Menthol is an effective anti-oxidising agent for the dermal papilla. It prevents the papilla from changing prematurely from the anagen phase to the telogen phase by reducing and limiting the level of oxidation occurring in the papilla and the detrimental effects of free radicals. Apart from its antioxidant properties, research details menthol as being more penetrative into the follicle to help to repair damage and to stimulate dormant hair follicles to grow, but this is regarded as a secondary rather than a primary effect.
We use Vitamin E (Tocopherol) in the Menthol & Vitamin E scalp cream for its antioxidative and anti-inflammatory properties. It aids the effectiveness of the menthol, and its soothing and calming effect helps reduce tissue inflammation resulting in a healthy balanced scalp, along with supporting the reduction of free radicals that cause the dermal papilla to break down and cause hair fall, breakage and loss.
