MASQUES + BUTTERS
Butters are emollients. They moisturize, protect, and soften the skin. The skin normally provides this function itself, but in today’s world, your skin needs support due to environmental stresses, indoor air quality, and exposure to sun and air pollution. Hair masques are a time-honored tradition in women’s haircare because of their healing and nutritive qualities. Deep conditioning can only be done with extraordinary ingredients that remain on the hair for some time. Hair is subjected to harsh external influences on a daily basis, effects that can be countered and reversed when nourished. Our rule of thumb for healthy scalp, skin and hair is the same. If you do not know what an ingredient is, don’t put it on your body. Trust your instincts. No matter the claims, chemicals are not your friends. There are magical, extraordinary ingredients for skin and hair. They are plant extracts, an oil freshly made from seeds, a butter made from ancient trees, or in the case of Amla, a fruit grown in paradise.
