TOWhich ingredients in the product are responsible for moisturizing? Does it contain silicones? We figure it out together with an independent make-up artist Angelica Baklaga.
The concept of the product is based on one of the most famous and expensive oils – argan. The main feature of this oil, in addition to polyunsaturated fatty acids and vitamins, is that the product is “dry”. For all its nutritional properties, argan oil has the ability to quickly be absorbed without leaving greasy marks (we wrote about gross mistakes when using hair oils
Based on the composition of Moroccanoil Oil Treatment, it becomes clear that silicone oils take over all the main functions.
Cyclopentasiloxane, a fast drying silicone, forms the base of the product. Dimethicone and Cyclomethicone are two more silicones to help the former. Together they will achieve the declared effect: dry quickly, leave no greasy marks, remove fluffiness, condition, provide thermal protection and make hair soft.
Next comes the preservative (Butylphenyl, MethylPropional), followed by Argania Spinoza Kernal Oil (Aragan Oil). To help him, the manufacturer added flax extract (Linseed (Linum Usitatissimum) Extract), which is rich in vitamins.
Then the composition is followed by a perfume composition, dyes and possible allergens from the perfume: Fragrance Supplement, D&C Yellow-11, D&C Red-17, Coumarin, Benzyl Benzoate, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone.
Bottom line: if you are categorically against silicones, then this tool is not for you at all. But it should be borne in mind that it is hardly possible to find cosmetic oils without silicones in the composition.
For those who are loyal to silicones or understand that hair care is often impossible without them (do not forget that the hair itself is already a “dead” structure), the remedy will come in handy. Silicones will successfully cope with the problems that the manufacturer promises to solve. Argan oil (there is very little of it, due to the high cost of raw materials) will “heal” hair to a small extent.
