Spectral DNC-L® for Hair Loss

Spectral.DNC-L may promote hair growth in men with male patterned hair loss.

This topical cream is a proprietary formula designed to treat advanced balding in men with androgenetic alopecia. Each of the ingredients has specific growth promoting and/or androgen-suppressive properties, including: 134, 219

  • 5% minoxidil
  • Herbal 5-α reductase inhibitors (e.g., olive verbascoside extracts, saw palmetto, and flax seed)
  • Arginine —a follicle stimulating amino acid that has vasodilating and skin healing effects
  • Botanicals (e.g., hops, and ivy,) possessing hair growth promoting activities such as antifungal, antioxidant, antibacterial, DHT -blocking, and sebum-reducing effects
  • Aminexil—a patented molecule similar to minoxidil and shown in clinical trials to help prevent excess collagen production that accelerates aging in and weakens hair roots
  • Nutrients such as biotin, antioxidant procyanidin flavanols from apples, silicon oil, and adenosine
  • Retinol, a form of vitamin A that reduces DHT -harboring sebum and increases absorption of other active ingredients

In a 6-month double-blind, controlled clinical trial topical application of these apple-skin flavonoids produced significant hair growth in study participants with male pattern hair loss (compared to placebo). Procyanidin B-2 exerts both antioxidant and growth-promoting effects on hair follicle cells.140

Many of the active ingredients also have antioxidant and phytosterol constituents. Spectral.DNC-L® is contained in nanosome microspheres composed of organic materials. The manufacturer states that these tiny capsules are 200 times smaller than a skin cell, allowing deeper penetration and absorption of active ingredients over a 12 hour period.219

It is not recommended for hair loss due to medication or hypothyroidism, and will not work in cicatricial (scarring) alopecias. Continued use may be required to maintain new hair growth.219
