Telocapil   

INCI Name: 

Butylene Glycol, Water, Dihydromyricetin

Company:

 Provital Group

Description:

Telocapil is a purified hydrosoluble fraction obtained from "Myrica cerifera L.". It contains a minimum 4.5% Dihydromyricetin. It is a natural active ingredient that reduces the amount and impairs the quality of undesired hair, thus reducing the need for depilation sessions. Chemical and enzymatic actions may produce deleterious side-effects on the rest of skin components, because their action is rather aggressive.

The action of Telocapil is based on the selective inhibitory activity of dihydromyricetin on the IGF-1- receptor tyrosine-kinase activity, in the hair matrix cells. This action prevents stimuli that boost follicular growth during the anagen phase (figure 6). Consequently, many hairs never grow and many hairs grow to a lesser degree. Such an action on the hair cycle reduces the amount of hairs and impairs their quality, eventually reducing the need for depilation/shaving. Telocapil may be used in specific post-depilation treatments and daily use products such as body moisturizing and after-shaves.
