Healthy Lifestyle, Healthful Ingredients
Amazon Beauty and Rahua firmly believe that if an ingredient is healthy to eat, it must also be healthy to use on your hair or skin. Turns out that many super foods provide amazing hair and skin benefits.
Quinoa: This gluten-free wonder food, which hails from South America, lends itself to a plethora of versatile, healthy recipes thanks to its high level of protein, essential amino acids, fiber, and minerals like iron and magnesium. Not surprisingly, it also works miracles in revitalizing hair and skin. A key organic ingredient in many Rahua formulas, quinoa promotes healing and moisture retention and works as a building block for cleansing, conditioning, moisturizing, and styling products.
Raspberry Leaf: More than just a beautiful berry, the leaves of raspberries have been used for centuries as a medicinal tea, believed to help sleep problems, upset stomach, sore throat, and leg cramps. Its combination of nutrients including magnesium, potassium, iron, and b-vitamins make it particularly beneficial for pregnant women, easing morning sickness and even labor. When used topically, raspberry leaf’s astringent and anti-inflammatory properties can sooth sunburn, eczema, and rashes. And for hair care, it hydrates, protects hair from environmental aggressors, and promotes scalp health.
Aloe Vera: The benefits of aloe vera are legion: it relieves sunburn, irritation and rashes, and helps heal wounds. When drunk as a juice, aloe vera boosts the immune system, fights free radical damage, and may even help control diabetes. Full of antioxidants, enzymes, and minerals like calcium, copper, and zinc, aloe vera is a potent natural treatment for dry skin and hair, and appears in many beauty products. In shampoo and conditioners, it promotes a healthy, bacteria free scalp, while it’s vitamins and minerals promote hair growth and strength.
Coconut: The news about coconut just keeps getting better and better. The meat of this amazing fruit appears to protect against heart disease and stroke; the oil feeds the brain, curbs appetite, and enhances the immune system; and the water is loaded with electrolytes that prevent dehydration and boost energy. When used in hair care products, coconut oil fights dry, brittle locks, and adds natural sheen. A fabulous moisturizer, coconut oil prevents dryness and flaking and can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and skin slackening when included in skin care.
Sunflower Seed Oil: Gorgeous to look at, sunflowers have seeds that produce oil used in healthy cooking and beauty products. The pressed oil is full of omega-6s and -9s and vitamin E, which support a healthy heart, boost the immune system, increase energy, and reduce inflammation. Topically, it can improve the look and feel of hair and skin, thanks to the high vitamin E content. Rahua loves sunflower seed oil for it’s anti-frizz benefits, as well as promotion of scalp health and hair growth.
