Have any of the experts here heard of Revlon Intragen 5 Hairloss Patch? It looks like its available in Europe but I cannot find any real info on it such as key ingredients etc. The most I can find is that it is a multi facited approach which works on five levels: Anti-hair loss
multi action hair-loss prevention line
__________________________________________________________
The interactives hair-loss preventive range corrects the five major dysfunctions responsbile for stubborn or temporary hair loss, including hormone-related baldness.

Proven results
After a 6-week regimen, clinical tests show:
+22% in hair density
x 2 in resistance to hair loss.
Significant halt to hair loss after 3 months.

Stress, fatigue, depression, seasonal variations, pregnancies, surgeries and excess sebum cal all cause hair to fall out by weakening the metabolism and causing cells to degenerate.However, the main reason for hair loss is hormonal.
Testosterone + the enzyme 5-
Alpha-Reductase =
a shortened hair-growth cycle.
This androgenetic baldness can affect women in their fifties as much as men from adolescence.

Interactives is a line of multiactive hair treatments with effective results shown to correct the main causes of hair problems.

• Natural ingredients
• Spectacular performance
• Remarkable cosmetic results
• Seductive fragrances

This info above ^ is from a web site I am not spamming or trying to endorse this sh*t I just wanted to know what it was all about. All I know is that it is a patch you wear on your back which SUPPOSEDLY acts as an anti-androgen, 5 alpha red blocker, cell rejuvinator etc.

From the ACTUAL patent for this product:

——————————————————–

The active ingredients are:

hop extract . . . 55-65% weight/weight
rosemary extract . . . 25-35% weight/weight
Swertia japonica extract . . . 7-10% weight/weight
Silanodiol salicylate . . . 1-2% weight/weight.
The rest of the ingredients of the formulation are formed by a cosmetically acceptable medium, in general an alcohol or hydroalcohol medium which can contain other auxiliary ingredients, such as vitamins, colorants, fragrances, etc.

Total Active Ingredient
(three extracts+Si compound) . . . 2 to 6% w/w
Rest of ingredients . . . 98 to 94% w/w.

The present invention relates to a hair lotion with properties that prevent hair loss and stimulate hair growth. The peculiarity of the hair lotion object of the invention lies in the synergic effect arising from the interaction of its four active ingredients, consisting of three plant extracts and a synthetic organosilicic compound.

————————-

ROSEMARY

Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis) is a shrub-like plant of the Lamiaceae family, which reaches up to a metre in height with narrow leaves with a whitish underside. Its flowers are liliaceous or white-coloured. The extract used in the lotion of the invention, which contains a wide variety of molecular species, is an hydroalcohol (50% alcohol) extract of the leaves of the plant with a 7-10% w/w concentration of dry material 7-10% w/w. There are numerous studies which have shown that rosemary extract acts in two basic biochemical ways in the complex phenomenon that underlie alopecia:

It protects the cell membranes that help to neutralise the action of free radicals generated by numerous uncontrolled oxidation reactions that take place in the tissues.

It inhibits the formation of the dihydrotestosterone (DHT) directly implicated in alopecia, as explained above.

————————-

HOPS

The hops (Humulus lupulus) is a plant of the cannabinacea family. The main industrial use of this plant is in the manufacture of beer. The hops oil mainly contains terpenes and humulene [(E,E,E)-2,6,6,9-tetramethyl-1,4,8-cycloundecatriene]. An hydroalcohol lotion is used in the lotion of the present invention which act as:

an inhibitor of the activity of the 5-alpha-reductase (type I) enzyme responsible for the formation of DHT, which is the main hormone responsible for hair loss in androgenic alopecia,

an activator of keratinocyte proliferation,

an anti-oxidant inhibitor of free radicals, slightly less effective than the rosemary extract.

————————-

SWERTIA JAPONICA

Of the wide variety of families of the Swertia plant, in the hair lotion of the present invention Swertia japonica is used, concretely a glycol extract with a swertiamarin content not lower than 3% (w/w). This plant is widely accepted in Japan, both for internal and external use, for the treatment of a wide variety of diseases. In studies carried out by S. Utsunomiya, T. Nishiura and Y. Hagihara in the Department of Dermatology of the Tokushima University (Japan) it has been shown that thanks to the direct stimulation of the hair follicles and activation of blood circulation to the hair roots, the extract favours the oxygen and nutrients supply to the base of the follicle, revitalising the hair cells, which translates into a stimulation of hair growth.

————————-

SILANODIOL SALICYLATE

Silanodiol salicylate is a biologically active silicon compound which is described in the International Patent Publication WO 96/10574 as follows: 2,2-dimethyl-4-oxobenzo-1,3-dioxa-2-silane Stabilizer: salicyclic acid ##STR1##

The silicon along with carbon is the most abundant chemical element in nature. In trace quantities it plays an important role in biological systems and is present in the epidermis and the cuticl

here is another patent that shows that Swertia Japonica is an anti-androgen and inhibits 5.alpha-reductase

chrome..that’s the topical product of the same name. It’s the patch they’re wondering about.

Interesting that it contains silanol though..the Stymulactine 21 I’m using contains that.

The Swertia was in a product I used years ago called Tri-Genesis. I didn’t regrow hair though.
