INCI Name:

Chondrus Crispus Extract

CAPALGIN® is an "overwintered" Chondrus crispus extract (OCCE) characterized by a very high concentration of citrullinyl-arginine together with high amounts of floridosides (combination of glycerol and galactose), and taurine. The dipeptide citrullinyl-arginine plays a key role in hair growth as it is a precursor to ornithine that will later be metabolized, through the action of ODC, into the polyamines responsible for stimulating hair growth. This makes of CAPALGIN a product of choice for hair care treatments as it improves hair vitality (growth, anti-hair loss, hair color…) and protection.
