Products with this ingredient

Irish moss (Chondrus crispus) is a bushy, red seaweed found on the Atlantic coast of Europe, which grows between the tide lines to roughly 6 inches tall. It can be found down to a depth of 15 feet.



The seaweed is harvested from spring to autumn. It is dried, and then ground to a powder.

We use the powder in solid products because it is most suitable for this type of formulation. Once the product is combined with water, a gel is produced.

In our Caca hair colours, the gel helps form a paste which makes it easier to apply to the dry hair; once applied, it softens the hair and makes it more flexible.

In the truckle solid shampoo, the gel creates a pleasant texture to the lather while softening the hair at the same time.

Irish moss is used in our The Hair Doctor hair treatment both as a decoction, creating a gel base, and as a powder to give it its luxurious texture. Combining the two produces a powerful treatment that conditions deeply, resulting in glossy and bouncy hair.
