1 Successful Male Model,
1 Cancer-surviving Entrepreneur,
and 1 Physician/Medical Researcher

We’re a varied and unlikely bunch. Perhaps that’s why the outcome of our research and development broke new ground in the field of hair loss and thinning hair. The result: 20 pure, potent natural ingredients with 15 US patents. 1 honestly effective formula. Today our medical research has become a voice of authority.

As hair loss sufferers ourselves, we were determined to take a holistic approach that was both healthy and high performing.

One of our founders is an engineer and successful male model whose career was at stake when he started losing his hair in his early 20s. He took a popular pharmaceutical, which helped his hair, but drastically hurt his sex life. One of our other founders (and formulators) is a physician and medical researcher who suffered hair loss at an early age due to an eating disorder and stress during medical training. Today she’s a sought-after expert in the field of integrated hair health. Our other founder is a cancer-surviving entrepreneur whose hair health improved when he began taking naturals to treat his rheumatoid arthritis.

Hair loss and poor hair health has impacted nearly everyone in the Nutrafol® family, and we will always be coming from a place of understanding and empathy. We know when it comes to improving poor hair health, there’s a roaring sea of promises out there. And the reality is that it’s up to you to sort out what’s true and what’s false. So take a deeper dive into our science and inform yourself about the mechanics of hair and follicle health before making any decisions.

If you have any questions about any of our research or ingredients, please feel free to call, email or start a live chat with us anytime.

Warmest regards,

Our Founders

Giorgos Tsetis C.E.
C.E.O

A world-renowned model and industrial engineer who began losing his hair in his early twenties, Giorgos began using Finasteride as a preventative to minimize his predisposition to genetic hair loss. For over a decade, Giorgos searched for natural alternatives to a pharmaceutical that negatively impacted his libido for over seven years. Determined to stop using this detrimental drug, he combined his personal passion for health and wellness with his entrepreneurial spirit and co-founded Nutrafol®.

Roland Peralta
President

A beauty and fashion executive with a passion for science and research, Roland struggled with hair loss for over 15 years after being diagnosed with thyroid cancer and rheumatoid arthritis. After trying everything to limited results, he began studying and researching nutraceuticals. In the process, he and his team of doctors and researchers helped formulate Nutrafol’s revolutionary approach to combat hair loss.

Dr. Sophia Kogan
Chief Medical Officer

Dr. Kogan earned her medical degree from SUNY Downstate Medical school in Brooklyn, NY, where she studied Dermatology and completed a Pediatric Dermatology fellowship. Her interests in holistic and integrative medicine led her to study the effects of herbs, nutrition, and stress management on overall wellness, and particularly how they manifest in the health of hair and skin. This holistic approach to patient care directed her attention toward research in the underlying causes of hair thinning and loss, of which most key factors, she discovered, are not yet acknowledged nor addressed by Western medical practitioners today. She has now become an expert consultant in this field, and is an invaluable member of the Nutrafol® team.
