Three women from Oman claim to have successfully developed a hair cream that reduces hair loss and thinning of the scalp. They used their uncles as guinea pigs to ensure that the cream works.
The women students from the Higher College of Technology, Heba Al Ghafri, Sharifa Al Qaitaiti, and Faiza Al Khatiri, helped create the cream from the root of a Cherimoya plant, known in Arabic as Al Mustaafl and obtained a patent from the Ministry of Commerce and Industry to produce it.
Speaking to the Times of Oman, the students said, “Our product has proved its efficiency, and now we are looking for an investor to manufacture the product in larger quantities and distribute it to a wider range of people.”
The cream helps increase the volume and thickness of hair and even regrow it. Al Ghafri said, “A dermatologist tested the product on a patient with a hair loss problem and saw effective results; my uncle and my colleague’s brother also tested the product and saw good results.”
