BFC Hair and Scalp Massage Oil for Thinning Hair

thinning hair
    I have been working on my thinning hair for a little over two years using the BF&C Hair and Scalp Massage Oil. My mother had thinning hair as does my sister, and in looking around at women I have seen quite a few that have the same problem.  I don’t have a before photo, but what you see in the photo is the hair coming back in.  It likely would have come in much quicker if I had been more diligent about it,  I was only remembering to use it about once a week or so, but lately I will remember about 5 days a week.  We tried it on my husband but he has been bald for too many years.  For people that are beginning to have thinning issues I think they will have great success using the BF&C Hair & Scalp Massage Oil, along with the BF&C Shampoo and Conditioner
    My 20 year old nephew has been using all three BF&C hair products for many years.  He has alopecia and as long as he continues to use it he is able to keep his hair looking pretty nice.  He rubs the conditioner into his eyebrows and lightly on his eyelashes to get the nutrients to those areas since they are affected as well.  Alopecia is thought to be an autoimmune disease.  Immucalm would be a good formula to help calm down this type of reaction in the body.

Christopher's Mission and Quality Statement

Christopher Logo
Our Mission is to provide natural whole food dietary supplements according to the Dr. John R. Christopher ND, MH philosophy at fair prices with excellent service. Dr. Christopher's Original Formulas are time-tested & have been manufactured since 1945 and trusted by millions of people because they work.

Time and time again, we hear from customers that they tried another brand but did not experience the same results as with Dr. Christopher's Formulas. To this, we reply it's because the quality and experience that is put into every bottle we make. From the fields that harvest our herbs, through the state of art manufacturing processes, down to the finish product that our customers take daily.

Dr. John R. Christopher was a pioneer of natural supplements that are very
common today. Far ahead of his time, John began formulating when no one sold wholesale herbs, so he had to find ingredients and create his own formulas. Over the years he created more than 66 formulas that are still used by millions today. Dr. Christopher's fame grew rapidly and In 1953 he set up the School of Natural Healing that is still operating today and many founders of other herbal businesses have studied and learned from his philosophy. He wrote 5 books that continue to be great sellers. He gave more than 120 lectures and seminars internationally and in the United States. Dr. Christopher's legacy continues in the lives he touched and in his herbal formulas will aid through generations to come.

We only use Whole Herb/Plant products, not standardized. Today the process of extracting "leading active ingredients" is common place and is called "Standardization." It's all the rage throughout the chemical and natural food industry. The theory is that if one dose of a "suspected" key ingredient is good, a large dose all at once of that ingredients is better. Not so! Those leading active ingredients are properly placed, by Nature, in proportions mixed with other ingredients to keep the herb in perfect balance synergistically. When taken in whole form, they present to your body a balanced solution.

Dr. Christopher strongly demanded his company only manufacture herbal products using the Whole herb, never extracting a single ingredient. He understood the necessity of using herbs the way nature had intended them, in their whole state.

We only accept Non-treated or steam treated Organic and Wildcrafted herbs when available (reasons for unavailability: endangered, out of season, failed crops etc.), and all ingredients are listed on our product label. We are 100% Pure. We do not use chemicals or chemical clones, added fillers/flow agents, or genetically modified ingredients that many companies use to cheapen their product for profit. As the saying goes "You get what you pay for". If you start with a cheap raw material, there is nothing you can do in the manufacturing process to improve quality. Sourcing high-quality ingredients for our formulas is key. Often we will receive a sample from a supplier and test results show that it does not contain active constituents in proper ratios so it is rejected and the sourcing process continues until the high quality expectations are met. Unfortunately, there are many that do not share the same high standards in the marketplace today and as is always the case we get what we pay for. We can't expect a cheap car to out perform and have the luxuries of a top-of-the-line vehicle, just as we shouldn't expect a cheaply made herbal product to benefit our body the same way the highest-quality supplements will.

Our vegetarian caps are manufactured with state-of-the-art technology, and made from a vegetable derived raw material. Our hard shell vegetable capsules are produced with Hydroxipropylmethylcellulose (HPMC), derived from wood and cotton fibers, which is certified as Kosher for year round and passover use by the Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations of America and meets all requirements of current USP and FCC (Food Chemical Codex). HPMC. They are considered Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) by FDA, are non-ionic and sulfate free. Finally there now is a real alternative for vegetarians and consumers who are restricted by religion from taking capsules made from beef or pork byproducts.

Dr. Christopher Extracts are a 4:1 ratio (4 part herb to 1 part vegetable glycerin or pure grain alcohol). We use a Cold Percolation Process to ensure that no enzymes are destroyed. This extraction process preserves the natural occuring enzymes in the plant product. Unfortunately it's all too common for other manufacturers to use a heating process which destroys many of the vital nutrients and enzymes in the plant. Our glycerin is tested for DEG contamination and is DEG free, kosher, and derived from palm.

We do not rely on CofA's (Certificates of Analysis) from any source as we validate the identity of each plant and finished product through High Performance Thin Layer Chromatography to ensure their quality. Many competitors use IR (Infrared) to verify the identity of each plant. This method is cheaper, less accurate and does not have the ability to detect contaminates, such as pesiticides in the herb. We do Organoleptic testing and a full spectrum of Microbiological Testing on each plant and those tests include TVC (Total Viable Count), Yeast and Mold Counts, Coliform Counts, E-coli and Salmonella. Other quality assurance tests performed on our Raw Materials include High Performance Liquid Chromatography, Gas Chromatography and Heavy Metal ICP-MS test.

Our raw materials and finished products go through more testing than many of our competitors to ensure our customers all over the world get consistently high-quality products.

We meet and exceed current government GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) quality standards. Our state of the art production and raw materials storage facilities includes a climate-controlled warehouse and cutting-edge laboratory equipment. Our company receives regular in house audits as well as FDA audits.

The Staff at Wholistic Botanicals L.L.C has years of experience of making natural products that yield results. We have and will continue keeping the highest standards set by the late Dr. John R. Christopher in producing his time-tested formulations. We seek the best in nature, produce the very best and strive to build trusting relationships with our customers. Our commitment to quality and control in every aspect of testing along the manufacturing process reflects our commitment, you can be sure you are getting the highest-quality, best-formulated products available. What we do here is important but the way we do it matters most.
