    The Living Proof Story

    GTL Pinterest Smooth Bodified FNL

    The Living Proof story is a story of beautiful chemistry. An alchemy of brilliant scientists coming together with industry veterans to truly solve beauty problems.

     

    It started back in 2004 when Dr. Bob Langer, MIT Institute Professor and world-renowned biotech inventor, teamed up with Jon Flint and Dr. Amir Nashat, partners in the international venture capital firm Polaris Venture Partners. They took a look at the beauty industry and what was actually in beauty products. They discovered that, for both hair and skin products, the beauty industry has relied on the same off the shelf ingredients, most of them far too ineffective to make any real, long lasting impact. This inspired our founders to create new technologies that would offer women "proof in a bottle," rather than "hope in a bottle." So, they assembled a team of scientists from outside the beauty category-scientists from pharma, biotech and medicine - who didn't have any preconceived notions of what could or couldn't be possible in beauty. But the beautiful chemistry didn't end there.

     


    An ingenious collaboration was born when the scientists teamed up with beauty experts like celebrity hair stylist Ward Stegerhoek and entrepreneurial stylist Mitch Derosa, iconic industry veterans who knew women's struggles with traditional beauty products. Beauty met brilliant science, and Living Proof was born.

     

    The Products

     

    FullFull Franchise

    Full creates body and volume that lasts 5x longer.
    Many of us suffer from flat, thin, limp hair. Strands are so fine and smooth that they lie flat – one on top of the other. The lack of texture in hair is what makes creating fullness difficult. And conventional volumizing products rely on stiff, brittle resins that glue hair up and away from the scalp. They’re stiff and untouchable, flaking easily and quickly falling flat. We knew there had to be a better solution.
    So we went to work in our labs and invented Full, our multi-award winning line of thickening products that creates body and bounce for even the finest, flattest hair. Our patented thickening molecule, PBAE, creates a microscopic pattern of thickening points on every hair strand, making hair look and behave like full, thick hair. Full creates long-lasting, revivable fullness that you can run your hands through. It is never flaky, never stiff. And it’s proven to create volume that lasts 5x longer than traditional volumizers.


    All of the products in this award-winning collection are silicone- and oil-free and safe for color and chemically treated hair.

    RestoreRestore Franchise

    Our award-winning Restore line for dry or damaged hair repairs and prevents damage and breakage. Everyday stressors damage the natural protective layer on healthy hair, leaving it porous – unable to seal in moisture and control moisture flux. When moisture is not balanced or controlled, hair strands swell and contract until its structure begins to break down. Restore is formulated with our patented moisture-controlling molecule, OFPMA, to prevent harmful moisture flux, so moisture flow is balanced and controlled, allowing the hair to stay intact and become healthy. Restore also provides broad spectrum UV and thermal protection up to 450°. After 14 days of using the Restore line, hair is shinier, softer and stronger. The longer you use it, the healthier your hair gets. In fact, clinical results show that hair is 20x stronger after using the Restore system for 2 weeks.

    FrizzNofrizz Franchise

    When our scientists decided to tackle frizz, they first identified the two causes of frizz: friction and humidity. Second, they looked at the existing products on the market. They found a very interesting thing. Of thousands of products analyzed, all of them used the exact same ingredients for over 30 years — silicones and oils.

    The problem is that silicones and oils are not effective in blocking humidity and they weigh hair down, making strands feel greasy.We thought there must be a better way. So we invented OFPMA, our patented moisture-controlling molecule behind our award winning, breakthrough No Frizz line. OFPMA literally repels humidity, stopping frizz before it can start. How? OFPMA creates a weightless, invisible shield that wraps around each strand to block humidity. At the same time, OFPMA smoothes hair texture so every strand is polished and frictionless. The formula is weightless, so hair is glossy and smooth without ever feeling heavy or greasy. In fact, No Frizz technology is clinically proven to be 70% more effective in blocking humidity than conventional anti-frizz products.
