What Is Activance
Activance is the latest advancement in hair cosmeceuticals to revive
thinning, damaged and lifeless hair, for both men and women.
RHODANIDE: THE ESSENTIAL
& VITAL NUTRIENT
Activance contains rhodanide a natural and vital molecule found in all
living cells (plants, animals and human life) including human hair.
In 1993 rhodanide was classified a vitaminoid (vitamin like substance).
Similar to vitamins rhodanide plays an essential and indispensable role
in cellular activities and acts as a natural antioxidant / purifying
Reduced supply or increased demand of rhodanide can lead to symptoms of
Research studies have shown that thinning, dry, damaged and coloured
hair has significantly lower level of rhodanide than healthy, shiny
Boosting rhodanide levels revives hair and lengthens the growing cycle,
immediately improving strength, shine and growth of each hair.
WHY IS ACTIVANCE
It's the quick and easy-to-use solution that will deliver visible
Developed and patented by German scientists after 50 years of research
and 6 years of clinical studies, Activance is the latest advancement in
hair cosmeceuticals and the only rhodanide treatment available.
WHY DO I NEED ACTIVANCE?
Your hair's rhodanide levels are constantly depleted by day-to-day
washing, styling, chemical treatments, stress, health conditions, as
well as environmental conditions such as wind and sun damage. This can
leave your hair looking dull and lifelss, and eventually lead to it
falling out prematurely.
By using Activance, you can instantly restore these rhodanide levels and
enjoy thicker, shinier, stronger, easier-to-manage hair.
TRUSTED THROUGHOUT EUROPE
When introduced into Europe in the late 1990's, Activance became the
market leader within 15 months.
Millions of people around the world now enjoy the beneifts of the vital
hair care nutrient, Rhodanide.
SAFE & NATURAL FOR ALL
Because Activance contains natural nutrients, it can be used per
directions by men, women (including pregnant and feeding mothers) and
It is common knowledge cats and dogs care for their fur/hair using their
saliva and when they stop caring for it their fur/hair loses shine.
Scientists later found saliva contains the highest level of rhodanide
among all body fluids.
For generations, applying egg yolk to washed hair was a well known old
wives tale for beautifying hair. Scientists later found egg yolks are
the richest source of rhodanide in common food.
Following World War II, people were under-nourished, suffering from
extreme shortage of protein and vitamin rich nutrients (i.e. meat and
vegetables - a direct and indirect source of rhodanide), resulting in an
increase in infectious disease and mortality. As modern antibiotics were
not available at the time; products containing rhodanide (such as
Orthromin) were given to humans and domestic animals as a way to combat
the spread of infectious disease to increase resistance and survival.
Rhodanide enriched food was
later successfully given to athletes of former East Germany to
increase resistance to disease and endurance
Sheep and mink showed
unexpected but positive side effects of, increased wool production,
shine and enhanced fur quality after being fed a rhodanide enriched
The above important
observations led scientists to research effects of rhodanide on hair.
For more than half a century German & European Scientists extensivley
researched rhodanide; it's biological significance has been documented
in over 200 scientific publications worldwide.
In the late 1990's European scientists successfully stabilised and
patented Activance with rhodanide to revive thinning, damaged lifeless
hair for both men and women.
Activance contains rhodanide; which consists of nitrogen, carbon and
sulphur elements (sulphur is nick-named the Ďbeauty mineralí because it
keeps hair shiny and healthy).
Hair loses on average 36% of its natural rhodanide level with each
The scalp needs several days to replenish the lost rhodanide, which will
automatically lead to rhodanide deficiency if hair is washed daily.
A twice weekly application of rhodanide is sufficient for the hair to
establish a rhodanide depot.
Rhodanide, when applied topically to the scalp penetrates along the hair
shaft to the roots of the hair.
Rhodanide is a very active anion with different bonding capabilities,
enabling participation in many biochemical communications and reaction
It strengthens and stabilizes the sulphur-hydrogen bonds of the keratin
enabling formation of highly-netted keratin connections between cuticle
layers and cortex, thus increasing the resistance of keratin structures
i.e. strengthening hair from within, resulting in, stable, stronger,
more elastic hair, with increased volume, improved manageability and
resistance to damage.
Stronger bonding between hair cuticle and cortex also allows improved
cuticle scale alignment protecting cortex from damaging external
Proper alignment of hair cuticle scales leaves hair shinier due to
improved light reflection.
The natural shine of hair
does not result from any topically applied substance but derives from
the light reflection of well aligned cuticle scales on the outer layer
of the hair.
If cuticle scales are damaged, or not in place the hair lacks protection
from all external influences e.g. like a house without a roof. As a
natural moisturizing factor rhodanide improves the water binding
capability of hair; increasing moisture content by 50%, resulting in an
improvement in the hairís physio-chemical qualities such as volume,
elasticity, strength and manageability. This is a lasting effect, since
hair treated with rhodanide and dried over a period of 24 hours has a
higher mass than untreated hair.
Hair remains strong and resistant to mechanical stress and tensile
strength is significantly higher compared with untreated hair.
