  1. This site states that Revita contains 1% ketoconazole. Is it possible to tell me where that information was obtained? I have searched all over to find a legitimate source to support the 1% claim but I have not found any and DS Labs does not disclose the actual amount. I have come across many sites that have said it's 1%, a handful that say 2%, and some that say less than 1%...but but in none of the cases is there any solid info to back it up. Thanks.

    1. Hello, good questions!

      You are correct that this 1% seems somewhat debatable. I can tell you for sure that it contains ketoconazole, and the most popular opinion is that it contains 1%.

      If you look at their website they talk about studies using 1%,, so it seems logical that they indeed use that percentage..However, it is not a conclusive answer.
