UV Protection and More!

by Chrissy Kaufman July 27, 2017

EVOLVh products are full of healthy ingredients that penetrate your hair’s exterior and work magic! This summer we are focusing on the benefits offered by two amazing oils found in EVOLVh products: Red Raspberry Seed Oil in SmartStart and SmartVolume Leave-in Conditioner sprays and Sunflower Oil in UltraShine Shampoo & Conditioner and UltraRepair Masque.

Did you know that red raspberry seed oil provides UVA, UVB and UVC protection? Clinical studies have found that the UVA and UVB protection afforded by raspberry seed oil is reportedly similar to titanium dioxide with an SPF protection factor against UVB rays of 28-50, and an SPF protection factor against UVA rays of around 8. The ellagic acid in raspberry oil makes it effective at absorbing both UV-B and UV-C rays with an SPF of up to 50.

In addition to UV protection, red raspberry seed oil provides exceptional moisturizing and strengthening properties. The oil is packed with folic acid also known as Vitamin B. Folic acid is essential for the maintenance of healthy skin and hair and any deficiency can lead to hair loss. As such, the inclusion of raspberry oil in your hair’s treatment can maintain your hair from the root to the tip, adding strength and an illustrious shine.

Benefits of red raspberry seed oil for hair:

  • Vitamin C prevents moisture loss, promoting a healthy scalp.
  • Nurtures hair strands and helps to mend split ends.
  • Full of B Vitamins to reduce hair loss and generates new growth.
  • Promotes silky, soft hair and adds elasticity and suppleness.
  • Gives hair a beautiful shine and luster.

UltraShine Shampoo & Conditioner and UltraRepair Masque contain sunflower oil, which is rich in vitamins like A, B, C and E and minerals like iron, potassium and calcium. Ample content of essential nutrients, antioxidants and fatty acids make sunflower oil highly beneficial for hair health.

Exposure to the sun’s UV rays cause free radicals to appear, which damage to your hair cells. Vitamin E’s antioxidant elements hunt free radicals and prevent them from destroying your hair.

In addition, Vitamin E is known to be an excellent moisturizing agent that hydrates your hair. A scalp that is healthy and well-nourished can promote hair growth. Vitamin E also contains antioxidant properties responsible for preventing hair loss.

Sunflower oil contains high levels of Oleic Acid, which is an Omega 9 acid. Omega 9 acid is known to be one of the essential acids that stimulates natural hair growth. Omega 9 acid is also responsible for preventing brittle hair and hair loss. 

These are just a few of the benefits of red raspberry seed oil and sunflower oil! In short, they protect from UV damage, and condition your hair, making it smoother, shinier, healthier and stronger with every application!
