Beer: we love drinking it, but it may not be the first thing on your mind when thinking about hair care. You would be surprised to know how much super-nutrients this tasty beverage contains!
Beer has been around for centuries. From the Roman civilization to our modern-day era, nothing much has changed except for the technique, which beer fans around the world have perfected throughout the ages. But scientific studies have been increasingly showing us how really beneficial beer is for us, and, notably, for our hair! As you will see, there are many reasons why Santa Barba has chosen beer to be an essential part of its products range.
Beer is created from four main ingredients – water, barley, hops and yeast-, all loaded with super-nutrients which nourish and protect the hair, giving extra shine, volume and strength.
So, for a start, it is rich in B vitamins like niacin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid, vitamins B6 and B12 and folate, an amazing source of regeneration for the skin – and, therefore, the hair.
Ingredient number two, Barley, is packed with a lot of vitamins and minerals like potassium, magnesium or calcium that contribute to healthy skin.
As for the malt and hops found in beer, they are super-rich with protein, which nourishes and strengthens the hair. Hop keeps your skin young and healthy, is anti-inflammatory, reduces hair loss and helps control and eliminate dandruff.
The last key ingredient in beer, yeast, is well-known for its nutritional value; is a very effective ingredient for hair growth. It also prevents and treats dermatitis and eczema, neutralizing excess fat in the skin and hair, and is also rich in selenium, an antioxidant that delays aging and provides a lot of hydration.
Last but not least, beer contains a large amount of biotin, which is ideal for fighting acne, and helps regenerate and eliminate toxins in the skin. Biotin nourishes and strengthens the hair, stimulates growth, provides brightness and volume, controls and reduces dandruff, keeps the skin smooth and moisturized, prevents and treats dermatitis, and nurtures dehydrated and irritated skin.
As for Santa Barba’s hand-cut artisan beer soap and Mild Beer Shampoo and Conditioner for beards and hair, not only are loaded with all the nutrients, vitamins and minerals listed above, it is supercharged with them!
They are 100 % natural, contain concentrated extracts of malt hop and barley, for extra efficiency and results. Furthermore, the blend of natural oils (avocado, olive, castor, soybean, shea butter) and vitamin E will make your hair and beard look even more smooth and hydrated.
