Ingredients explained


The four ingredients — larix europaea, zinc chloride, glycerin and arginine – which are the four components of Redensyl, a chemical mixture that’s believed to be an effective treatment for hair loss.

Circulation boosters

Arginine may help increase nitric oxide in the blood vessels, increasing blood circulation. Arginine is often used in topical hair loss treatments in an attempt to increase blood circulation. The B vitamin niacin may also help improve blood circulation.


Green tea contains EGCG, which may reduce DHT and perhaps reduces androgen receptor expression. This may be key to reducing male pattern baldness.

DHT blockers

Saw palmetto, pygeum, sesame, nettle and pumpkin are all 5-alpha-reductase inhibitors, which are thought to reduce DHT.
Also contains soy isoflavones, which are thought to reduce DHT.


Rosemary is a herb that has been studied for its effects on hair loss. One study showed the following result:

At the end of the trial period (7 months), 44% of patients in the essential oils group showed improvements in hair regrowth.


This is quite possibly the best natural hair loss topical I’ve seen.
