Hop extract is a great hair cosmetic. It is recommended for dandruff, itchy scalp and excessively oily hair because hops regulate the secretion of sebum. Hops also strengthen the hair and prevents hair loss. Ideal for premature baldness, they hormonally stimulate weakened hair growth.
Hop shampoos and rinses leave a pleasant aroma on the hair and make the hair soft, bouncy, more elastic and fresh for longer.
Hops exhibit antibacterial and antifungal properties, and are often used for the care of seborrheic and acne-prone skin because lupulin and xanthohumol (hops’ active ingredients) are bactericidal. Hops soothe irritations and inflammations of the skin, are suitable for sensitive skin and stubborn wounds.
Phytohormones contained in the hop extract stimulate the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, which ensures proper skin hydration, boosting its tension and elasticity, and improving its color. Hops prevent skin aging, ensuring a beautiful, youthful appearance. They regenerate and rejuvenate the skin, smoothe wrinkles and restore the skin’s firmness.
