Joico Uses DNA-Based Science to Change Haircare

by BWW News Desk
JOICO has found the missing links in damaged hair, and engineered DNA-based science into a new ingredient that will be featured in its entire breadth of haircare products. With this innovative scientific development, the research and development team at JOICO has opened a new door to discover technology that will change hair formulations and the industry forever. JOICO's extensive brand transformation includes new product formulations, eleven next-generation stylers and a brand face lift.
SCIENTIFIC BREAKTHROUGH: BIO-ADVANCED PEPTIDE COMPLEX, LASTS FOR UP TO 25 SHAMPOOS
Thirty years ago JOICO launched hydrolyzed keratin to repair and reconstruct damaged hair. A breakthrough at that time, it was the process of breaking keratin into small pieces to penetrate the hair shaft. Since then, the brand's unwavering commitment to research and development has yielded new, evolved forms of human hair keratin, including the Bio-Advanced Peptide Complex. Derived from the 2003 Human Genome Project, Bio-Advanced Peptide Complex creates a never-before-seen shield of protection and precisely imitates peptides to keep hair healthy.
The thirteen-year Human Genome Project coordinated by the U.S. Department of Energy and the National Institute of Health made it possible to understand the DNA structure of every part of the human body... including hair. Joico's scientists understood early on that in unearthing the DNA structure of hair the genome project could lead to a futuristic approach to hair reconstruction. Now able to see the exact structure of human hair, Joico's scientists got to work on identifying which peptides get weakened and damaged thus leading our formulators to engineer a highly functional and advanced peptide amino acid chain that replicates any portion of hair keratin. JOICO's Bio-Advanced Peptide Complex peptides replicate theexact amino acids in the exact order of the peptides that cause damage in hair.
"By mimicking the exact peptide chain needed to optimally repair and protect hair, Bio-Advanced Peptide Complex goes above and beyond the limits of human hair keratin-not only repairing the exact sites of damage, but also preventing future damage by creating a molecular shield of protection around the hair structure that lasts up to 25 shampoos," explains Rushi Tasker , Director of Research & Development.
JOICO Bio-Advanced Peptide Complex is now featured in all JOICO shampoos, conditioners, treatments and the new stylers. While some keratin-based products can over-keratinize hair, the JOICO formula is carefully balanced and gives a soft, shiny and supple feel to the hair, in addition to longer-lasting reconstruction and increased strength and elasticity like no other keratin product today can do. Hair becomes dramatically stronger and healthier, even after just one use.
TRANSFORMING STYLE: NEXT GENERATION STYLERS
POWER SERIES with AquaLastik
"Hold, shine and flexibility are the holy trinity when it comes to hairstyling," says Joico International Artistic Director Damien Carney . "With the new JOICO Power Series and range of styling products I can use heated tools to create beautiful, natural looking styles that stay put - this is what we're seeing in the salons, natural-looking healthy styles that shine. And thanks to the formula's flexibility, I can restyle and rework a look immediately."
