Pilfood is a brand of products created by Spanish pharmaceutical and health products company Laboratorios Serra Pamies to address hair problems in men and women.
Its anti-hair loss treatment Pilfood Direct is a topical spray claimed to slow hair loss by 86%, increase hair growth by 57%, and increase volume by 57%. Pilfood attribute these claims to the active ingredient PRO-ANAGEX®, declared by manufacturers to be an “anti-hair loss and capillary revitalising molecule” developed exclusively for Pilfood products. PRO-ANAGEX is also listed as the active ingredient in Pilfood Anti Hair Loss Shampoo. However, there is no conclusive evidence that Pilfood Direct or PRO-ANAGEX can prevent hair loss or generate hair growth. According to Laboratorias Serra Pamies, Pilfood Direct is a cosmetic product not a medicinal product and it is not approved by the FDA or licensed by the MHRA for the treatment of hair loss.
Its nutritional supplement, Pilfood Capsules, is intended for men and women with fragile, dull and thinning hair, and weak and brittle nails. It contains vitamins and minerals essential for strong hair and a healthy scalp such as Vitamin B6, Vitamin E, Riboflavin, and Biotin. It also contains essential amino acids vital for the formation of keratin (the basic structure of hair) including DL-Methionine and L-Cystine. Pilfood Capsules may be a supportive treatment for hair loss in men and women by conditioning the scalp and strengthen existing hair, however there is no evidence to suggest that this nutritional supplementation can singularly prevent hair loss or directly result in new hair growth.
Pilfood hair care products are formulated to address specific conditions of the scalp. Each product contains ingredients claimed or believed to improve these problems to support healthy hair growth. Pilfood hair care products are designed for every day use and include Pilfood Anti Hair Loss Shampoo (with soy protein concentrate, Vitamins E, C, B3, B5, B6, and PRO-ANAGEX), Pilfood Ph Shampoo (with millet extract), Pilfood Anti-Seborrhoea Shampoo (with hamamelis virginiana, urtica dioica and lappa extract), Pilfood Anti-Dandruff Shampoo (piroctone olamine, juniper berry and millet extract), Pilfood Greasy Hair Shampoo (with witch-hazel, nettle extract and millet extract), and Pilfood Conditioner (with with jojoba and millet extract).
