Project Description

Hi, my name's Paul and I'm currently starting a cosmetic product business that will stimulate hair growth on the hair follicles on men's faces.

Because the trends of beards are in, and are definitely here to stay, many men have been looking at dozens of options on how to grow a beard. Some men can grow full beards, while others are jealous and can only grow a few strands of hairs. The demand is high and men are resulting in beard transplants and applications of many different oils on their face and intake of "beard pills" which all have very insignificant effects.

Minoxidil (Rogaine) is a well known treatment that works for men and women for hair growth. Men even apply this to their face for a long period of time and the results come...very slowly. This is the most effective treatment so far for beard growth. However the application of this chemical on the face is not encourage by the FDA and unwanted side effects can be the result of this. Due to this, I want to create an alternate safer solution that will show great effects on hair growth if applied to the face.

After investigating online, I've learned that procyanidin b-2, from extracted apples, has very promising hair growth agents. There have been multiple studies and the results were even more promising than minoxidil (although the study did not show the concentration of the minoxidil compared).

With this, I'd like to create a cosmetic product with 5% procyanidin b-2. I can purchase this in powder form online, and I would simply need this powder to be the main active ingredient in the cosmetic product.

I would need someone that has a lot of experience in cosmetic science, chemistry, cosmetology, and biology. They will need to run different trials and come up with the most promising hair growth cosmetic. This may take a while. I can purchase the ingredients, this person would need to create the end product that is both effective and safe.

I would need this person to translate the cosmetic chemistry language into basic English so I can understand the process along the way. Good communication is vital.

I am excited for this idea as I believe it will be a huge success. I hope you share the same ambition and am looking forward to meeting you.

Thank you.
