Shea Butter: 
Comes from a tree native to Africa which has soothing, moisturizing 
and protecting effects, also known as Butyrospermum Parkii. It 
displays a protective role against UV rays because of its cinnamic 
acid content. Shea Butter returns luster to skin and hair, and also 
protects the skin and scalp, especially in over-processed and/or heat 
treated hair. 
Is a member of the daisy family and is an herb that purifies, calms 
and soothes with virtually no adverse effects so it can be used for 
long periods of time. The active ingredients in chamomile are called 
essential oils and flavonoids which are good for healing skin and 
scalp irritations. 
Sunflower Oil: 
Has high amounts of Vitamins A, B, D and E, minerals, lecithin, insulin, 
and unsaturated fatty acids and is an excellent moisturizer because 
of its emollients. Emollients are known to soften skin and hair without 
leaving an oily residue. 
Avocado Oil: 
Is a rich heavy oil, more penetrating than most oils. It is therefore 
good for dry hair and skin. It is obtained from the pulp of the avocado 
pear and has a deep green color. It is stable, natural oil, rich in 
vitamin E. Avocado also contains Vitamins A, B1, B2, D, and Beta 
carotene. It is classified as monosaturated oil and is best suited for 
dry hair and skin. 
Witch Hazel: 
Is extracted from the bark and leaves of the Hamamelis tree and is 
an astringent and gentle cleanser which removes build-up on the 
hair as well as the scalp; it also helps to fight dandruff. 
Olive Oil: 
Is obtained directly from the olive after it has been harvested. It is 
made into a paste from which the oil is collected. Olive oil conditions 
and improves the strength and elasticity of the hair, helping to prevent 
breakage. It’s also very good for “frizzy” and/or damaged hair.
Aloe Vera: 
Known as the true or medicinal aloe, aloe vera is a species of 
succulent plants now widely used as a moisturizer and can also be 
used as a gel to re-twist locked hair. Aloe Vera is also used for 
soothing the skin, and keeping the skin moist while eliminating the 
risk of flaky scalp in harsh and dry weather.
