AnaGain [1], Mibelle Biochemistry’s new active ingredient, is derived from sprouts of organic pea and has been designed to reduce hair loss by inducing dermal papilla cells to reactivate hair growth.

Hair loss affects both women and men. It is caused by an imbalance of the hair growth cycle leading to a reduced number of growing (anagen) hair combined with an increased number of degenerating (telogen) ones,” explains the company.

Mibelle says that DNA microarray analysis of plucked hair follicles has shown that AnaGain activates, in the dermal papilla, specific signal molecules which are required to initiate the growth of a new hair.

According to the company, clinical study conducted for three months on volunteers with mild to moderate hair loss showed the capacity of AnaGain to reduce it:

- the density of anagen hair was increased by 8 %
- the density of telogen hair was reduced by more than 28 %.

By reactivating hair growth, AnaGain helps the hairs to keep their original density and thickness,” concludes Mibelle.
