Let’s Talk About Our Ingredients

When you put something in your hair, you want to know what it’s going to do. 

With so many products on the market, it’s important to understand which products work and what makes Revela’s Hair Revival Serum different from competitors.  

Current hair care products feature the same ingredients, and a lot of them don’t work - even going so far as to harm your hair. Ingredients like waxes or fragrances can even cause breakage. 

Our mission is simple. We create more effective products. We’ve developed a product that harnesses new ingredients - a serum that works, supporting your hair to appear fuller and thicker and healthier. 

Revela is founded on the belief that new, more effective ingredients can be discovered to bring you products with more targeted efficacy. When it comes to performance, we’re not willing to settle. We’re here to innovate and create better products - and that’s what we’ve done with our Revela Hair Serum.

Revela’s New Ingredient 

Our proprietary, medical-grade lead ingredient was discovered through our rigorous artificial intelligence search process for the highest level of efficacy to support hair fullness & thickness. Components of the lead ingredient are commonly found in other natural products like mushroom and mustard plants. 

Aloe Barbadensis Leaf juice

Better known as Aloe vera, this ingredient has great moisturizing and healing properties. It soothes the skin with an abundance of beneficial vitamins, amino acids, and minerals.


Biotin is a B vitamin that helps metabolism, and promotes normal hair growth. A deficiency of biotin can lead to hair loss, so adding it to our product helps regulate the hair growth process.


Caffeine can help hair grow thicker and faster. It triggers follicle growth in the body and blocks a sex hormone called DHT which is known to shrink hair follicles. This leaves hair strong and healthy. This aids in combatting hair loss from aging and androgenetic alopecia.


Ethylhexylglycerin is a type of emollient and common skin conditioning agent. It also has beneficial preservative effects and when used in conjunction with phenoxyethanol, has improved antimicrobial effects. 

This is one of our more unique ingredients, used to soften and condition the hair. When paired with phenoxyethanol, it is also antimicrobial, thus protecting your hair and keeping it cleaned.

Folic Acid

Folic acid is a form of Vitamin B9, and is essential in healthy cell growth. This regulates and maintains healthy hair growth.


Glycerin is a moisturizing agent that increases skin hydration. It aids in softening dry, flaky skin and protects the top layer of skin.


While Inositol is commonly referred to as a vitamin, it’s actually a sugar. A deficiency in inositol could induce alopecia-like hair loss. When sufficiently present in the body, it has been shown to help the growth rate of hair and strengthen new strands as they grow and could even help with trichotillomania. 

Inositol is a sugar that when sufficiently present in the body helps the growth rate of hair. This nourishing ingredient strengthens and lengthens new strands as they grow. This can help treat trichotillomania. Further, a lack of inositol can induce alopecia-like hair loss.


L-arginine is an amino acid that enhances Nitric Oxide in our bodies, which signals growth to hair follicles and increases blood flow. Further, it allows for more blood circulation to reach the skin and hair. This promotes maintenance and health within hair growth.


Found in the inner part of the hair root, L-Lysine has a heavy influence on the shape and volume of hair. L-Lysine is an amino acid that stabilizes and strengthens collagen in the skin. Without consuming enough foods that contain this amino acid, our body will prioritize essential tissues and leave the scalp deficient.


L-methionine is a sulfur-containing essential amino acid that helps with the repair and maintenance of keratin in the hair. This helps with hair growth and maintenance. It also has antioxidant properties that can help with ageing effects like graying.


This ingredient helps fight itchy scalps and aids the regrowth of hair in dry, rough patches of skin. N-Acetylcysteine can also be used to treat hair loss caused by compulsive disorders like trichotillomania.


Niacin, a form of vitamin B3, improves blood circulation and brings oxygen and other nutrients to the hair follicle allowing hair to grow fuller and thicker. Additionally, Niacin plays an important role in providing energy for cell growth and metabolism pathways in the body. Studies have even shown that it can help with female pattern alopecia. 

Vitamin B5

Vitamin B5, or Pantothenic acid, is necessary to aid in metabolism. It can help with regulating hair growth by providing cells energy and increasing nutrition.


Phenoxyethanol is a widely used preservative and stabilizer that keeps products effective for longer. It is an effective antimicrobial against several types of harmful bacteria and yeasts while leaving your skin unharmed.

Green Apple Extract

Pyrus Malus -or green apple extract- contains many natural nutrients that have been scientifically proven to help with hair health. It can promote follicle cell growth, increase keratin production, and induce the growth phase of hair.

Saw Palmetto Extract

Extracted from the serenoa serrulata plant, saw palmetto extract works by inhibiting the production of dihydrotestosterone (DHT), the key contributing factor to the onset and progression of hair loss. This is also an antioxidant that has anti-inflammatory properties.

Vitamin B1

Thiamine HCl, or vitamin B1, is an antioxidant that helps regulate healthy hair.

Vitamin E

Tocopheryl Acetate, or Vitamin E, is an antioxidant. Antioxidants can protect cells from damage and are also important for immune health.

Xanthan Gum

Xanthan gum is a versatile ingredient that improves the texture and stability of beauty products. 

Corn Propanediol

Corn propanediol, also known as fermented corn starch extract, is a great moisturizer for the hair due to its humectant properties. It is highly sustainable, has high purity, no skin irritation or sensitization, and improves texture of topicals. This is one of our more unique ingredients.

How does Revela discover these new ingredients?

We start by determining what ingredients in current products work towards achieving a specific goal. After studying the characteristics of those ingredients, we use our proprietary AI search engine to scan a database of several billion molecules to find even more effective ingredients that can more effectively address the issue at hand, in this case, hair thinning/loss for women. 

Our visionary team has backgrounds in chemical engineering, immunology, machine learning, and consumer goods. Together, we share a passion of redefining expectations for beauty and wellness through rigorous innovation.
