THE PROPERTIES OF GALANGAL
The appearance of flakes is the result of an abnormal shedding of epidermal cells on the scalp. Cells multiply too quickly and do not allow time for dead cells to be eliminated as they grow. This phenomenon is reinforced by an imbalance in the microbiome of the scalp and by the proliferation of Malassezia fungi.
This is where Galangal (Alpinia Galangal) comes in: used in traditional Chinese medicine, its cleansing properties, purifying and soothing action is particularly effective against visible flakes. This natural extract will rebalance and purify the scalp while instantly removing visible flakes with a long-lasting effect. Your hair will be free of flakes.

During Marco Polo’s travels in Asia in the 13th century, he reported the cultivation of Galangal in South China and Java. At that time, Galangal was already well-known in Western Europe and the German Benedictine abbess Hildegard of Bingen advocated its medicinal virtues.”
