Nourishing and conditioning
Products with this ingredient

Bananas are rich in vitamins and minerals, and have a high potassium content. They are moisturising on the skin and help to condition the hair effectively.



The banana plant (Musa paradisiaca) is a huge, perennial herb. Its trunk consists of tightly wrapped leaf sheaths. Its 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 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 their unique texture.

Bananas 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.
