Hair thinning and loss for both men and women happen for different reasons depending on the individual; some feel their fate is out of their hands as they see generations of family members before them develop shiny heads and spots while others take out the stress of the day on their scalps. Regardless, damage to hair structure is a common underlying cause.

New from Masquelier’s USA is Soléderm After Sun Solution, which incorporates Masquelier’s OPCs to help combat the visible signs of sun damage and premature skin aging after daily, sensible sun exposure.
