Apple Cider Vinegar (Apfelessig)
Cider vinegar is very popular for hair and skin care, thanks to its purifying, shining and detangling properties. In a water solution, it is thought to restore the skin's balance, helping to tackle the causes of dandruff and acne.
Cider vinegar is made by the fermentation of apple cider. During the fermentation process, sugar in the apple cider is broken down by bacteria and yeast into alcohol and then into vinegar.
The sour taste of cider vinegar comes from the acetic and malic acid it contains, which are also responsible for restoring the acid mantle of the skin and making hair’s cuticles lie down flat, for an ultimate shine effect.
