Frequently Asked Questions
Studies have been done to understand the mechanism of Polygonum multiflorum’s action on hair growth. Polygonum multiflorum extract works during the telogen to the anagen transition phase of hair growth. According to some more science, Polygonum multiflorum extract promoted hair growth by inducing the resting growth cells into the anagen phase.
The PURC Polygonum Shampoo bar contains Polygonum Multiflorum – for reversing grey hair back to your original hair color.
From research done by The Gene Research U.S., it is proven that Polygonum has the ability to reactivate Melanocytes – pigment-producing cells in hair follicles. It responds to the root cause of the hair-greying problem instead of plainly masking it.
He Shou Wu (Fo-Ti) or Polygonum Multiflorum literally means “His Dark Hair” in Chinese. Polygonum is used in Chinese and Western medicine for its health and notably the promotion of hair growth and hair darkening effects. Our Polygonum Multiflorum shampoo bar is especially useful for you if you dye your hair. You should stop masking grey hair with dyes. Up to 25 different ingredients in common hair dyes can cause harmful skin effects and further lighten your hair color.
People report results within 4 weeks of using our Polygonum Shampoo. We recommend you to get a few bars of our shampoo and completely switch to it for 1-2 months for best results. Our shampoo bar is infused with Polygonum extract and will slowly darken your hair after a few applications.
Water, sea salt, glycerine, butyrospermum parkii (shea butter oil)*, polygonum multiflorum, panax ginseng root extract, olea europaea (european olive). Our shampoo bars are packed with ingredients such as essential oils to nourish and cleanse your hair. Our bars are free from silicone and any other harmful ingredients.
Starting 2012, PURC began removing palm oil from its Bars, and has now started educating customers about the environmental degradation caused by the current cultivation of oil palm crops, encouraging customers to ‘wash their hands off palm oil’.
In traditional medicine, Polygonum Multiflorum is not associated with any serious or lasting ill-effects. But some modern research suggests that long-term oral consumption can cause you problems. It’s a great idea to try the efficacy of Polygonum externally before planning of consuming it. The best way to minimize side-effects is using this herb externally. Our Polygonum Shampoo Bar can help you get the benefits and negate all the side-effects of consuming Polygonum.
All PURC Shampoo bars are made of organic ingredients and zero artificial chemicals or surfactants. Polygonum Shampoo Bars are mainly composed of raw materials of natural Chinese medicine named Polygonum Multiflorum and Panax Ginseng. They, therefore, do not contain any trace of chemicals and/or synthetics likely to harm your hair or your skin. In addition, our minimal plastic use protects our environment.
We design our soaps with the utmost respect for your skin. Our shampoo-bar production method comes from an ancestral method, called ‘cold saponification’. It is the combination of oils and sodium hydroxide and pure spring water that creates the magic of transforming these raw ingredients that otherwise would not be capable of cleaning your hair or anything else, into our amazing shampoo bars. This creates an emulsion, which hardens a little (like mayonnaise). At that moment, we add the last ingredients (clays, milk, virgin oils, essential oils, etc). We then put this composition in molds, give them the bar shape, and then let them “mature” for 24 hours. These loaves are then stripped of excess shampoo by cutting. A drying process of about 4 weeks is then required to allow the soda to perform its action. Once the process is complete, there is no more oil or soda, but only an excellent shampoo bar full of essential properties for your hair.
Almost all “Liquid” shampoos are made from detergents such as Parabens and DEA. They strip all the natural oils from your hair and scalp. You then need to use a conditioner in order to even get a comb through your hair.
PURC shampoo bars do not require a conditioner as it doesn’t strip all the natural oils. It only removes the excess oils, dirt, and grime while leaving some of your natural oils intact to keep your skin and scalp healthy and vibrant. This is what nature intended.
We use all-natural products, plant and plant extracts to create ecological and 100% biodegradable soaps. The bases are the only vegetable, they are all pure and non-toxic to the environment. We process these raw materials with the utmost care.
PURC shampoo bars are designed to eliminate dirt and oily build-ups, leaving you with shiny, clean hair. They’re formulated for all hair types and work just as effectively as liquid shampoos in plastic bottles.
Wet your hair, rub the shampoo bar between your wet hands to create a nice lather, using your fingers as a comb, smooth the lather along with your hair. Gently massage it into the scalp and hair, as you would with a bottled shampoo. Finally, rinse. It is also perfect as a complete body soap.
One of these common names describes how it works as a medicine for hair: he shou wu (Mr. He with black hair). The myth is that of a single middle-aged alcoholic who found love and redemption through this Polygonum. It’s said that the remedy was named due to the transformational, youth-restoring effects it had on “Mr. He” when he discovered the herb. It’s also referred to as Chinese knotweed and known as ‘Shou Wu’ and ‘Fo-Ti’ in the USA.
We at PURC Organics have worked together with Chemists and Herbalists from the Traditional Chinese Medicine University in Nanjing to formulate and extract the benefits of Fo-Ti in our Shampoo Bars. Combining the Eastern and Western sciences, we have produced our range of Organic and Natural Polygonum range of hair growth products. Our Polygonum Multiflorum shampoo bar is 100 % organic and contains zero harsh chemicals, silicone or additives. We assure our customers that the constant usage of our Polygonum Shampoo Bar will get you tremendous benefits.
★ IDEAL FOR TRAVEL – Shampoo soap bars have been popular among seasoned travelers for years since they are completely airport checkpoint friendly and don’t take up space in your luggage. It is therefore the perfect all-in-1 travel shampoo.
★ ECO-FRIENDLY – PURC shampoo bars are vegan, cruelty-free and color-safe! 100% great hair days, no compromises. Not tested on animals. Our shampoo bars are also much better for the environment than traditional plastic shampoo bottles. Leave behind plastic shampoo bottles and embrace the #zerowaste lifestyle with shampoo bars.
★ SOFT ALL THE WAY – Pure shampoo bars contain no harsh detergents that strip hair of protective oils and don’t weigh down hair. This is a natural alternative for psoriasis or dandruff shampoo. Our shampoo bars are designed to stand up to hard water and still help you achieve your hair goals. They are very lightly scented.
Our bars typically provide 50-75 washes (with proper care and storage), which replaces two to three 16 oz bottles of traditional liquid shampoo! This depends on how often you shampoo, how well you store the shampoo bar, and the amount you need per shower. We advise you to store the shampoo bar somewhere dry because when it stays moist it will not keep its shape and will get soft – you will use it up a lot faster in that case. You can store the shampoo bar in a storage tin or a soap case with drainage.
