What is biotin (vitamin B8)?
There are many vitamins essential to ensure the proper functioning of the body, biotin, or vitamin B8, is one of them.
It is an organic substance and a non-caloric water-soluble vitamin which belongs to the B vitamin family. Sometimes called vitamin H, it is present in the human body and produced naturally by the microbiota of the intestinal flora.

The role of biotin, or vitamin B8, is essential for health. It has the effect of regulating the concentration of sugar in the blood, and contributes to the normal functioning of the nervous system as well as the metabolism of lipids, proteins and carbohydrates. Biotin also participates in the synthesis of other vitamins such as vitamin B9 and vitamin B12.
In addition to being a health ally, vitamin B8 is a solid beauty ally known to preserve strong, healthy hair. In particular, it allows:
- Stimulate hair growth: biotin promotes blood circulation to the scalp, thus providing all the nutrients essential for hair growth .
- Prevent seasonal hair loss: biotin helps regulate seborrhea (excessive secretion of sebum produced by the sebaceous glands of the skin) which has the effect of slowing down hair loss.
- Strengthen hair fiber: Vitamin B8 helps the body produce keratin , a basic protein and one of the building blocks of skin, nails and hair . Regular intake of biotin therefore makes the hair fiber more elastic and more robust. It also improves the texture and density of the hair.
- Fight against dull hair: biotin restores energy, shine and vitality to hair.
