We created MONPURE as a way of transforming how we care for the scalp, bridging the gap between skin and haircare. We were startled at how so many people were treating issues such as hair loss and hair thinning with harsh toxic chemicals. Hence we prioritise natural ingredients in our formulations as a healthier, more holistic way of dealing with such issues. So what are these ingredients and why are they so great for hair loss? Let us enlighten you …
Pumpkin Seed Extract
Not only does this clever extract boost hair follicles by nourishing the scalp, research has shown this extract can help block an enzyme called 5-alpha reductase which has been shown to produce a chemical called DHT from testosterone, which causes hair loss. It’s the star ingredient of our Follicle Boost Hair Density Serum.
Jojoba is a North American plant (pronounced “hohoba”) from which a liquid wax can be extracted and turned into beads that can be used to gently buff away dead skin cells and product build-up on the scalp – creating the best environment for hair growth. Find it in our Clarifying Scalp Scrub.
This nutrient-rich vegetable oil is packed with Vitamin E, to strengthen and hydrate the scalp (and a healthy scalp leads to thicker, fuller hair after all). It’s highly prized when it comes to boosting hair growth, due to the fact that it contains spermidine, which studies have indicated* prolongs the hair’s anagen (growth) phase. It’s in our Follicle Boost Hair Density Serum.
Packed with essential vitamins and fatty acids as well as delivering a good glug of moisture, coconut is like a nourishing espresso shot for your scalp, stimulating hair growth and helping to repair broken strands. It features in our Strengthening Essence-Conditioner.
Camellia Tea Oil
Widely used in Asia, this essential oil is extracted from the seeds of the tea plant. Rich in antioxidants and vitamins, as well as essential fatty acids it delivers an intense hit of nourishment to neglected scalps to stimulate hair follicles and enhance healthy hair growth, while leaving it conditioned. Discover it in our Nourish and Stimulate Scalp Mask.
