About ReGen Factor

 

ReGen Factor is an Australian Fibroblast Growth Factor cosmetics and drug development company. 

Our current products are PepFactor Skin and PepFactor Scalp. PepFactor Scalp is currently undergoing cosmetic trials for the treatment of Androgynous Alopecia in both men and women, with the same guidelines as FDA clinical drug trials.

Growth factors are involved in the regulation of hair morphogenesis and cycle hair growth. Current studies seek to investigate the hair growth promoting activities of basic fibroblast growth factor (FGF-2), and the mechanism of action. Independent research has shown that FGFs promote hair growth by inducing the anagen phase in telogenic C57BL/6 mice. Specifically, the histomorphometric analysis data indicates that topical application of FGFs induced an earlier anagen phase and prolonged the mature anagen phase, in contrast to the control group.

 

Moreover, the immunohistochemical analysis reveals earlier induction of β-catenin and Sonic hedgehog (Shh) in hair follicles of the FGFs-treated group. These results suggest that FGFs promote hair growth by inducing the anagen phase in resting hair follicles and might be a potential hair growth-promoting agent.

To date more tan 10 000 PepFactor treatments have been conducted and PepFactor Scalp appears to work across all age, sex and race groups with a reported success rate in excess of 92%.

Our ultimate aim is to prove PepFactor Scalp as a affective and safe treatment for Androgynous Alopecia in both men and women.
