Fresh Free Range Eggs

Eggs are one of the most nutritious foods available. They contain most of the known vitamins, apart from vitamin C, and they are also rich in minerals, such as selenium and zinc. They are a particularly good source of B-vitamins, particularly B2 (riboflavin) and B12 and vitamins D and A.

Eggs are known for their high protein content. The protein in eggs contains all the essential amino acids that the human body requires.

Approximately 12.5% of the weight of an egg is protein and74% of it is water.

Chickens (Gallus gallus domesticus) are thought descended from the wild red and grey jungle fowl of India (Gallus gallus and Gallus sonneratii). They have been domesticated for approximately 4,000 years and commercial egg production became popular from the 1800s onwards.

Our free-range eggs come from small flocks kept on family run farms, where the welfare standards and conditions exceed those required.

We use free-range eggs in both our H’suan Wen Hua hair treatment and Curly Wurly shampoo. The eggs form a protective and conditioning coating on the hair. The protein content of the eggs adds lustrous shine to the hair and helps increase its tensile strength. The vitamin D content can help to promote new hair growth.

Eggs have been used as a hair-strengthening folk remedy for centuries. Egg shampoos became very fashionable, though many of them didn’t actually contain any egg!

In our Cosmetic Warrior and Brazened Honey Fresh Face Masks, the vitamin A in the free-range eggs will help to maintain healthy skin by regulating natural sebum production.
