Sophia Kogan, MD

Dr. Sophia Kogan, M.D. is the co-founder and Chief Medical Advisor of Nutrafol, the first clinically effective hair wellness supplement to use medical-grade, bio-optimized ingredients to multi-target the root causes of hair thinning.

Dr. Kogan earned her medical degree from SUNY Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn, NY. She did residency training at Tufts New England Medical Center and at SUNY Downstate Medical Center, where she completed a research fellowship in pediatric dermatology.

In search for answers on issues of her own health and hair thinning during stressful times of medical school and residency, Dr. Kogan discovered the benefits of an integrative approach with botanicals. She has dedicated years of study on the effects of herbs, nutrition, and stress management on overall wellness, and particularly how they manifest in the health of hair.

In 2015, she partnered with Giorgos Tsetis and Roland Peralta to co-found Nutrafol, a multi-targeted nutraceutical patented formulation that uses a blend of bio-optimized botanicals to address key underlying factors of hair issues - including stress, hormones and gut health.
