Sweet almond oil, native to Asia and the Middle East and used by the Romans as a beauty product, has many virtues.
It is recommended for dry skin and babies for its moisturizing side. It is also softening, nourishing, fortifying, soothing and refreshing. Sweet almond oil is often used in homemade beauty products.
It relieves the baby’s buttocks (be careful of the risk of allergies) and protects your face from climatic aggressions (wind, cold, etc.).
It is also the ally of pregnant women to prevent stretch marks throughout pregnancy.
Just like the skin, sweet almond oil nourishes dry hair and prevents the appearance of dandruff. It can be used in massage on dry ends or the scalp.
Sweet almond oil can be consumed at a rate of 5 to 10ml per day to avoid specific health problems such as urinary problems, cholesterol, bronchitis, or dry coughs.
It also has laxative, deworming, expectorant, anti-sterile, and antiemetic properties.
Some sweet almond oils can also be eaten as a seasoning for raw vegetables and other dishes, but be careful; this is not the case with all sweet almond oils. Most are for external use only.
With its many virtues, sweet almond oil is aimed at a broad audience. There are several kinds, some intended for a specific use, others being organic.
PROTECT YOUR HAIR FROM THE SUN!
Of course, your hair is not at risk of “cancer,” it’s all about aesthetics, but everyone wants healthy hair.
UV rays weaken hair and make it dull; it loses elasticity and color. They are also attacked by chlorine, sea salt, wind, and repeated shampooing.
We advise you to use hair sun protection, that is to say, treatment with a UV filter.
Note that the René Furterer laboratories have created a specific hair protection index, the KPF index – Keratin Protection Factor – it indicates the percentage of protection of keratin, an essential constituent of hair.
SHEA BUTTER: ALL ITS BENEFITS!
Shea butter is extracted from the shea tree’s fruit; it is an organic product by nature because the tree from which it is extracted grows only in the wild. It is therefore often certified Organic Cosmetics. Shea butter is used in cosmetics; it is part of many cosmetic products for the hair and the body.
Three essential virtues
– suppleness & vitality
– hydration & satin effect
– protection against the cold and the sun
Shea butter can be used:
– for the body and face, it is a moisturizer for the skin that restores radiance and vitality,
It is a powerful conditioner; it nourishes the hair’s keratin and gives suppleness and shine to the hair. It is ideal as a mask for the hair.
– it is also a sublime lip gloss ideal for chapped lips.
It is also found in the composition of various products in hand creams, shampoos, lip balms, shower gels, body balms, etc.
The Labo Cosprophar laboratory is a Swiss laboratory registered in 1989 whose products are patented (Swiss patent, European patent, American patent). Their mission is “to devote significant investments in research to formulate – and patent – special, innovative cosmetic products offering real results to consumers.”
One thing is sure; the results are not disappointing!
This laboratory has two ranges: Crescina and Laboïna Stem.
The Crescent range comes in ampoules and shampoo for men and women; it is recommended for people suffering from androgenetic alopecia and effluvium. It promotes hair regrowth and stops hair loss.
The Laboïna Stem range is the new generation of preparations for reducing expression lines, especially all facial lines. In Laboïna Stem care for expression lines, the discovery of the potential of Active Plant Stem Cells is a real leap forward that guarantees excellent product efficacy. Their action can improve the results of the treatment, particularly in terms of the reduction of wrinkles.
An indisputable advantage: the results! Rapid effectiveness on hair regrowth for the Crescina range and deep action on all wrinkles for the Laboïna Stem range.
BACK TO SCHOOL IS ALSO BACK TO SCHOOL FOR LICE
It’s back to school, but also back to school for lice! Taking advantage of the outings outside and the still mild temperatures, the start of the school year is a good godsend for them!
Small reminder: hair lice are parasites of humans exclusively. So nothing to do with crabs or animal fleas. They feed on their host’s blood 3-5 times a day, causing the itching. During its life, the female louse can lay a hundred eggs, the nits, which attach themselves to the hair and give birth, after 8 to 10 days, to a larva which will also feed on blood. This larva will develop into an adult louse in 18 days.
The most characteristic sign of pediculosis – the name given to contamination by lice – is the presence of itching.
From the first signs, it is better to act because it is, above all, necessary to limit their colonization to children and adults in contact. Its lifespan is still one month, so if no action is taken, it has time to multiply and spread both among its host and among its friends. Since it does not jump (and no!) And does not fly; it is transmitted by direct contact or through clothing, sheets, and other textiles that children can exchange.
There are emergency treatments to eliminate lice, but also preventive care to prevent them from settling on your heads or those of your children.
The ITEM Dermatology laboratory has these two types of care:
In prevention, the 2 in 1 balm, thanks to its combination of essential oils and detangling agents, allows to take off the dead nits clinging to the hair and ward off lice by its repellent effect to avoid reinfestation of the scalp.
It is used as a conditioner, with which a fine comb is provided.
In treatment, KO Poux Gel-Cream eliminates lice by asphyxiation. Coconut oil, dimethicone, petrolatum oil, and beeswax suffocate lice by a combined enveloping action; lice die from asphyxiation and dehydration.
The nutritious gel-cream form prevents spattering on application and leaves hair soft, shiny, and easy to comb. A fine comb is provided with this care.
