Botanical Shine™ Conditioner for fine or oily hair

Naturally active ingredients

Blue Seakale Extract (Crambe maritima)
Used in our Botanical Shine™ Conditioners for its protective properties, we hand-harvest our blue seakale from sustainable plantations in Brittany, France, where the cabbage-like leaves of the plant are dried then extracted to create our antioxidant-rich ingredient.
Black Cohosh Root Extract (Cimicifuga racemosa)
Used in our Botanical Shine™ Conditioner for fine or oily hair for its inherent moisturising and softening properties, black cohosh is native to Eastern America, where our ingredient is extracted from the mainly wild-harvested roots of the tall, slender plant.
Patchouli Essential Oil (Pogostemon cablin)
Patchouli has reviving and stimulating properties and is used by aromatherapists to help soothe skin and help calm stress. It is even reported to be a mild aphrodisiac! The sweet, spicy, heady odour of patchouli makes it a very popular fragrance ingredient.
Cedarwood - Virginian Essential Oil (Juniperus virginiana)
This essential oil has a woody odour reminiscent of pencil sharpenings. It is widely used in fine fragrances and aftershave lotions.
Geranium Essential Oil (Pelargonium graveolens)
Adored for its fresh, floral rose-like fragrance, we source our evergreen, perennial geraniums mostly from Egypt, where our pure essential oil is steam-distilled from the branches the plant.
Aloe Vera (Aloe barbadensis)
Featuring formidable hydrating, soothing and cooling properties, our aloe vera is harvested in the morning to maximise the amount of juice the sword-shaped fronds yield, before being freeze-dried to create a powder.
Abyssinian Seed Oil (Crambe Abyssinica)
Lightweight and non-greasy, this oil helps improve the manageability of hair, enhancing shine and strengthening hair fibres. Native to Abyssinia, our oil is pressed from the small yellow and brown seeds of the flowering plant.
Lemon Essential Oil (Citrus limon)
Lemon essential oil is cold pressed from the peel of the fruit. The oil is contained within glands in the outer layer of the peel. The oil is used in aromatherapy and has a refreshing and uplifting effect, and is sometimes referred to as 'the sunshine oil'. Studies have shown that dispersing lemon oil into the atmosphere helps improve concentration; in Japan it is used in this way and is said to reduce typing errors in the workplace.
Sweet Orange Fruit Extract (Citrus aurantium dulcis)
Used for its ability to promote shine, we source this pleasantly fresh ingredient from sweet oranges grown in Sicily, where the extract is pressed from the fruit.
Vanilla Extract (Vanilla planifolia)
Responsibly sourced from Madagascar, the flowers have to be pollinated by hand and when harvested, the seedpods are carefully cured for around 6 months to produce the distinctive rich, warm scent. Our fragrance house’s goal in Madagascar is to secure supply, ensuring full traceability and high quality through an exclusive partnership with 14 villages. The programme also includes actions on education, with 4 schools built in 4 different villages, and food crop autonomy.
Apple Fruit Extract (Pyrus malus x domestica)
Used for its ability to promote shine, we source our apples from France, where the vitamin-rich flesh of Idared, Granny Smith and Golden Delicious apples are mechanically pressed to create our extract.
Kalahari Melon Seed Oil (Citrullus lanatus)
Featuring excellent emollient and nourishing properties, we source our Kalahari melon from the Kalahari Desert, where the pure oil is cold-pressed from the protein-rich dark brown seeds.
Vitamin E (Tocopherol)
This antioxidant helps protect skin against free radical damage caused by pollution and the sun’s radiation. We only use premium natural source vitamin E which is up to three times more potent than the synthetic variety.
Carrot Seed Essential Oil (Daucus carota)
The carrot’s umbrella-shaped clusters of small, white to green-yellow flowers are followed by small, oval, dull brown fruits commonly referred to as seeds. The oil obtained from these seeds has a distinctive sweet-spicy, earthy fragrance and is commonly used in chypre and oriental perfumes.
Rosemary Extract (Rosmarinus officinalis)
Used for its antioxidant properties, we source our rosemary from Spain, where the extract is filtered from the needle-shaped leaves of the plant.
