Most anti-dandruff products use zinc pyrithione. Some use selenium sulfide, coal tar or ketoconazole. These ingredients are generally recognized as safe and effective, but Dr. Kazin took a completely different path. She wanted to create products that were best in class for addressing scalp and flaking issues AND at the same time give her patients hair that was soft, manageable, color stable with a luxurious look and feel.
To get there, she started with the concept that HairSanity is skin care for the scalp. She had extensive success in her practice using hydrocortisone to effectively relieve itch and irritation anywhere on the skin. It is a proven, gentle, safe and effective treatment that is used by dermatologists worldwide. Part One of HairSanity contains hydrocortisone acetate.
Consistent with the Company's commitment to provide skin care for the scalp, the active ingredient in Part Two, salicylic acid, is also proven to be safe and effective for the control of dandruff. Some of the finest spas in the world offer exfoliant treatments with salicylic acid to provide smoother, younger looking and more radiant skin.
The performance of the system with respect to efficacy related to scalp issues is excellent. In a recent study of 704 users, 9 out of ten people who used HairSanity found this One- Two punch effective in addressing the symptoms of itching, flaking and irritated scalp... but the scalp was just part of Dr. Kazin's mission—of critical importance was to simultaneously provide, smooth, soft, beautiful, manageable and lustrous hair.
Dr. Kazin worked with the development team to create a proprietary mix of ingredients including nutrients, anti-oxidants, proteins, and moisturizers. The HairSanity products contain extracts of the alp rose, oat kernel, green tea, willow bark and sea whip (from a Caribbean reef), vitamins B5, B6 and B12... but key to getting the wholesome nutrients and moisturizers into the hair strand is a delivery system that uses all natural ingredients to break down the components into micro particles that penetrate the hair strand to help make the hair softer, more manageable, healthy looking and lustrous. This delivery system is so unique that it is the subject of 41 US and international patents pending.
The HairSanity products are selenium free, zinc pyrithione free, paraben free and sulfate free and unlike many sulfate free shampoos, HairSanity delivers luxurious suds that do a great job of cleaning your hair, but without harsh surfactants. Harsh surfactants can be tough on color and on other hair treatments, like perms or keratin treatments. HairSanity users overwhelmingly prefer HairSanity for longer lasting color and other treatments, like keratin.
HairSanity is not a supermarket or drug store product line. The active ingredient in Part One alone costs about 30 times as much per ounce as the active ingredient in most store bought anti-dandruff shampoos.
