Healthy hair comes from a healthy scalp. Marine Bio-Active Shampoo increases the strength, function and resiliency of the scalp and follicles. It reduces excess sebum and amplifies collagen synthesis significantly, which can reverse the damage and impacts of aging. Marine Bio-Active Shampoo is made from cultured cells of Wakame, an edible marine algae harvested from the pure, cold Icelandic waters of the North Atlantic. Fermentation activates the phenolic compounds, which contain powerful anti-oxidants and soothe inflammation. Wakame is a potent nutrient containing potassium, silicon, and calcium, and vitamins A, B, C, D and E. It is highly emollient and will smooth the hair shaft, reduce frizz and increase radiance. For all types of hair.
Hairprint uses fewer ingredients but they also use more of them! Shampoo labels may list many botanical ingredients and oils, but how much is actually in the product? In many cases, almost none! One-tenth of one percent is not unusual as the workers who make these shampoos call it “fairy dust.” If your hair is 12 inches long, one tenth of one percent of a dab of shampoo means you are putting on 3/1000th of an ounce on 25 sq. ft. of hair surface. It is important to have enough of an ingredient to actually make a difference, which is why Hairprint measures and adds all of their plant ingredient formulations in percentages, not fractions of a percentage.

You may notice that some of Hairprint's ingredients are fermented. Many plant ingredients are not bio-available to the skin cells unless they are broken down by lactobacillus or other bacteria. Using fermentation tanks to make ingredients effective is more expensive, but it is worth it.
Hairprint uses organic ingredients but do not list them on their labels as organic. The reason they do this is because unlike the food industry, the organizations that certify cosmetic ingredients as being organic are not regulated or certified. Until there are reliably enforced standards, they will err on the side of caution in what they claim.
