What is Anagain™ Hair Revitalising Shampoo Bontress®
The main ingredient of the Bontress Shampoo manufactured by the reputable Glenmark Pharmaceuticals is a Pea (Pisum sativum) is a vegetable with pod fruits. Sprouts from organic peas were selected as a source of AnaGain™ due to their being rich in phytonutrients. These “health-promoting phytochemicals” protect the plant from disease, damage, pathogens, extreme UV, pollutants and help to defend it against herbivores. In addition, many of these phytochemicals are known to exert positive effects on human health. Sprouts are the plant material with the highest level of phytonutrients.
AnaGain™ is used for stimulating hair growth and fighting hair loss. Based on sprouts of organic pea, AnaGain™ reduces hair loss by inducing dermal papilla cells to reactivate hair growth. AnaGain™ was shown, thanks to DNA microarray analysis of plucked hair follicles, to activate, in the dermal papilla, specific signal molecules which are required to initiate the growth of a new hair. By reactivating hair growth, AnaGain™ helps the hairs to keep their original density and thickness.
AnaGain™, which is based on organic pea sprouts stimulates specific signal molecules in the dermal papilla required to reactivate hair growth. Thanks to its composition, AnaGain™ successfully offers a sustainable and novel approach to fight hair loss. In a clinical study involving AnaGain™, it was shown that the anagen: telogen coefficient (proportion of active hair follicles to degenerating ones) could be improved from 4 to 7.2 corresponding to a 78% increase in hair growth in just 3 months. AnaGain™ is thus a natural and sustainable contributor to fuller and thicker hair.
Bontress Hair Revitalising Shampoo is an Anagain enriched shampoo which is used as a supportive therapy to control hair loss. Hair loss, also known as alopecia or baldness, refers to a loss of hair from the head or body. Baldness can refer to general hair loss or male pattern hair loss. Hair loss and hypotrichosis have many causes including androgenetic alopecia, fungal infection, trauma (e.g., due to (trichotillomania ), radiotherapy, chemotherapy, nutritional deficiencies (e.g., iron deficiency ), and autoimmune diseases (e.g., alopecia areata). Bontress Shampoo re-enforces and strengthens hair fibers, maintains the protein balance in the hair, prolongs the life cycle of the hair, maintains original density thickness, stimulates and promotes hair growth, energizes the hair roots, strengthens the hair and makes it more manageable, has Anti-inflammatory action, reduces sebum secretion.

AnaGain™ is based on Organic Pea Sprouts. The pea (Pisum sativum) is a vegetable with pod fruits. Each pod contains several peas that are rich in proteins, starch, and fibers.
Sprouts from organic pea were selected as a source of AnaGain™ because of their richness in phytonutrients. These “health-promoting phytochemicals” protect the plant from disease, damage, pathogens, extreme UV, pollutants and help to defend it against herbivores. Besides, many of these phytochemicals are known to exert beneficial effects on human health. Phytonutrients are highly abundant in sprouts because at this stage plants are not yet lignified and thus, especially vulnerable. This is why sprouts are the plant material with the highest level of phytonutrients.
An Environmentally-Friendly Process. Pea sprouts are produced indoors without soil.
- Organic pea seeds are first soaked in water then transferred to rotating containers that provide drainage, light, aeration, and agitation.
- After a few days of incubation in the containers, the sprouts are harvested and then extracted with water and purified.
This technique has many advantages:
- availability of plant material independent of the season, soil conditions and market demand
- plant material completely free of environmental pollutants and pesticides
- low water requirements
AnaGain™ Activates the Dermal Papilla to Induce Hair Growth. AnaGain™ was shown, thanks to the DNA microarray technique conducted on plucked hair follicles, to stimulate, in the DP, specific signaling molecules which are required to initiate the growth of a new hair:
- Noggin, a protein that shortens the telogen phase
- FGF-7, fibroblast growth factor-7, which promotes the proliferation activity of the matrix keratinocytes to start a new anagen phase.
These results were confirmed with the phototrichogram technique: After three months’ treatment, AnaGain™ was found to reduce hair loss and to increase hair vitality: the density of anagen hair was increased whereas the density of telogen hair was strongly reduced.
How to use Anagain™ Hair Revitalising Shampoo Bontress®
- Wet the hair as much as possible for at least 30 seconds
- Apply and massage the shampoo from roots till the tips
