The key ingredients in our Cypress Cedar Balancing Conditioner Bars include:
BTMS-25 (Behentrimonium Methosulfate and Cetearyl Alcohol) is a plant based emulsifier and conditioning agent. It is derived from rapeseed and coconut oils.
Cetyl Alcohol is made up of fatty acids derived from coconut oil and provides softening and hydrating properties to your hair and acts as a thickener.
Panthenol (Provitamin B5) protects hair from styling and environmental damage by locking in moisture and improving its strength and structure. It also adds volume, shine, and luster.
Hydrolyzed Oat Protein is a liquid cosmetic ingredient made from oat protein that has been modified to be water-soluble. It contains two types of proteins - globulins and avenin, both of which are not found in any other grain. Hair products that contain hydrolyzed oats are known to make your hair shiny, reduce breakage, soften and smooth, and repair and protect your hair from damage. Hydrolyzed oat flour protein also forms a coating on the outside layers of hair strands, which can make it look and feel thicker.
Vegetable Glycerin is derived from plant oils (like Shea Butter or Coconut Oil). Glycerin is a humectant, meaning it can actually pull in moisture from the air, keeping hair hydrated and healthy.
Citric Acid is derived from lemons. In addition to naturally lowering the pH in shampoos and conditioners, it also helps remove buildup from your hair and adds shine. The esters formed from Citric Acid create a thin protective coating over the surface of your hair which prevents the loss of moisture from the strands making it look glossy and hydrated.
Kokum Butter is derived from the seeds of the Kokum Tree, and is a firm, mildly scented butter, with a variety of benefits for the hair and scalp. It is rich in essential fatty acids and non-comedogenic, perfect for stimulating the scalp to create healthy hair growth. Kokum helps cell oxygenation, making nutrients more readily available for use by scalp/skin tissues. It also supports and enhances hair elasticity, helping to prevent breakage.
Shea Butter is made from the nuts of Karite tree from West Africa. It is packed with various fatty acids, vitamins A and E, calcium, sodium, iron, magnesium, and zinc, that can seal in moisture, soften hair for easy styling, reduce dryness, prevent split ends, increase shine, and lessen frizz. Moreover, Shea Butter contains triterpenes that trigger collagen production and promote hair growth and antioxidants to protect hair, while its anti-inflammatory properties treat dry, flaky, irritated scalp and reduce dandruff.
Jojoba Oil is very similar to sebum, your skin’s natural oil. This natural moisturizer helps protect the scalp from irritation, conditions hair, moisturizes, fights bacteria, strengthens the hair shaft, thickens strands, and repairs damaged hair.
Argan Oil is mostly used as a moisturizer in hair care because it is full of fatty acids, mainly oleic and linoleic acid. These oils have been shown to lubricate the hair shaft and help your hair maintain moisture. Argan oil also has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that can help prevent or improve scalp conditions that can cause hair loss, like psoriasis and seborrheic dermatitis.
Avocado Oil is a non-greasy oil that is incredibly rich in vitamin E, amino acids, minerals, lecithin and potassium, and has a high content of polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats, to moisturize your hair and add shine, strengthens strands, adds vibrancy, and increases elasticity.
