SerumScoop: Tips, tricks and news
Announcing a RevivHair Max Stimulating Serum upgrade!
• Now with Prohairin-Beta4:
Studies show that Prohairin-ß4 (Octapeptide-2) acts as a stimulator of hair growth, at least in part by antagonizing the inhibitory effects of something called BMP4 on hair follicle development. It also targets the prevention of depigmentation in hair.
• Additional upgrades for RevivHair Max: new bottle safety seal; separate shrink-wrapped dropper applicator included; larger packaging; SAME LOW PRICE!

There's a growing trend against jar packaging, especially related to skincare cosmetics. Should you avoid those products?
If you use your fingers to apply a product from a jar, there is a small chance of introducing contamination over time that might overwhelm the preservative system and introduce bacteria or mold. That's a slim chance, and mitigated by making sure you don't let the product sit on your shelf too long. Be sure to pay attention to any Use-By/Expiration date or P.A.O. (Period After Opening) warning on the package.
An open jar is also more exposed to oxygen, and can affect antioxidants and other active ingredients and potentially make them less potent. Again, this side effect can be mitigated by making sure you keep the jar sealed, and use the product in a reasonable timeframe once opened.
While our serums are bottled in good-looking and functional treatment pumps and bottles, we don't use fancy glass containers or customized metallic decorative do-dads.
We like to use PET recyclable plastic bottles because they're chemically-resistant, yet not too heavy to add substantially to shipping costs. It save you money.
We understand the desire for glass packaging. We love glass as well, but of course glass is much more fragile, heavier, and more expensive.
We've chosen to package our serums in safe, shatterproof, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly PET plastic bottles, which are approved as safe by the FDA and the International Life Sciences Institute (ILSI). They do not contain BPA.
ANY leaching from the bottle would occur ONLY over a very, very long period of time, and ONLY if the bottle is reused.
We also sell each serum in an ounce-volume that should last a few months, and not require any extra packaging to keep it safe until you fully use it.Plus we want to encourage you to use our serums with consistency and frequency, and not let them sit on the shelf for years at a time. Your hair and skin will thank you.
We also like to use non-opaque bottles so you can see exactly how much product you're getting, and when you're beginning to run low. You would be surprised to disassemble some of our competitors' high-end packaging to find a tiny inner container, and plenty of product left over in what seems to be an "empty" bottle. Simpler is better, and greener!
