  1. How does KerMax work?

    1. KerMax products contain a complex of natural active compounds – peptide amino acids, fruit stem cells and botanical extracts. They are formulated into an advanced cosmetic delivery system that targets scalp and hair follicles. When applied on scalp a triple-action process helps: (i) modulate blood circulation; (ii) deliver nutrients and oxygen to the hair follicles; (iii) reduce inflammatory processes that may denature hair follicles. When used as directed, fine thinning hair appears fuller, more radiant with more vitality and hair shaft strength. This natural hair repair process helps reduce hair loss and support the potential for new hair regrowth.
  2. Can men use KerMax too?

    1.  KerMax formulas were tested on women under the supervision of a board-certified dermatologist in a California study. For this reason, we are confident in its results for women. However, clinical studies using one or more of the active, natural ingredients found in KerMax were clinically studied and tested on male subjects with positive results to varying degrees.
  3. Will KerMax work if I am bald?

    1. If the potential for nutrient and oxygen uptake by hair follicles is still viable then there is the potential for new hair regrowth. However, one needs to understand the probable cause of hair loss. It may be rooted in hormonal, medical (ie. thyroid issues), intense emotional or physical stress, poor diet or changes in diet, over use of certain medications, lifestyle changes (ie. pregnancy, menopause) or lifestyle choices (over styling, color treating etc.). Some of these causes can be addressed and KerMax can be part of such a regime. As a responsible organization we recommend to discuss your issue of baldness with a professional practitioner to help isolate the reason for such issue. Discuss the KerMax option with your practitioner in this case.
  4. Is this the same as over-the-counter drug formulas Minoxidil (Rogaine) or Finasteride (Propecia)?

    1. No, KerMax is not a synthetic drug formula and contains no active synthetic drug compounds. KerMax is formulated with natural active compounds – peptide amino acids, fruit stem cells and botanical extracts – and is regulated as a cosmetic formula. The active, natural formulation is effective and completely safe, with no known side effects.
  5. I don`t wish to buy all 5 products, can I start with just one?

    1. The KerMax formulas have proven effective when used as directed in a regime under clinical scrutiny in a 3-month study combining Volumizing Shampoo, Volumizing Conditioner, Essential Day Foam and Thickening Hair Serum. Not following this regime may prove effective at varying degrees over a different period of time as evidenced by consumer use not evaluated under clinical conditions.
  6. Will KerMax dry out my scalp?

    1. KerMax has been shown to improve scalp health and balance the scalp condition for both dry scalp and excessive oily scalp.
  7. Does KerMax interact with medication?

    1. Unlike over-the-counter or prescription drug hair growth formulas KerMax is not contra-indicated and has no known interactions with any pharmaceutically active drugs. However, as a responsibly managed organization we advise that you discuss the use of KerMax with a professional practitioner should you have any concern whatsoever due to your personal use or requirement of any current Rx prescriptions.
  8. Is KerMax safe to use for any age?

    1. KerMax products were researched and developed as cosmetic formulas without the use of synthetic drug active ingredients. For this reason, there is no age restriction that applies to the KerMax formulas. However, if you have a child that is experiencing hair growth problems or abnormal daily hair loss it is recommended you consult with a professional practitioner to rule out any underlying medical issues.
  9. Can I use KerMax if I am an expecting or nursing mom?

    1. Unlike other hair loss formulas that contain synthetic drug active ingredients, the KerMax products contain natural active compounds and were researched and developed as cosmetic formulations. Therefore, expecting and nursing mothers can use KerMax without concern of potential, unwarranted side effects as they would any other cosmetic hair care formula.
  10. I just completed chemotherapy. Can I use KerMax?

    1. As a responsible manufacturer of safe cosmetic formulas we would suggest that you consult with a professional practitioner prior to use of KerMax products if you are undergoing, or have undergone, any medical procedure including chemotherapies. However, you may alert your practitioner that KerMax products were clinically trialed on women of various ages under various life stages including one test subject who had completed chemotherapy and using KerMax as directed experienced positive results. 
  11. Does KerMax work on any hair color or hair-type?

    1. The KerMax formulas have been subjected to a scientifically controlled study on women under the supervision of a California board-certified dermatologist. The test group included women of various ages, in various life stages, with various hair types, hair colors and hair-loss issues. 100% of participants achieved positive results at varying degrees within various timeframes when using KerMax as directed.
  12. Does perming or coloring hair affect the expected results of KerMax products?

    1. The most common cause of physical hair damage is over processing involving harsh chemicals and treatments that weaken hair fibres. Once the soft hair fibre interior has been exposed during a physical treatment (brushing, combing, pulling of hair), exterior factors like perming or coloring (also straightening, bleaching, dying, relaxing weaving and extension applications) accelerate the damage leading to the increase in potential hair loss. When hair loss exceeds hair growth it is obvious what the visible result looks like over time. KerMax has been created to help address this issue when hair is damaged and compromised by external lifestyle choices.
  13. Does KerMax affect perming or colouring during or after the treatment?

    1. The use of KerMax products will not interact or interfere with hair processing treatments like perming or color treatments, nor will they compromise the processing results. In fact, KerMax has been created to help address the issue of damaged hair caused by processing methods and chemicals.
  14. Do I apply the Essential Day Foam or Thickening Hair Serum directly to my hair?

    1. Both Essential Day Foam and Thickening Hair Serum should be applied directly to hair and scalp and massaged gently until fully absorbed.
  15. Can I use the Essential Day Foam at night and the Thickening Hair Serum during the day?

    1. Essential Day Foam is less dense in consistency than Thickening Hair Serum. For this reason, it is recommended as the day use formula in the KerMax regime so as not to interfere with your daily hair styling ritual. However, if this use concept is not concerning to you there would be no issue to use the Thickening Hair Serum as a day application.
  16. I have grey hair. Can I still use KerMax?

    1. KerMax can be used on any hair type and color. This includes grey hair or color treated hair. As well, preliminary, and as yet, not fully substantiated, evidence is showing that with compliant use of KerMax it may even reverse the appearance of grey hair.
  17. I have fine hair. What results should I expect from KerMax?

    1. The clinical trial performed on women of various ages with various hair loss, thinning hair and hair growth issues, under the supervision of a California board-certified dermatologist, yielded positive results for all test participants within the three-month test timeframe. Some achieved positive results within one week. Those test subjects with fine hair experienced results of greater hair volume, shinier, healthier looking hair.
  18. I`m not losing hair but I find my hair to be dull and lifeless. Will KerMax help correct this?

    1. The clinical trial performed on women of various ages with various hair loss, thinning hair or dull, lifeless hair, under the supervision of a California board-certified dermatologist, yielded positive results for all test participants within the three-month test timeframe. Some achieved positive results within one week. Test subjects reported hair with more vitality, strength, volume and radiance. KerMax also reports that individuals who use, or have used, the product that were not part of any test protocol and do not have dull, lifeless hair, experience more shine and volume within just a few days of use.
  19. Has KerMax been scientifically scrutinized?

    1. An independent consumer pilot study conducted in 2014 by the Detuag Testing Centres in California concluded KerMax to help effectively reverse the appearance of thinning, damaged hair. The study was supervised by Board Certified Dermatologist Dr. Peter Helton and performed over a 12-week period on women between the ages of 20 and 60 years experiencing thinning hair and hair loss.  In the 12-week study 21 women volunteers received and used KerMax Volumizing Shampoo, Volumizing Conditioner, Essential Day Foam and Thickening Hair Serum to treat their hair and scalp. Most participants in the study saw some reversal of hair thinning in just one week. Statistics across the entire study group resulted in reductions of hair loss. The average hair loss using the industry standard Shake Test was 78.5% less hair falling and 76% less loss of hair in the standard Pull Test. The core finding of the study was that with ongoing compliance an individual that experiences perceived thinning hair and hair loss can expect to experience the appearance of greater hair volume with fuller, healthier hair while offsetting the perception of hair loss without major changes to one`s usual hair washing and care routine. As well there are numerous clinical studies, ex-vivo, in-vivo and placebo controlled on human test subjects, that have been performed independently using the individual active natural source compounds found in KerMax – peptide amino acids, fruit stem cells and botanical extracts, that conclude positive results for the reduction in the appearance of thinning hair, greater hair volume, strength, radiance and potential for renewed hair regrowth.
  20. How long do I have to use KerMax before I see results?

    1. Based on an independent consumer pilot study conducted at the Detuag Testing Centres in California KerMax helped effectively reverse the appearance of thinning hair and hair loss over a 12-week period. Most participants saw some reversal of hair loss in just 7 days. With compliance of use and following the regime of the study participants one should see or feel greater hair strength, radiance and density within the clinical study test parameters of 7 days to 12 weeks.
  21. Where are the products manufactured?

    1. All KerMax products are manufactured in a state-of-the-art cosmetic production site in central France. All cosmetic GLP and GMP (good lab practice, good manufacturing practice) processes are strictly adhered to ensure absolute clinical purity and product integrity for every batch. The facility is certified ISO 9001, V2000 according to compliance recommended by the French Agency of Sanitary Security, as well as, ECOCERT defining ecological and biological cosmetics.
  22. Are there any side effects using KerMax?

    1. Unlike topical prescription drug formulas, topical over-the-counter synthetic formulas and nutritional supplement ingestible formulas KerMax has no known side effects, no counter-indications or interactions to create any side effects.
  23. Is KerMax tested on animals?

    1. KerMax products have not and are not tested on animals. To the best of our investigation and security no raw materials used in the manufacturing of KerMax products are tested on animals. As well, KerMax products do not contain any animal by-products.
  24. Is KerMax approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) or Health Canada?

    1. KerMax products are cosmetic formulations. They contain no pharmaceutically active compounds and make no drug, or drug-like benefit claims. As such no preapproval process is required by the Food and Drug Administration in the U.S. or the Health Protection Branch of Health Canada. All ingredients are compliant for use as cosmetic ingredients for topical use. As well, products are manufactured in France under the strict protocols that meet European Cosmetic Manufacturing Practice guidelines, the same guidelines followed by all major brand name retail cosmetic hair care products found at your favorite retail locations in the U.S. and Canada.
  25. What is a peptide amino acid?

    1. Amino acids are the organic compound chains that make up protein. Proteins are the building blocks of all living cells. Peptides are the shorter chain amino acids that signal or modulate the majority of the natural process within the body. Among these processes are inflammation, protein synthesis and cell signalling (telling cells how to react and what to do). KerMax peptides include acetyl tetrapeptide-3 and Biotinyl-GHK. These peptides have been formulated and stabilized into proprietary complexes to enable their benefit to reach intended body target sites. This formulation and stabilization process is most important because in general peptides cannot penetrate skin or remain stable.
  26. What is a fruit stem cell?

    1. Multicellular organisms like humans, animals and plants all have stem cells. In the simplest of descriptions stem cells play a vital role in tissue growth and repair. KerMax uses the extracts, not the live cells, of certain fruits and plants. The extracts are able to survive longer and are compatible in cosmetic preparations. KerMax fruit and plant stem cells are cultivated in controlled scientific environments, absent from any micro contaminants and destabilizing actions. This process allows the rich beneficial compounds found in the stem cell to remain pure. When coupled with the advanced cosmetic technology of liposome delivery, the fruit and plant stem cell compounds remain, fresh, active and are able to be delivered intact to their intended body site.
  27. Will hair grow on my hand or back by using KerMax?

    1. There is no evidence to suggest that hair will grow on hands, back or any part of the body. The potential for the appearance of hair loss reduction or of hair growth on scalp is the only location isolated for visible results. 
  28. Can I use my regular hair styling products with KerMax?

    1. Frequent or inappropriate application of hair gels or hair spray is a factor that leads to potential further hair damage and possible hair loss. If one`s soft hair fibre is in an exposed condition or one is in a state whereby hair loss exceeds hair regrowth, for whatever reason, application of heavy gels and hairsprays may exasperate the situation. KerMax created a special styling mousse specifically for this reason. The KerMax Styling Mousse h3 Hold formula of peptide amino acids and organic pea sprouts helps boost volume and body to fine, thinning hair. It resists humidity for a lasting hold too.
  29. Where can I purchase KerMax products?

    1. KerMax products can be purchased in Canada exclusively at Shoppers Drug Mart and PharmaPrix, in the USA at CVS pharmacies or online at CVS.com/KerMax, AgeLessShop.com and KerMax.com.
  30. My hair is damaged, will KerMax help?


    1. Damaged hair may be the result of many different issues, directly or indirectly attributed to hormonal and life stage changes, medical conditions, chemical processing exposure, intense emotional or physical stress, changes in or poor diet. One should determine the reason(s) for the damaged state with a professional practitioner. KerMax was created to help nourish scalp and in turn hair follicles. The condition and appearance of hair in most cases, like that of skin, is a gauge of inner health. Healthy scalp and hair follicles will result in hair with more vitality, radiance and strength. If hair is damaged as a direct result of chemical perms or treatments one should discuss with their stylist and consider the following factors before continuing further treatments: porosity, thickness, elasticity, volume and length. The KerMax regime should most certainly be considered to help in the process of hair repair in instances such as this.
  31. Is KerMax Sulfate-free?

    1. The only product that contains sulfates is the KerMax Volumizing Shampoo. Sulfates are commonly used in personal care products as a foaming agent.  Sulfates have been reviewed quite thoroughly, and found to be safe when used as intended.
  32. Is KerMax 100% Natural?

    1. The active compounds found in KerMax formulas- peptide amino acids, fruit stem cells and botanical extracts are derived solely from natural sources The balance of remaining ingredients, while fresh, clinically pure and approved for everyday use in topical cosmetic formulas, they are not 100% natural.
  33. Can KerMax be used on children`s scalp. If not, then at what age?

    1. Because KerMax is a cosmetic formulation and contains no synthetic drug compounds there should be no reason for any adverse effects for use on children. However, as a responsible corporation we would question why one would need to use KerMax on children. If there is a hair loss, hair thinning or damaged hair issue we would recommend that you first consult with a professional practitioner to rule out underlying medical conditions. If the intended use is for post chemo or similar therapies one should also consult with a professional practitioner before use.
  34. How long do I need to keep using KerMax?

    1. The KerMax formulations were tested under a clinical pilot study at the Detuag Testing Centres in California for 90 days with beneficial results. Every consumer will achieve and maintain their desired results at varying degrees over different periods of time. Once you have achieved your desired results you may wish to explore options as to how and when you wish to use the individual products. Daily use of the Volumizing Shampoo and Volumizing Conditioner is recommended after you have achieved your desired results.
  35. How will I notice results while using KerMax?

    1. Without a proper clinical study setting it may be difficult to notice results. However, the following signs should be examples of beneficial results when using KerMax as directed: less hair on tub or shower base after washing; less hair in comb or brush after grooming; hair begins to appear shinier, more radiant; hair appears to feel more flexible, pliable, softer but h3er; if prone to “greasy” hair and scalp it will feel less “greasy”; if prone to dry, flakey scalp it will feel less dry and less flakey. You may want to test your skills as an amateur photographer too by taking photos, getting as close to the scalp as possible, to take your pictures. Track your results by taking photos from the front, top and back on a weekly basis to visually monitor your progress.
  36. What is Club Modèle?

    1. Club Modèle is a member rewards program for loyal KerMax Hair Care and Modèle Collagen Lip Formula consumers.
