Testimonials from Clients

I have been using only Skin Biology for 10 years. I am now 58. I use your hair products and not one grey hair at this stage. I am so grateful for your research and your integrity in your product.

SC, Australia

I just used the folligen shampoo and conditioner for the first time after ordering the 2 oz bottles to try. Since my son was born 3 years ago, my hair has not been the same! I lost so much hair and the overall health and texture seemed permanently diminished.

All I can say about the folligen is WOW!!! My hair hasn't looked this full, shiny, and bouncy since I was a teenager. It dried in half the time and is silky smooth (I have curls that I often blow dry straight). I didn't even have to use any other products...just the shampoo, conditioner, and a touch of hair oil to style. I'm impressed!


Thank you for creating the best products I have ever tried in 40 yrs. I am a make-up artist and have tried most of the high end products from around the world and I can honestly say nothing performs as well as your products.

I'm 57 yrs old and before I started using your products my face looked tired, dull, with loose facial skin . The lines around my eyes looked crepey and my neck started to look like a turkeys neck - not attractive! My baby fine short dry hair never grew as the ends would break. Eeeek, I hated looking in the mirror!

My friends recommended your products and after their rave reviews I took the plunge! :-)

My first order was 5 August 2012 and I bought the P&R Classic, Exfol, Two Timing Tightener and the Super GHK. For my hair I bought Folligen Therapy, Shampoo and Conditioner.

I used the P&R Classic on my face in the morning, Super GHK around my eyes followed by Two Timing Tightener all over.

Evening after cleansing I used Exfol and Squalane (this is an oil I have used for years and had this oil on hand).

I have now been using all of the above products for 8 months and can honestly say I'm looking fabulous! My skin looks hydrated, brighter, plumper and firmer. My hair is softer, looks fuller and doesnt break off at the ends. It's amazing! My friends have all commented that I look younger and they're right. ;-)

I'm truly grateful for all your hard work Dr. Pickart and please know I am a very satisfied customer.


A little goes a long way as I used less than half bottle in a month... I would advise anyone with any hair or skin problems to try these products."


I recently went in for a haircut... [My stylist] was besides himself because my hair had so much body and shine. He said that whatever I'm doing, I'm doing it right. I've been using Folligen Shampoo and Conditioner for just a few months now. In fact, I'm only half way down my first bottle of shampoo. When I shower, I shampoo my hair first then mix a few drops of Emu Oil-S for Hair into a nickle sized amount of conditioner before working into my hair. I leave the product in while I shower and then rinse off before getting out... Thank you Dr. Pickart and Skin Biology.

Hair Concerns: WOMEN

For women, the causes of hair loss and thinning typically center around growth problems incurred due to chemical damage (e.g. perms, coloring dyes, relaxers); heat damage (from high heat settings on blow dryer and/or frequent use of flat-irons); use of inferior styling products (e.g. overuse of shampoos that strip the hair of its protective oils/proteins, or use of poor conditioners that add little if any replenishing factors to damaged hair); or hair styling techniques that stress weak hair (e.g. tight buns or pony-tails, overcutting, etc).

Eyebrow and eyelash loss may stem from the chemical salts and dyes used in cosmetics which, in time, often produce severe thinning. See:

Psychological stress and hormonal shifts (such as menopausal changes or stopping the use of birth control pills) can also result in thinning and hair loss.

How can a woman combat and possibly reverse these effects?

LONG HAIR IS STRONGER HAIR - Look at old photographs of families in the 1800s. You'll see that many women, even past the age of 60, still had long healthy hair! Of course, this was before the era of popular modern hair care techniques that use intense-heat styling and a plethora of chemicals.

In fact even today, in economically stressed areas around the world, most mature women still have long, healthier hair. So what is their secret?

Simple techniques such as cleansing hair properly, avoiding over-washing, partaking of a hair-healthy diet, and keeping the hair long (which often times results in physically stronger, more resilient hair!) is likely the key.

With this in mind, Dr. Loren Pickart designed Folligen (a non-drug scalp topical) to boost the health of your hair starting at the follicle itself.

Folligen can be used alone, or in combination with Emu Oil for Hair (or with Minoxidil).

If a woman has long hair, it is a glory unto her.

Our Recommendations:

Start with Copper Peptides:
Folligen Therapy Cream, Folligen Therapy Spray,
Hair Signals Solution or Hair Signals Cream:

We recommend applying Folligen or Hair Signals
once every other day as a light coating on the scalp.
Apply before bedtime. Massage in.


Emu Oil - Lock in Moisture!

Many of our customers report that the combination of Folligen and Emu Oil often help revitalize the appearance of their hair*.

How does emu oil work? First of all, emu oil is a biological oil that can effectively moisturize the scalp from root to tip. Most clients use it as a light scalp oil. But Emu Oil can be applied very lightly on the tips of your hair to stave off split ends and hydrate a dry, frizzy appearance.

A few drops of Emu Oil can also be added to deep conditioning treatments.

For those who prefer a plant-based scalp oil, we recommend Squalane Lipid Replenisher.






How to Use Minoxidil (2%)

As the only topical approved for hair growth by the FDA, some have also decided to add Minoxidil to their scalp care regimen.

Most women use the 2% concentration. Keep in mind that minoxidil can at times result in mild scalp irritation. Use only as directed. Start with every other day applications (or even 2-3 times a week). Test on a small area first. If irritation occurs, stop Minoxidil and use only Folligen until your scalp has calmed.

Others have tried retinoic acid on the scalp (ranging between 0.01 to 0.05%). But this may also irritate the scalp. Clients must always do their due diligence by first thoroughly researching any method they decide to use. Test any new product on a small area first. And use all scalp products lightly.

Retinoic acid (Retin-A) may help produce thicker hair shafts when used with minoxidil. This combination appears to be one of the better current approaches to hair rejuvenation. However, the major drawback is often strong scalp irritation. Sometimes, the combination of minoxidil and retinoic acid causes breaks in the skin barrier.

Folligen and/or Emu Oil, when used lightly, seem to greatly reduce this irritation.

Addition of estrogen or other DHT blockers may help in some cases.



Sandro Botticelli - Portrait of a young woman

Some have decided to also research non-drug, natural DHT blockers (which include saw palmetto oil, pygeum and nettle root extract, isoflavones genistein and daidzein, and ginkgo biloba).

Be Careful of Intense Exercise Training

In women, extreme high-intensity exercise tends to a reduction in estrogen and may raise testosterone. In extreme cases, this can lead to cessation of the menstrual cycle and more brittle bones.

While of course there are many positive aspects of exercise training, the effect of intense exercise on the hair should be kept in mind since it can increase the rate of shedding and hair loss.

Sudden Hormonal Shifts

Issues with hair loss or thinning can arise after giving birth or after discontinuation of oral contraceptives (birth control pills). In these cases, brief therapy with hair stimulators can usually restore hair to its previous condition. Consult your physician for personalized information.

Blonde hair (especially if it is color-treated which naturally makes the hair more porous) may pick up a green tint if copper peptides are overused. The effect is similar to the greenish-tint that can happen to very blonde hair after spending time in chlorinated swimming pools. The green/blue-ish tint is temporary and can be removed with a solution of 1 part of lemon juice to 4 parts of water.

OR ----to avoid potential temporary coloring, those with blonde hair can always use Folligen for Blondes which leaves no color on the hair at all.


You can apply Emu Oil S Lipid Replenisher after a light application of your copper peptide topical to enhance penetration and help moisturize dry scalp. Emu Oil can also be applied lightly on the scalp to help split ends and breakage.


Research whether light use of 2% Minoxidil may be worth adding to your personal haircare regimen. If you decide to use Minoxidil (or Rogaine) ALWAYS use Folligen along with it (either alternating with every other day applications or applying Folligen after the Minoxidil). Discontinue minoxidil if you experience scalp irritation. Always test on a small area first.


Typical results take approximately 4-6 weeks of consistent use to start to notice the beginnings of positive changes in hair appearance. Be sure to use the product consistently during this time period*.
