The Benefits of Spinach for Hair and Skin

Why is Spinach good for healthy hair and skin?

We wouldn't tell you to take any old food item and to slather it all over your hair and skin for no good reason. There's a method to our madness that is quite simple: 

Spinach is good for your hair and skin inside and out. 

We admit, there is much more to our hair and skin quenching formulas than just spinach, including potent essential oils and botanical extracts with nourishing, healing and moisturizing properties (check out our full ingredient list here), but spinach gets the spotlight because it is jam packed with biotin, B-vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids that are all essential for healthy hair and skin.

Spinach is rich in the following vitamins, previtamins, minerals, nutrients and fatty acids important for the body’s production of healthy hair and skin:

VITAMINS:

  • Vitamin B — promotes the growth of keratin which strengthens hair and skin, it also enhances the elasticity of new hair and skin cells.

  • Biotin — the essential B-vitamin (also known as B7 or vitamin H) for healthy hair, skin and nails. Fueling your body with sufficient biotin helps produce the keratin making up your hair, skin and nails. Biotin promotes healthy, hydrated hair and skin, strengthening to prevent breakage, brittleness, dryness, discoloration and flakiness.

  • Vitamin A — integral for the body's production of sebum, a natural oily substance produced by the body to nourish, protect and moisturize both skin, scalp and hair.

  • Vitamin E — stimulates blood circulation to encourage the growth of new skin and hair cells, also protects hair and skin from free radicals, which contribute to the first signs of aging.

  • Vitamin C — Packed with rejuvenating properties that protect skin from time, reducing sun damage and inflammation and promoting the production of collagen for firmer younger looking skin.

PREVITAMINS:

  • Beta Carotine — a 'previtamin' that is a precursor to the body's production of Vitamin A, it provides skin with a natural glow while repairing damaged cells to restore a natural luster and shine. 

MINERALS:

  • Magnesium — combats the early signs of aging, reducing wrinkles and fine lines on skin while promoting strong hair follicles.

  • Zinc — has healing properties that protect skin, hair and scalp from sun damage and inflammation.

NUTRIENTS:

  • Antioxidants — life-affirming powers combat free radicals to reverse the signs of aging skin and hair at the source, also helps reduce scarring & sun damage.

FATTY ACIDS:

  • Omega 3 — nourishes and protects hair and skin with lustrous sheen and a natural glow while moisturizing from the inside out, also helps to reduce shedding while strengthening hair.

Long live spinach,
