It is the first fruit tree to bloom at the end of winter. It produces fleshy stone fruits containing the precious edible almond. The almond tree was one of the first trees to be domesticated by man. In Greek, " amygdalon " and in Latin " amandula " mean " divine gift ", " rare and precious good ".


Why is it so effective for your hair?

Sweet almond is mainly used today in food. Very rich in lipids and proteins, it contains many minerals, trace elements and vitamins. Its benefits speak for themselves, as attested by the Provençal proverb " healthy as an almond "! Its benefits also extend to the hair: the fatty acids that make up sweet almond oil, oleic (Omega 9) and linoleic (Omega 6), help to strengthen the lipid barrier for maximum nutrition. They ensure good skin hydration thanks to their film-forming and protective properties by coating hair fibres to make styling easier. The effects of almond provide so much hold that the shampoo is able to neutralise static electricity!

Respect for the environment

As part of our Clean Beauty approach, we still continuously review our formulas with ingredients that we consider less harmful. We switched from almond milk to almond oil to avoid the use of Propylene Glycol.

Towards a cleaner beauty

Our efforts to improve our almond-based formulas 

In the past we used almond milk with almond extract, peptides, which was mixed with propylene glycol. These peptides are charged ionic molecules that bind to the hair and close the damaged scales. Nowadays, thanks to research, we have become aware of the negative effects of certain components, such as Propylene Glycol. We have therefore chosen to replace milk with sweet almond oil, whose oleic and linoleic acids are not charged with ions and act naturally to moisturise, soften and strengthen the hair shaft.


Did you know?

In Greek mythology, the almond tree is a symbol of love. Phyllis, daughter of the king of Thrace, feeling neglected by her fiancé Demophon, went on a journey and took her own life. The gods, moved by pity for this eternal fallen love, transformed her into an almond tree with bare branches. On his return, Demophon found out and embraced the almond tree with great sadness. This one was instantly covered in numerous fragrant white flowers.
