Hair is at the root of our self confidence
Our hair is so important. It feeds our self-confidence, defines who we are and how we feel. Have a bad hair day, have a bad day. Have a good hair day have a great day. There is no one that would ever say "I want bad hair".
Hair challenges are all too common. Most men and women will experience some form of significant hair loss during their lifetime and this can have a profound effect on self-esteem, with over 40% of those suffering from hair loss losing confidence and one in three suffering from depression.
Maria's inspirational story
Biotech CEO Maria Halasz had been personally affected by hair loss after she turned 40 and her hair started to thin out. As a scientist, Maria searched for solutions for hair loss, but began to lose hope after trying everything without any success. Serendipitously, on a trip to Japan, Maria encountered technology based on blocking a protein called FGF5 by using naturally sourced ingredients.
Initially impressed with the science, Maria started using the FGF5 blocking products. After a few months, the total hair transformation that she achieved was so impressive she acquired the company. évolis™ was born shortly after.
The évolis™ story
USC scientists discover FGF5 gene, proven to be a crucial regulator of hair growth.
Japanese scientists initiate research into controlling FGF5 and its impact on hair.
Advangen Inc (Japan) releases its first botanical formulation that inhibit FGF5 by launching Lexilis.
Cellmid acquires Advangen Inc, develops évolis products for global markets.
In 2014 Columbia University confirms FGF5 is critical for hair growth in humans.
USA clinical study results released with 82% reduction in hair loss and 44% increase in the rate of growing hair follicles.
évolis Professional reached the US through partnership with premium retailer Neiman Marcus

Blocking FGF5 can deliver your best hair
Hair growth, health and quality are determined by the hair life cycle. Hair loss, hair thinning and hair challenges occur when the hair cycle becomes imbalanced resulting in shorter growth periods, more hair fall and thinning, poor quality hair.
FGF5 is a key player in the hair cycle. Its only role is to signal hair to stop growing. More FGF5 means shorter growth phases, slower growth, more hair fall and thinner poor quality hair.
Blocking FGF5 allows you to take control of the hair cycle by extending the growth phase resulting in more hair growing, less hair resting, and longer, stronger, thicker, healthier hair.
Hair Biology: Real science with real results
Scientists have been seeking solutions to hair cycle shortening for many years. The discovery of FGF5, the key hair cycle stop signal, led our scientists to their unique pursuit of FGF5 blockers to deliver solutions to hair challenges, hair loss and thinning.
Instead of developing synthetic compounds, we looked in nature.
It took over 10 years of dedicated research and screening of thousands of plants to discover the perfect blend of FGF5 inhibitors. We have clinically and dermatologically tested our formulas to ensure maximum performance, backed by strong science with scientifically validated results.

Powerful FGF5 blocking ingredients found in nature
Our quest for solutions to hair cycle dysfunction led us to search for FGF5 blocking ingredients in nature. Scientists at heart, we use cutting edge technology to identify only the most potent FGF5 blocking natural extracts.
We tested over 2000 botanicals and finally found the perfect blend of natural actives, working together to fight FGF5.
Every évolis™ product contains the patented blend of botanicals combined into unique formulations to treat hair from root to tip.
