Keratinocyte growth factor (KGF) is a DIY active ingredient that may help promote healthy hair growth. Using our sea kelp bioferment as a suspension, KGF utilizes the nutrients that contain prebiotics, polysaccharides and antioxidants to protect the cells that make hair. Simply add 1 tube to 4 oz of your favorite hair mask or base cream. Or add to 4 oz of our Sea Kelp Coral for a power packed hair mask, leave-in conditioner or homemade nail conditioner. Once mixed, apply nightly to scalp, nails or brows to help promote healthy hair and nail growth  Looking for a pre-made product? Try one of our existing products that contain KGF, like Double Action Hair Serum or Brow and Lash Serum.  For best results, make sure you let it soak into skin and hair follicles for as long as possible. 

Add KGF as a DIY mixture into your hair products and create a unique formulation suited for you. This ingredient helps promote healthy hair growth and can be added into hair masks. Also find this in one of our finished products, such as Brow and Lash Serum, Gray Hair Serum and Hair Care Serum. Add one tube of KGF to your favorite hair mask, cream or Sea Kelp Coral.
