Patent Pending Technology Growth factors are an innovative technology, pioneered by Nanogen for treating thinning hair.
The Natural Solution for Hair Loss VEGF is a growth factor like the ones humans produce naturally. VEGF maintains hair growth and ensures nutrients and oxygen reaches the hair, allowing it to grow. It also acts against the factors that cause hair to fall, maintaining hair growth.
Complete Approach Complex actives protect the hair from damage and further help reduce hair loss. Other nourishing and repairing ingredients also work to maintain a healthy scalp and ensure a stable, healthy platform for hair growth.
Irritation Free The unique water based serum contains no ethanol or propylene glycol, unlike many other treatment products. It causes no drying or irritation and so is comfortable for continued use every day.
Hair Growth Factors Growth factors are the natural signals produced by your body that control every cell’s’ development, growth, and death. Specific growth factors cause hair to begin growing, mature into fully formed ‘terminal’ hairs, and eventually die and fall out.
Nanogen is utilizing cutting-edge technology to create growth factors identical to the ones that maintain hair growth, and reduce hair loss. These growth factors function exactly as to human ones, but are derived from plants so are uniquely safe, and ethical to use.
Nanogen sh-VEGF Complex™ The safe, plant derived growth factors in Nanogen sh-VEGF Complex support any treatment regime. The growth factors act to help reduce hair loss, and maintain healthy hair and scalp condition.
Superoxide Dismutase Provides broad-spectrum antioxidant protection and may help to maintain levels of nitric oxide signals. This prevents damage to the hair follicle and maintains blood flow.
Hydrolysed Lupine Extract Protects the hair from damage that may cause it to fall, reducing hair loss. Maintains cell metabolic rates in the growing hair follicle.
Soothing and Moisturizing Ingredients Niacinamide and beta-glucan combined prevent redness and irritation, and support wound healing to promote a healthy scalp.
Serum VEGF is safe and free from
SLS and SLES These common surfactants are very harsh and drying to hair. They can also leave skin dry and irritated when left on the skin for long periods of time, such as with Serum VEGF. Whilst not dangerous, SLS and SLES can be drying, irritating, and pore blocking, which may lead to folliculitis. Therefore, no Nanogen product contains SLS or SLES.
Parabens Many people worry about the group of preservatives called parabens. Nanogen does not believe these are harmful, but appreciate our client's concerns and so all our products are paraben free.
Glycols Glycols such as propylene glycol are common preservatives and solvents. These can be pore blocking and irritating, and so no Nanogen products contains any form of glycol.
Formaldehyde Donors Many common preservatives in cosmetics are formaldehyde donors. These are not dangerous, but formaldehyde will damage skin and growing hair cells, so no Nanogen product contains them.

Hair Growth Factors Nanogen sh-VEGF complex is a unique plant derived growth factor in combination with another active to make the effect more pronounced. Healthy hair growth is controlled by a natural cycle, with every individual hair at a different stage of the cycle. Nanogen sh-VEGF complex specifically supports and protects hair whilst maintaining healthy hair growth at each stage of the natural cycle.
How does natural VEGF act on the hair? For hair to grow as part of the natural hair cycle, or for new hairs to grow, a growth phase called Anagen needs to be stimulated. 3 stages are required to bring about Anagen and healthy hair growth:
Cell Proliferation The base of a hair follicle contains a form of stem cells called dermal papilla; these cells need to multiply rapidly to create the cells that form hair. Proliferation reuqires much nutrition and oxygen, VEGF causes vasodilation and increased bloodflow which supports this growth.
Cell Migration When these cells have multiplied, they must move to particular positions to form the structure of the hair. This means they need they communicate with eachother, and organize their “cellular skeleton” to enable them to move. VEGF increases glycoprotein production in certain cells, these glycoproteins allows cells to communicate move and adhere to each other. VEGF acts as a signal for migration itself in certain cases, and increases vasodilation, allowing the movement of cells.
Angiogenesis Growing hair needs nutrients & oxygen, so new small blood vessels form to feed the growing hair, this is called Angiogenesis. VEGF promotes angiogenesis in new hair follicles, but also in existing hair, that is not getting enough oxygen. It also increases another signal called nitric oxide, which causes existing blood vessels to become wider, and more blood to reach where it is needed.
A hormone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT) signals the end of the hair growth phase, bringing about a brief transfer phase called Catagen. It is created from Testosterone by an enzyme called 5Î± reductase. Many ingredients, such as finasteride, aim to block this reaction and so stop the signal ending the growth phase. DHT acts by activating a whole range of genes to cause the death of hair follicle cells, and the loss of the hair. VEGF acts to temporarily suppress these genes, and helps protect the hair from falling prematurely.
After the hair has fallen out naturally, the hair enters a phase called Telogen. VEGF reduces the time that hair spends in this resting phase by stimulating genes for re-entry into the hair growth phase, Anagen.
Nanogen's VEGF formula grows more hair than Minoxidil!
We are happy to announce our long awaited results! These show that Serum VEGF stimulate hair growth significantly more effectively than Minoxidil.
The experiment, conducted blind by an independent clinical laboratory compared the effects of Nanogen VEGF with 5% minoxidil on human hair.
The results of the test are incredible:
Nanogen Serum VEGF treatment significantly increases hair growth, up to 237% more than minoxidil alone.
Nanogen Serum VEGF treatment prolongs hair survival, and therefore can prevent or reduce hair loss.
Nanogen Serum VEGF in combination with minoxidil significantly increases hair growth by up to 133% more than minoxidil alone
Minoxidil Vs Nanogen's Hair Growth Factor
Is it safe to use Serum VEGF every day? Yes it is. Serum VEGF is designed to be safe and effective when used once daily.
Should I wash my hair before I use Serum VEGF? You can wash your hair as normal when using Serum VEGF, but you do not have to wash your hair before every application. Nanogen recommend using Hair Prepare to get the scalp thoroughly cleansed for optimum treatment results, however you can use regular shampoos. Make sure your scalp is always dry before applying Serum VEGF.
What if I accidentally apply too much or too little? The glass pipette enables you to accurately measure how much product you are applying to your scalp. Always check that the total amount you are applying is 1 ml. If you are not sure how much product you have applied, we would recommend that you do not apply more product, instead wait until the next application time, and then make sure you apply the full 1ml.
What if I miss a treatment? If a treatment is missed then wait until the next application and continue with the next dose as normal. Do not apply more than 1ml; simply continue as if you had not missed a treatment.
Is it safe to use Serum VEGF whilst using Minoxidil, Finasteride or other topical treatments? Yes, in fact Serum VEGF has been formulated to complement other treatments. However we would suggest always consulting your GP when you begin using any medication.
What are the side effects of using Serum VEGF? There are no side effects with Serum VEGF. The drying effect of Minoxidil is avoided, as Serum VEGF is a water-based product and contains no alcohol.
What kind of results should I expect? How do I know it is working? Hair growth will be maintained and hair loss will be reduced. Over time, this effect will leave you with thicker and healthier looking hair. Many people experience a slight increase in hair loss called ‘shedding’ after a few weeks use, however this is perfectly normal and stops after a few more weeks. It is difficult to measure your progress daily, counting the number of hairs you lose is not an accurate measure. You should really look at your progress once every 2 weeks if you want to see any difference with the naked eye. After the possible ‘shedding’ period and you will slowly notice an overall thickening of the hair as hair growth is maintained.
How long should I take Serum VEGF for? As with all hair loss products, to maintain the effectiveness of the treatment you are using, you have to continue using it. To ensure optimum results Nanogen recommend continuous use.
