Oxford Biolabs Ltd. announces the publication of the latest research study into the effect of TRX2® Molecular Food Supplement for Hair and TRX2® Hair Revitalising Lotion on hair loss in men and women. The study described here has been published in the Journal of Cosmetics, Dermatological Sciences and Applications1.
Besides safety, the efficacy of a product is one of its most important features. Every manufacturer should prove the efficacy of their products to consumers. This is why we engage in third-party testing of our products. To evaluate the efficacy of TRX2® Molecular Food Supplement for Hair and TRX2® Hair Revitalising Lotion, we teamed up with the renowned research institute Dermatest in Münster, Germany.
Both products were tested over a 9-month period. Altogether 79 subjects, who were diagnosed with hereditary alopecia, participated in this study. They were separated into four different study groups. The subjects of the first group were treated with the TRX2® supplement, the second with the TRX2® lotion and the third with both products, whereas the subjects of the fourth received neither product, as they served as a no-treatment control group.
When comparing the hair loss of all participants before and after the 9-month study, the results demonstrated that on average only the first three groups showed a reduction in hair loss, whereas the no-treatment control group showed worse hair loss (see Figure 1). Also, the ratio of anagen (actively growing) hair to telogen (non-growing, resting) hair at the beginning of the study was compared to the ratio at the end of the study. Again, only the study groups that were treated with the TRX2® products showed an improved ratio of anagen to telogen hair (see Figure 2). These results demonstrate that the TRX2® supplement and the TRX2® hair lotion are similarly effective.
By the end of the study, 75% of the participants in the first three groups reported a reduced rate of hair loss, and 67% considered their hair to look healthier than at the beginning of the study.
Dr. Michael Bayer, study leader at Dermatest and first author of the study commented: “These results show that the treatments with the TRX2 supplement and the TRX2 hair lotion result in a reduced rate of hair loss and an increased amount of actively growing hair. This proves that the TRX2 formulation effectively combats the progression of hereditary hair loss. But it also tells us that the TRX2 treatments are most effective when used from the onset of hair loss.”
