Nanogen® Nanofibers

Country of Origin



Nanofibers are a unique formulation of pure keratin that have been precision cut by laser to microscopic dimensions. After cutting, the fibers are dyed and are coated to enhance the retention of electrostatic charge. The dried fibers are then hygienically packed into containers, which are constructed from a sophisticated polymer that stimulates static charging of the fibers whenever the container is moved. Nanogen is applied quickly and without mess by simply shaking the container over the thinning area, releasing thousands of the microscopic colour-matched hair fibers, which intertwine with, and branch off the real hairs.
