Our Clarifying Scalp Scrub sloughs away flaky dead skin and helps alleviate symptoms of dandruff and psoriasis, while rejuvenating the scalp-skin with healing shea butter and argan oil.
When was the last time you gave your scalp a good going-over? While you might exfoliate other areas with gusto, your scalp tends to be the one left on the sidelines. But it’s probably the area that needs it the most. As with the skin on your face, your scalp has its fair share of dirt and debris. But with your hair covering it, it can easily build up causing irritation and inhibiting hair growth. Imbued with the relaxing scent of sweet orange and rosemary, our Clarifying Scalp Scrub exfoliates away dead skin and debris that cause irritation with biodegradable jojoba beads. It also improves the environment for hair growth with moisturising and healing shea butter as well as nourishing argan oil extract. The beads are non-abrasive, but sweep away debris with aplomb.
For best results, apply it as part of a relaxing scalp massage (or get a willing partner to oblige). Free from parabens, sulphates and silicones.
This popular haircare ingredient is produced from Argan trees in Morocco and is packed with essential fatty acids and vitamin E to boost elasticity and shine. What makes it particularly great for hair is that it’s lighter than other plant-based oils, so doesn’t leave it feeling greasy or heavy.
Jojoba is a North American plant (pronounced “hohoba”) from which a liquid wax can be extracted and turned into beads that can be used to gently buff away dead skin cells and product build-up on the scalp.
A nut extract from the African shea tree, this is a particularly popular ingredient in skincare, as it is swiftly absorbed without leaving any greasy residue. It’s also renowned for its healing properties making it perfect for alleviating scalp discomfort.
This plant extract is a particularly popular ingredient in cleansers, as it’s known for its ability to bind oil and water molecules, lifting away excess grease and dirt.
