Je weet al hoe je dagelijkse gewoonten van invloed zijn op hoe je haar eruitziet en aanvoelt… maar wist je dat natuurlijke extracten het geheim zijn voor gezonder, glanzend haar?
Planten- en fruitextracten zijn al eeuwenlang de medicinale oplossing van de natuur en inheemse planten uit Australië zijn de sterkste botanische middelen op aarde.
MUVO selecteert ingrediënten van verschillende leveranciers die van over de hele wereld komen, maar onze meest trotse ingrediënten zijn inheemse Australische extracten. Het zijn krachtpatsers van natuurlijke werkstoffen die nodig zijn om extreme, onvoorspelbare omstandigheden te bestrijden; ze zijn bestand tegen schade tot 50 graden hitte, slagen erin hun heldere kleuren in zowel bloemen als bladeren te behouden zonder te verbleken en beschermen zichzelf tegen de harde Australische omgeving. Hittebescherming, anti-kleurvervaging en waterretentie – allemaal kwaliteiten die we zoeken in onze haarverzorging.
MUVO heeft ervoor gekozen om samen te werken met Native Extracts Australia vanwege hun natuurgetrouwe plantprofielen en cellulaire extractie (de manier waarop ze de fyto-verbindingen/natuurlijke moleculen uit de cel halen), waardoor onze extracten puur en krachtig blijven en de integriteit van de plant behouden blijft.
We bewonderen veel van de bedrijfs- en productiepraktijken waarvoor onze leverancier en partner, Native Extracts, kiest; milieubewust inkopen, toeleveringsketens van de First Nations, regenwater en verantwoorde afvalvermindering om er maar een paar te noemen. MUVO is dankbaar om deel uit te maken van hun visie om merken met telers te verbinden en de groei van de Australische primaire industrie te ondersteunen, met de nadruk op STEM- en onderzoeksprojecten van de First Nation.
Haarverzorging was nog nooit zo natuurlijk! Voed je haar met de oeroude blauwdrukken van de natuur – krachtige combinaties van plantaardige voedingsstoffen voor een gezondere hoofdhuid en beter gezond en gehydrateerd haar. Hieronder vind je een gids met al onze merkwaardige en unieke ingrediënten, waaronder onze integrale inheemse Australische extracten die we voor het MUVO productassortiment gebruiken.
