Bonafide has launched a three-step system designed to improve the health and appearance of hair and skin impacted by menopause—Silvessa. The daily routine includes a capsule, hair serum and skin serum that is formulated to restore collagen and nutrients impacted by declining estrogen levels.

The Nourishing Daily Capsule contains Bonafide’s strengthening formulation made with phycocyanin, biotin that is three times more potent than generic biotin and silicon that’s better absorbed, according to the brand. The capsule is taken orally.
Strengthening Hair Serum is applied directly to the scalp and contains a proprietary blend of naturally restorative ingredients, including Bonafide's strengthening formulation. It works at the source to visibly increase hair volume, thickness and growth while boosting shine and strength.
Hydrating Skin Serum is massaged directly onto the skin. It contains a combination of hyaluronic acid and vitamins to provide deep hydration that visibly reduces fine lines and wrinkles.
In a 3-month open-label trial of the Silvessa system cited by Bonafide, 92% of respondents saw an increase in overall hair volume and 82% saw an increase in hair thickness. Additionally, 83% of respondents were more satisfied with how healthy their skin looked and 75% reported improvement in skin smoothness.
Silvessa is available exclusively at hellobonafide.com. It costs $165 for a one-time purchase or can be purchased via one month or three-month subscription, costing $97.50 per month and $87.75 per month, respectively.
Alyssa Dweck, M.D., OBGYN, chief medical officer of Bonafide, "Menopause can be impactful in so many ways, but unwelcome changes to the physical appearance including those to hair and skin can be the most jarring for women. Having one unique and simple to use system that addresses these concerns will be beneficial to those experiencing menopause-related hair and skin symptoms."
