LET'S DISCOVER THE PHYTOCEUTICALS & ACCOMPANYING NATURAL INGREDIENTS IN REBALANCING FAMILY.
Plants have been trusted sources of healing since the beginning of time. Many of the botanical remedies historically used in Ayurvedic, functional and Eastern medicine are composed of natural ingredients that today been scientifically proven to contain health-fortifying Phytoceuticals.
Phytoceuticals are biological active compounds specifically found in plants which, in nature, protect the plants from external hazards thanks to their antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-free radical properties. Phytoceuticals can be considered the immune system of the plant.
Naturaltech harnesses these potent benefits and combines them with the most cutting-edge technology to create effective, targeted haircare solutions inspired by nature and backed by science. In this series, we take a closer look at the Phytoceuticals and accompanying natural ingredients in each Naturaltech family.
Rebalancing Shampoo is formulated with lemon phytoceuticals, and enhanced with ginger, cinnamon and salad burnet to combat oily scalps without over-drying and restore hair to optimum health.
In ancient times,lemon was not even considered a food – it was purely used for sterilizing purposes and as an antidote to certain poisons. The fruit has long been touted by the wellness community as a toxin-flusher, PH-balancer and digestive aid, thanks to its proven hefty doses of antibacterial and antifungal properties. In treating greasy scalps, lemon acts as a deep cleanser while increasing the health of the skin. The antiseptic effects of lemon are so successful, it has been shown in recent studies to prevent skin defects such as flakes, growths or sores, and to decrease the occurrence of squamous cell carcinoma, which is the overgrowth of abnormal skin cells.
A common theme in early functional medicine was to apply plant remedies to the part of the human form they most resembled. Ginger, redolent of the stomach, has been historically used to treat digestive troubles. Its soothing, physically relaxing effect extends beyond the stomach due to 6-Shogaol, a bioactive chemical compound with concentrated anti-inflammatory powers. As part of a healthy scalp regimen, ginger works to help calm irritated or sensitive skin.
Cinnamon has solidified its reputation as a super-spice thanks to its plentiful protective antioxidants and analgesic properties, which help provide pain relief. Like lemon, cinnamon is a known antifungal and antibacterial ingredient, hitting oily scalps with a double-dose of deep cleansing power. Additionally, cinnamon acts as a stimulant, encouraging the circulation of blood to hair follicles to boost healthy hair growth.
Salad Burnet, a member of the rose family, is the final measure of natural cleansing and protective care in Rebalancing. Originally used in medieval times to heal wounds and combat the plague, Salad Burnet is teeming with antioxidants including rutin and quercetin, two of the strongest sources. It is also high in Kaempferol, a flavanol with known anti-inflammatory and calming properties.
Combining lemon phytoceuticals with this combination of natural ingredients creates a modern-day version of a plant-based remedy to deeply clean, protect and calm imbalanced scalps.
