Argan oil
Moisturizing and restructuring effect

Argan oil is extracted from the fruit of the Argania spinosa, a tree native to Morocco belonging to the Sapotaceae family. The oil is comprised of approximately 80% unsaturated fatty acids (34% linoleic, 0.1% linolenic and 46% oleic), 13% palmitic acid, and 5% stearic acid. It is rich in tocopherols, flavonoids, carotenoids and xantofilas, sterols and triterpenes. In addition to their biological and nutritional benefits, these composites lend argan oil a high level of oxidative stability and ensure a long shelf life. Because of the high concentration of essential fatty acids and vitamin E, argan oil provides excellent hydration to hair, promotes cell oxygenation, protects the skin from external aggressions, and neutralizes free radicals. Easily absorbable, argan oil makes hair soft, smooth, and supple. It is an excellent remedy for dry, fragile hair due to its restructuring and deep hydrating properties.

Also known as pro-vitamin B5, panthenol is widely used in shampoos and conditioners; it gives hair shine and is an effective detangler. To carry out these functions, panthenol penetrates the hair, keeping it hydrated, flexible, and full of body. It also helps to reduce split ends.

Jojoba Oil
Soothing and softening action

Jojoba Oil is extracted from the seeds of the Jojoba plant, a shrub native to the deserts in Southern California. Its softening and soothing properties have been known for centuries to the people indigenous to central America, who used it to heal burns and wounds, in addition to using it on their hair and for body massages. Rich in natural tocopherols, it helps fight skin dehydration, leaving the skin soft and elastic. Unlike all other plant oils, jojoba oil is very similar to human sebum. As a result, much of the oil and its ester (isopropyl and alcohol) derivatives are used in cosmetic products, for personal care products, especially for the skin and the hair.
