Functions:

Myo-Inositol is an ingredient often associated with Vitamin B, even considered part of the Vitamin B complex. Myo-Inositol is the most prominent naturally occurring form of Inositol, which is often referred to as Vitamin B8. However, because Inositol can be synthesized naturally within the human body, it is not technically classified as a vitamin.

Nonetheless, Myo-Inositol is useful in cosmetic and beauty products because of its potential ability to provide cell membrane maintenance (Wikipedia). It has also been shown to strengthen the cells of the hair, helping it to retain moisture, serving as a humectant and anti-static agent. It's Vitamin B-like properties allow it to aid in hair growth, and lower levels can lead to hair loss and skin dryness, even eczema (Source). It can be taken as a supplement, and is found in beans, peas, brown rice, wheat bran and nuts.

Safety Measures/Side Effects:

Myo-Inositol is considered a safe ingredient in cosmetics and beauty products, and is FDA approved. It received the Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) rating from the FDA and was given a 90% safety rating from the EWG.
