Hydroxysomes® Adenosine

Adenosine is a cosmetic active which significantly improves hair density and thickness when applied to the scalp. Pure adenosine has known dermal penetration challenges which can impede efficacy. To overcome this and achieve superior results, adenosine is delivered inside microscopic calcium particles that penetrate into deeper layers of the scalp.
