Crystal Shine Finishing Oil – composition analysis

It may seem that small pink oil from Schwarzkopf will not delight us with its composition. However, it is not that bad if we take a closer look. First are two light silicones (Cyclomethicone, Dimethiconol) – one volatile and easily evaporates from hair, and the other easy to rinse with delicate shampoo. These are not harmful to hair. In right amount can provide hair with the protection on the surface and does not clog pores.

Unfortunately, in the composition of Crystal Shine Finishing Oil in only one natural oil – apricot kernel oil (Prunus Armeniaca Kernel Oil). It is an invaluable source of vitamin B17, which is responsible for hair regeneration and cellular renewal. Right behind the oil was placed additional UV filter (Octocrylene), that protects hair against harmful radiation. This is where the list of active substances ends in this product. The composition is brief, but full-bodied.

For the strong, sweet and nauseating smell of the hair oil in Essence Ultime Line are responsible seven artificial fragrances (Hexyl Cinnamal, Linalool, Limonene, Benzyl Salicylate, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Geraniol, Citronellol). Many people may actually like it. Sadly, it does not last long on hair.
