1. Oway Styling Hero Ingredients
Biodynamic White Horehound
Biodynamic White Horehound is the first active ingredient found in the Oway Styling line. Horehound is a very astringent, invigorating and refreshing extract. Biodynamic White Horehound will reinforce the skin and hair structure, as well as provide UV protection! It is a soothing anti-irritant that is great for after-sun care. We love that it defends against ultraviolet radiation, even in styling products!
Organic Black Quinoa
Organic Black Quinoa is known as “vegetable caviar” rich in high quality plant proteins and amino acids to strengthen and protect the hair. It repairs hair naturally by nourishing and hydrating the scalp.
Biodynamic Lemon Balm
Biodynamic Lemon Balm is rich in Vitamin C and antioxidants that revive and brighten lackluster skin and hair. As a hydrolate, which is what is left after the steam-distillation, it has soothing and calming properties properties. It is a great ingredient for those who tend to have excess oil, as it helps balance those levels.
