Ingredient Spotlight on… Klorane

Love shampoos that boast botanicals? (Silly question…who doesn’t?) Klorane invented the concept back in 1966, when French pharmacist Pierre Fabre created the first plant-based shampoo with chamomile – the first formula ever made with active plant ingredients. The company continues the tradition today with more products that target concerns with from-the-earth powerhouses. Formulated with the finest natural extracts, Klorane’s offerings have expanded to include both hair and skincare so we thought it was time to take a deep dive into those all-important ingredients…


True to their roots, Klorane harness the power of French cornflower to gently tackle make-up removal in their Floral Water Make-up Remover (sampled in some of the July Birchboxes!), Eye Make-up Remover Lotion and Make-up Remover Wipes. The anthocyanins (a type of antioxidant) in cornflowers have strong anti-inflammatory properties making it a great ingredient for calming inflammation and combating tired, itchy or puffy eyes. Not only is this ideal for helping to remove make-up from more sensitive peepers but it has the added benefit of soothing tired eyes after a long day.


Although sweet in taste, mangoes are traditionally known and used for their nourishing benefits since they have scientifically-proven restorative properties. That’s why Klorane chose the superfruit for this nourishing shampoo and conditioner. Packed with mangoes grown exclusively in India, each bottle contains rich fatty acids that replenish and moisturise dry, brittle hair while providing a thorough cleanse (and a fresh, delectable scent). The result: suppler, silkier, and softer hair with less breakage.


A natural extract found in pomegranate peel is a must-have ingredient for anyone with colour-treated hair. Klorane have added it to their Colour Enhancing Shampoo and Conditioner as it helps to bind artificial colour to your hair’s natural keratin and prevent it from fading. Its effectiveness has actually been scientifically proven and patented: on average, colour will last twice as long!


Now we know you might love oat milk for your morning cereal, but have you considered the benefits it could have for your hair? A star ingredient in Klorane’s beloved dry shampoo, oat milk is naturally conditioning and detangling – making it ideal for all hair types! Even better, it helps to soothe and protect even the most sensitive of scalps so your hair won’t be left feeling weighed down or irritated.
