RevivHair Max gets an upgrade:
RevivHair Max Hair Stimulating Serum now encapsulates its existing primary hair actives Redensyl, Capixyl, and Procapil, in a phospholipid microsphere, which "containerizes" it.
Such microsphere containers form a transfer system that enhances penetration, as they transfer the actives to the capillary bulbs.
With such a liposome we can enhance the delivery of actives to maximize their ability to effectively penetrate, boosting their efficacy, strength and bioavailability.
Since such a container also has a timed-release benefit, since it releases its actives over time compared to non-encapsulated actives.
How are our liposomes designed?
These microscopic vesicles consist of an aqueous center with a phospholipid membrane. Phospholipids contain a glycerol bonded to two fatty acids and a phosphate group with a polar head. The fatty acid portion of this biomolecule is hydrophobic and is located toward the outside of the lipid bilayer, and the phosphate group is hydrophilic and faces the aqueous interior.
These phospholipid walls are identical to those that comprise human cell membranes, and are readily compatible with epidermal surface lipids, the skin’s primary moisture barrier.
When a liposome fuses with epidermal lipids, the epidermal lipid structure becomes overloaded with water and out of equilibrium. To restore equilibrium, the water and phospholipid, as well as the loaded actives, are rapidly churned through the top cell layers of the stratum corneum. Enhanced delivery of the active occurs as it is rapidly carried down through the stratum corneum.
Liposomes’ proven delivery system yields a multitude of benefits; enhancing the penetration of actives yielding increased efficacy, offering time release mechanisms, and protecting and delivering otherwise unstable ingredients.
Liposomes are also known to improve the skin barrier function and decrease transepidermal water loss (TEWL) shortly after application. In addition, phospholipids contain a high content of phosphatidylcholine which has excellent moisturizing properties.
We have decided to keep RevivHair Max at the same cost for now, despite its considerable COGS (Cost of Goods Sold). Its price has not changed over multiple upgrades. We know times can be tough, and we want to keep Max affordable for our diverse customer base.
For the most part, you won't notice a difference compared to the prior RevivHair Max formulation. It's simply slightly more cloudy (but not particularly perceptible), and slightly thicker.

Renowned beauty, lifestyle, and wellness site "a beautiful whim" reviews remarkable TelomErase:
My experience using TelomErase Serum
I used TelomErase on my face for 3 weeks and I applied it in the morning and at bed time. My skin was never irritated or red after using the serum and it was completely absorbed by my skin. After a few minutes of applying the serum, my fingers would easily glide across my skin. There was no tacky or sticky feeling and no residue left on my skin. My skin felt very smooth after each use of the serum.
It was very evident to me that the serum contained hyaluronic acid. I have found that quality skin care products with effective hyaluronic acid are immediately moisturizing and leave my skin feeling very smooth and silky. I have very small pores so I cannot comment on whether or not the product would result in pore tightening. I have not developed fine lines on my face from aging but I do have an undesirable crepey texture underneath my eyes. I have used many different topical products to address the under eye area with partial success. TelomErase did help to plump the skin under my eyes which created temporary tightening of the skin and the product is very moisturizing.
The first product of its kind delivering unparalleled skin rejuvenation benefits
SEPT 30, 2015/PRNEWSWIRE - RevivSerums.com, a San Francisco-based global leader in cosmetic chemistry innovation, introduces a first-of-its-kind skincare cosmetic topical, TelomErase Triple Telomere Targeting Serum.
A conference by Nobel laureate Dr. Elizabeth Blackburn at the recent American Academy of Dermatology conclave in San Francisco underlined the clear correlation between the length and integrity of telomeres (DNA strand endcaps) with overall health & skin condition. TelomErase Serum combines three novel components known to target the support of those structures: Cycloastragenol, Telosomyl and Renovage.
A unique 6-in-1 multi-corrective formula, TelomErase also blends instant, short and long-term acting ingredients into a single powerful serum that can visibly reduce the appearance of sags & bags, dark circles, fine lines, sunspots, redness, pore size & laxity without irritation, downtime or acclimation concerns.
"Over a year in development, TelomErase Serum is the very latest in cosmetic chemistry," said Vance Nesbitt, Director of 'Lotions and Potions' for RevivSerums. "It's the greatest combination of hard-to-source ingredients blending instant-working bioactives along with long-term anti-aging components. Our customers have been asking for such a multi-corrective, at a reasonable price, and we think they'll be elated with the results."
TelomErase incorporates a number of novel cosmetic ingredients sourced worldwide, including:
PEPHA®-TIGHT delivers a fast, instant tightening experience; Eyeseryl® & REGU®-AGE have recognized efficacy against puffy eyebags & dark circles.
SymSitive® 1609 works as a fast-acting “anti-nerve hyper-activator” to calm over-reaction of hypersensitive skin & help prevent stinging & tingling.
aFGF (Recombinant Human acidic Fibroblast Growth Factor) can help remove the appearance of pigmentation, improve complexion, reverse skin damage and tighten skin.
Nano-Lipobelle® DN CoQ10 is a supersaturated double phospholipid nano-emulsion liposome that contains ultra-small particles of highly purified coenzyme Q10, tocopherol (vitamin E) and THD Ascorbate (a novel, potent and expensive form of Vitamin C). Together, they ensure fast penetration into deeper skin layers to maintain activity & potency and become a potent moisturizer, antioxidant & whitening agent.
The serum's base is a sea kelp bioferment with superb skin feel and slip. It can be compared to the famed "miracle broth" found in La Mer® products. Unscented, it is preserved with a safe, worldwide Eco-certified ingredient.

It has been shown recently that caffeine can help prevent hereditary and hormonal hair loss in men and women.
We use a liposomal caffeine in our RevivScalp. "Liposomal" in that the caffeine is encapsulated in a phospholipid to containerize it. With a liposome we can enhance the delivery of caffeine to maximize its ability to effectively penetrate the stratum corneum, boosting its efficacy, strength and bioavailability.
Here are some published scientific articles:
Differential effects of caffeine on hair shaft elongation, matrix and outer root sheath keratinocyte proliferation, and transforming growth factor-β2/ins-like growth factor-1-mediated regulation of the hair cycle in male and female human hair follicles in vitro.
