▶ Product Description
Shampoos can be categorized into 3 different types depending on the cleansing ingredients: “alcohol-based”, “soap-based”, and “amino acid-based”. Alcohol-based shampoos often use petroleum-based surfactants which are extremely irritating and highly damaging for both hair and scalp. While most soap-based shampoos contain softer natural cleansing ingredients, they tend to dehydrate the scalp, turning hair brittle. Amino acid-based shampoos, on the other hand, are extremely gentle to the scalp and are known for their high cleansing and moisturizing power.
This Amino Acid Shampoo does not contain any synthesized chemical surfactants, such as petroleum and sulfuric acid, prevalent in most commercial shampoos. The only surfactants used are amino acid-based. Derived from natural ingredients, the gentle substances protect the scalp from irritation and dryness. Its slightly alkaline quality softens epidermal cells in the scalp, encouraging healthy cell turnover.
9 kinds of plant extracts, including extracts from peach leaves, are blended in this shampoo. An ancient beauty technique, peach leaves have a relaxing and moisturizing effect on oily skin and scalp. This all-natural ingredient is also highly recommended for babies, and can be used to safely cleanse the entire body.
This product is manufactured by a Japanese cosmetics company with a Cosmetics Manufacturing and Sales Business License. Ingredients have been tested as hypoallergenic. *Not guaranteed as completely irritant-free for all customers.
▶ How to Use
For easy lathering with minimal product use, wet hair thoroughly with warm water for over 20 minutes. Warm water opens up scalp pores, activating amino acid reactions. Gently massage the scalp with the balls of the fingers, leaving it on for a minute for smelly scalp and dandruff relief before rinsing.
