The active superfoods

Soap nuts from the Himalaya

According to an ancient tradition from the Himalaya, we use organic soap nuts to wash our skin in a natural manner. It cleanses the skin thoroughly, without irritating or drying out the skin. These soap nuts are a natural alternative for aggressive detergent.

Mandarine verte

Green mandarin has an invigorating and anti-stress effect. The herbal and refreshing scent gives you tons of energy right away.

Aloe vera gel

Aloe vera gel is used for its soothing and skin care effects. Due to its soothing and skin care properties, we have added aloe vera in all three of our new products.

Exquisite scent composition

For the scent we decided on a blend of nine exquisite essential oils: cedarwood as a base, green mandarin as top nut, complemented by palmarosa, lemongrass, curcuma, junipers, patchouli, ylang-ylang and rhododendron from the highlands.

  • As a body wash - During the shower, massage two or three pumps of the body wash onto the body. In contact with water, the shower gel changes in consistency in a foaming lotion. Then rinse off.
  • As a hand wash - Wash your hands with the hand wash. One pump is enough. Rinse off.

Banish silicones and sulphates from your bathroom cabinet!

The problem with sulphates

Most shampoos are based on Sodium Laureth Sulphate (SLS) or Sodium Laurel Ether (SLES). The problem with sulphates is that they break off the natural protective layer of your skin and hair. Your hair becomes lifeless and your skin dries out which irritates the skin. Moreover, sulphates are harmful to the environment.

That’s why we as CÎME decided to develop a shampoo and hand & body wash based on soap nuts, originating from the soap tree or the Sapindus Mukorossi Gaertn. These aren’t harmful to the environment and leaves the natural protective layer intact. A win-win situation!

More information on the Nepalese soap nuts and our fair-trade projects can be found in this blog article from our latest trip to Nepal.

 

Build down the silicones in your conditioner

Silicones are used in traditional conditioners because they can create a protective water-resistant layer on your hair. This causes a build up effect. Because they are water-resistant, it can’t be simply rinsed off which causes the layers to build up. As a consequence, the hair suffocates, and the nourishing oils can’t penetrate the hair, with i.e. heavy, lifeless, fragile and brittle hair as a consequence. Moreover, silicones are just as sulphates bad for the environment.
Our alternative? A volume conditioner based on chiuri butter from Nepal!
