INTEGRATING ANCIENT HERBAL MEDICINE WITH MODERN SCIENCE, MEDICINE AND TECHNOLOGY IN HAIR, SKIN AND NAIL TREATMENTS
Universal Biologics is a leading edge, biotech, cosmeceutical company dedicated to developing and producing the highest quality, natural botanical health, wellness and beauty products for hair, skin and nails. Our goals are to address the concerns of the scientific and medical communities as well as the consumers regarding alternative natural botanical treatments for hair, skin and nails by developing ethically challenged and proven products utilizing the latest research and technology and applying scientific standardization. We take pride in the fact that we present our research studies and products in ethical forums such as the American Academy of Dermatology Annual Conference, the Annual Hawaii Dermatology Seminar, and the Society of Cosmetic Chemists.
Founded in 1989, Universal Biologics began its search for dermatological solutions by developing HairPrime, a patented, natural herbal treatment for thinning hair and hair loss (i.e male pattern baldness or androgenetic alopecia). HairPrime is promoted as a thinning hair program that is distinguished from finasteride (Propecia) and minoxidil (Rogaine) as it is cited as a natural herbal preparation having 5-alpha reductase (DHT) inhibition properties and responsibly claims to establish a healthier environment for hair to grow, rather than claiming that it grows hair. None of these products have proven to grow hair where there are no hair follicles, e.g. palms of hands and bottoms of feet. Thus, we consider our claim to be more accurate and ethical, but most important more natural. HairPrime has been proven effective in clinical tests with the results presented to the American Academy of Dermatology and published in the Journal of Dermatological Treatment (September, 1996). The unique finding in the published study is the significant "conversion" of baby-fine vellus hair to mature, melanized (color pigmented) terminal/non-vellus hair indicating the ability to reverse the shortened hair growth cycle and premature hair loss allowing hair to grow thicker and longer.
Universal Biologics continues its effort in developing natural botanical solutions in dermatology with its presentation of:
NailPrime, a natural herbal treatment for dry, brittle and weak nails and cuticles, has been proven to improve the strength and flexibility of nails without the use of plasticizers, polymers and formaldehyde. Combining panthenol, an ingredient which has been proven to enhance penetration and flexibility, with natural healing herbs has been developed to improve the health of nails and cuticles to make them healthier, thus stronger. NailPrime Nail Treatment is unique in that it penetrates nail polish, gels and silk wraps, thus allowing daily moisturizing applications to nails and cuticles.
Line D skin care treatment line is developed to support the skin's natural ability to rebuild itself. Line D incorporates the latest research and technology in skin science for the treatment of aging skin. Anti-aging and anti-wrinkling treatments are achieved by integrating healing herbal extracts with the scientific researched application and delivery of efficacious combinations and levels of ingredients (including molecular oxygen, beta glucan, Co Q10 [coenzyme Q10 or ubiquinone], antioxidants such as pure tocopherol or vitamin E, vitamin C, vitamin A, alpha lipoic acid, green tea, superoxide dismutase, glycoproteins, etc.) that have been scientifically proven to contribute to skin cell metabolism, matrix and repair.
