(1) We conducted our own clinical testing for two years on more than 200 individuals, and we have witnessed first-hand and documented the successful results. These individuals have achieved a restoration of lost hair, volume, luster, and health to their hair, contrary to the caveat that it has never been proven that any shampoo can actually regrow hair. In a press interview, Caron Bio CEO, Cho Jin-Hyung talked about his personal experience saying, “My brother-in-law who has been wearing a wig due to premature hair loss now takes off his wig with confidence.”
(2) The C3 solution (derived from natural plant extracts) has been validated in an in-vitro efficacy test on hair loss and hair growth, as well as a cytotoxicity test conducted by Biotoxtech, the official Korean certification body of the US Food & Drug Administration. It was found that the C3 solution, in a concentration of 0.15%, significantly increased the gene expression of fibroblast growth factors (FGF-7 which enhances fibroblasts proliferation or cell division and initiates a new hair cycle), by about 1.45 times higher than the negative control.
Using the same concentration of the C3 solution, it was also confirmed that the gene expression of FGF10, which contributes to the initial formation of cells and promotes hair growth by inducing the anagen or growth phase in resting hair follicles, increased by about 1.7 fold in comparison to the negative control.
(3) The C3 Shampoo is the only adult shampoo on the market today that bears the 5-Star Seal for excellence from Dermatest GmbH, a prestigious research institute in Germany. This seal is a mark of distinction certifying the effectiveness, application safety, and skin compatibility of our products through a Dermal Tolerability Test. Products tested with successful results receive the rating ‘Clinically Tested’. We are also nearing the completion of a Trichoscan Test, an advanced German patented technology to analyze the biologic parameters of hair growth, which are: hair density, hair diameter, hair growth rate, and anagen/telogen ratio.
(4) We comply with the US FDA OTC Drug Review and Registration process.
Our Manufacturing Facilities And Processes
We uphold high-quality assurance protocols. We manufacture our products in a Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) certified facility to ensure that they are consistently produced and controlled according to international quality standards. Consistent with the plant-based trend and consumers’ increased concern about both scalp and hair health and aesthetics, we continue to work with scientists at Sungkyunkwan University in Korea through an industry advisory contract and industry-academic cooperation projects.
