Let’s Talk About Our Ingredients

When you put something in your hair, and with so many products on the market, it’s important to understand which products work and what makes our products at Revela different from everything else.  

Our mission is simple. We create more effective products. We’ve developed a product that harnesses a breakthrough, proprietary molecule, ProCelinyl™, which is the lead ingredient in Revela’s Hair Revival Serum

However, we have a powerful supporting cast of other ingredients to help mitigate the appearance of hair loss. Each ingredient was carefully researched and selected based on previous scientific research to bring you the best results.

A breakdown of our key ingredients

  • ProCelinyl™ 
  • Caffeine 
  • Saw Palmetto
  • Aloe Vera
  • Inositol
  • Corn Propanediol
  • Glycerin
  • Green Apple Extract
  • N-Acetylcysteine
  • Pantothenic Acid   


Re-awaken your roots. ProCelinyl is the world’s first and only ingredient that was discovered by artificial intelligence and validated by laboratory and clinical studies to directly target hair follicle health. It was discovered through a rigorous combination of laboratory testing and artificial intelligence to search through millions of ingredients until we found the most effective molecule for hair follicle health: ProCelinyl™


Caffeine penetrates and stimulates the har follicle, allowing hair to grow thicker and faster. It has also been shown to help block the effects of a hormone called DHT, which is known to shrink follicles. In a 2007 study, it promoted hair shaft elongation, resulting in longer, wider hair roots, and also prolonged anagen duration, the hair growth stage.

Saw Palmetto

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

Aloe Vera

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


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.


Propanediol, or fermented corn starch extract, is a great moisturizer for the hair due to its humectant properties.


Glycerin is a moisturizing agent that pulls water from the air and lower layers of skin to the top layer of skin. It increases skin hydration and refreshes the skin surface. Glycerin can also soften dry, flaky skin.

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.


N-Acetylcysteine (or NAC) is an ingredient that can help with an itchy scalp, It also aids the regrowth of hair in dry, rough patches of skin.


Pantothenic Acid

Vitamin B5, or pantothenic acid, is a precursor to coenzyme A (CoA), an essential molecule for metabolism.
