Roucou oil

Why is roucou among the propositions from Davines? Well, roucou oil is a key ingredient of all the hair cosmetics for a good reason. Natural roucou oil is obtained from the Amazon tree called Bixa Orellana, which is also know as Annato. This plant contains greater amount of beta-carotene than carrots. On top of that, the oil contains vitamins and ellagic acid.

This is why roucou oil:

  • repairs hair structure, strengthens and nourishes,
  • speeds up hair growth and causes baby hair to appear,
  • eliminates damage to the cells under the impact of UV or free radicals,
  • makes hair elastic and eliminates effects of ageing on hair.
