Fresh Organic Fair Trade Bananas (Musa Paradisica)
Bananas are incredibly nutritious; they're rich in vitamins and minerals, and have a high potassium content. When applied topically, they soften, protect and nourish the skin. We use bananas in haircare products to provide a thicker texture to formulas, and to moisturize and give pliability to the hair.
The banana plant is a huge, perennial herb. Its trunk consists of tightly wrapped leaf sheaths. Its true stem pushes up from the centre and grows flower spikes or buds. Blossoms grow into upturned "fingers," and there can be as many as twenty in each bunch.
