The Sacred Herb- Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Essence and Oil

In ancient times, the Greeks and Romans used rosemary as a sacred herb. Clearly, our ancestors were right, since rosemary is currently considered to be a medicinal plant with great benefits for hair, thanks to its antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. It has very effective curative and preventive properties for those experiencing hair loss. 

The Rosmarinus Officinalis variety is unique to certain areas of the Mediterranean Sea, where the land and sea level determine the plant conditions and allows for the obtaining of its maximum quality, the essential oil.

The Rosmarinus Officinalis essential oil is unique in its ability to alleviate oily hair, being an excellent regulator of the scalp’s sebaceous glands. And, it helps us to obtain a strong hair that is resistant and accelerates the growth process. This powerful ingredient is found in the Bionins Multi Repair shampoo and in the Bionins Nature+ mask.

However, a good team requires good co-workers and this sacred herb would not work so well if it weren’t for its other top allies: Coconut, Arctium Lappa (Burdock), Simmondsia Chinesis (Jojoba), Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera), Equisetum Arvense and Arnica Montana.

The Magical Properties of Coconut

Among its many properties and benefits for hair, coconut is a great natural ingredient to attain strong and healthy hair. Coconut is one of the most useful ingredients for hair that has been damaged by chemicals or hair dyes, since it strengthens the roots with its fatty oils and vitamins K and E. Its regenerative properties minimize the damage that is caused by these dyes and hair brushes, improving hair fibre regeneration and nourishing the hair follicle.

The essential oil of coconut is especially useful to ensure an overall hair hydration, preventing dryness and helping thin hair to gain a greater thickness and accelerating the growth process. Thanks to the lauric and fatty acids contained in the coconut oil, upon application, the shampoo helps our hair to obtain its natural shine, leaving it extremely soft and manageable.

It is also considered to be a very effective natural sunscreen for our hair fibres.

In short, the properties of coconut together with those of the sacred herb are the perfect combination to ensure the overall beauty of our hair. 

Arctium Lappa extract (Burdock)

This plant, also known as Burdock, is of great benefit to the scalp and hair. Its high content of fatty acids, tannins, vitamins and phytosterols and their strengthening and stimulating properties help the scalp to resolve some of its most common problems such as dandruff, irritation and excessive sensitivity.

Clearly, this is an indispensable plant in the treatment of hair loss and weakening.

The following are some of its main benefits to the scalp:

  • Maintains healthy hair and a balanced scalp that is free from irritations.
  • Excellent anti-hair loss capacity.
  • Promotes the proper functioning of the sebaceous glands.
  • Relieves sensitive scalp itching.
  • Treats dandruff.
  • Repairs dry hair structure.

It is contained in the Bionins Multireparador shampoo.

Simmondsia Chinensis seed oil (Jojoba oil)

Jojoba oil, also known as Simmondsia Chinensis seed oil, is an essential ingredient in the Bionins Nature+ mask. Jojoba oil is extracted from the seeds of the jojoba plant and has a bright golden colour. It is mainly found in the southern United States and northern Mexico.

Jojoba oil helps with problems of hair loss, oily or dry hair, thanks to its high content of minerals and vitamin E. This important ingredient functions perfectly as a scalp moisturizer, hydrating it from within the pores and not evaporating, resulting in long lasting hydration. Furthermore, it can act as a powerful pH regulator and helps to control sebum production, promoting a natural shine in our hair.

Another essential benefit of Jojoba oil is the effective prevention of hair loss and hair thinning. Hair loss tends to be caused by hair follicles that are blocked with sebum; Jojoba oil can dissolve and eliminate these blockages, helping to resolve this problem.

Aloe Barbadensis extract (Aloe Vera)

The Egyptians were the first to discover the benefits of this marvellous plant, Aloe Vera, for the hair. Cleopatra herself used it on a daily basis to take care of her hair as part of her beauty routine.

It goes without saying that this famous plant is quite well known. We are knowledgeable of its nutritional value and its numerous benefits in the areas of health and beauty.However, Bionins has managed to include the enormous benefits of Aloe Vera in its Nature+ mask.

These benefits include the following:

  • Elimination of sebum.
  • Fighting dandruff.
  • Prevention of hair loss.
  • Promotion of new hair growth.
  • Improves appearance of dry and damaged hair.
  • Eliminates split ends.

In short, the Bionins Nature+ mask would not be the same without this important ingredient on its team.

Equisetum Arvense extract (Horsetail)

This beneficial medicinal herb has existed for millions of years. It is a pre-historic herb. Its common name, "horsetail" comes from its clear similarity to a horse’s tail.

Today, this medicinal herb is one of the most highly consumed, thanks to its many therapeutic properties.

The main reason why horsetail is included in the group of Bionins ingredients is its main property for hair: it helps to halt hair loss and stimulates growth naturally, providing the necessary nutrients. Its high content of organic silicon helps provide elasticity, resistance and strength to hair.

This essential ingredient is found in the Bionins Nature+ mask.

Arnica montana extract

Arnica is an herb with flowers, which is a part of the daisy family. This is a very ancient herb, used by our ancestors for areas of health and beauty.

Bionins uses the arnica variety that is the most beneficial for hair in its Nature+ mask: Arnica montana.

This arnica variety comes from the mountainous regions of Canada and the US and it is beneficial in several aspects of hair care: controlling dandruff, stimulating growth and helping to halt premature greying.
