CRLAB | Trichology Products
CRLAB, along with university clinics and dermatology institutes, has developed a complete range of Trichology products using a ‘dermo-phytocosmetic’ approach. This means products that are made with the best combination of what both science and nature have to offer, including essential oils, plant stem cell extracts, precious stones and active pharmaceutically derived ingredients.
CRLAB’s products treat various scalp ailments and hair loss conditions using a unique concentration of active principles, including antioxidants and vitamins. You can rest assured that all CRLAB products are free from parabens and SLES (sodium lauryl ether sulfates, a synthetic foaming agent), cruelty-free and dermatologically tested to keep your scalp and hair in delicate balance.
CRLAB’s research focuses primarily on scalp care because it’s only from a healthy scalp that healthy hair can grow. CRLAB believes that hair care includes scalp care, and it is important to target and treat the “root” problems in order to achieve stronger, thicker and healthier hair.
CRLAB Product Lines
The new CRLAB trichology product lines are enhanced versions of products that have been used to treat hair loss and scalp issues in Europe for decades. With essential oils, new and stronger plant extracts (i.e. argan oil, centella asiatica, serenoa repens, moringa), together with pharmacological molecules, and plant stem cells, CRLAB combines advanced scientific research with the most precious elements found in nature.
From the natural world, powerful active principles contained in plant extracts and essential oils (flavonoids, terpenes, aminoacids, vitamins) have been enriched with selected gemstones (a treasure of trace elements and minerals).
From the scientific sphere, specific small molecules that target the origins of some scalp anomalies, as well as plant stem cells, are isolated through particular laboratory processes. The plant stem cells aid in the renewal of skin cells and protect the hair and scalp from bad weather conditions and other stress sources.
Four particular ingredients characterize the new CRLABtrichological lines:
- Plant stem cells
- Essential oils and plant extracts
- Pharmacological small molecules
Purple Line: Anti-Dandruff Rehydrating Treatment
For dry skin, dry dandruff, redness, itching, dehydration & psoriasis
The Purple CRLAB Line has been designed with a dual function: Combats persistent dry dandruff and a flaky scalp, while easing areas of redness, itching and irritated skin.
Purple Line products contain ingredients such as Jojoba, Juniper, and Sweet Orange essential oils, Climbazole and Salicylic acid which increase scalp hydration and have strong soothing and anti-inflammatory properties. Alpha-hydroxy acids enable deep regeneration of the scalp. Hydrolyzed Collagen reconstitutes damaged connective tissue and helps rehydrate the scalp. Active ingredients that reduce the build-up of the yeast Malassezia, one of the most common causes of dandruff. A powerful probiotic principle that rebalances the scalp, encouraging the growth of microorganisms useful for the skin’s metabolism. Rhododendron stem cells, known for their strong regenerative properties.
Note: If you have a problem with hair loss as well as dry dandruff, itching and irritation, it’s important to first heal the scalp before exploring hair regrowth treatments like CRLAB’s Green Hair Loss Prevention Line, or hair replacement solutions like the CNC Prosthetic.
Yellow Line: Sebum Regulating Treatment
Purify your scalp. Free it from excess sebum, putting an end to oily, heavy, greasy-looking hair.
‘Greasy’ looking hair is caused by an excess of sebum produced by glands on the scalp known as the sebaceous glands. A normal amount of Sebum production is important for the nourishment and hydration of the hair; but sometimes hormones, stress or the wrong kind of diet can throw sebum production off balance, causing tan over production of sebum. This can affect the quality of our hair, making it appear heavy, dull, thin and brittle.
CRLAB’s Sebum Regulating Yellow Line has been designed and tested to regulate sebum production and eliminate oily dandruff. The essential oils contained in it have extraordinary astringent qualities and are combined with highly nutritious plant extracts.
It contains ingredients such as Jojoba extract (the makeup of which is very similar to our natural sebum); Avocado extract, which regulates sebaceous production; Laminaria and Larch Mushroom extracts, which have an extraordinary astringent capacity that prevents hair from becoming heavy due to excess sebum; Azelaic Acid, which combines powerful antimicrobial activity with an astringent effect that reduces sebaceous production; Edelweiss stem cells, which have the powerful ability to rebalance sebaceous secretion; as well as Active ingredients that reduce the proliferation of the Malassezia yeast – one of the leading causes of dandruff.
If you suffer from hair loss as well as a particularly oily scalp, it’s important to first heal the scalp, freeing it from sebum plugs before starting our specific anti-hair loss treatment – the CRLAB Hair Loss Prevention Green Line. Clinical tests have shown a reduction or complete elimination of itchy symptoms and unpleasant odor related to seborrheic dermatitis, after 6 weeks of treatment from the Yellow Line.
Green Line: Hair Loss Prevention Treatment
The treatment works to combat hair loss by restoring volume, strength and vitality to hair that’s miniaturized and thinned and is therefore prone to falling out prematurely. To achieve this, our products contain many active ingredients, all naturally derived, such as Serenoa Repens and Apple plant stem cells. Serenoa Repens act at the level of the hair bulb, blocking the action of DHT – a hormone called dihydrotestosterone – which stops the hair bulb from accepting and absorbing nutrients it needs to grow strong, healthy hair. The Green Line is formulated to stimulate hair growth as well as nourish and fortify the hair bulb.
We recommend using the CRLAB Green Line in conjunction with Truly You’s Trichology Treatment Program to ensure maximum results. In our Trichology Program, we first purify the scalp, removing toxins and waste substances; subsequently, we stimulate hair bulb metabolism and microcirculation, bringing natural nourishments and essential elements to the hair and scalp. At this point, we incorporate the CRLAB Green Line Treatment both in-clinic and at-home use.
Daily Care Line: Everyday Treatment for All Skin Types
The CRLAB Daily Care line is formulated with a combination of powerful ingredients, yet it’s still gentle on the skin. So gentle, you can use it for everyday washing. The ingredients, developed from skin care research, have been reformulated to be easily absorbed by the skin, allowing the skin to be gently cleansed of harmful and dehydrating substances.
One of the most common causes of hair loss, dandruff, redness, irritation and oily skin is using the ‘wrong’ type of shampoo. Some drug store shampoos may be too aggressive for your skin and contain ingredients that are not suited to your scalp type, or even exasperate a genetic condition, an already distressed scalp, or a hormonal imbalance. The Daily Care Line is an ideal, daily product line for its gentle and nourishing properties that help to maintain a fine skin-hair balance, and can be used in conjunction with other CRLAB product lines.
3-Step Process (Purple, Yellow, Green Lines)
3-steps to get results. Every product has a role to play.
CRLAB has developed a 3-step philosophy within each of its ranges to effectively solve the most common scalp problems you might be suffering from.
Each Trichological CRALB Line includes:
- Pre-Shampoo: DETOX: EXFOLIATES. REGENERATES. PREPARES. Prepares the scalp for the focused action of the shampoo from the same treatment line. Apply directly on dry skin and massage gently with fingers. Leave in on for at least 10 minutes before washing. Shake before use.
- Shampoo: CLEANSING: DEEP CLEANSING. WITHOUT DAMAGE.
Because of the absence of aggressive surfactants, CRLAB’s shampoos do not produce too much foam. Apply roughly 10 mL of shampoo to 30 mL of water and massage into hair and scalp.
- Lotion/Vial: NOURISHING
After washing hair, spread the product as widely as possible directly on the scalp with still wet hair. Massage gently all over the surface using circular movements. Do not rinse. Shake before use. Alternate the use of the vials with the lotions. Apply two or three times weekly on wet skin without rinsing. Considering the high concentration of active principles and the deep skin absorption capacity, we suggest you apply the product for a period of a month.
