POLLUTED SCALP The amazing detoxifying properties of water mint

When your scalp is tired and irritated and your hair dry or dull, a scalp detox is required. When it comes to purifying and oxygenating, water mint works wonders! Recognised for its unparalleled depolluting properties, it helps to get rid of pollutants that suffocate hair, and gives it a healthy boost. Both men and women can benefit from a scalp detox!

Is water mint for me?

Water mint has many benefits, and when it comes to haircare it’s recommend if:

- You live in the city (a high pollution environment) 

- You’re on a detox diet as a way to complete the process 

- You’re looking for a quick burst of freshness (after the gym, for example) 

It’s not recommended for:

- Children

- People with dry and sensitive scalps


The benefits of water mint

The pure water mint juice, organically grown by Klorane, has scientifically proven depolluting properties for hair.

Water mint or mentha aquatica is a perennial plant with a characteristically strong minty scent. It can be found in humid areas, along rivers and streams. Traditionally used throughout the world for centuries for its various refreshing, antiseptic and stimulating properties, our botanists selected the mentha aquatica L plant for its high content of polyphenols that offer proven antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits for hair. It is grown on Klorane’s own land, in the southwest of France, to guarantee the highest quality and efficiency.

A few words from our botanist

“Water mint is an exceptional plant, it detoxifies the hair and nature too. For example, we support a river clean-up project that uses this mint to depollute the water."

A few words from the foundation

Given that the quality of water and its protection are two major challenges facing our society, we have teamed up with the Laboratoire de Chimie Bio-Inspirée et d’Innovations Écologiques to study the depolluting power of water mint and create a completely natural plant filter to clean polluted water.

What people are saying

Once you try it, you’ll love it! I love the fact that its minty scent is slightly more mild and sweeter than "classic" mint, and that it envelops the hair in a pleasant fragrance. It also has a great purifying and refreshing effect between washes and leaves no residue at all.

Does it have benefits for the skin too?


Water mint has proven effectiveness in protecting squalane (the main component of sebum) subjected to stress from the ozone. Especially since we are comparing the level of activity of a plant extract, water mint, with that of a pure molecule, designed specifically for this activity.

Sebum is present in both the hair and skin. Therefore, water mint can also benefit your skin! In cosmetics, water mint extract helps curb the proliferation of fat cells.
