Break It Down: What Ingredients Are In Evolve?
One of our most popular blog posts ever, has been our ingredient breakdown of our Revolve products. It makes sense! Everyone want to know what is in the products that they’re putting on and in their bodies. This greater push towards transparency and product knowledge makes us so happy, because since our inception, we have striven to create the most effective, highest-quality natural products on the market.
Because we’re a company all about giving the people what they want, we have decided to do a follow-up post all about what in our Evolve line! Different from the Revolve line that focuses on hair loss, Evolve is all about hair repair and growth. It uses an amino acid complex and botanically-based ingredients to heal and repair the hair cuticle from the inside out. It restores shine, moisture and health to hair instantly, and has been proven to help hair grow longer and stronger. It’s a goldmine for anyone looking for the “Pantene commercial” look, although you’re only going to get it using Zenagen.

Harvested from the European mountainside, this natural, botanical ingredient is the force behind the hair growth acceleration power of Evolve. It’s our not-so-secret weapon to help stimulate the hair follicle for maximum growth capacity. It helps the hair stay in the growth stage for longer (anagen), resulting in less shedding and breaking.
Ginger root extract stimulates and primes the scalp for faster delivery of our nutraceutical ingredients straight to the hair follicle. The ginger root works in conjunction with the patented green tea delivery system to momentarily open up the hair follicle to allow our ingredients to reach the area of the hair structure where the bulk of healing occurs. You need your hair follicle in tip-top shape if you want the strongest, healthiest hair possible, and the ginger root is essential in making that happen.
Grape Seed Extract
The antioxidants found in grape seed extract help sooth and protect the scalp against inflammation. It also works with the amino acids found in Evolve to moisturize and protect the hair from the outside. It aids in giving hair washed with Evolve that shiny, lustrous look that we all crave.
PCAs are organic compounds that function as hair conditioning agents. Evolve contains Sodium PCA, which is known to enhance the appearance and feel of hair, by increasing body and shine, and improving hair texture, especially in cases of damage and over-processing. In our case, they also allow the hair follicle to maintain vibrant, bold color on both color-treated and natural hair.
Alanine is an amino acid that maintains vital moisture levels in the hair cuticle. It locks in the essential amount of moisture for health and shine, while locking out unnecessary moisture and humidity. Alanine really acts as the gate keeper when it comes to keeping moisture levels at optimal performance. If you hair isn’t moisturized enough, it will look dry and dull. If your hair is too moisturized and in a humid climate, then it gives you no control over your style. It’s a tricky balance that Evolve helps to maintain.
This amino acid acts as a shield against unavoidable environmental factors that damage the hair by helping keep the hair cuticle sealed. It’s a body guard against harsh factors that are out of your hands. Examples could include dry, arid climates, heavily polluted cities, dust and debris and more! Your hair is exposed to more than you may think on a daily basis, so it’s important to have a barrier in place.
These are the main players present in Evolve, but below we have included a full list of ingredients for 100% transparency. Enjoy!
