"I was looking for something different. Something that worked with the body — because, after 30 years of being a healthcare practitioner, I believe in working with the body, not against it.” - Arthur Chan, founder of Activance
The Activance story begins in Europe more than 50 years ago.
Europe was in a shocking state after World War II, with infectious diseases ripping through the continent.
So supplements with the health-boosting nutrient Rhodanide were given to humans and livestock in order to prevent illnesses from spreading.
Unexpectedly, scientists noticed significant changes to the animals’ coats, including increased wool production, quality and shine.
Struck by these mysterious side effects, researchers from leading German universities began to investigate.
They discovered that, in fact, Rhodanide is so essential to the biology of both animal and human hair that our own bodies naturally produce it.
They also found that just as vitamin D has uses in many different parts of the body, Rhodanide performs several vital functions at once, including strengthening hair, aiding in hair follicle metabolism and fighting off damaging chemicals and free radicals.
So work continued, and with over 50 years of scientific research European scientists developed the world’s first formula aimed at total hair health: Activance.
After more than half a century of research into Rhodanide’s nurturing effect on hair, European scientists developed the world’s first formula aimed at total hair health: Activance.
Rhodanide is a vital nutrient that our bodies produce naturally to keep hair healthy and strong, rhodanide deficiency accelerates hair damage, thinning and hair loss.
The biological significance of Rhodanide (also known as thiocyanate) has been extensively documented in scientific research.
A small but powerful molecule, Rhodanide consists of five essential elements that are the building blocks for molecules in all life forms: carbon, nitrogen, sulphur, oxygen, and hydrogen.
When it comes to improving your hair, only Activance effectively harnesses the nurturing power of Rhodanide to transform hair from the inside out. The result? Naturally healthier-looking hair.
