Our scientific studies

The efficacy of Keranat™ was evaluated in two randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical studies.

The results showed that Keranat™ not only reduces hair loss, but also leaves hair healthier and shinier.

Keranat™ mechanism of action

The Keranat™ mechanism of action is original because it acts on the biological motor of hair : the dermal papilla.

1. Excretion of IGF-1 growth factor

Researchers have shown that hair loss in women may be related to a lower level of IGF1, which is a growth factor secreted by the dermal papilla1.

IGF1 promotes cell multiplication in the bulb and regulates the hair cycle.

In ex vivo tests, Keranat™ significantly increases the excretion of IGF1. As a result, cell proliferation in the bulb increases.

2. Cell proliferation in the hair bulb

Keranat™ significantly stimulates cell proliferation in the bulb (+140%) cwhich is a good indicator of optimal hair growth.

3. Hair anchoring

Keranat™ increases the thickness of collagen in the connective tissue, which allows better hair anchoring.

Results of the oral clinical studies

1. Reduction of hair loss

Keranat™ significantly reduced hair loss after 12 weeks , compared to the placebo.

This average reduction of 50% was measured by an objective and recognised method: the phototrichogram.

Similarly, 91% of women observed a reduction in hair loss. (self-evaluation).

2. Hair shine and health

After 6 weeks, the dermatologist recorded that subjects who consumed Keranat™ had shinier, healthier hair.

After 12 weeks, hair was significantly shinier and healthier with Keranat™ compared to the placebo.

Similarly, after 12 weeks, 75% of women noticed that their hair was brighter, softer and suppler.

3. Réduction de la sécheresse du cuir chevelu

After 6 weeks, the dermatologist recorded that scalp dryness was reduced reduced in subjects who consumed Keranat™.

After 12 weeks, Keranat™ significantly reduces dryness of the scalp compared to the placebo.
