Hair Strengthening Protein
Healthy hair is resistant to breakage because it demonstrates flexibility within its cortex as well as maintaining cuticle integrity. Through daily grooming and styling, hair is subjected to tensile forces, bending stresses and cuticle abrasion that ultimately cause a weakening of the hair fiber itself in addition to damaging the cuticle layer.
Increasing the strength of the hair is a two-fold strategy that must address both its inner flexibility along with the integrity of its surface layer. With an intermediate-range molecular weight of 1800, Keravis™ (INCI: Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein PG-Propyl Silanetriol) addresses both of these issues by simultaneously penetrating the hair shaft to optimize moisture content and plasticity of the hair, while also forming a cross-linking film that coats the hair to lubricate, protect and reinforce the cuticle. Hair treated with the Keravis strengthening active shows a proven increase in hair strength - triple the strength of damaged hair compared to a control conditioner. Treated hair can demonstrate the increased resilience, flexibility and reduced breakage seen in healthy hair.
RevivHair Stimulating Conditioner utilizes this patented protein to address the three fundamental parameters of hair strength: tensile properties, bending modulus and cuticle abrasion.

UV exposure isn't the only cause of premature skin aging. Pollution contributes. Here's how to thwart that.
Pollution, ozone, dirt and chemicals from vehicle emissions, plants, factories, cigarette smoke, etc., are seen by consumers as the second largest cause of skin, scalp and hair problems across the globe; the first is lack of sleep.*
HA7X Multi-Molecular Hydrator Serum is the first U.S. skincare product to contain award-winning Neurophroline®, the "neuro-soothing, anti-stress, feel-good, anti-pollution" active derived from the Terephrosia Purpurea plant, Gold winner of the In-Cosmetics Innovation Zone.
Clinical efficacy on volunteers with stressed skin (polluted air):
The clinical efficacy of Neurophroline was evaluated in a double blind test versus placebo under dermatological control. Twenty four volunteers aged 40 to 67 years old took part in the study (average age: 53 ± 2years).
The clinical test was run during summer time, in skin-stressing conditions as the volunteers where living in an geographical area known to have significant atmospheric pollution (measured in ten air quality control stations around the location of the clinical test during the testing period).
The volunteers applied twice a day the placebo or the cream containing Neurophroline at 2% on the most sensitive skin part of their face: under their eyes. The clinical assessment was run for one month.
Pollution by PM10 and ozone was always very close to the recommended limits and exceeded it at some periods. Therefore the stress was very intense during the testing period.
Results: Neurophroline significantly enhances the skin luminosity of volunteers with stressed skin in 2 weeks, with up to +57% improvement in one month.
Neurophroline also shows very rapid results at improving the global skin color around the eye. Skin redness is significantly reduced by 2.4 times after 28 days, and the skin’s color is significantly improved by 99% during the same period of time:

A customer emailed a great question:
"How do your serums penetrate the skin efficiently?"
Regarding skin penetration, our serums contain a number of specialized ingredients that boost the effectiveness of penetration.
For example, our popular Ultimate Serum with Stem Cells, Growth Factors & Peptides utilize liposomes (minute spherical sacs of phospholipid molecules) to boost penetration. Similarly, our remarkable TelomErase 6-in-1 Multi-Corrective Serum, and HA7X Multi-Molecular Hydrator Serum also contain liposomes.
We also select the highest quality active ingredients, especially ones known for their low (to very low) molecular weight. Having a low molecular weight, measured in Daltons, can assist with penetration.
In addition, many of our ingredients are formed into microemulsions and nanoemulsions, which are excellent skin penetrating vehicles.
