Palmatine is a member of the proto-berberine series. Palmatine is effective because of its ability to inhibit microorganism multiplication.
Palmatine thus exerts its effect on rapidly-dividing cells witfout exerting a cytotoxic effect.
The mode of action of palmatine, via inhibition of mithosis, makes it a valuable active substance with respect to slowing the mitosis rate of the keratinocytes of the hair bulb, the rapidly proliferating cells which gives rise to hair growth.
This element is met in many biological liquids and is found in low concertation at the surface of the epidermis.
Urea helps the denaturation of (cellular) proteins and through it, decreases their functionality.
It is an beta-hydroxyl, aromatic acid whose name comes from the fact that it was orginally obtanined from bark. (Salix Alba) In local applications, it has a slight aseptising action, and makes easier the dissolution and hence the denaturation of keratins.
