Indication: Hops Extract is rich in flavonoids, essential oils, bitter principles and other active ingredients. It has an astringent and anti-seborrhoeic action, it tones the scalp and provides vitality, it regulates dandruff and slows hair loss. These properties are due to the fact that hops extract has an anti-androgen activity. Therefore, it is used to counteract overly-high androgen levels, in androgenic alopecia formulations and also to regulate the sebum associated with this hormone (acne, seborrhoea, hirsutism). For its part, Hops essential oil is purifying and antiseptic.

Hops have traditionally been used to combat insomnia and anxiety problems. Female hops flowers are a common ingredient used to preserve beer, although with their distilled oils and extracts, they can also flavour foods and non-alcoholic drinks, and scent astringent lotions. A brown-coloured hair tint is also derived from the female flowers.
