The Ordinary Multi Peptide Serum

Ingredients explained

The Ordinary Multi-peptide Serum contains a lot of the ingredients I’ve seen in many hair growth treatments. None of the
ingredients are cutting edge and you’re not likely to see miracles happen from this product, but there are some proven results from studies on these ingredients that are worth mentioning:


I see caffeine in a lot of hair loss treatments. That’s because it’s cheap, it’s been shown to have some positive results on hair growth and it’s thought to reduce scalp DHT.

Acetyl Tetrapeptide-3

Acetyl Tetrapeptide-3 is another cheaper ingredient that’s found in many of the less serious hair growth treatments. There seems to be some research suggesting that the chemical may increase growth factors in the scalp, helping to invcrease the growth phase of haier and reducing hair loss.

Larix Europaea Wood Extract

Larix Europea is one of the ingredients in Redensyl, which, eccording to the makers, is more effective than Minoxidil at increasing hair growth. However, research is very limited on this and I’m skeptical about the claims.

Pisum Sativum (pea sprout) Extract

I’ve seen Pea Sprout (Pisium Sativium) Extract in absolutelty loads of hair loss treatments. Supposedly it increases the growth factor FGF7, which is one of several growth factors that prolongs the growth phase of hair, reducing hair loss.


Apigenin is another greeat ingredient to include in a hair loss topical. This ingrdient reduces the transforming growth factor TGFbeta1. TGFbeta1 cause the hair folliclez to transition from growth phase to dormant phase, causing hair loss. So reducing TGFbeta1 is a good way to reduce hair loss.

Oleanolic acid

Another great ingredient I’ve known about for some time, oleanolic acid increases the growth factors IGF-1 and VEGF: both of which are shown to increase hair growth.


Wow, I didn’t expect this product to contain quite so many hair growth stimulating ingredients. It’s actually not bad. Although it doesn’t contain any more potent ingredients like Minoxidil, RU58841 or Sandalore, it is actually a pretty good product, worth giving a try.
