum distichon), and also contains bio-technologically produced α-glucosyl hesperidin. The refined blend of three natural and very powerful antioxidants preserves the skin’s antioxidant balance and protects the skin against air pollution-induced oxidative stress.

Reactive oxygen species (ROS) are molecules resulting from oxidation and the loss of electrons. Exposure to these unstable molecules is called oxidative stress and is the major cause of protein, DNA and lipid damage in cells. Ultimately such damage leads to cell death and is an important factor in premature ageing. The body has its own endogenous antioxidant defence system, which is based on the equilibrium between antioxidants and ROS. Nevertheless, when there is an accumulation of ROS in the body, this equilibrium gets out of balance. By protecting the skin against environmental and chemical stresses, RADICARE®-ECO prevents and restores the lost balance between antioxidants and ROS.

In-vitro studies have shown a reduction of ROS production as well as significant protection of the skin against urban pollution and UV-induced damage in the presence of RADICARE®-ECO.
