Enriched with Bamboo Fibre, Inoar Resistance Bamboo Fiber harnesses the power of nature to deliver beautiful hair.
This innovative range of organic and vegan hair care products from Inoar repairs fragile hair and strengthens strands, leaving them much brighter.
Contains keratin protein, selenium-rich Bamboo Fiber and Biotin to stimulate growth and treat the hair from the inside out.
Bamboo can be a great ally for your beauty routine, making your hair strong, bright, soft & promoting hair growth. The plant has always been used for various functions in the East, from food to building material, and in recent years, another great benefit of bamboo has been discovered: its role in rebuilding and moisturizing hair. Bamboo fibre, rich in amino acids, works on the porous, sensitized and brittle hair strands to replenish amino acids, an essential building block in healthy hair. Bamboo fibre also promotes water retention in the hair, ensuring hair’s hydration levels are improved.
Shampoo: With Bamboo Fibre this vegan shampoo cleanses and moisturises gently leaving no residue.
Conditioner: A vegan formula this conditioner improves strength and shine and delivers super moisturising powers leaving hair tangle free and super soft.
Essential Eco Info: 100% Vegan. Cruelty free, no sulfates or parabens.

New to South Africa, Nature Box is made with 100% natural cold pressed oils from fruits and nuts and target the most important needs in hair care and body care.
The Nature Box brand is also about pursuing better health and wellness, while respecting life, by adopting animal-free and chemical-free choices. These hair and body products are created for women who want quality and effectivity while living an authentic, conscious lifestyle.
There are four product lines from Nature Box that all contain cold-pressed oils extracted from fruit seeds and nuts: Avocado, Coconut, Apricot and Almond. Cold pressing is the most efficient extraction process, allowing the oil’s essential nutrients to be entirely preserved to deliver a nutritional punch to the hair and skin.
Nature Box products are neither refined nor processed, meaning all their valuable vitamins in the oils, such as A, B, C, D and E, as well as antioxidants and healthy fatty acids, are not lost.
The range of natural ingredients used in the Nature Box range meets a whole host of beauty needs, from the tips of the hair down to the pores, without heaviness or greasiness. The product range includes ten hair care products (and eight body care products)
Shampoo: (Almond) This shampoo contains vitamins and an anti-oxidant boost to enhance hair volume and softness.
Conditioner: (Almond) This conditioner is lightweight and will leave hair feeling light as air.
Essential Eco Info: The formulas are vegan certified, up to 98% natural and free from certain chemicals including sulfates, parabens, silicones and artificial colouring although this range is not organic. Nature Box also uses recycled plastic when possible (25%). The brand also chooses to use sustainable ingredients, for instance, the farming of palm oil has been identified as a cause of deforestation so Nature Box has committed to using sustainably produced palm oil from Nigeria.
The Avocado line protects and provides deep repair to hair and skin. Biotin in avocado oil encourages keratin production, making it a natural shine booster for hair.
The Coconut line refreshes and moisturises. Coconut oil has soothing properties and provides intense hydration.
The Apricot line leaves hair and skin silky soft and smooth. Unsaturated fatty acids and vitamin A in apricot oil create a natural protective barrier for the skin.
The Almond line provides volume and gentle care for sensitive skin and scalp. Antioxidant properties in almond oil also protect the skin and provide a gorgeous glow. This shampoo offers weightless volume and fullness while the conditioner promises airy hair without any build up.
