Unwanted hair growth is a condition that affects millions of people (the medical term: hirsutism. It can occur in both men and women without discrimination and is caused by follicles that are overly sensitive to male hormones (called androgens). It can also be caused by abnormally high levels of these hormones. Whatever the cause may be, the effect on one's self-esteem is usually very negative.

Lauryl Isoquinolinium Bromide is a hair growth delayer that bases its action on the selective destruction of the germinative cells of hair follicles. Unlike other ingredients, which work in an abrasive way, destroying skin cells and hair cells alike, this ingredient performs a targeted attack focused exclusively on the germinative hair follicle cells.
