Recognition Criteria

The AHRS Seal of Recognition Program is strictly voluntary. In order to be granted the Seal, there are certain requirements that must be met. The requirements vary depending on the product type. Every product is evaluated for specific attributes selected by the company, by either an independent, 3rd party testing laboratory and/or by the AHRS Seal Scientific Review Panel. The program is available to products, treatments, or medications that affect hair growth, hair shaft characteristics, or the condition of the scalp.

The Seal is awarded for up to a two-year period. Continued use of a Seal shall require completion of a renewal application and payment of applicable fees. AHRS may withdraw recognition of a Seal at any time upon the occurrence of one or more events described herein. The Seal of Recognition does not constitute an endorsement by AHRS, and it may not be used in connection with an accepted product in any way that would imply such endorsement.
