A Completely Polyherbal Conditioning and Antioxidant Shampoo- A Phytochemical Study and Pharmaceutical Evaluation
Researchers have recently developed a conditioning shampoo using flavonoids and a foaming agent that nourishes hair and provides antimicrobial effects. Generic storebought shampoos have been found to have detrimental effects on hair follicles and scalp health, often stripping them of their natural oils and causing dryness and irritation. The leaves of Salix babylonica L., Ziziphus spina-christi L. (Willd), and Glycyrrhiza glabra rhizomes were used to make an extract rich in flavonoids and other phenolic compounds. The extract was altered until the ideal microbial effect was found and then combined with a foaming agent, forming the natural shampoo. Future research should continue to develop a line of all-natural cosmetic products for those who are sensitive or wish to avoid chemicals.
This piece reflects the current trend of the beauty industry and the apparent future of cosmetics as all-natural products. Researchers and estheticians will likely create products that appease trend-followers desire to endorse all-natural products while also enjoying the effects of the products that have been enhanced by modern science. The cannabis industry, will all of the benefits provided by cannabinoids, flavonoids, and terpenes, would do well to capitalize on the rapidly growing and fiercely loyal beauty community by promoting natural products that are as effective as they are trendy.
