Skin + Hair (With Anti-Androgen Complex)
The formulation is split into two parts:
Part one is a hair strengthening and skin improving formulation constraining ingredients that have been shown to improve and strengthen hair growth on the scalp while also clearing, and optimising skin health to help control oily skin, reduce inflammation, and acne.
Part two of this formula is an anti-androgen matrix containing ingredients such as zinc, saw palmetto, spearmint tea, DIM, and fish oil - all backed by research to help lower testosterone levels and women with PCOS. This will help these symptoms from forming in the first place as it helps to correct the underlying hormonal imbalances driving the symptoms.
Due to the nature of the specific symptoms of hirsutism and hair loss in PCOS. It's highly recommended that you use this product for a minimum of 3-6 months to judge its effectiveness. This is because, although it helps to start regulating DHT levels pretty much straight away, results are also relying upon your body's natural hair growth cycle which does take time to show results.
NOTE: Due to the ingredients, Skin + Hair should not be taken with estrogen-based birth control.

A 2016 trial found that zinc resulted in significant improvements in hair loss, hirsutism, reduced inflammation, and markers of oxidative stress. (PMID: 26315303)

A 2010 study of PCOS women found that 2 cups of spearmint tea daily resulted in a significant effect on testosterone levels and also helped to improve the ratio of LH and FSH. (PMID: 19585478)
Omega 3 Fish Oil:
A 2018 meta-analysis, data from randomized controlled trials found that not only did it significantly improve insulin resistance but also circulating testosterone levels and inflammatory markers. (PMID: 29580250)
While more research needs to be done with DIM and PCOS specifically, preclinical data suggest that this compound has both estrogenic and anti-androgenic activity. The compound’s anti-androgenic properties may be particularly clinically meaningful in women such as our patients with PCOS and hyperandrogenism. (PMID: 32549844)
