The Nue Co. is moving into hair care with two products debuting at Sephora and the brand's own site.
The Supa Thick Scalp Serum is a topical scalp supplement that addresses hair shedding, supports hair growth and rebalances an oily, flaky-looking or dry scalp, per the brand. It qualifies for the retailer's Clean + Planet Positive label.
The vegan formulation features Givaudan Active Beauty's Redensyl follicle technology to stimulate growth and prevent the appearance of shedding. It also features an essential oil blend comprising rosemary, clary sage and peppermint, which stimulates circulation, refreshes and cleanses the scalp. It also includes a probiotic that reportedly reduces the appearance of a dry scalp and dandruff in as little as two weeks.
