It has strong moisturising and regenerative properties - seals, rebuilds the lipid coating, prolongs the effect of antioxidants - vitamins E & A.

  • Jojoba oil (Simmondsia Chinensis oil) - nourishes, softens, moisturises. Accelerates regeneration and soothes inflammation. It soothes and moisturises dandruff, eczema and psoriasis affected skin. Due to its bacteriostatic properties, it extends the shelf life of natural products.
  • Castor Oil (Ricinus Communis (Castor) Oil) - contains vitamin E and omega 6 fatty acids. Highly biocompatible with human skin, what gives it a perfect ability to regenerate, soothe, penetrate and moisturise hair cuticles. Underestimated in care for dry hair, damaged by dyeing, split ends. Gently darkens hair.

  • Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide) - helps to improve hydration, skin elasticity and collagen production. Anti-inflammatory, reduces sebum production. It improves the condition of the hair, reduces excessive hair loss by strengthening the hair roots.

  • Glycerine – exhibits very strong hygroscopic properties hence the moisturising effect. Glycerine naturally protects and it binds water necessary to maintain proper hydration. It has excellent soothing properties, effectively smoothes and improves elasticity. Glycerine penetrates into the deeper parts of the stratum corneum and regulates humidity for up to 24hrs and supports the functioning of skin lipids.

 How to use the conditioner bar?

Using bar conditioner is only slightly different and takes several seconds longer to apply from traditional shampoo, but it's very simple.

Wet the conditioner bar and stroke the bar down your wet hair a few times (starting from ¾ of your lengths to the ends. You will notice your hair is detangling, becomes softer and smoother. Rinse out after 1-3 minutes. Tip: the ingredients in your conditioner bar are concentrated and effective, so you only need very little. You don’t need to apply the conditioner on your scalp, as this might make your hair too heavy and flat.
