Celebrating Women in Science

Celebrating Women in Science

Science is our passion at Revivogen. It was our scientific research on hormones and hair loss that helped him discover a solution that inhibits DHT on the scalp. Rigorous research on ingredients and delivery systems has created a system that helps thousands of men and women improve their hair density. 

To honor International Women's Day, we want to celebrate the impressive contributions of women in science throughout history.

Alice Ball was the first woman and African American to receive a Master's degree from University of Hawaii. As a chemist, she developed a treatment for leprosy from the oil of the Chaulmoogra tree. It was considered the most effective treatment for over 20 years.

Today's Bluetooth and Wi-Fi technology can be traced back to Hedy Lamarr developed a radio guidance system for Allied torpedoes with George Antheil during World War II. The system could not be tracked or jammed using spread spectrum and frequency hopping technology. 

Marie Curie is the only woman to win the Nobel Prize twice. Marie made numerous contributions to science. Well known for developing the theory of radioactivity, she also designed mobile radiography units used by field hospitals during World War I to take xrays of wounded soldiers.

And, most significant to us here at Revivogen, we are wowed by the contributions of Daisy Maude Orleman RobinsonHer achievements included being the first woman dermatologist to present a case at a dermatologic meeting, to publish a scholarly paper in dermatology, to present a case at an international dermatology meeting, and to have a documented clinical practice in dermatology in the United States. After service in the US Army Medical Corps during World War I, she had a distinguished career in the US Public Health Service, where she devoted her career to the eradication of venereal diseases and the development of sex education programs, particularly for young women.

These are just a few of the many women to celebrate in the scientific fields. Take a moment to honor the brilliant women in your life today, and take a moment to treat yourself to the science-fueled treatment that improves thinning hair.
