PROPERTIES OF THE CITRON
Modern life generates external aggressors- pollution, hard water and dust that can be deposited on the hair, weighing it down, making it dull and often stimulating the process of sebum production in the scalp.
We have selected the Corsican citron for the sweetness of its pulp and its energising and detoxifying properties. Our Citrons are harvested exclusively by hand, just before it is ripe, when they are still bright green, full of amino acids and vitamins - thanks to the sun of the Island of Beauty. At our factory in Gaillac in the Tarn region, we obtain a gold-coloured citron extract from crushing the whole fruit to help hair regain its vitality and protect against oxidative stress from external environmental aggressors.
