Fresh Stinging Nettle:
(Urtica dioica), Stinging Nettle use topically and as a supplement can reduce considerably scalp inflammation which is a major cause of hair loss.
Dandruff and flakes, sensitivity during styling, and even a scalp that feels slightly warm to the touch can all be signs that your scalp is inflamed.
Chronic inflammation can cause the cells in your scalp to activate a self-destructive mechanism. It can cause significant damage to the hair strands and the follicles that they grow out of.
Stinging nettle doesn’t just help ease inflammation. It has different ways to fight hair loss. It can also help inhibit the production and release of a hormone that can cause hair loss. The stinging nettle is also loaded with antioxidants which can help repair damage from free radicals.
Fresh Organic Aloe Vera:
(Aloe vera var), The leaves of the Aloe vera plant hold a gooey translucent gel, known all over the world for it's unbelievable healing properties. This translucent gel is made up of around 96% water, some organic and inorganic compounds, a type of protein which contains 18 of the 20 amino acids found in the body and lastly, Vitamin A, B, C and E.
One of the most crucial elements found in aloe vera gel is a complex carbohydrate known as acemannan. It allows nutrients to reach the cells, nourish them and at the same time relieve them of toxins.
Aloe Vera, can exfoliate, restore, reveal and provide constant, nutrition to the skin. Some call it the “miracle herb” that can be used to treat wounds, minor cuts, dry skin and severe burns.
Aloe vera contains proteolytic enzymes which repairs dead skin cells on the scalp. It also acts as a great conditioner and leaves your hair all smooth and shiny. It promotes hair growth, prevents itching on the scalp, reduces dandruff and conditions your hair. Aloe vera has a chemical make up similar to that of keratin (the primary protein of hair) and it rejuvenates the hair with its own nutrients, giving it more elasticity and preventing breakage.
(NaOH, Caustic Soda, Lye), We use Sodium Hydroxide commonly noun as caustic soda or lye to saponify the oils.
Saponification is the chemical reaction of making soap. Once the saponification, is complete, the lye and oil molecules have combined and chemically changed into soap and natural glycerine.
The lye is used up in the saponification process to turn oil into soap.
There is no sodium hydroxide present in the finished bars of soap or shampoo after the curing process. While all real soap must be made with sodium hydroxide (lye), no lye remains in our finished product after saponification. If it is real soap or contains real soap, it must be made with sodium hydroxide (lye).
