With male and female hair loss patterns being different, Nourkrin® Woman is the first and exclusive product focusing on female hair loss problem through proteoglycan replacement.”
Nourkrin Woman is a core prescription product in India and will be promoted by Glenmark exclusively to dermatologists across the country. It will also be available at select retail chemists and healthcare portals.
According to Indian Journal of Clinical and Experimental Dermatology, 15.3% women in India reportedly suffer from hair loss. As per 2011 Census data, population of women in the country was 586.47 million. This means 90 million women have hair loss problem.
Number of factors such as stress, pollution, certain medical disorders, childbirth, conditions caused by hormonal imbalances, use of certain drugs, nutritional deficiencies, and use of styling products disrupt the hair growth cycle and lead to hair loss in women. Nourkrin Woman addresses the core issue of normalizing the hair growth cycle.
Nourkrin Woman, available as tablets, is an easy-to-use therapy compared to clinical procedures and hair sprays and creams. The tablets have to be consumed twice a day for six months.
