Tea Tree, Peppermint, & Shikakai
Melaleuca Alternifolia, also called the narrow-leaved paperbark or tea tree, is a small shrub that grows in parts of Australia. The oil from it’s leaves is used as a topical antibacterial and antiseptic. Shikai uses tea tree oil in the Tea Tree Shampoo and Conditioner to clean and clear the scalp.
Peppermint is a naturally occurring plant which can can be found in many places in the world. It has a high content of menthol which can chemically trigger the cold-sensitive receptors in the skin and cause a cooling sensation. Shikai uses both peppermint and menthol in the Tea Tree Shampoo and Conditioner to create a refreshing, cool tingle on the scalp.
Known as the world’s oldest shampoo, shikakai powder has been used for centuries to cleanse hair. Shikai makes an extract from shikakai powder that is the heart of the Tea Tree Natural shampoo.
Chemistry & Nature
In 1970, Dr. Dennis Sepp, an organic chemist, began exploring natural, ayurvedic ingredients for hair and skin care. As a scientist, Dr.Sepp knew that the natural world offered functional ingredients that were better and safer than conventional chemical ingredients. His first study was with shikakai (Acacia Concinna), a traditional Indian herbal used for cleansing the hair. He created a water soluble extract from shikakai powder that maintains the effectiveness of the ancient remedies. The result was Shikai shampoo, and the beginning of the Shikai natural products company. Shikai now manufactures more than 50 products, sold in premium markets all over the world.
Shikai products are unique, effective natural solutions. Using ancient ingredients like shikakai and the modern technology of omega-6 oil, Shikai has forged a new direction in both hair and skin care.
