JW Holdings signed a memorandum of understanding with light emitting diode (LED) maker IL Science in a move to target global alopecia market, the company said Wednesday.
 
In the deal, JW Holdings will be granted the rights to sell IL Science’s Follinic haircare brand products in countries excluding Korea. IL Science will offer JW Holdings technical support as well as data on how to register and sell the products in overseas.

The two companies will cooperate on selling Follinic’s Micro-current LED Scalp Care Device, which is a device used for the prevention and treatment of alopecia, as well as the brand's various haircare products, like Premium Scalp Shampoo, in foreign countries.  
 
JW Holdings said the deal will help the company "target the global alopecia market by creating synergy effects with various alopecia treatment it owns."
 
“With the growing interest in alopecia globally, the markets of related medical devices and functional products have been surging recently,” said Han Seong-gwon, CEO of JW Holdings. “With our global business infrastructure, we will offer various alopecia care products from Follinic to global customers.”
