Delicately Beautifying Scented Oil – composition analysis
Kerastase Elixir Ultime Delicately Beautifying Scented Oil consists of few precious vegetable oils. However, before we reach them in the composition, we have to go through some other substances. First of them is volatile silicon (Cyclopentasiloxane), a bit further are another out of light silicones (Phenyl Trimethicone, Dimethicone), which are also not harmful to hair. Unfortunately, the second place was taken by the harmful one hydrogen oxide alcohol (Alcohol Denat), which can be a cause for dryness and roughness.
Further part of Elixir Ultime Oleo-Complexe Rose Millenaire is the oil complex. As first there is maize oil (Zea Mays Oil), rich in EFA. Next is well-known argan oil (Argania Spinosa Oil) with strong regenerating properties. Then there is camellia oil (Camellia Oleifera Seed Oil) and pracaxi seed oil (Pentaclethra Macroloba Seed Oil) – both with intense moisturising and nourishing properties. Oils collection in the product ends with wild rose extract (Rosa Canina Flower Extract), which was mentioned on the label and fulfils the function of natural UV filter.
Natural oils in the composition are twined with emollients (Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride), that unfortunately have clogging action. Somewhere at the end of the composition is placed another bad alcohol (Benzyl Alcohol), that causes dryness. In Elixir Ultime Rose Millenaire it fulfils role of fragrance. This is why the cosmetic has intense, irritating smell of alcohol. Luckily, it evaporates pretty quickly.
