Biotech hyaluronic acid
Hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid is obtained by hydrolysis of hyaluronic acid with high molecular weight. The hydrolyzed acid is more soluble, does not alter the viscosity of the system, and, due to its low molecular weight (approx. 8000 Dalton), it is easily absorbed by the skin and hair cortex, where it carries out its hydrating function. Hyaluronic acid is one of the key biological components of connective tissue, in particular of the amorphous substance, which is a compact gel, containing collagen fibers and elastin. Its main feature is its ability to link to a high number of water molecules and thereby maintain the plasticity of the tissues and ensure optimal hydration of the scalp and hair.
Sebum regulating action
Copaifera officinalis is a plant of the Fabaceae family (Caesalpinioideae subfamily) native to the Brazilian tropical rainforests. Beta-caryophyllene (sesquiterpenes) is a natural germicide obtained from the essential oil through a special distillation process. It is excellent in the prevention of infections and inflammations. The extract has a soothing and anti-bacterial effect in the case of sebaceous hypersecretion caused by inflammation and fungal infections of the scalp.
Moisturizing and restructuring effect
A precursor of pantothenic acid, panthenol is a natural component of the hair with protective and conditioning properties, giving hair exceptional shine. 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.
The preparation is a copolymer made up of a hydrolysis of proteins (aminoacids and peptides with low molecular weight) and a cationic monomer (ethyltrimonium chloride methacrylate). The hydrolyzed protein, with its ability to condition the inner and outer hair cuticle, in combination with the monomer, creates a cationic derivative that enables the formation of a protective barrier that thickens and restructures the shaft, giving hair volume without weighing it down. Prevents the build-up of static charge and can prevent fly-away hair.
The seed oil from the Bertholletia Excelsa, a botanical species native to the Brazilian rainforest, is rich in selenium, an essential mineral contained in the human body. It has an important anti-oxidant function that protects cells against the damage caused by free radicals. A selenium deficiency in the human body contributes to the development of scalp dandruff. The seed oil from the Bertholletia Excelsa protects the scalp from oxidative damage caused by free radicals and helps combat dandruff.
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.
Vitamin C extract derives from the maceration of the emergent parts of the Lamium album, a herbaceous plant from the Lamiacea family, commonly known as white nettle. The preparation contains essential oil, glucosides, mucilages, amino acids, tannins, saponins, flavonoids, potassium salts, and vitamin C. The extract has astringent and deodorizing properties, as well as a normalizing effect on sebaceous secretion on the scalp.
