Davines OI OIL – composition analysis

Absolute Beautifying Potion composition starts with volatile silicon (Cyclopentasiloxane), that quickly evaporates without doing any harm to hair. A bit further is one more volatile silicon (Cyclohexasiloxane), that is preceded by two mild silicon oils, which can be removed with gentle shampoo (Disiloxane, Dimethiconol). Right before fragrances is additional UV filter (Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate). All the ingredients are probably undesirable when it comes to hair care products, however, in case of hair styling these are essential.

Silicones and filters protect hair against damages and condition them.

Right behind fragrances gets a bit more interesting when it comes to natural ingredients. Their position in the composition means that in Davines OI OIL, these particular substances are in trace amounts. The cosmetic contains antioxidant in form of vitamin E (Tocopherol). Next is sunflower seed oil (Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil), which nourishes and provides essential vitamins and minerals. Davines enriched its product also with annatto oil (Bixa Orellana Oil), i.e. another one antioxidant, and buriti oil (Mauritia Flexuosa Fruit Oil) obtained from Amazon palm that moisturises and inhibits ageing processes.

The composition ends with five fragrances (Citronellol, Geraniol, Linalool, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Limonene), which are responsible for very heavy and irritating scent. Aroma is difficult to determine, but it resembles a bit scent of cheap perfumes. However, more important is that it lasts on hair for some time after styling.
