Bianca Rosa (WARNING!)


#1

Yet another hair inhibitor making unsubstantiated claims is Bianca Rosa Hair Inhibitor Lotion by Green Canyon, who also market hair inhibotrs under the Maxima and Smooth Max brand names.

At least they are forthcoming enough to include this legal disclaimer: “Unless otherwise indicated, research, ailment and product information have not been evaluated by the US Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) or Health Canada.”

Their claims are based on a spurious theory that uric acid derivatives can “cornify” a follicle and cause hair follicles to stop producing hair. This has never been demonstrated in published clinincal studies.

Some quacks claims by Green Canyon: Bianca Rosa contains “the same naturally-occurring substances which contribute to normal human baldness.”

“Causes slower finer regrowth, and eventually, no regrowth.”

Consumers should avoid these products until there is published medical data to back these claims.

so this hair inhibitor is claimed to damage the hair follicle?


#3

The manufacturers claim it can reduce hair growth permanently, but there is no published clinical data to back up these claims.

Their main company Zooscape has also been cited by FDA for violations in selling other herbal products with unproven health claims, including a herbal “cholesterol inhibitor” which was stopped at the border by U.S. Customs officials.

“Alternative” medicine and folk remedies have been around thousands of years, but those that stand up to scientific scrutiny are the only ones worth buying. I am not against these products per se, what bothers me is that they are sold without proof. I think consumerts should demand proof before handing over their hard-earned money to these companies.

Unfortunately, anyone can make claims about an herbal product or dietary supplement in order to make money off consumers. Very few companies bother to back up their claims with the kind of scientific proof they should.
