About the ingredients

We know some of these ingredients are unfamiliar so here's a quick summary of what they are and what they do.

Conditioner pellets - Often seen in recipes as BTMS-25. Derived from rapeseed oil and sustainably sourced RSPO mass balance certified palm oil, these pellets make a luxurious hair conditioner (the best we've ever come across) and hair detangler for leave-on and rinse-off products.

Hydrolysed wheat protein – derived from wheat germ it is used to increase hydration and elasticity, protect cuticles and strenghten hair. Because of its low molecular weight, it easily penetrates the hair shaft and absorbs into the inner fibers of the hair.

Organic glycerin - palm oil free, vegetable oil based, mainly soybean and coconut oil. Glycerin is a sugar alcohol which acts as a moisturiser (emollient) and humectant, meaning it absorbs water from the air. Most glycerins are palm-oil based, so please beware.

Geogard 221 - Ecocert approved preservative.
