Soy Protein - Derived from Soy Beans
Hydrolysed Soy Protein is a natural ingredient made from soybeans. It acts as a conditioner, giving body and texture to the hair. The protein becomes attracted to the hair cuticles and forms a protective layer; this then softens and repairs the hair in addition to providing fullness, shine and glass. It also reduces 'fly-away' hair. It is an excellent natural addition in hair care products.
Vitamin B5 Panthenol
When Vitamin B5 is used in hair care products it is readily absorbed into the hair, being deposited onto the cuticle and penetrating the cortex of the hair.

It considerably reduces the formation of split ends. It serves to repair damaged hair and can thicken undamaged hair by up to 10%.

Cleansers / Surfactants
Sodium Coco Sulphate
Cleaners are made up of an oil compatible 'head' which imbeds into dirt impregnated oil, and a water compatible 'tail', which aids in washing the dirt away.
EverEscents specifically choose to use this ingredient as the primary cleanser in our Organic Hair Cleanse Shampoo products, as it is a relatively new ingredient which is skin friendly and has negligible irritancy. It is plant derived and performs well.
The commercial cosmetic industry has chosen to use sulphates such as Sodium Lauryl Sulphate and Sodium Laureth Sulfate as their main cleansers, due to the powerful cleansing action and low cost. However these sulphates tend to be powerful irritants and there are also questions about their long-term safety.
