CHIA SEED OIL
Chia Oil is a cold pressure, botanical, extra Virgin oil, extracted from the seed of Salvia Hispanica that grows in
the Amazonian forest. It protects the hair fiber from oxidative damage caused by solar radiation. It creates a protective film that prevents the destruction of proteins caused by UV rays, increasing water retention, and preventing photo-oxidation.
Chia oil provides essential fatty acids such as Omega 3 and 6, vitamins, flavonoids, and antioxidants. It protects the hair from possible aggressions and restores the natural shine of the hair.
CHIA’S ACTIVE INGREDIENTS
Proteins: Chia seeds are an excellent source of protein (up to 20%), and are crucial for a healthy hair growth. The lack of protein in a diet may not only cause slow hair growth, but it could also lead to hair loss. Chia seeds contain all the essential amino acids.
Copper: paramount for a healthy hair growth. The lack of Copper has been associated with the loss and thinning of hair. Copper also delays the appearance of grey hair, and intensifies its natural colour.
Zinc: another important mineral for a healthy hair. It plays an important role in the production of new hair cells, and helps maintain the oil glands discharge which keep the hair shiny. Chia seeds are a brilliant source of Zinc and Copper.
PUFAs: Chia seeds are one of the best sources of Omega 3 and Omega 6. A lack of these two sources is associated with hair loss and scaly skin.
B vitamin complex: necessary for a healthy hair. Chia seeds are an excellent source of vitamins of B complex, especially Thiamine (vitamin B1), Niacin (vitamin B3), Riboflavin (vitamin B2), Pyridoxine (vitamin B6), and Cobalamin (vitamin B12).
Iron: a low Iron supply seems to be one of the main causes for early hair loss in women. Chia seeds are rich in Iron.
Vitamin D: plays an important role in the hair growth cycle, specifically at the beginning of the anagen phase (hair growth phase). Research of the Cairo University discovered that women experimenting hair loss, also had lower levels of Iron and vitamin D.
Vitamin E: an essential antioxidant for a healthy hair. Prevents UV radiation from damaging the hair by maintaining it hydrated. Antioxidants constitute a defense barrier by reducing the number of free radicals generated inside the hair.
