Chlorophyll absorbs light in the chloroplasts of plant cells and drives the reaction of photosynthesis. It uses the energy of light to fix carbon dioxide into carbohydrate and uses this to grow.
Studies have suggested that chlorophyll has protective, healing qualities.
Through using chlorophyll, we have found that it helps to balance the skin. In our Love Lettuce fresh face mask, chlorophyllin (Cl 75810) works with other fresh ingredients to balance the skins sebum production. It also creates the distinctive green colour of the product.
We use chlorophyllin in our Jungle solid conditioner; it adds a vibrant, green pigment to the bar and soothes the scalp.
