Nutreve was founded in 2005 to develop and market home use hair loss solutions for men and women. Nutreve’s founders have many years experience in the hair loss industry. The company spent four years researching and developing the Nutreve Hair Therapy Laser (NPHTL) to address the needs of men and women with early and onset hair loss problems. The NPHTL is state-of-the-art-technology featuring 35 true laser diodes powered by Nutreve’s exclusive Pulsed Wave Technology (PWT). Several scientific studies including a NASA study clearly point the effectiveness of PWT achieving better cellular response that constant wave technology. Although more expansive to develop and build than our competitors devices, the NPHTL is clearly more effective which meets Nutreve’s goals in producing our product.
Nutreve International was founded with one goal – Providing affordable, high quality, professional home use hair loss solutions for Men and Women. Our motto . . . Science, Technology and the Power of Nature drives Nutreve’s philosophy of excellence.
What Makes Nutreve International Different?
Nutreve International was founded in 2005 to expand on the prior experience of its founders in concert with industry experts to develop the most effective hand-held device in the industry. As opposed to other providers of products and services that attempt to provide a one stop solution to many human needs, Nutreve’s policy is to provide the best possible solutions in highly focused areas such as Hair Loss and Low Level Light Therapy. Nutreve’s solutions take significant time to develop, test and bring to market. Only the highest quality components are used in all Nutreve products. Cost is not a determining factor in the selection of design, components and production as it is with many producers. We are a small company and intend to stay that way. Nutreve has no interest in growing into a large multi-national company providing a laundry list of products. Nutreve will continue to pursue its policy of innovative and narrowly focused products and services developed for specific human needs.
