Mint is known for its strong, fresh flavor and invigorating scent, but do you know all the cool benefits of this stimulating ingredient?
Used widely in tea, chewing gum, aromatherapy and cosmetics, mint is refreshing and cleansing. And that tingly fresh feeling we associate with it? It’s an effect of menthol, a compound found within its plant. Menthol triggers cold-sensitive receptors in our skin, giving you a cooling sensation that feels super fresh.
Besides that cool and tingly sensation, all types of mint hold amazing and effective benefits for the scalp, hair and skin.
Balancing and cleansing
Mint being an abundant source of menthol also means it holds strong antibacterial properties. We use mint often in skincare and haircare to for its toning, decongesting and cleansing benefits.
In our bestselling Mask of Magnaminty - Self-preserving Power Mask, a blend of kaolin clay and peppermint oil rids your pores of debris, giving you a delightfully tingly clean sensation. The oil lends its fresh and cleansing qualities to our Pink Peppermint Foot Lotion, making it the perfect thing for soothing sore or tired feet after a long day. And our Wiccy Magic Muscles Massage Bar contains peppermint oil along with cinnamon leaf oil blended into a melty cocoa butter base to ease sore muscles and clear tired minds.
For hair and scalp benefits, we use fresh mint infusion, peppermint oil and spearmint oil to deep clean and add a stimulating sensation. We use this tingly, cooling blend to revitalize the scalp and promote healthy hair in products like Roots Hair Treatment and Rehab Shampoo.
