U.S. Patent 7,507,719: PATENT [+4]

Abstract

A combination of a patented four amino acid biomimetic peptide (see U.S. Patent 7,507,719) with a red clover extract rich in Biochanin A can be used to both prevent and stop the hair loss process and stimulate hair growth on the scalp. In addition, this combination can reduce the loss of eye lashes while also stimulating eye lash growth.

Hair Loss Solution for the Scalp and Eye Lashes

   A combination  of a patented  four  amino  acid  biomimetic  peptide  (see  U.S.  Patent  7,507,719) with a red clover extract rich in Biochanin A can be used to both prevent and  stop  the  hair  loss  process  and  stimulate  hair  growth  on  the  scalp.   In  addition,  this  combination can reduce the loss of eye lashes while also stimulating eye lash growth. 
  

The four amino acid biomimetic peptide is acetyl tetrapeptide‐3, which is the reaction  product  of  acetic  acid  and  a  peptide  that  includes  an  amino  acid  sequence that  comprises Lys‐Gly‐His‐Lys.  The peptide is a stimulator of extracellular matrix proteins,  which  promotes  better  hair  anchoring.   It  is  derived  from  a  signal  peptide,  which  has  potent  tissue  protective  properties  and  stimulates  tissue  remodeling  after  the  initial  phase  of  wound  healing.   The  peptide  has  a  direct  effect  on  the  hair  follicle.   The  remodeling signal will increase the size of the hair follicle for increased hair number and  vitality.  
  

Red  clover  (Trifolium  pretense)  flowers  have  been  found  throughout  central  and  northern Europe and Asia.  Red clover was traditionally used to treat asthma, cancer,  gout, a...
