NEW YORK, Sept. 02, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nutrafol, the pioneer of hair wellness, today announced that it has been awarded a patent for its Synergen Complex™ - a proprietary blend of clinically effective standardized, medical-grade botanicals formulated in unique ratios that target the root causes of hair thinning in men and women. As the first company to obtain a patent on the botanical blend of its formulation, Nutrafol continues to solidify its position as an innovator in hair science and a trusted leader in the hair wellness category, offering a drug-free, holistic alternative to the hair care and hair loss solutions that exist in the market.
Nutrafol’s patented Synergen Complex is a unique combination of medical-grade, bioactive ingredients that addresses the underlying causes of thinning hair - like stress, hormones and nutrition - with stress adaptogens, antioxidants, and DHT-targeting botanicals. The Synergen Complex is the foundational formula in Nutrafol’s three core products - Nutrafol Women, Men and Women’s Balance - clinically shown to improve hair growth and reduce shedding in four clinical studies. Patents in the supplement space are rare due to the difficulty in proving the effectiveness of a combination of botanical ingredients, making Nutrafol’s Synergen Complex patent a major milestone for the brand.
“Since pioneering the hair wellness category in 2016, we have been determined to deliver the most natural and effective products possible,” said Giorgos Tsetis, CEO and co-founder of Nutrafol. “The Synergen Complex patent further validates the importance of our holistic, whole body approach to hair health, and continues to set the bar higher for efficacy in the supplement industry. Nutrafol’s patent is a significant achievement for our company, and for the hair wellness category as a whole.”
Since its inception, Nutrafol’s holistic approach to hair wellness has centered around extensive research and testing to prove the efficacy of its products. Today, Nutrafol leverages over 10 patents on the extraction methods of its ingredients, in addition to the groundbreaking Synergen Complex.
“At Nutrafol, we’re committed to staying on the forefront of science, ensuring all of our products are backed by clinical studies to best support our customers as they navigate their personal hair journeys,” said Roland Peralta, Chief Innovation and Product Officer and co-founder of Nutrafol. “We have persevered through countless clinical trials 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.”
