Apex NanoPharma is a women-owned, private, pre-seed startup cosmeceutical company, conducting drug research and development. Apex NanoPharma was founded by Dr. Al Jasim to hold the patent application. Working from our garage, we invented the first-in-class drug that targets the hair follicle to relax textured hair, as opposed to chemical relaxers applied topically to the hair shaft. Our invention is a plant-based, safe, nano-formulation for oral administration, and is patent pending in the United States and internationally (PCT).

Apex NanoPharma is held by the parent company Apex Medical Device Design LLC. (Apex), incorporated in Delaware in 2016. We moved recently from Washington to Ohio.

Apex Mission & Vision

Our mission is to develop an effective oral nano-drug that relaxes coily and kinky hair by acting on the root  that preserves the customer's natural beauty, and simplifies daily routine. The invention is safe and overcomes the side effects of hair thinning, dryness, and scalp chemical irritation.


Our vision is to be recognized as a leading R&D-based pharmaceutical company in the Black hair-care research market, at the forefront of innovation for patients with unmet cosmeceutical needs. We are committed to be a change maker in this market offerings.

Our business model is to develop the invention based on in-house talents; patent our invention; and further develop the product by business partnership; with the goal to commercialize "CurlRelax™" Gel Caps as the first-in-class nano-pharmaceutical product that optimize coily hair relaxing outcomes and improve customer’s safety quality of life.
