The Activance Story
The Activance story began in Europe more than 50 years ago. After World War II, when infectious diseases plagued the continent, supplements containing the health-boosting nutrient Rhodanide were given to humans and livestock in order to prevent illnesses from spreading. Unexpectedly, as scientists monitored the effects of the supplement on sheep and mink, they started to notice 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.

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.

Today, following close collaboration with the original researchers, the Hair Health Foundation is proud to manufacture and distribute an enhanced and expanded Activance range worldwide. Building on over 50 years of scientific research, our customers continue to testify that regardless of hair age, type, or condition, Activance’s groundbreaking formula with Rhodanide can give you the power to change your hair.
How Activance Works
Daily stresses can cause constant depletion of Rhodanide. Since 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 with added thickness, strength, and shine.
