Basics Biotin

Basics Biotin is formulated with bioactive compounds from vegan sources which work synergistically to promote, proliferate, stimulate, hydrate and maintain healthy hair, skin and nails.

It features a blend of five ingredients which work by delivering nutrients that have key roles in hair, skin and nail health. Basics biotin contains vitamin C as ascorbic acid, zinc as zinc citrate along with natural vitamins – vitamin E as alpha- tocopherol, vitamin A as beta carotene and vitamin B7 as biotin from natural Sesbania grandiflora.

Key benefits

• Helps in improving the quality of hair and promotes regrowth by stimulating keratin synthesis.
• Reduces wrinkle formation and slows down ageing by stimulating collagen and elastin synthesis.
• Prevents UV- related skin damage like- dark spots and skin discolouration.
• Helps reduce brittle nails, and improves its strength.

Serving Size

One Capsule


Hair & nails

1. Promotes keratin synthesis.
2. Stimulates proliferation of hair follicles thus reducing hair fall and promoting hair regrowth.
3. Improves quality, tensile strength and structure of the hair fiber.
4. Reduces brittleness by improving thickness and strength of the nails.


1. Reduces acne, skin discolouration and dark spots.
2. Improves elasticity of the skin and reduces wrinkle formation.
3. Promotes elastin and collagen synthesis.
4. Helps to prevent photo induced skin problems and oxidative skin damage.

Product Description


Unived’s Basics Biotin is made with Nutraceuticals that are involved in maintaining and stimulating a healthy development of hair, skin and nails. It contains 25 mcg of biotin which is 100% RDA.

Vitamin C and zinc act as free radical scavengers preventing oxidative damage and photo damage thus slowing down wrinkle formation and ageing. It is also packed with natural sources of Vitamin E as d-Alpha-Tocopherol from Soya Oilseeds, Vitamin A as Beta Carotene from Blakeslea trispora, and Vitamin B7 as Biotin from Sesbania grandiflora leaves to ensure that there is no deficiency as deficiency causes increased hair fall, blemishes and brittle nails. These ingredients are carefully chosen to work on pathways that stimulate development of healthy cells and tissues of hair, skin and nails.

Mode of Action

Vitamin C

• Collagen synthesis: It is involved in hydroxylation of proline and lysine resulting in the conversion of procollagen to collagen.
• Exhibits anti- wrinkle activity: It promotes production of collagen and elastin, thus improving elasticity of the skin.
Vitamin C promotes antioxidant production and inhibits production of pro-inflammatory cytokines and apoptosis triggered by UV light and other environmental factors.
• Reduces hyperpigmentation, dark spots and skin discolouration: It inhibits melanogenesis. Melanin is a natural skin pigment produced for photoprotection, however excess pigmentation of melanin results in hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone. Vitamin C regulates melanin synthesis by inhibiting excess production and works in synergy with vitamin E.

Zinc Citrate

• Photoprotection: The antioxidant activity of zinc protects skin from the harmful effects of free radicals generated as a result of UV radiations or other environmental factors.
• Differentiation of keratinocytes: The ZIP2 protein is a zinc transporter which is involved in the differentiation of keratinocytes.
• Skin health: Zinc ensures proper functioning of the mucous membrane of the skin. It plays a role in the formation of new cells modulating apoptosis and ageing.

Vitamin E

• Scavenges free radicals: Its antioxidant activity helps scavenge free radicals and prevents DNA damage caused by reactive oxygen species (ROS) which retards and prevents the development of skin cancer. It slows ageing by preventing lipid peroxidation.
• Reduces hyperpigmentation: Studies have shown alpha – tocopherol supplementation to suppress melanogenesis and reduce hyperpigmentation mainly caused by increased sun- exposure.
• Additional functions: It has shown to have photoprotective, anti-ageing and hydrating properties. It reduces redness and inflammation occurring due to UV exposure. It also stimulates elastin and collagen production.

Vitamin A

Beta carotene is a precursor to vitamin A which has roles in improving skin health.

• Cell proliferation: It has roles in proliferation of keratinocytes and fibroblasts which stimulates collagen synthesis.
• Photoprotection: Carotenoids like beta carotene and lycopene exhibit photoprotective properties by preventing sun burn- associated erythema followed by a UV exposure.
• Improved skin surface: Studies have shown to improve skin texture by reducing scaling and roughness. It also affects the thickness and density of the skin.

Vitamin B7 as Biotin is a water-soluble vitamin also known as vitamin H acts as a cofactor in the metabolic pathways in the hair root cells.

• Protein -keratin synthesis: Biotin plays an active role in protein synthesis especially keratin synthesis, hence it contributes to healthy nails and a hair growth.
• Nails: Studies have shown that when a sample group with brittle nails is supplemented with biotin there is a considerable increase in the thickness of the nails.
• Hair growth: Due to the presence of sulphur it lowers sebum secretion and activates hair growth.
