NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Aug. 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Daniel Alain Life Science, a new biotech company under The House of Daniel Alain, announced today that it has acquired the intellectual property rights for a revolutionary patented technology that reduces that amount of hair that is shed during washing and styling procedures.
The intellectual property rights were acquired from Applied Biology, Inc. a biotechnology incubator focused on developing novel dermatological therapies. Professor Dr. Andy Goren, founder of Applied Biology, is the original inventor of the technology. While researching different treatments for traction alopecia – a form of hair loss acquired by applying forces that pull on hair follicles such as when hair brushing or flat-ironing, Prof. Goren discovered that the small muscle connected to each hair follicle when contracted "holds stronger" the hair and thus reduces the shedding associated with cosmetic styling procedures. Prof Goren explains: "the contraction of the errector pili muscle attached to each hair follicle is familiar to everyone as the phenomena of goosebumps. Trying to pull hair from a goosebump requires much more force then when the skin is smooth. This innovation uses the same techniquie to prevent hair shedding from mechanical styling procedures."
Daniel Alain Life Science intends to introduce a commercial product based on this technology in the first half of 2017. According to the CEO, Daniel Hafid: "we are excited to work with Applied Biology to bring to market an innovative treatment for a large unmet need."
