Everyone wants healthy, beautiful hair, but traditional hair care products contain strange chemicals (what is “methylisothiazolinone”?) that don’t take care of hair at all! Your customers are looking instead for natural ingredients to cleanse their scalps and nourish their hair. Let’s discuss some oils and herbs that can replace harsh chemicals in shampoos and conditioners to nurture your clients’ hair and even help it thrive!

Larénim has introduced Youth Bloom Gel, a daily face gel that is formulated to minimize the appearance of aging. Key ingredients include amino acids L-Carnosine and L-Ornithine, which reduce fine lines and wrinkles and uplift the skin to make it appear firmer and smoother.

Trace Minerals Research introduced ConcenTrace Mineral Mouth Rinse. The mint-flavored rinse includes ConcenTrace, a complex of over 72 naturally occurring ionic trace minerals made from concentrated seawater from the Great Salt Lake. It also contains colloidal silver and peppermint essential oil.

Eco Lips introduces Mongo Kiss, a hydrating, rejuvenating and protecting lip balm made with Mongongo Nut Oil, which is rich in vitamin E and EFAs. Mongo Kiss is organic, fair-trade, gluten-free and made with 100% renewable energy offsets. It comes in peppermint, pomegranate, vanilla-honey and unflavored. SRP: $1.99

Jonathan Product recently launched Awake Color, a three-in-one hair care product that combines hair color, dry shampoo and styler. The color is a loose mineral powder that temporarily covers roots. The product also increases hair volume while absorbing dirt and oil. Several colors are available.
