Cranston, Rhode Island (October 1, 2012) – Dr. Robert Leonard, chief surgeon and founder of Leonard Hair Transplant Associates, is announcing the launch of Copper Chemist, a hair- care product line custom formulated to harness the regenerative properties of Copper Peptides, the naturally-occurring small protein fragments that are known to increase hair growth, and other natural ingredients with known benefits to the skin and hair.

“Many of today’s hair care products are made with harsh detergents that actually damage our hair,” said Dr. Robert Leonard, New England’s foremost authority on hair restoration with more than 25 years of experience. “Copper Chemist replaces these detergents with naturally-occurring extracts, including Copper Peptides, to promote healthy, strong and radiant hair.”

Although Dr. Leonard is a nationally known hair-restoration doctor, Copper Chemist is not intended solely for people with thinning hair; it is recommended for anyone who wants fuller and healthier-looking hair.

“Between the ages of 20 and 60, the level of Copper Peptides in human plasma drops by 60 percent, from 200 ng/ml to 80 ng/ml,” said Dr. Leonard. “Just as we take vitamins to give our body a boost, we should use hair-care products designed to give our hair a boost and improve its overall health.”

In addition to Copper Peptides, other ingredients in Copper Chemist Shampoo include the super anti-oxidant Green Tea, as well as Red Algae Extract (Carrageen) which is a proven free radical scavenger that provides 500 times greater anti-oxidant benefits than Vitamin E. Nutrient-rich oils such as Camellia, Sunflower and Rice Bran make hair healthy and help give a great shine.

The Wheat and Silk proteins contained in Copper Chemist Conditioner strengthen hair, while Alpha Hydroxy Acids from natural Sugarcane and Fruit Extracts provide a healthy shine and easy manageability.

Copper Chemist is free of damaging sulfates, phthalates and parabens. It is a unisex product, which features an invigorating Rosemary Mint fragrance and is available in 8.12 ounce (240ml) bottles for an introductory price of $16.00 per bottle through the online store or $17.00 at Dr. Leonard’s offices.
