Weightless, invisible mousse for the scalp and hair roots that helps bolster the nutrients needed to stimulate the skin and hair’s own natural sun protection capabilities and help minimize the harmful effects of UV light during incidental sun exposure. Safe for all hair types, in particular color-treated hair, and formulated to leave scalp hydrated, and tresses soft, silky, and lustrous.
Dispense mousse into palm and spread evenly through fingers. With wet or dry hair, apply directly on the scalp, and specifically along the hair line and on roots. Apply in the morning and reapply throughout the day as necessary. Avoid contact with eyes; rinse hands after application.

What makes our mousse unique?
Featuring our proprietary and scientifically formulated Incidental sun™ system, Incidental Sun Scalp & Hair Mousse is the first and only skincare for scalp and hair that addresses the effects of UV and sunlight on the hair and scalp every day, year-round. The lightweight mousse quickly melts into the scalp and hair, dries out fast and leaves no residue.
Why you need it
Most of us don’t think too much about protecting our hair and scalp from cumulative and sometimes excessive exposure to sunlight, but we should be. The scalp and hair are constantly exposed to UV rays and other environmental stressors—usually without adequate or any protection. The result is accumulated damage that weakens the scalp’s thin skin and the hair itself, leaving both more fragile and vulnerable to photodamage. Like everywhere else on the body, scalp sunburns occur when the skin is overexposed to burning UVB rays, and studies suggest that a significant number of melanomas (the most dangerous form of skin cancer) occur on the scalp. The consequence on hair is photobleaching, a gradual deterioration of the natural pigment in the hair called melanin. Or in other words, discolored hair.
Combined, the effects of year-round UVA exposure and spring-summer UVB exposure creates constant, consistent deterioration of the scalp’s skin barrier and of the proteins naturally present in hair which accelerates hair thinning, and ultimately, can contribute to hair loss.
Q. Is the mousse considered a sunscreen for scalp and hair?
None of the Skinergies products are sunscreens or have sunscreen properties, per the official FDA definition. Our Hair & Scalp Mousse is a lightweight haircare product that contains a proprietary blend of botanicals, marine extracts, and clinically-advanced peptides to help fight the effects of UV rays, photoaging and photobleaching on the hair and scalp. With continued use, Hair & Scalp Mousse supports the restoration of the scalp’s skin and of the hair’s natural sun defense capabilities.
Q. What is melanin in the mousse?
Melanin is the natural pigment that not only gives our eyes, skin and hair its color, but also has photoprotection and repair properties. Infusing the scalp and hair with additional (and all natural) melanin is a way to help the scalp and hair make up for the inevitable loss of melanin caused by overexposure to UV rays, specifically during incidental, passive sun exposure. By supplementing the existing melanin, it helps keeping the scalp and hair shaft protected against photodamage, including photobleaching.
Q. What is photobleaching?
Melanin, a pigment also present in our skin and eyes, is the natural photoprotectant in hair. The lighter your natural hair color, the less pigment (melanin) in your hair, and consequently the less natural protection from UV rays.
UV radiations and visible light cause the degradation of melanin in the hair shaft, a phenomenon called photo-bleaching. That’s why our hair lightens in the summer and it’s not exactly as good as we think it is. Hair color change is mostly the responsibility of UVA rays – the same rays that cause photo-aging on our skin.
