WHY WE MADE THIS
Happy, healthy hair begins with your scalp. This serum helps strengthen and address damage at the roots, while balancing and nourishing the scalp microbiome for 
long-term hair health.
THE SCIENCE
1

Supports hair growth

Follicusan DP (4%) (a milk protein bioactive) vitalises the scalp and hair follicles to support hair growth.
2

Soothes scalp

Probiocin V moisturises and calms the scalp, helping to reduce any redness and irritation.
3

Strengthens hair anchoring

Elaya Renova (olive stem cell extract) stimulates collagen at the hair follicle’s base, promoting thicker, stronger new hair.
4

Balances scalp microbiome

ProRenew Complex improves skin barrier function, preventing excessive oiliness and dryness of the scalp.

Activating Tonic

While hair is wet, apply the Scalp Activating Tonic to the base of your scalp using the applicator. Wait for hair to air dry. Use every 2-3 days.
