Bienfaits du millet

Today, we know that the health of hair also depends on nutraceuticals. But while vegan cosmetics are flourishing, it was impossible to find effective capsules without active ingredients of animal origin.

Our mission was therefore to develop the first vegetable and organic formula for beautiful hair. It combines a biotin-rich basil with a millet with effects demonstrated by two clinical studies.

EFFICIENCY

First 100% Vegan and Organic hair formula

We have designed the only formula for healthy, vegan and effective organic hair. With us, no more cysteine extracted from goose feathers and keratin from sheep's wool! It combines the first vegetable biotin with a patented millet oil supported by 2 clinical studies on 120 people.

Millet is good, vectorized millet is even better!

Millet's key active ingredient, miliacin, is vectorized with wheat ceramides giving it 6 times greater bioavailability. Coming from a 100% French industry, our millet is the perfect marriage between nature and science, as 91% of participants in clinical studies confirmed a reduction in hair loss.

A biotin extracted from Ocimum basilicum L

Our formula contains the first vegetable biotin (vitamin B8) from organic farming. This hair vitamin is extracted from biodynamically grown basil leaves.

BENEFITS

In addition to biotin, our formula contains a patented millet (Keranat®) supported by two clinical studies on 120 people.

The recognized benefits of millet and biotin are:

  • Keranat® enhances hair shine and beauty. Biotin helps maintain normal hair.

SCIENCE

Hair loss concerns us all

Our hair capital is subject to tests throughout our lives :

  • The return of seasons such as summer that weakens our hair (sea, sun...).
  • After a period of "physical" stress: malnutrition, intense anxiety, surgery...
  • When there are major hormonal variations (puberty, menopause, aging, pregnancy).
  • And in some cases, after pathologies that cause hair loss.

The mechanisms of hair loss

Hair is alive, and at any moment we find hair at different stages of development :

  • growing (80% of hair at this stage)
  • stable (1% of hair at this stage)
  • It is therefore completely normal to lose hair on a daily basis. Generally, more than 100 hairs lost per day is called alopecia, i.e. a loss that is too important and therefore causes a visible decrease in hair density.

    According to a survey IFOP, 3 out of 4 French people who do not suffer from baldness declare that they are confronted with a significant loss of hair. Women are particularly prone to this phenomenon [1].

    The hair cycle

    In addition to anti-hair loss treatments or cosmetic care, it is now possible to take care of your hair with nutricosmetics. And to understand how to act, we must first go back to the natural hair cycle, because that's where it all comes down to [2,3].

    i. Hair growth, Anagen phase
    This is the crucial phase, it lasts 2 to 6 years. Normal hair is 85% anagen hair, i.e. in the "growing" phase. Today it is strongly affected by stress and pollution. In the presence of pollution particles, a significant decrease in the beta-catenin protein, responsible for hair growth, is detected. Results ? A weakened anagen phase, dull and less dense hair, and significant hair loss [4]. Indeed, it is from the very beginning of this phase that hair growth is activated and that the hair becomes anchored in its follicle. The follicle is therefore a strategic and key place in the health of the hair.

    Viewing the length of this stage, it is easy to understand that a weakening can have a dramatic effect on the health and appearance of the hair, as it will take several years before a "new generation" of growth is achieved.

    ii. Hair maintenance, Catagen phase
    Surprisingly, this is the shortest phase of the cycle, since it lasts only 3 weeks on average. Logically, only 1% of the hair is in this phase. During these three weeks, the hair must be stable and strengthened - so that it does not move too quickly into the telogen phase (hair loss).
     
    iii. Hair loss, Telogen phase
    This phase lasts 3 to 4 months and is inevitable. It concerns a maximum of 15% of a normal hair. At the end of this phase, the hair falls out, leaving the place to the hair follicle reactivated in the anagen phase. This is the beginning of a new cycle and therefore of a new hair. In normal hair, we lose 50 to 100 hairs per day. A more important hair loss can be a sign of a problem.

    To act on the hair growth cycle, the ideal is to aim at the anagen phase, since it is there that the hair is formed and everything is at stake. Nutraceuticals offer precisely the possibility to do just that, thanks to certain ingredients that have proven themselves in clinical trials.

    The Keranat®: at last a vegetal AND effective approach thanks to millet!

    The originality of Keranat® compared to first generation solutions, such as keratin or cysteine, is that it acts on the two crucial phases of the hair cycle: growth and maintenance. In other words, rather than relying entirely on structure (keratin and its precursors such as cysteine), Keranat® provides the foundation: hair growth and its foundations. Moreover, keratin suffers from low bioavailability and is of exclusively animal origin. Whereas millet is bioavailable and 100% vegetable, organic and vegan.

    2 clinical studies using Keranat®

    Keranat® has been the subject of two well-conducted clinical studies [5,6]. 5,6] They were carried out on a total of 120 women who noted clear positive effects on their hair. The clinical tests carried out on these women demonstrated the millet-hair link:

    • A reduction in hair loss,
    • An activation of their hair growth,
    • And an improvement in the beauty and shine of their hair.

    Miliacin, the key molecule of Keranat®

    Miliacin from millet is the main molecule that gives Keranat® its activity. Clinical data have shown that it is beneficial in maintaining the natural hair cycle by reinforcing the anagen (growth) phase. In particular, it has been shown to increase the production of growth factors such as IGF1 and therefore of cell proliferation at the level of the hair follicle bulb. These extremely interesting results have been associated with an increase in the thickness of collagen (structural fiber of our body) in the bulb. The results of these trials suggest a real positive effect of Keranat® on hair growth and a better anchoring of the hair at its base.

    Vectorized miliacin, 6 times more effective

    The encapsulation technology patented by our partner Robertet allows our miliacin to have a better bioavailability and therefore a better efficacy. Miliacin is encapsulated in polar lipids extracted from wheat, which also have a function, since they boost the production of collagen, a major constituent of the hair sheath. The hair is thus strengthened during the catagen phase (maintenance).

    The first vegetable biotin bio

    Biotin, known as the hair vitamin, is now offered exclusively in a synthetic form. We have succeeded in finding this vitamin in a natural and organic form, extracted from Basil leaves.

Questions - Answers

En combien de temps obtient-on les premiers effets ?

Le millet agit sur la phase dite anagène, soit la pousse du cheveu. Cette phase est très longue puisqu’elle dure 2 à 5 ans selon les personnes. Ainsi les études cliniques ont montré qu’il est nécessaire de prendre le millet pendant 3 mois pour constater ses effets. C’est donc logiquement la durée minimale d’utilisation que nous recommandons.

Est-ce que cette formule contient du gluten ?

Question légitime puisque le Keranat® est à base de millet (90%) et de blé (10%) ! Cependant, le gluten est séparé du produit dès les premières étapes de production. En fin de production, chaque lot est analysé et garanti SANS GLUTEN. Nos analyses sont disponibles juste ici.

Pourquoi pas plus de biotine dans votre produit ?

La biotine est appelée vitamine des cheveux. Elle est donc fréquemment utilisée dans les produits nutricosmétiques. Cependant les études sont formelles, très peu de personnes souffrent de carence en biotine, et « surcharger » le corps de cette vitamine ne sert strictement à rien [7]. Cette dérive du marché vers « toujours plus de biotine » est due à 2 éléments qui n’ont rien de scientifique : le coût extrêmement faible de la biotine synthétique, et l’absence de limite réglementaire sur les maximums autorisés dans les formules…

Est-ce que cette formule soigne la calvitie ? (je demande pour un ami...)

Nous devons nous rendre à l’évidence : non. Les mécanismes de la calvitie sont différents de ceux de l’alopécie classique, et il s’agit surtout d’un phénomène héréditaire (merci papa !). La calvitie (alopécie androgénétique) est soumise à certaines hormones masculines (principalement la testostérone) qui jouent un rôle important dans son mécanisme. Et malheureusement, le millet n’a pas d’action sur ces phénomènes hormonaux…

Pourquoi vous n’avez pas utilisé la kératine ou la cystéine comme tout le monde ?

Comme le cheveu est composé à plus de 95% de kératine (protéine de structure du cheveu), il est tentant de penser qu’en prenant cette protéine, ou un acide aminé important de sa composition : la cystéine, on va améliorer la santé de nos cheveux. Sauf que les cheveux sont soumis à un processus dynamique : la pousse. C’est en stimulant la prolifération cellulaire du bulbe et du follicule que notre millet assure un cheveu solidement ancré et une pousse plus longue et plus pérenne.De plus, aussi bien la kératine que la cystéine sont peu biodisponibles et d’origine animale (laine de mouton et plumes d’oies), ce qui ne permet pas d’avoir un produit efficace, bio et vegan !

Pourquoi l’huile de millet dans ma gélule n’est pas liquide ?

L’huile de millet est effectivement liquide. Cependant, pour la formuler avec notre biotine en poudre, nous avons choisi d’utiliser le beurre de karité bio. Toutes les autres huiles ont échoué et nous ne souhaitions pas utiliser un émulsifiant chimique. C’est le beurre de karité qui donne donc cet aspect “beurre” à notre formule.

L’intérieur de ma gélule a fondu ! Pourquoi ?

Si les gélules sont exposées à des températures supérieures à 35°C pendant quelques heures, le beurre de karité peut fondre et l’intérieur des gélules devient liquide. Cela ne signifie pas que le produit est dégradé, il redevient solide une fois revenu à une température inférieure à 35°C. Veillez toutefois à conserver le produit à des températures inférieures à 30°C et à l’abri de l'humidité pour une préservation optimale.

Qu’est-ce que le millet ?

Le millet, Panicum miliaceum, est une céréale vivrière à très petite graine. Il est consommé par les chasseurs-cueilleurs avant d’être cultivé. On le retrouve même parmi les sept plantes sacrées des jardins suspendus de Babylone. Malgré sa richesse nutritionnelle, il a progressivement disparu de nos champs avec l’industrialisation de l’agriculture.
