The Studies Behind OASE

Our formulation is backed by scientific research. We have MDs and PhDs on our scientific advisory board and we work with certified nutritionists. Check out our research section below to see the work that went into our formulation. We take our own OASE Hair Vitamins and we're proud to give it to our family members too.

Vitamin A — 400 μg (50% NRV*)

Vitamin A is one of the most important and controversial vitamins for hair health. The reason for the controversy surrounding this vitamin is that while healthy amounts can stimulate hair growth, large doses of vitamin A can cause scalp oil issues that can cause you to shed hair.

Vitamin B6 — 1,4 mg (100% NRV*)
Vitamin B6, sometimes called pyridoxine, is important in hemoglobin production, or the transport of oxygen in our blood. Also, like the other B vitamins, it plays a role in converting carbohydrates and protein into energy. Vitamin B6 is found in eggs, milk, peanuts, pork, chicken, fish, whole grains, vegetables, potatoes, soybeans, and fortified cereals.

Vitamin B12 — 3 μg (100% NRV*)
Vitamin B12, which is produced primarily by bacteria and archaea and consumed through meat and fortified foods, plays an important role in promoting healthy hair growth. Clinical data shows that about six percent of people under 60 years of age have a vitamin B12 deficiency, with deficiency rates as high as 80% in parts of the developing world. Symptoms of insufficient vitamin B12 include poor memory and ulcers, as well as premature hair loss.

Vitamin C —40 mg (50% NRV*)
While you might not think of it as an important vitamin for hair health, vitamin C plays a major role in keeping your hair thick, strong and healthy. Studies show that vitamin C is an important component in collagen synthesis. This means that getting your daily dose of vitamin C is important for ensuring your hair, skin, nails and other body parts strong, since collagen is the most abundant protein in your body.

Vitamin D3 — 5 µg (100% NRV*)
Vitamin D has been shown in clinical studies to promote the health of skin and hair follicles, and to promote hair regrowth. A deficiency can take its toll on hair health, leading to weakness. It also helps reduce stress-related damage.

Vitamin E — 12 mg (100% NRV*)
Vitamin E is arguably the most important vitamin for promoting hair growth, so much so that it’s widely used in homemade topical formulas to encourage the rapid growth of thick, strong and healthy hair. In fact, scientific study data shows that supplementation of tocotrienols, which are antioxidants in the vitamin E family, contributed to a 34.5% increase in hair growth over eight months of use in study participants.

Niacin — 16 mg (100% NRV*)
Niacinamide (vitamin B3) works anti-inflammatory. It also allows for dilation of the blood vessels, which improves circulation in the scalp, making it easier for nutrients to reach the hair and scalp. It may also lower cholesterol, which can contribute to a reduction in hair loss.

Biotin — 3 mg (6000% NRV*)
Biotin is a B-vitamin that plays a major role in promoting the growth of healthy hair. In fact, biotin is so closely related to the growth of healthy hair that studies indicate approximately 38% of all females with hair loss issues have biotin deficiencies. As well as playing a role in preventing hair loss, biotin seems to have an active role in growing thicker, healthier hair. A recent study shows that oral biotin supplementation can produce faster hair growth in people with thinning hair.

Folic acid — 200 μg (100% NRV*)
Folic acid is important in pregnant women to prevent birth defects. But, it’s also used by the body in the production of red blood cells. Folic acid deficiency may be more common in heavy drinkers, people with absorption disorders like Crohn’s and celiac disease, those on kidney dialysis, or those taking certain medications. Symptoms may include a smooth and tender tongue, poor growth, fatigue, irritability, and diarrhea.

Selenium — 28 μg (50% NRV*)
Selenium is a mineral that is very important for hair growth. It has the recognized EFSA health claim that it helps to keep the hair healthy.

Zinc — 10 mg (100% NRV*)
Zinc is a mineral that plays a role in more than 300 metabolic functions, including cell reproduction, protein utilization, and maintaining hormonal balance. It’s essential in the process of creating collagen and helps to rebalance oils in the scalp. Zinc has the recognized EFSA health claim that it contributes to the maintenance of normal hair. Also, it contributes to the maintenance of normal testosterone levels in the blood.

Bamboo Extract 75% Silica — 80 mg
A 2016 study by Sao Paulo University, Brazil reported that silica helps form the building blocks of collagen, an important protein found in your skin, blood, cartilage, muscles and ligaments. Collagen is needed to keep skin springy and elastic, and provide crucial protection and structure to your organs and joints. In one study of women with sun-damaged skin, those who took 10mg of silica daily for 20 weeks had decreased skin roughness and wrinkling, and also stronger, less brittle hair and nails.

The following ingredients in OASE Hair Vitamins do not have an authorized EFSA-claim (European Food Safety Authority) and therefore, we are not allowed to make references to scientific studies of this ingredient on hair growth.

Iodine — 150 μg (100% NRV*)
Iodine is a type of mineral that’s naturally found in the earth’s soil and ocean waters. Many salt water and plant-based foods contain iodine, and this mineral is most-widely available in iodized salt. It’s important to get enough iodine in the diet. It regulates hormones, fetal development, and more.

Inositol is a vitamin-like substance with some benefits for hair and skin health, but isn’t proven to have an effects on hair growth or preventing hair loss.

Taurine — 50 mg
Taurine is a type of amino acid found in many foods. Many people take taurine as a supplement, and some researchers refer to it as a "wonder molecule". Taurine has been shown to have several health benefits, such as a lower risk of disease and improved sports performance.

Carnitine — 60 mg
Carnitine is an amino acid. It plays a crucial role in the production of energy by transporting fatty acids into your cells' mitochondria. The mitochondria act as engines within your cells, burning these fats to create usable energy.
