Advanced Skin and Hair, Inc. announces new improvements to the Revivogen natural anti-DHT formula for hair loss and thinning hair.
Feb. 26, 2007 – Los Angeles, CA, USA
In keeping with our commitment to provide the most powerful products for androgenic alopecia using scientifically proven natural ingredients, Advanced Skin and Hair, Inc. announces the addition of two new powerful anti-DHT ingredients to the Revivogen Scalp Therapy formula. According to a study published in Biochemistry and Pharmacology Journal, among multiple natural ingredients that have the potential to inhibit 5-alpha-reductase activity, octyl gallate and dodecyl gallate have the greatest inhibition of 5-alpha-reductase activity in both cell-free and whole cell assays in vitro. The significance of this finding is that octyl gallate and dodecyl gallate not only inhibit both forms of 5-alpha-reductase enzyme (type I and type II), but more importantly, they can penetrate the cell membrane and inhibit the enzyme while the cells are in culture. Since 95% of DHT is produced inside the cell, the ability of these ingredients to enter intact living cells is vital for effective inhibition of 5-alpha-reductase enzyme and reducing DHT production.
After further investigation and testing, octyl gallate and dodecyl gallate were proven to be safe, effective and enhance the results of the previous Revivogen formula. These newly added ingredients make Revivogen the only product that contains the most powerful and scientifically proven natural anti-DHT ingredients. In addition, Revivogen contains other natural ingredients proven to block the androgen receptors and stimulate the hair follicle?s growth, providing a comprehensive natural solution for those suffering from hair loss.
The new formula has been available and shipped to all customers and vendors since September 2006. However, the new changes are not reflected in the product packaging as of yet.
Revivogen was formulated by board-certified dermatologist Alex Khadavi, MD. Clearogen, another product developed by Dr. Khadavi for treatment of hormonal acne, contains the same natural anti-DHT ingredients.
