BRONZE (JOINT) AWARD Reseed Ginkgo & Sabal Fortifying Shampoo and Reseed Wheatbran Ultra Volume Conditioner
Interestingly, at a time when the beauty industry is shifting towards gender neutrality, Reseed make the point that these products are targeted specifically at female hair. This isn't an exact 'duo', meanwhile, but the shampoo and conditioner were nevertheless submitted by this hair loss brand as a pair: a nourishing shampoo 'enriched with antioxidant vitamins B5, B6, E, F and zinc', not only to tackle dryness but also to prevent hair loss and tackle breakage, plus a conditioner designed to 'densify thin, damaged or dry hair'. (Reseed submitted these products for the 'Moisturising' duo category, but we felt they belonged here, as several of the testers saw benefits with thinning hair.)
OUR TESTERS’ COMMENTS:
'People have really noticed a difference since I've been using these products. My hair is the longest it’s been, and really needs looking after; I really loved these products as they left my hair feeling great, and it was really easy to blow-dry them after use' • 'I would definitely re-purchase. I have had problems with a very sensitive scalp and psoriasis since the menopause and have tried many products including some recommended by my GP. From the first use of the shampoo and conditioner I felt my scalp relax. With regular use, the psoriasis along my hairline has visibly reduced and is now barely noticeable' • 'The product also seemed to thicken my thinning hair which I am very happy with. Best of all my hair looks better; it's shiny and bouncy for the first time in years. Over and above the shampoo and conditioner, I'd make a plea to Reseed for other hair products such as styling gel or wax for people with sensitive and dry scalps; this would make me very happy!' • ‘An excellent shampoo and conditioner that I would recommend for anyone with thinning hair and a sensitive scalp. Would I buy again? YES, YES, YES; Reseed will be a regular purchase for me' • 'For the first time in about 10 years my hair was actually shiny and glossy. I absolutely loved these products; they left my hair feeling great and ready for styling. I will rebuy, for sure.'

Skin application testing by Dermatest, Germany
We approached the world renown Dermatest product testing centre in Münster to throughly test and trial the Reseed products application to skin.
" The goal of these tests is to thoroughly check the compatibility of a formulation based on clinical-dermatological criteria.
Before a clinical trial can commence, and depending on the nature of the study, the candidates are carefully screened and subjected to an initial dermatological examination. Only those individuals who show no signs of pathological changes in the skin are selected for testing. Volunteers taking part in the study are instructed not to use any other similar formulations on the test site. It may be necessary for the dermatologist in charge of the trial to check the condition of the skin as frequently as once a day. Following the application period, the volunteers undergo another dermatological examination to ascertain whether the trial product has caused any irritation to the skin, for example.
Subsequent patch tests are used to determine whether the volunteer has developed a sensitisation to the product during the application trial. All participants are given the opportunity to consult our dermatologists at any time during the study should they need any advice. " Dermatest.de website
