Naolys is using lilac to repair and add shine to hair. Healthy Shine Lilac (INCI: Syringa Vulgaris (Lilac) Leaf Cell Extract) has a multifunctional effect on hair, acting on all three parts of the hair: the root, the scalp and the shaft.
The lilac extract reduces inflammation at the hair bulb and scalp, reduces oxidation at the hair bulb and increases energy production at the hair bulb. The lilac extract also repairs the hair shaft, where mechanical damage takes place, to enhance shine. Therefore, it is said to soothe irritation, smooth hair and reinforce hair's natural protection to prevent hair damage. In addition, it restores shine to hair and energizes hair at the roots.
Despite its small size (2 to 5 m) the lilac shrub can live for up to 40 years. It has been used medicinally for tonic and antipyretic effects in addition to its decorative use.
A clinical study after 28 days of treatment showed a repair and shine effect on hair. In addition, in vitro test results show an increase of energetic metabolism combined with a decrease in the release of inflammation mediators and in the creation of free radicals. All tests were performed with a 0.5% concentration of 20% cells dispersed in 80% vegetal glycerin.
Healthy Shine Lilac is not allergenic, preservative free, and can be used in any formulation from skin care to makeup applications. However, it is recommended starting at 0.5% in hair products for strengthening and repairing hair, especially products for damaged hair. Ecocert or COSMOS agreement is available on request.
