Description

Description

The banana plant (Musa paradisiaca) is a huge, perennial herb. Its trunk consists of tightly wrapped leaf sheaths. It’s true stem pushes up from the centre and grows flower spikes or buds. Blossoms grow into upturned ‘fingers’ and there can be as many as twenty in each bunch. Some plants have been in production for over a hundred years.

Fully ripened bananas have antifungal principles in both the peel and the pulp. They are emollient and highly moisturising; when applied topically they soften the skin, making it flexible and pliable. They consist of 12% starch and lots of fibre, giving them the texture that we love.

Fresh, Fair Trade bananas (usually organic too) are used in hair treatments to give the product a thicker texture, while also softening and conditioning the hair for greater sleekness and better control.
