Quebec, March 15, 2011 - Unipex, a world leader in the manufacturing and marketing of innovative active ingredients for the cosmetics and personal care industry, will unveil its latest release: CapixylTM, at the in-cosmetics trade show at the end of March 2011.

CapixylTM, a proven alternative to address hair loss

CapixylTM is a biomimetic peptide combined with a red clover extract. Based on the combined and synergistic action of its two ingredients, CapixylTM targets directly three contributing factors in hair loss. It prevents hair miniaturization, favors a better hair anchoring, and reduces inflammation, an aggravating factor in hair loss. CapixylTM is a clinically proven alternative to address hair loss and boost hair growth! Clinical tests demonstrate its effectiveness in increasing the hair density by 46% in addition to being more effective on hair growth than the reference product on the market and without causing side effects.

A new niche for Unipex

"Capixyl TM is a first for us in the field of hair treatment. It is for Unipex the result of several years' of work carried out jointly with The Institut Européen de Biologie cellulaire (IEB), our research facility specialized in the development of biomimetic peptides." states Antonio Lara, General Manager of Unipex Innovations. Unipex is once again proving its vitality and leadership in the field of biomimetic peptides for cosmetic use. Like all other Unipex products, CapixylTM offers an innovative mechanism of action and is manufactured to meet the highest quality and safety standards.
