Nutrafol Announces Line of Scalp Microbiome Support Products

After years of research on the scalp barrier and the impact of internal and environmental triggers on the scalp microbiome, Nutrafol — the leading company reshaping the category of hair health — has announced its newest innovation: A patent-pending, physician-formulated suite of products designed to balance the scalp microbiome and complement the internal foundation established with Nutrafol's award-winning nutraceuticals for optimal hair growth.

Continuing their individualized, whole-body approach to hair health, the new line consists of a Build-Up Blocker exfoliating mask, Root Purifier shampoo, and Stress Reliever scalp essence to create and optimal ecosystem for a healthy scalp barrier.

Just as the gut microbiome is essential for optimal health, so too is the scalp microbiome, which shields hair follicles and the scalp from infection, toxins, irritation, hair damage, and more. The stronger your scalp microbiome, the healthier your hair will be.

Nutrafol's new Scalp Microbiome suite — Build-Up Blocker, Root Purifier, and Stress Reliever — are vegan, sulfate, and paraben free, and contain natural ingredients that nourish and preserve the scalp microbiome. They have also received the Microbiome Friendly Seal, a certification reserved for products that follow specific clinical testing to ensure each product protects and promotes good diversity of microbes.

"The scalp microbiome is not just another trendy health topic being talked about on social media — it is an important element to overall hair health that should be cared for just as much as people care about their skin routines," said Giorgos Tsetis, CEO and co-founder of Nutrafol, via a press release. "Nutrafol has spent an extensive amount of time studying and understanding the impact that a balanced scap microbiome has on our hair and has created innovative formulas aimed at maintaining the optimal ecosystem for healthy hair, as a complement to our hair growth nutraceuticals. We're excited to announce the launch of Scalp Microbiome Support, a revolutionary suite of products that will bring and keep scalp health at the forefront of the hair health industry conversation."

Here's a look at the products:

Build-Up Blocker

An exfoliating mask, used 1-2 times per week, that removes excess oil buildup using natural key ingredients, gentle acids, sebum balancing amino acids, and plant detoxifiers. 100% of users had a clinically effective reduction in sebum immediately.

Root Purifier

A daily nourishing and cleansing shampoo containing clinically proven ingredients such as a natural alternative to sulfates, a biosurfactant, prebiotics, and vegan protein, which balances PH levels and creates the ideal environment for a healthy scalp and thriving hair. 100% of users had a clinical effective reduction in sebum immediately.

Stress Reliever

A scalp microbiome essence, used daily, made with soothing botanicals, collagen boosters, and pre & postbiotics to calm the scalp, which visibly reduces redness and improves a dry, flaky, sensitive scalp. 97% of users felt their scalp was soothed after incorporating it into their weekly routine for four weeks.

"Generally speaking, scalps are often under washed and lathered with harsh chemicals that strip scalp microbiomes — exposing the scalp to damaging factors like pollution, toxins, dirt and more," said board-certified dermatologist Dr. Chesahna Kindred, MD in a press release. "Existing scalp care is often focused on improving specific scalp issues. Nutrafol's Scalp Microbiome Support focuses on how balancing the scalp microbiome directly impacts the overall look and feel of hair, creating a foundation for healthy hair, allowing hair to grow to its fullest potential. Physicians have been waiting for a revolutionary portfolio of products like Scalp Microbiome to enter the market that will educate patients on the importance of a healthy scalp and meet all of the unique and individualized needs that our patients have when it comes to caring for their scalp microbiomes."

Nutrafol's Scalp Microbiome line follows the recent launch of Growth Activator, the patent-pending, first-of-its-kind hair serum that uses the power of plant-derived exosomes from Ashwagandha seeds to boost cellular renewal on the scalp for thicker-looking hair. Nutrafol's Scalp Microbiome Support is available for individual purchase, based on consumer needs, as well as in travel and full-size bottles.
