Triolein

EGW Score: 1 Moisturizer, Conditioning Agent Plant-derived

What is Triolein and what are its hair care benefits?

Triolein helps keep the scalp hydrated and reduce trans-epidermal water loss.

Triolein provides excellent shine and luster improvement (51% compared to untreated hair).

Triolein significantly reduces hair breakage; improves smoothness by providing an even coating on the hair surface; provides excellent frizz control with 62% hair volume reduction after 8 hours of high humidity exposure compared to untreated hair.

Triolein provides better split end repair compared to argan oil; higher moisture levels; seals hair shaft to protect it and to prevent humidity from penetrating into the outer cuticle layer; protects from environmental stressors.

Triolein is based on micro algae originally sourced from the sap of a chestnut tree in Germany and manufactured via biotechnology into a high stability high oleic algae oil with proven efficacy and a great sustainability profile. It contains very high levels of saturated and monounsaturated fatty acids including oleic acid (much higher than argan oil, avocado oil, coconut oil).

This matters because saturated and unsaturated fatty acids make up 85% of the total hair lipid content and are found in the cuticle and cortical cell membrane complex playing a crucial role in keeping hair healthy, ensuring shine, manageability and strength. Oleic acid is a principle component of the natural free fatty acid content of hair and linked to gloss and shine, reduction of TEWL and increased hydration in the scalp.
