Importance of Sebum


Allowing sebum to flow

An important element of a healthy scalp – and one which the Juniper Scalp Therapy Shampoo helps greatly with is the free-flow of sebum from the hair follicles to the hair and along the hair shaft.

 Sebum is the best conditioning agent in the world and is made, exclusively, for each and every one of us.

But when the scalp is unhealthy, this oil is prevented from doing its job properly, either because its composition is degraded by micro-organisms and its ability to flow smoothly along the hair shaft is diminished, or because a build-up of dead skin cells on the surface of the scalp.


The Juniper Scalp Therapy Shampoo is designed to prevent this occurring and to allow the skin’s natural oil to have a superb, natural moisturising effect on the hair. By keeping the scalp healthy, this shampoo not only ensures that the natural oil is flowing unhindered from the skin and along the hair, but the rich blend of natural, therapeutic oils in the shampoo – juniper, corn mint, thyme, tea tree and rosemary oils – impart long lasting moisture leaving your hair soft, shiny and in wonderful condition.
