GREENPLEX® is an innovative 100% plant-derived complex for formulating products designed for treating hair damaged by chemical and mechanical treatments guaranteeing an extraordinary regenerating action.

improved hair strenght

Cyclic fatigue indicates dynamic strength or fatigue behavior.

A higher number of cycles to break indicates a stronger fiber: 8% GREENPLEX® aqueous solution applied to damp high curl type hair significantly increases the mean number of cycles to break by 55.6% compared to the untreated group.


GREENPLEX® treatment reduces combing force and electrostatic effect (-23% and -60% respectively) in damaged hair compared to untreated.

cuticles closure and smoothness improvement

Frictional properties determine how the hair feels to the touch, how it combs and styles, and its manageability.

GREENPLEX® treatment significantly reduces dry friction in damaged hair if left on (-79%) and rinsed off (-75%), claiming smoothness, damage prevention, and repairing action on the hair.

improved hair elasticity

Elasticity is the hair’s ability to stretch and return to its original shape. It could be considered a measure of hair protein and moisture protection.

The elastic modulus measures the fiber’s stiffness: a decrease in the modulus indicates an increase in fiber elasticity. 8% GREENPLEX® aqueous solution applied to heat-damaged hair significantly improves elasticity by 10.3%.

improvement of cuticles scales alignment

To explore in depth the effect of GREENPLEX® treatment, hair has been bleached twice leading to heavily damaged and almost deprived cuticles, with the scales very open and irregular.

FE-SEM images show that GREENPLEX® treatment greatly improves compactness of the scales and adherence to the hair shaft with cuticles less raised and jagged.

GREENPLEX® filming property is highlighted by “drops” covering the hair’s surface.

  • Repairs damaged hair fibers and salt linkages
  • Reduces split ends and draws water to the hair by “swelling” it, improving its tone and making the hair thicker
  • Reduces the electrostatic phenomenon of hair fly-away and conditions the hair, making it softer and shinier, making it easier to comb wet hair and detangle it when dry
