Ingredients from packaging:

Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Prunus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Oryza Sativa (Rice Bran) Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride (Fractionated Coconut Oil), Prunus Dulcis (Almond) Wax, Camellia Oleifera (Camellia) Oil, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Flower Extract, Rosa Multiflora (Rose) Flower Extract, Hibiscus Rosa-Senensis (Hibiscus) Flower Extract, Viola Tricolor (Wild Pansy) Extract, Passiflora Incarnata (Passionflower) Extract, Tagetes Erecta (Marigold) Flower Extract, Green Tea (Camellia Sinensis) Leaf Extract, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Natural Fragrance*, Citonellol**, Geraniol**

Directions from packaging:

Sealing: After moisturising hair with the Floral Hydration Mist and/or oiling hair with the African Citrus Oil, warm a pea-sized amount of butter between your palms and distribute throughout hair from roots to ends to lock in the moisture to provide long term hydration. Can be used as the final step of the L.O.C method. Twirling: Apply as above, then scrunch to create curls, or twirl strands between your fingers to create curls. Allow to air dry. Twisting/Braiding: Apply to twist outs, braid outs, corn rows and protective styles to add shine and definition. For a no-rinse deep conditioning treatment: Apply to clean and damp hair, with a focus on your ends as the driest. Cover hair with a shower cap. Apply heat if desired to improve penetration. Leave in to restore moisture, shine to dull and dry hair during the week. Best used on damp hair, after application of the Floral Hydration Hair Mist to provide an additional layer to help seal in the water/hydration applied.

Understanding scores

Cosmetics and personal care products are not required to be tested for safety before being allowed on the market. The Skin Deep® scoring system was designed to help the public understand whether a product is safe to use or whether it contains ingredients of concern.

Every product and ingredient in Skin Deep gets a two-part score – one for hazard and one for data availability. The safest products score well by both measures, with a low hazard rating and a fair or better data availability rating.

HOW WE DETERMINE SCORES

Hazard score

The Skin Deep ingredient hazard score, from 1 to 10, reflects known and suspected hazards linked to the ingredients. The EWG VERIFIED™ mark means a product meets EWG’s strictest criteria for transparency and health.

Score legend

Data availability

The Skin Deep data availability rating reflects the number of scientific studies about the product or ingredient in the published scientific literature.
