EDEN BodyWorks actually went green a long while back when we first launched our Peppermint Tea Tree Collection; you know, the one with the green lids?
Yup! That’s the one!
In honor of Earth Day this past weekend, we wanted to rehash what makes the natural ingredients of our Peppermint Tea Tree collection both safe and beneficial for your hair.
To begin, we’d like to demystify the myth surrounding clarifying shampoos. By now we’ve all been warned to steer clear of sulfates and their unnatural chemicals which can be harsh and drying to hair follicles. Yet still, it is often thought that sulfates are the only ingredients that can truly clarify the scalp and hair, and this leaves many people wary of natural clarifying shampoos. However, it is important to note that sulfates are NOT the only avenue to clarifying your hair and scalp!
Take our Peppermint Tea Tree Shampoo for example. It is indeed a clarifying shampoo, but it is also natural and sulfate-free… but how?
Let’s start with the source.
Where do Peppermint and Tea Tree Oil originate from?
Peppermint Oil comes from a plant that is native to both European and Middle Eastern countries, while Tea Tree oil is from the leaves of a plant found in Southeast Queensland and the Northeast coast of New South Wales, Australia.
How do these oils cleanse and benefit the hair?
Peppermint and Tea Tree Oil both have antiseptic properties which help to eliminate dandruff and fight off lice. That’s where the refreshing tingle of the Peppermint Tea Tree products comes from! This aids in unclogging hair follicles and in nourishing the roots. Tea Tree Oil also has antioxidant properties which help stimulate hair growth and help heal the scalp of dryness and flakiness.
So you see, it is possible to get that squeaky clean feeling the natural way - without drying out your hair! What a weight that is off the shoulders, because let’s face it, we all need to get rid of a little build-up sometimes.
In the comments below, tell us which products in the Peppermint Tea Tree collection you have “gone green” with.
We’ll see you back here next week. Thanks for reading!
