We can easily agree that taking care of our skin is important. We want to keep it supple, soft and youthful. Why not do the same for our hair?
Antonin .B has pulled together, from the botanical realm, over a dozen of plant based oils and extracts to do just that.
The Ceramides Enriched Desert Serum is a featherweight cocktail of premium organic botanical. It is formulated to deeply penetrate your hair and makes it stronger, softer and healthier without weighing it down.
It nourishes and rejuvenates dry and colour treated hair by replenishing its natural lipids. By smoothing the cuticles on your hair shaft, it combats frizz and porosity which helps maintain moisture in your hair.
The Ceramides Enriched Desert Serum is particularly suitable for dry, colour treated or chemically processed hair. It is also ideal for blow dries and heat styling.
I have fine hair. Will the Serum weigh my hair down?
On fine hair, we recommend being more strict with the amounts you use: 2 drops maximum per use. Your hair will remain light and feel good to the touch. It is only a matter of dosage.
Who is this product best suitable for
The Ceramides Enriched Desert Serum is suitable for all hair types: long, short, thin, thick, straight, frizzy, curly or afro.
How long does it last?
With an average of 3 drops per use, you should get a bit over 90 uses out of the Serum.
Is the Serum vegan?
Yes. The Serum is vegan. It contains no animal derived ingredient.
Is the Serum cruelty free?
Absolutely. Antonin .B is a completely cruelty free brand.
UV and light resistant black glass
The Serum bears our signature scent. It is constructed on a sensual and vaguely powdery base of organic ylang-ylang flower distillate. Rising from the base, comes a crispy fresh heart of lemon and lime peel surrounded with the spicy and rounded notes of palmarosa and Bourbon geranium.
It is our modern interpretation of the green experience: sensual, fresh and light. And it is suitable for both women and men.
Every day leave-in
Depending on the length, thickness and texture of your hair, you will need an average of 2 to 4 drops per use. Warm the drops between your hands and apply to your hair, insisting on your ends.
If you have very fine or thinning hair, avoid your roots.
Distribute about a dropper full of Desert Serum throughout your hair (preferably slightly damp hair). Leave to deep condition overnight or under a heating cap. Then shampoo as usual.
Blow drying tip
Distribute 2 to 3 drops of the Desert Serum on damp hair. Proceed to blow drying. Use hair straightener if desired. Then apply 1 to 2 extra drops to entire head for more shine and a longer lasting blow dry.
The production of the Serum supports communities at the edges of the Sahel desert who fight to maintain their way of life. Workers plant the desert date tree as a barrier against the desert in order to save their homes and avoid becoming the next refugees.
Thanks to this project, they have been able to create jobs locally and build schools – keeping the next generation closer to home.
Our products contain no GMOs and no synthetic ingredients (even the safe ones).
We do use science and green innovation in our products but only if the process does not create pollution and if we can keep our products 100% nature-sourced.
We are a cruelty free brand. Everything we do, we do with love.
The list of ingredients reads like a high-end face serum and that’s because we respect your hair.
Desert date, kukui and hazelnut provide a fluid and penetrating texture with vitamins, essential fatty acids and antioxidants to build up your hair’s resilience to the elements.
Borage is very rich in Omega-6 fatty acids. It is anti-ageing and keeps moisture levels high; while Brazil nut brings minerals, including selenium, to seal your ends and prevent splitting.
Jojoba balances your scalp’s production of sebum and coconut oil enhances the formula with its special affinity with your hair’s natural proteins.
Safflower is light and provides its own grade of natural ceramides. Broccoli and Abyssinian oils are nourishing and wonderful organic substitutes for silicones. They both provide a pleasant gliding texture and boost your hair’s shine.
In order to make the formula even more efficient, we have enriched it with wheat-sourced ceramides that penetrate the hair shaft in order to fill in the holes and bruises left by chemical processing and heat styling.
The Serum is infused with ylang-ylang essential oil to fortify and add shine; as well lemon, lime, palmarosa and Bourbon geranium to detoxify and purify.
