Now, I’m sure you’ve heard us mention from time to time that our PHL ECOHAIR product range contains Jarilla….but we don’t think we’ve really taken the time to tell you how amazing Jarilla can be…
Let’s start with what Jarilla actually is. Jarilla is a plant, a shrub to be precise. It grows between the months of October and November and is easily recognisable with its yellow flower. The fruits of Jarilla are dry capsuels which contain grey hairs and five seeds.
So where do we source Jarilla? It’s found in South America, more specifically Bolivia, Chile, Peru and Argentina. It grows in open woodland, shrubland and rough grassland.
Surprisingly, Jarilla has been used for centuries. Jarilla was a key ingredient in traditional Argentinian medicines for many years. Thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties, it has been used to treat arthritis, digestive disorders and chronic skin ailments involving inflammatory and oxidative processes. It was also used to fight bacterial infections!
Back in 2010, it was discovered that Jarilla extracts have a brilliant effect on hair loss and hair regrowth. Combined with coffee bean extract, Jarilla extract was shown to encourage hair regrowth by helping hair follicles into their growth phase.
So does Jarilla really work? Yes it does! During our clinical trial, PHL ECOHAIR Treatment was tested on 52 patients, among those were Alopecia Areata patients. After 90 days of use, 84.6% of patients saw hair regrowth and a reduction in hair loss.
Let’s discuss the different types of hair loss that you can experience. The most common types of alopecia are:
- Androgenetic alopecia (male pattern baldness)
- Telogen effluvium
- Chemotherapy-induced alopecia
- Alopecia Areata
They are all immune-inflammatory disorders in which pro-inflammatory cytokines and oxidative stress play an important role.
What we are trying to tell you is that we can prove that our products work. We are very proud to be able to introduce products to the market place that aren’t just a gimmick. Still not convinced? Give our blog post about our customer Rebecca a read...
