C60 is a specific molecule that is made of 60 carbon atoms. Found in nature, C60 was first synthesized in the lab in 1985 and can be found sold by itself or in conjunction with GHK-Cu as a dual-action topical marketed to treat hair loss.
- The in vivo (in mice) evidence suggests that C60 could increase the rate of hair growth, as well as increase the number of hair follicles compared to control-treated mice. These results did not translate to human studies, however.
- The only clinical evidence that we could find was a white paper that suggested that C60 did not increase hair diameter, density, or anagen hair percentage compared to placebo-treated participants. Furthermore, the only results that were different were faster hair growth in the C60 treated participant group, compared to placebo however this isn’t equivalent to more hair growth.
- Our experience tracking members: C60 by itself is not enough to improve hair loss outcomes.
