What is it?
Xylitol is a natural sugar alcohol found in plants, including many fruits and vegetables. It has a sweet taste and is often used as a sugar substitute.
When used in hair care products Xylitol is known to moisturise and revitalise the hair. It has antimicrobial properties that help fight dandruff and flakes to keep the scalp clean.
Xylitol is also said to boost levels of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is naturally present in the layers of your skin and contributes to its softness. It does this by pulling water from the environment onto your skin to keep it hydrated.
