Proteins

 

Keratin Protein
Hair is fundamentally made of Keratin Protein. Our fully plant-derived Keratin Protein offers permanent conditioning to even undamaged hair. Increased strength and sheen are just a few benefits this ingredient offers.

 

Wheat Amino Acids
Small enough to penetrate deep into the hair shaft where it exhibits powerful moisture-binding properties, Wheat amino acids aid in the overall feel and condition of your hair from the inside out.

 

Specific Ingredients

Smoothing – shampoo & conditioner

Fruitbio – Obtained by lactic fermentation of sugar cane, citrus fruits and apple in addition to green tea. Aiding in pH stability, this ingredient helps close the cuticle while smoothing out the hair surface. It also visually improves the look of damaged, frizzy hair.

Crodasone W – Copolymer based on Wheat protein and silicone (silica-sand). Crosslinks on drying to form a conditioning network providing thermal protection and taming the hair shaft’s surface. Noticeably improves feel and shine of damaged hair. Reduces thermal cracks on hair by as much as 77%.

Moisture – shampoo & conditioner – sulfate free

Cromoist WQ – Moisturizing complex consisting of quaternized hydrolyzed Wheat protein and quaternized hydrolyzed Wheat starch. The proportion of protein to starch based on their respective molecular weights has been carefully selected to ensure a high degree of functionality and compatibility. This allows better moisture retention of the cuticle greater than four times it’s weight.

Hydrotriticum WAA – Wheat amino acids with a molecular weight of 150. This allows it to penetrate the hair shaft where it permanently conditions hair. Increasing the level of these amino acids to 2% gives the moisture conditioner 35% more moisture retention than comparable moisture products.

Colour Protect – shampoo & conditioner – sulfate free

UV-283 – Cinnamidopropyltrimonium Chloride is a highly active UVA and UVB absorber. This prevents sun damage and minimizes colour degradation.

Heliogenol – Derived through cold pressing sunflower seed, Heligenol is quickly becoming a staple in colour protection products. Used to prevent free radicals this ingredient will help prevent colour loss and fading.

Weightless (volumizing) – shampoo & conditioner

Polyquaterium-55 – A virtually weightless organic copolymer that strengthens hair, giving it superior lift while remaining resistant to humidity. This gives hair long-lasting volume with no product build-up.

Wheat Protein – This unique hydrating protein offers a combination of moisture balancing and strengthening properties that work synergistically to give hair better body control and a softer feel. The humidity-resistant properties lead to longer lasting volume with virtually no added weight to the cuticle surface.

Botanicals

 

Chamomile
An infusion of Chamomile flowers is used in hair shampoo, especially for fair hair. The flowers are sometimes added to cosmetics as an anti-allergenic agent or made into a salve for use on hemorrhoids and wounds. The dried herb is made into potpourri and herb pillows, and is burned for aromatherapy. It can be applied externally as a wash.

 

Rosemary
Used in hair lotions, a few drops of Rosemary oil massaged into the scalp and rinsed with an infusion of nettles can revitalise hair. In this manner, it can prevent premature baldness and stop dandruff.

 

Jasmine
Jasmine oil is used used for making perfumes and incense. Its flowers are used to flavour Jasmine tea and other herbal or black tea. Its oil is also used in creams, shampoos and soaps. In India, Jasmine flowers are stringed together to make garlands. Women in India wear this flower in their hair. Some communities even use this flower to cover the face of the bridegroom.

 

Lavender
Lavender can be used in aromatherapy. Lavender aids in relaxation and reduces anxiety. It helps prevent oily scalps by controlling the production of sebum and stimulates scalp circulation.

 

Horsetail
Horsetail helps rejuvenate hair, nails and skin while increasing calcium absorption. High in silicic acid and potassium, this is a necessary inclusion for hair products.

 

Hibiscus
Hisbiscus proteins are extracted from its seeds and have exceptional re-energizing moisturizing properties for the scalp.

 

Aloe
Aloe is used externally to treat a number of skin irritations and has antiseptic and antibiotic properties. Its ability to soothe all scalp irritations is widely proclaimed.

 

Dandelion
Dandelions aren’t the pesky weeds they’re known to be. Their flower and seed extract is a natural source of potassium – rich in vitamin A – and found in skin and hair care products.

 

Nettle
Nettle is used in hair care products to help control dandruff with the ability to make hair appear glossier.

 

Sage
Also known as garden meadow, sage has a long tradition of culinary and medicinal use. Its oil contains alpha and beta-thujone, rosmarinic acids, tannins, and flavanoids which help prevent scalp inflammation.

 

Burdock
Contains flavonoid-type antioxidants more powerful than vitamin C. Burdock supports proper hormone balance within the body, which may explain its ability to treat eczema, psoriasis, and other skin irritat ions.

 

Calendula
The ointment of this herb is thought to cure a range of skin irritations and has properties that reduce inflamation. Has been used topically for cradle cap in infants.
