What is Evolis Hair Loss Treatment?

Evolis is a pair of (men's and women's) natural, spray-on hair loss treatment manufactured in Australia by Pharmaceutical company Cellmid Limited. The product's website describes it as "a breakthrough, natural solution to hair loss and hair thinning. Formulated with active botanical extracts which are clinically proven to promote help prevent hair fall and promote hair growth." But just how revolutionary is it and can it really restore hair loss due to genetic balding?

How Does It Work?

Evolis is said to work by inhibiting Fibroblast growth factor 5 (FGF5), a naturally occurring protein found in the body. Restraining FGF5 has been found to extend the Anagen (growth) stage of the hair's growth cycle, resulting in longer hair.

Clinical trials were reportedly carried out by AMA Laboratories, INC, an independent contract research organization in New York specializing in dermatological product testing.  Results of the clinical trials  cited "efficacy in reducing hair loss, increasing hair growth and improving hair recovery and release". Specifically, the manufacturer claims that 9 in 10 users saw less hair loss and grew more hair.

So, What's in It?

Evolis tonic for Men: Purified water, ethanol, butylene glycol, ginkgo biloba extract, eriobotrya japonica leaf extract, panthenyl ethyl ether, swertia chirata extract, glycyrrhetinic acid, citric acid, sodium citrate, maltodextrin

Evolis tonic for Women: Purified water, ethanol, butylene glycol, poterium officinale root extract, rosa multiflora fruit extract, panthenyl ethyl ether, swertia chirata extract, glycyrrhetinic acid, citric acid, sodium citrate, maltodextrin

Is It Rally Effective?

There are many hair growth products on the market claiming to be revolutionary and highly effective. Natural products tend to have a number of similar ingredients that may or may not help hair growth or at least improve overall hair quality. Ultimately, the results produced by these products tend to vary from one individual to another. If they all worked as well as they claimed for everyone, there would already be a hair loss cure.

If you are curious how well Evolis might work for you, the best way is to give it a try. However, in the meantime, anyone suffering from androgenic alopecia should also consider Propecia (for men only) or Rogaine (both men and women). These two drugs are clinically proven, FDA approved and have long histories of delivering real results.
