Artemisia is known for its natural antioxidant properties. Traditionally used by alpine farmers as a home remedy against fever, coughs, and even pneumonia, here it serves to protect the skin and restore balance to the scalp.
Redensyl is composed of the two patented molecules DHQG (dihydroquercetin-glucoside) and EGCG2 (epigallocatechin gallate-glucoside).
DHQG is obtained from the larch tree and activates the division of hair follicle stem cells.
EGCG2 is found in green tea leaves and reduces inflammation of the scalp.
Redensyl is proven to reinvigorate the cells in the follicles responsible for hair growth.
• EGCG2 - Highly potent antioxidant of plant origin Reduces inflammation of scalp
• DHQG - Polyphenol glucoside of plant origin, boosts dermal fibroblast metabolism
• Zinc - Increases strength of hair shaft, known to be associated with hair loss when deficient
• Glycine - Known to favour hair growth
Yes. Redensyl is the newest breakthrough ingredient against hair loss and the best alternative to hair transplantation.
It is a patented active ingredient based on regenerative medicine research. Redensyl targets the hair follicle stem cells to reactivate their division and stimulate their initiation of the anagen (hair growth) phase.
In terms of density, you will start to see results after three months. However, it can take somewhat longer for more visible results, as the hair follicles undergo a relatively long latency period between growth cycles (generally around three months).
Redensyl provides an average of 10,000 with up to 28’000 new hairs after three months.
Redensyl is a patented, active ingredient from the field of regenerative medical research. A synergistic blend of patented molecules, it has been developed to support both the ORSc and dermal papilla cells in the initiation of the hair’s growth phase. Redensyl has been scientifically proven to stimulate hair growth while reducing hair loss
Alopecia cannot be cured. However, it can be treated, and the hair can grow back. The causes of hair loss in men vary widely, but androgenetic alopecia – or genetically inherited, male pattern baldness – is the most common cause.
Anyone can develop alopecia, as there are several possible causes, including hormones (e.g., androgenic alopecia), aging, infection, medication and medical treatment (such as chemotherapy), and lifestyle factors such as stress, exposure to chemicals or UV rays, smoking, or the consumption of alcohol.
In addition, alopecia occurs more often amongst those who have family members with autoimmune disorders such as diabetes, lupus, or thyroid disease. However, these factors will affect different individuals in different ways. For example, not everyone who suffers from stress or has a family history of male pattern baldness will experience the same symptoms. Thus, in most cases, the best way to determine the cause of hair loss is to see a physician.
Most people normally shed 70 to 100 hairs a day. But with about 100,000 hairs on our heads at any one time, this amount of hair loss shouldn’t cause noticeable thinning of the hair. As people age, hair also tends to thin gradually as part of the natural aging process.
Hair loss problems arise when the number of hairs in the anagen phase is lower than those in the telogen phase.
40% of men will have noticeable hair loss (alopecia) by the age of 35. By the of 60, this number rises to 65%.
50 to 75% of women suffer noticeable hair loss by the age of 65.
No matter the underlying cause, hair loss occurs when the initiation of the new anagen (growth) phase is not activated by the ORS (Outer Root Sheath) stem cells.
The most common type of hair loss in men, male pattern baldness is also known as androgenetic alopecia (AGA). Classified by the Hamilton-Norwood scale, male pattern baldness is a result of genetics and typically begins to manifest itself at the crown and/or the frontal hairline. If left untreated, male pattern baldness can quickly advance to partial or total hair loss.
The most common type of hair loss in women, female pattern hair loss is known as androgenetic alopecia (AGA). Classified by the Ludwig Scale, female pattern hair loss is a genetic disorder that causes hair to begin thinning at the crown of the scalp. Although it is uncommon, if left untreated female pattern hair loss can advance to complete baldness at the crown of the head.
There is no cure for male or female pattern baldness, but there are cosmetic (e.g. products from the Revalid® system) and surgical treatments with proved efficacy, which may lead to some improvement.
One option is to use Revalid Regrowth Serum regularly (please read the package information leaflet).
Making changes to your hair care routine and overall lifestyle may also help minimize to the visible effects of hair loss.
Take extra care with your remaining hair. Most people are too rough with their hair. For example, it is advisable to use a comb rather than a brush and to avoid tightly fitting caps or hats. Hair is also more fragile when it's wet, so be especially careful after washing.
There are also shampoos and other hair cosmetics available to make your hair look thicker and fuller.
Furthermore, a short haircut minimizes the contrast between balding and non-balding areas. Long hair has the reverse effect and could make you appear older.
It is also important to include sufficient protein in your diet, especially if you are vegan or vegetarian (hair loss sometimes starts when people give up meat). Ensure that you do not become anaemic by eating plenty of iron-rich foods like liver, eggs and green vegetables.

There are 3 visible aspects of hair aging:
- Hair greying - absence of natural protective pigments in the hair decreases hair protection against UV damage
- Hair thinning and hair loss - decrease in both hair diameter and hair density increase the perception of hair loss
- Loss of hair quality - shaft becomes less resistant and more susceptible to damage and breakage

Revalid Anti-Dandruff Shampoo combines a variety of active ingredients to provide effective and long-lasting relief from dandruff. These restore the scalp’s natural moisture balance and prevent the formation of new flakes. At the same time, it soothes the scalp and provides relieve from unpleasant itchiness.
Piroctone Olamine is an innovative anti-dandruff ingredient that acts to soothe inflammation in the scalp and reduce dandruff. Nettle extract is widely used in herbal traditions and regulates the scalp’s production of sebum. Undecylenic acid has natural anti-fungal properties, and so slows down the production of the yeast Malassezia, relieving itchiness and irritation. Panthenol has been shown to stimulate the proliferation of dermal fibroblasts and accelerate cell turnover. It also aids the hair in absorbing and retaining moisture. As such, this ingredient can help to repair damaged hair and reduce split ends, as well as thickening and increasing the hair’s tensile strength. Allantoin soothes the scalp and promotes cell formation, improving regeneration in the skin of the scalp.
Revalid Anti-Dandruff Shampoo was tolerated extremely well in a dermatological application trial held under clinical conditions. Thanks to its mild formula it is suitable for everyday use.
Dandruff affects approximately 50 percent of the general adult population worldwide at some point in their lives. Although widely spread, dandruff is more prevalent in males than females.
There are two main types of dandruff: dry and oily dandruff.
Dry dandruff is usually preceded by a predisposition to dry skin and can be caused by using heat or harsh products on the hair. Oily dandruff is caused by an overproduction of the yeast Malassezia, which is naturally present on most adult scalps. This can trigger increased sebum production, leading to oily dandruff. Oily dandruff can be recognized by larger flakes than dry dandruff and yellowish colour. Additionally, the following conditions could cause dandruff and require medical consultation:
- Atopic eczema (neurodermatitis), a condition associated with red, itchy skin that is extremely dry.
- Contact dermatitis, which describes an allergic reaction to cosmetics or hair care products, could also trigger dandruff symptoms.
- Finally, seborrheic eczema can lead to severe itching and affect the face as well as the scalp.
Dandruff may have multiple and diverse causes. Many cases of dandruff can be treated using specially formulated hair care products, such as Revalid Anti-Dandruff Shampoo, and preparations or by avoiding products or habits that irritate and/ or dry the scalp, such as:
- Excessive washing
- Using harsh, dehydrating shampoos
- Aggressive styling and colouring techniques
- Use of chemicals and excessive heat
There are also a variety of external causes, especially for dry scalp:
- Hot and dry air tends to stress the scalp
- Equally dry and cold weather can dry the skin
- Hormonal fluctuations
- High levels of stress
- Unbalanced diet habits
- Inadequate hydration
Scratching the scalp tends to aggravate irritation and can lead to infection. Therefore, as difficult as it may be, it is advisable to refrain from scratching as far as possible. If your dandruff symptoms are the result of an underlying medical condition, you should seek help from a medical specialist.
Dandruff itself does not cause hair loss. However, excessive scratching of the scalp to relieve itchiness could weaken the roots of the hair and cause the hair to fall out. Furthermore, the resulting inflammation and accumulation of sebum produced by the hair for protection could block the follicles inhibiting hair growth and resulting in thinning and hair loss.
No, Revalid Anti-Dandruff Shampoo does not contain parabens, sulphates nor silicones. These ingredients have been replaced by substances with the same beneficial effects, which have no negative effects..
