The ‘Plant of Immortality’ from the dry deserts of Mexico.

Real Aloe vera

Across the arid lands of Mexico lies the ‘Plant of Immortality’. Aloe vera, a water-dense plant nurtured by the desert, thrives on only rain and underground water. Just as nature intended.

We only use real, pure Aloe, quality-checked and certified by the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, one of the world’s leading plant experts. Our Aloe leaves are also hand-picked, with only 2 to 3 leaves per plant removed at one time. Our Aloe gel is carefully extracted to ensure a high level of polysaccharides.

Meanwhile, the Herbal Essences hydrating blend nurtures and hydrates hair. Irresistible to the touch. Windblown, airdried, or sunlit—each strand is silky smooth. Its scent is inspired by the desert home of Aloe, with warm notes of fruits and touches of leaves. Our look? Light. Translucid. Just like real Aloe vera gel.
