Magnolia grandiflora L.

Family Magnoliaceae

USE IN KLORANE PRODUCTS

The cosmetics industry uses the fragrant properties of Magnolia flowers to make perfumes, incense and essential oils. KLORANE Laboratories have gone further in their research and have discovered the reflective and protective power of Magnolia Wax. We have chosen the Magnolia grandiflora L. species, which is cultivated in south-west France respecting the surrounding ecosystems at Engandou nurseries, a partner who fulfills the rigorous KLORANE’s Phytofilière ® specifications.
Magnolia wax extract is obtained by immersing the leaves in an organic solvent. After the wax is solubilized, the solution is collected and the solvent evaporated. The residue is pure wax, which is meticulously filtered and standardized before being used in the KLORANE range of hair care products with Magnolia Wax.

PLANT EXTRACT CHARACTERISTICS

A majestic plant from the Magnoliaceae family, the Magnolia is recognized by its shiny, resistant leaves. This remarkable shine comes from a surface wax which covers the cuticle, protecting them from pathogenic agents, dehydration and UV radiation. The wax acts by reflecting the light and gives the leaves an exceptional shine.

BOTANICAL FACT SHEET

The Magnolia is a big, beautiful tree with a pyramidal shape and can grow up to 30m high in its natural state. It has persistent and strong leaves; simple, ob-oval to elliptical with smooth edges. Their upper side is a beautiful bright green

The Magnolia’s flowers appear particularly late on the adult trees (from 25 years). The beautiful, fragrant flowers last from June to October in France.

Give your hair intense shine.

Shine is not only the main criteria for hair beauty, but also a sign of a completely healthy hair shaft. Also, regardless of hair type, everyone dreams of radiant hair that shines with health. However, when subjected to repeated external aggressions (UV rays, pollution, etc, brushing and other chemical treatments, your hair can become dull and lose its natural shine: the cuticle becomes damaged and the scales lift and can no longer fully reflect the light.
To reveal and intensify your hair’s shine; KLORANE Laboratories have used their scientific plant expertise to draw the perfect shine-boosting ingredient from nature: Magnolia leaves.
