Why are these ingredients beneficial?
Bananas are rich in vitamins B, A, C, E and minerals such as calcium, phosphor and azote, as well as carbohydrates, all of which are essential for proper metabolic function. They are commonly referred to as the ‘golden fruits’ in Ayurveda medicine. As of lately, bananas are frequently used in the cosmetic industry owing to the large amounts of tryptophan, an essential amino acid.
Abundant in vitamin B and D, essential for proper body function, eggs are a great contribution to facial and hair masks. They are a rich source of amino acids and lecithin.
The nutritional properties of honey can effectively stimulate hair growth, making it at the same time softer and more manageable. Plus, honey successfully fights the damage caused by environmental toxins thus preventing hair follicle degeneration.
In addition, honey is abundant in vitamins C, A, D, K, B complex, organic acids, minerals, including potassium, phosphor, chloride, sodium, etc., which makes it a common ingredient in a number of face, hair and body care products.
Black beer packs a large amount of unfermented sugars, organic acids, mineral salts, vitamins, such as B1, B2, B6, and PP. Plus, it’s a rich source of flavonoids.
