SerumScoop: Tips, tricks and news
CRESSATINE is a primary component of our RevivScalp Rejuvenating Scalp Serum Masque. CRESSATINE is a novel aqueous extract of watercress (Nasturtium officinale) and Indian cress (Tropaeolum majus) leaves and shoots, stabilized with plant glycerin, and is ECOCERT qualified.
Excerpts from its specification documentation, prepared by its manufacturer, France-based Solabia:
Titrated with sulfur, CRESSATINE is designed to facilitate hair growth and strengthen hairs from the root:
- by providing the elements (sulfur and other minerals) needed to produce keratin for solid, well-structured hair.
- by helping initiate hair regrowth via the Wnt pathway.
- by stimulating keratinocyte differentiation via the KGFs (keratinocyte growth factors) released when the Wnt/β-catenin pathway is activated.
- by prolonging the growth phase using the Wnt pathway and KGFs.
ACTIVATION OF WNT/ ß-CATENIN SIGNALING PATHWAY
CRESSATINE was shown to boost the activation of WNT / ß-CATENIN signaling pathway by 37% vs. control:
STIMULATION OF KGF PRODUCTION
CRESSATINE® significantly stimulates KGF production, by 107% vs. control, and in a dose-dependent manner, which in turn stimulates the keratinocytes, causes a well- structured hair to be produced, and lengthens the anagen phase:
