4 Natural Botanical Extracts That Boost Hair and Skin Health

natural botanical extracts that boost hair & skin health

Have you ever looked at the back of a shampoo and conditioner bottle, only to find a bunch of ingredients you can’t pronounce or even begin to understand? 

At TEENOLOGY, when we were initially creating our groundbreaking shampoo and conditioner formulas for teens and young adults struggling with acne caused by hair and body care products, we scoured the shelves only to find other brands included a bunch of crazy or confusing ingredients that didn’t do the skin any favors. 

That’s why our founders started with the basics -- beneficial ingredients that our customers could easily understand, such as natural botanical extracts and powerful antioxidants. 

Namely, natural botanical extracts like sage, cucumber, peppermint and sweet almond that invigorate skin for a refreshing feel and improve hair for a revived appearance! 

Learn more about these 4 beneficial botanical extracts we include in some of the TEENOLOGY shampoos and conditioners. And how they work to kick acne to the curb and restore healthy hair! 

4 Natural Botanical Extracts that Benefit the Skin & Hair 

Sage Extract

An essential ingredient in all of our shampoos, sage extract improves and enhances blood flow to the scalp, which strengthens follicles to help you grow stronger, thicker, and healthier hair. Not to mention, sage has powerful attributes that can help build stronger follicles.

Additionally, sage extract is rich in vitamins and minerals, such as carotene, which helps to revitalize the look of skin by reducing inflammation and redness, and improving the look of scarring and dark spots caused by previous acne. 

Cucumber Extract

Everyone knows cucumber as the vegetable you put on your eyes during a spa treatment… but why? And how does it work to benefit the skin? 

Surprisingly, this somewhat boring vegetable can do wonders! For instance, cucumber improves the skin’s appearance by:

  • Lowering sebum levels (aka the skin’s natural oil) to reduce acne
  • Halting the breakdown of hyaluronic acid to restore the skin’s hydration
  • Soothing the skin to reduce irritation and inflammation (essential for warding off acne breakouts!) 

Additionally, cucumber is great for the hair, too! This underrated veg is thought to reduce the amount of hair falling out and lends a helping hand in ramping up the shininess of strands. 

Peppermint Extract

Peppermint extract is used in many hair and body care products lining the shelves! Why? Because it can help nourish the hair to promote thicker strands and heal hair damage. 

Additionally, peppermint extract stimulates the scalp for amplified growth and stimulates the mind for a brighter outlook on the day! 

But what does peppermint extract do for the skin? It has antiseptic and antimicrobial properties, which help to reduce acne breakouts by warding off the bacteria that causes them. Not to mention, peppermint extract soothes the skin and decreases inflammation for a more even skin tone. 

Sweet Almond Extract

Chock full of healthy fatty acids, vitamins and minerals, sweet almond extract can benefit the skin and hair by delivering essential hydration and moisturization for healthy hair strands and nourished skin. 

Even better, sweet almond extract contains powerful antioxidants, such as vitamin E, which work to reduce the look of blemishes, heal acne scarring, and soothe the skin for a revitalized appearance.
