Warner Babcock Institute Unveils Breakthrough Anti-Aging Treatment that Restores Gray Hair to its Natural Color

Hairprint® is a 100% non-toxic solution for coloring hair

Wilmington, MA April 2, 2015 -- The Warner Babcock Institute for Green Chemistry, LLC (WBI) announces the commercial availability of Hairprint, a revolutionary treatment for the reversal of gray hair. Hairprint restores gray hair to its natural color in 90 minutes by mirroring the natural process of hair pigmentation. This innovative treatment is the result of research inspired by principles of Green Chemistry and biomimicry, and is now available under license to Hairprint.

  1. Age reversal process rejuvenates, replenishes and restores gray hair to its natural color
  2. Naturally restores the hair’s natural pigment. It employs no coal-tar dyes or dyes of any kind
  3. Treated hair becomes fuller, thicker, and more lustrous
  4. 100% environmentally friendly
  5. Consists of eight food-grade ingredients
  6. Non-fading
  7. Odor free and hypoallergenic
  8. Restores all types and shades of brown and black hair
  9. Sensitive enough for people who cannot use hair dyes including those in cancer remission, pregnant and nursing mothers, and those with chemical sensitivities

Invented by Dr. John Warner and patented by WBI, Hairprint® is the only product on the market with this revolutionary approach to gray hair. Rather than trying to dye gray hair, an invasive process involving a long list of chemicals, Dr. Warner took another approach and created a treatment that restores what is missing from gray hair: the natural pigment melanin. How does Hairprint restore hair color? Every strand of hair has a unique internal structure that determines the configuration of pigment in hair. This “hairprint” is as distinctive as a fingerprint. When Hairprint® is applied, the natural pigment reintegrates into the cortex restoring original hair color.

Not only is Hairprint a safe choice for individuals, it is the safest choice for the environment. With over 3 billion pounds of toxic hair dye being released into aquatic environments annually, an effective and responsible alternative is now available.

“We are all very excited at WBI to see our invention making its way from our labs to people who demand high quality products that are more healthy for themselves, their families and the environment,” said Dr. Warner, President and CTO of WBI.

“Hairprint is a product many women and men have been waiting for,” said Elizabeth Lindsey, PhD, co-founder of Hairprint.   “It is a way to restore health and color to hair without risk to oneself and the environment. As a native Hawaiian woman, I try to guide myself and others towards the least harmful way of living on the earth. Hairprint does this and more. My hair is healthier, stronger, and more vibrant than it was 20 years ago.”
