This shampoo formulated without sulfate foaming agents helps preserve the brilliance of color-treated hair. Its formula combines 5 essential oils (geranium, rosemary, cedar, palmarosa and bergamot) with a protective grape seed extract to help prevent color from fading while preserving its radiance. The creamy texture transforms into a generous foam to delicately cleanse hair weakened by color treatment.
The distillation of essential oils is at the heart of L’OCCITANE. A process that captures the highest concentration of a plant’s benefits, it was many years ago in Provence that our Founder, Olivier Baussan,
first distilled rosemary and lavender. Our Aromachologie collection combines essential oils to offer effective and fragrant hair care to suit every need.
