Hair Spray and Dry Shampoo from Rahua

Rahua Defining Hair Spray and Voluminous Dry Shampoo
Two new haircare products from Rahua:

DEFINING HAIR SPRAY WITH STYLING CAPABILITIES: A medium hold, fast drying, non-aerosol Defining Hair Spray that is 90% natural – unheard of for a hairspray! Made with organic ingredients, Rahua Defining Hair Spray creates definition, hold and lasting, touchable style. This brushable spray allows for re-styling throughout the day. But the hold is strong enough to use with any type of styling device, from high-tech (blow dryer, curling iron, flat iron) to low-tech (brush, rollers, paper cup, soda can, rolled rags).  Rahua’s Defining Hair Spray offers UV protection for hair, and is color safe, vegan and gluten free. Our innovative formula finally provides a natural and safe spray that holds their artistic styles all day long. You can easily and safely recreate salon-inspired long-lasting styles at home.

VOLUMINOUS DRY SHAMPOO: A 100% natural Voluminous Dry Shampoo that adds volume, cleans and styles hair – all without water!  The gluten-free, vegan formula is made with organic ingredients and state of the art natural dry shampoo technology. It is aerosol-free in a recyclable, eco-squeeze dispenser. Age-old plant and mineral based ingredients work together to absorb oil, sweat and dirt that accumulate throughout the day. Hair is left voluminous and refreshed, with a light, clean scent. Their specially developed formula includes a proprietary blend of plant-based ingredients combined with cosmetic mineral clay, cassava starch, antiseptic star anise, and Madagascar vanilla bean.

Phytomer XMF BOGO

Phytomer PIONNIÈRE XMF Perfection Youth Cream
Buy One Get One.
Through the end of June, purchase a 50 ml size of Phytomer PIONNIÈRE XMF Perfection Youth Cream and receive a complimentary travel size (15 ml) $70 value.

This cream is magic.

PHYTOMER revolutionizes the cosmetic approach to anti-aging with XMF, an advanced ingredient that creates an invisible film on the skin's surface to instantly smooth and visibly correct signs of aging.
Phytomer PIONNIÉRE XMF Perfection Youth Cream
An exclusive discovery by PHYTOMER Advanced Research, XMF is an EPS – a 100% natural advanced ingredient – with exceptional smoothing and densifying properties.

The PHYTOMER scientific team identified a new and 100% natural source of marine ingredients: ExoPolySaccharides, or EPS. Mainly composed of sugars, they are produced by plankton micro-organisms directly in their environment to ensure defense, nutrition or adhesion functions. They represent the future of marine cosmetics with:

 • An almost infinite amount of applications: each micro-organism produces its own unique EPS, which has no land-sourced equivalent.
 • Unprecedented benefits for the skin: each EPS has specific properties in terms of texture, cellular activation and, for certain types, powerful and instantaneous resurfacing effects.

To obtain EPS, PHYTOMER researchers have developed a high-tech cultivation program in the laboratory as it is impossible to synthesize them chemically. This involves isolating each micro-organism and placing it in a bioreactor in specific conditions that encourage the synthesis of its EPS. The next step is to extract this EPS and purify it without the use of a chemical solvent. This is a natural production method that ensures extreme purity and optimal quality of the ingredient.

Therefore, the combination of an exceptional understanding of the marine world and the mastery of advanced scientific techniques now allows PHYTOMER to initiate a new direction in blue cosmetology with EPS.
