7 ingredients

to restore life to processed, dry damaged hair

From the argan nut native to Morocco, Argan Oil is rich in natural antioxidants such as vitamin E and essential fatty acids. Its primary benefit seems to come from its ability to naturally hydrate and to help lock in moisture improving shine & luster and to stop frizziness & fly-aways.

It has been shown to penetrate the hair shaft to increase elasticity and revive hair damage by heat, wind, over styling, and processing. Argan oil coats the hair follicle and can extend the life of color treated hair and reduce hair loss due to breakage.

Avocado Oil is a highly therapeutic oil rich in vitamins A, B1, B2, D, & E, lecithin, panothenic acid, and essential fatty acids. It applies easily offering deep penetration and significant moisture retention together with high nourishing properties.

Batana Oil is a natural tropical emollient oil with a unique, pliable wax-like texture. It provides moisturization to the skin & hair and imparts volume & shine. Batana oil contains high levels of oleic and linoleic acids and is also a good source of tocotrienols and carotenoids.

EVOIL® Almond is a refined vegetable oil blend obtained from the dried kernels of the almond tree. Almonds contain folic acid, α-tocopherol, omega-6 linoleic acid, and zinc. Sweet almond oil also contains vitamins A, B1, B2, B6 with small amounts of vitamins D. In hair care products, it adds shine.

Glycerin is a natural, plant based humectant and moisturizer, designed to bring moisture in and retain it. In hair products, glycerin works to draw moisture onto your hair and provides a barrier to keep the moisture locked in. Glycerin can be used as an ingredient in wash-off or leave in products.

All-natural Kaneka Surfactin lets you create a variety of new textures from oil rich moisturizing creams. They feel like water to clear oil based gels leaving the skin & hair both silky and soft. This low irritation, sustainable, and easily biodegradable emulsifier is made with a natural fermentation process which creates a unique peptide ring structure.

Vitapherole® E-1000 Non-GMO is a natural source of vitamin E from soy. It is also a natural antioxidant widely used in the personal care and cosmetic industries to avoid the negative effects of oxidation.
