If you want to provide an effective response to the problem of hair loss, it is certainly important to stop it. But it is also necessary to do everything possible to stimulate the growth of new hair.

Two actions go hand in hand in the fight against hair loss: slowing down hair loss and accelerating growth.

So how do you grow hair?

We have devoted several articles to the different factors responsible for hair loss. Now it's time to focus on the active ingredients that promote hair growth.

René Furterer: the hair strengthening specialist

The René Furterer brand has been the leader in the fight against loss of density for many years. It has been the number-one-selling salon product in its field for 17 years.

It's goal: Slowing loss of density and helping strengthen hair.

The active ingredients used by René Furterer to promote hair strength

Today, there are natural and effective solutions to promote hair strength

To develop its anti- loss rituals and dietary supplements, René Furterer relies on five natural ingredients. It offers personalized solutions, adapted to the specific needs of each person.

The effectiveness of these natural active ingredients on hair strength has been widely proven and verified by users.

Lotus Mineral Complex™

Lotus Mineral Complex™

Lotus Mineral Complex™ is a naturally derived active ingredient. It is a combination of magnesium salt and L-PCA. It is used to combat the harmful cellular effects of stress. It preserves the scalp and slows down the loss of hair density due to stress, fatigue, illness…

This makes it particularly effective in the fight against reactive loss of hair density.

Biotrinin: a 360° active ingredient

Biotrinin: a 360° active ingredient

Biotrinin is an active ingredient of natural origin. It is obtained by aqueous extraction of the aerial parts of watercress (Nasturtium officinal) and nasturtium (Trapaeolum majus).

Biotrinin was chosen by René Furterer for its ability to act at each key stage in the hair's life cycle* . It helps to slow down progressive loss of hair density. 

It acts in three ways:

  • it activates the signal necessary for hair growth at the birth stage*
  • it makes hair visibly more dense*
  • it extends the maturity stage to delay the transition of the hair into the phase in which it weakens and preserves the hair capital*

The natural extract of pfaffia

The natural extract of pfaffia

Native to the Amazon, pfaffia is probably the region’s most famous plant. “Brazilian ginseng” strengthens the internal organs while calming the nervous system and suppressing anxiety.

René Furterer uses its remarkable revitalizing properties in all its anti- loss of density products. When applied by massaging it into the scalp, it protects and revitalizes. The supply of nutrients and energy to the hair roots necessary for optimal hair strength is thus maximized.

In addition to its extraordinary properties, this active ingredient* also comes from a Fair For Life-certified fair trade supply chain. René Furterer is committed to improving the standard of living of small producers in the state of Paraná in Brazil. It should be noted that they are all certified organic.

In addition to its social commitment, René Furterer also contributes to the fight against local deforestation.

Hydrolysed curbicia extract*

Hydrolysed curbicia extract*

Curbicia is obtained by hydrolysis of pumpkin seeds, an exclusive process patented by René Furterer Laboratories.

This extract inhibits the expression of α-reductase, the enzyme responsible for the hormonal imbalance that triggers loss of density.

It also eliminates the excess of sebum that causes hair asphyxiation.

The hair bulbs are no longer hindered. Hair is healthy and strong. Hair is revitalized. The hair fibres are stronger.

It is the ideal companion in the fight against progressive loss of density.

Essential oils: our best allies against hair loss

Essential oils: our best allies against hair loss

René Furterer was one of the first to introduce essential oils into hair care products. The pure key ingredients extracted from orange, rosemary, lavender and lemon offer immense therapeutic properties.

ATP, an innovative active ingredient

ATP, or adenosine triphosphate, is an active ingredient that is naturally produced by the body. It is an essential source of energy, as it is the only " fuel " that the cells can directly use.

René Furterer research has revealed the incredible properties of ATP on the cells of the follicular papilla.

It allows the hair to grow again quickly:

1. in progressive hair loss by acting as an early boost of energy

2. in reactionary hair loss by inducing the anagen phase.

Highly effective for all types of loss of density, this active ingredient* is present in the two René Furterer anti- loss of density care products.

Effective natural treatments to boost hair growth

Nowadays, the interest in natural products is growing. And it’s easy to see why!

More and more, we see the effects that the environment has on us every day. Urban and industrial pollution, for example, the harmful effects of the sun, stress, an inadequate diet, etc.

We have also been witness to the risks of harmful ingredients in both food and cosmetics.

Moreover, there is a real need today to protect oneself from this environment which can seem quite hostile. Chemical treatments are increasingly being abandoned in favour of natural treatments.

René Furterer realized very early on the benefits of the resources that Mother Nature gives us. For this reason, only natural anti-loss of density ingredients are selected for their powerful and beneficial effects on hair growth. Plant extracts, vegetable oils, essential oils… they have all been thoroughly studied by Laboratoires René Furterer.

Natural products are very interesting. First of all, they are free of chemicals that could harm both skin and hair. Moreover, their performance makes them the perfect solution to the problem of loss of hair density.


Two plants combine their actions to fight against progressive loss of hair density

We have talked about biotrinin, an exceptional active ingredient that fights against progressive loss of density caused by genetics or hormonal disorders.

But how could one imagine that its scientific name actually hides two plants behind it, plants that are well known to all: watercress (Nasturtium officinale) and nasturtium (Trapaeolum majus)?

René Furterer's expertise has led him to work in synergy with these two anti-hair loss powerhouses. Together, they act at each key stage of the hair's life cycle. They first activate the signal necessary for hair growth and then delay its transition to the fall phase. The hair is visibly denser once again.

In order to respect their properties and the user, they were extracted using a completely natural method: no solvents, only water and vegetable glycerine which is filtered to retain only the essential ingredients.

The secret of this exclusive duo in the fight against hair loss? Naturalness and simplicity.
