Seanol Shampoo Ingredients
Seanol Shampoo includes the following ingredients: Water, Ammonium Laureth Sulfate, Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate, Cocamidropopyl Betaine, Dimethicode, Cocamide MEA, Ecklonia Cava Extract, Cetyl Alcohol, Sodium Chloride, Propylene Glycol, Styrene, Menthol, Methyl Lactate, Glycol Distearate, Citric Acid, Laureth-3, Disodium EDTA, Laureth-23, Alcohol Denat, and Fragrance.
Seanol Shampoo is the patented form of Cava Ecklonia, a marine brown alga, demonstrated in lab studies to have radical scavenging, bactericidal, tyrosinase inhibitory and anti-inflammatory properties.
Clinical research studies on the alga have not been conducted, therefore no guarantee can be given towards any of these benefit claims. Also, due to limited research, potential side effects or precautions are also unknown.
According to the manufacturer, Seanol Shampoo was researched and proven to provide positive results. No empirical evidence is provided to support these claims. The product is not FDA approved. Our readers should however know that the company offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee, refunding both product and shipping costs and that a trial offer is also available.
- Availability of a trial offer;
- The product is both a shampoo and conditioner and it can also be used on colored hair
- The company has a 100% satisfaction guarantee policy (which also covers shipping costs)
- The product’s main ingredient is relatively new and not researched
- Rather expensive
- Lack of consumer testimonials
Without relevant clinical studies on the product or on the product’s main ingredient (the Ecklonia Cava alga) and without consumer reviews’ testimonials available, it is difficult to establish whether or not the product is effective and to what extent the benefit promises made by the producer are true or not.
However, the fact that the manufacturer offers a complete refund to customers not fully satisfied (product cost and shipping charges) and that it has a trial offer may be evidence of the company’s confidence in their product and may constitute a guarantee in its own right.

Seanol is a beauty product offered in the form of an all in one shampoo and conditioner. The company behind it is Advanced Bionutritionals, an American manufacturer located in Georgia.
The formula is particularly advertised to improve the strength, appearance and thickness of the hair. These benefits are the result from its active ingredient which is an extract of Cava Ecklonia seaweed. The plant is currently being researched for its powerful antioxidant benefits and its application as a treatment of high blood pressure, glucose and as an anti-inflammatory ingredient. One of its benefits seems to be in enhancing hair growth and preventing hair loss. Research of this extract in all of the mentioned claims is still in the incipient phase.
Although the formula comes with a free trial offer, the price per bottle is still relatively high. Seanol reviews are not available at this moment.
