This week, the ingredient supplier announced that its proprietary blend of β-glucogallin, cocos nucifera, and selenopeptides has been granted a patent in Mexico for the ability to protect dermal papilla cells.

As consumer demand for clean, green, and natural beauty products grows so too does the sophistication of ingredients that meet the needs of cosmetic chemists developing the formulations that fit in this space.

For instance, just over one month ago the team behind hair supplement brand Nutrafol announced having secured a US patent for their proprietary blend of botanical ingredients, as Cosmetics Design reported​. But developing sophisticated naturals is no small feat.

As Nutrafol Co-Founder and Chief Innovation and Product Officer Roland Peralta remarked at the time, “We have persevered through countless clinical trails and rigorous testing to secure the Synergen Complex patent. As proponents of holistic wellness, proving the efficacy of our proprietary blend is imperative to furthering innovation in hair science and continuing to deliver on the promise we’ve made to our users.”

Sabinsa’s newly patented ingredient technology is for use in topical hair products

In contrast to what the team at Nutrafol have developed in supplement form, Sabinsa’ new ingredient combination is for use in topical hair and scalp care products, like a serum.

“Preparations to stimulate hair growth are in high demand, and it’s past time for there to be a natural alternative in this category,”​ says Dr. Muhammed Majeed, Founder and Chairman of Sabinsa, in his remarks to the press this week.

“We’re pleased,” ​he says, “that the evidence we presented was compelling enough to be granted this latest patent.” ​The ingredient blend has also secured patents in the US, Canada, Japan, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and beyond.

The science and data behind Sabinsa’s dermal-papilla-cell-protecting ingredient blend

The inputs behind the hair growth tech are, according to this week’s press release about patent MX355546, “10% w/w of 1-O-galloyl-β-D-glucose (β-glucogallin), specifically isolated from Emblica officinalis (Saberry) and a concentrate from the liquid endosperm of Cocos nucifera (Cococin) along with selenopeptides for protecting the dermal papilla cells.”​ 

Essentially the ingredient blend acts to protect derma papilla cells from UV damage. This protection means that 95% more of such cells remain in comparison to those not protected from UV. And the cells can then do their part in the hair formation, growth, and cycling process, as the Sabinsa release explains it. More details on the ingredient technology and clinical study data can be found in the online Clinical, Cosmetic and Investigational Dermatology journal published by Dove Press.
