PROPERTIES OF CHAMOMILE
We selected a variety of chamomile that is rich in apigenin, a yellow pigment found in the petals. This pigment has natural properties, that naturally and gently lighten all hair shades, from blonde to brown. The natural pigments of the plant attach to the hair without penetrating the hair strand.
Chamomile is where it all began for Klorane: it was the ingredient in our first shampoo 50 years ago. Since then, chamomile has become our iconic hair care product whose secret is passed from mother to daughter, reflecting the bond that binds us to our consumers- a tradition we are very proud of.
