SOLU DAVINES For all hair types.
With Valtellina Buckwheat extract, Slow Food Presidium.
Rich in mineral salts, in particular iron, zinc, selenium and proteins. Contains a high concentration of all essential amino acids especially lysine, threonine, tryptophan and the amino acids containing sulfur. It is also rich in antioxidants.
Rustic plant, resistant to cold and drought, it is useful for exploiting the land in the summer, after the rye, potato and barley crops. Hardly attacked by parasites, it can be easily grown without using chemicals. Its cultivation reached its maximum expansion in the first half of the nineteenth century, then the decline began to make room for more profitable cultures. Today it is grown in small plots on slopes or terraces, and is returning to be very appreciated for its high nutritional qualities and for the absence of gluten.

With Trapani Sea Salt, Slow Food Presidium.
Rich in potassium, magnesium and low in sodium chloride. It allows to cleanse with a scrub effect and gives texture to the hair.
Sea water, wind and sun are the essential elements for the birth of salt. There is a place in Sicily, along the Trapani coast, where these conditions are by nature optimal and have given rise, since the time of the Phoenicians, to a qualitatively unique production reality. In large tanks, called saline, the sea water evaporates in the sun, in view of a ritual that has been repeated unchanged for over a thousand years: the hand-made salt collection. The extracted sea salt is integral, moist and with a grayish appearance and is accumulated in pyramids which, in a siggestive scenario of water and windmills, turn pink when the sun goes down.
Produced by: salina del sig. Carmelo Culcasi of Paceco, Trapani.
