Hair Follicles exist throughout our skin, with the exception of lips, palms and soles. Each living follicle gives rise to a single hair. Hair follicles originate from the basal area of the epidermis and extend into the dermis during times of active growth. Each strand of hair grows from a follicle rooted in our skin's subcutaneous tissue.
At the bottom of each hair follicle lies a structure called the papilla, which is nourished by tiny blood vessels. The activity of papilla and the germinative cells of the bottom of the hair bulb condition the growth of hairs. Proteins, vitamins and minerals are carried to the papilla for hair growth by tiny blood vessels.
The bio-enzymatic plant compounds contained in EPISIVA work by blocking the proteins, vitamins and minerals, which feed the papilla. When EPISIVA is allowed to reach the bottom of hair bulb in enough concentration and duration, it blocks proteins and minerals nourishing the papilla and has a genuine slowing-down role on hair growth.
