INGREDIENT DETAILS According to Saco Haircare

Argan Oil:  In cosmetics, like other plant oils, it is mainly used as an emollient, smoothing and softening agent  This oil is particularly appreciated for its moisturizing and antioxidant properties and has been exploited with great success as a commercial booster ingredient for both skincare and haircare cosmetics. Since it naturally contains a high amount of vitamin E and many essential fatty acids Omega 6 and Omega 9, argan oil has been used since ancient times by Berber women as a moisturizer and repairer for hair.

Olive Oil: Olive oil has many beneficial properties but the precious ones for hair health are: vitamin E effective in the fight against free radicals responsible for aging; vitamin A, an inexhaustible source of nourishment for all connective tissues of skin and hair fatty acids such as linoleic acid. The combined and synergistic action of all these elements helps to make hair healthier and more beautiful.

Peach Kernel Oil: Rich in vitamins E, A and essential fatty acids, Apricot Oil is appreciated for its nourishing, elasticising and antioxidant properties.  It gives softness and shine to dry hair damaged by heat and bleaching.

Phytokeratin: Keratin is a fundamental constituent protein of the hair, whose hydrolysed component, of animal origin, is a very strong restructuring and moisturizing agent for hair. Saco managed to obtain the same results and similar composition with hydrolysed plant proteins, principally originating from rice Phyto keratins.

Anti Age Complex: Saco Anti-Aging Complex combines the action of one of the most powerful moisturizers - hyaluronic acid sodium salt, which helps maintain hydration and elasticity of the hair with red vine leaf extract, rich in anti-oxidant molecules such as polyphenols, which counteract aging due to the action of free radicals, pollution and UV radiation.
