Elava Botanik Review

I consider myself pretty savvy regarding natural skin and hair care products but I was really excited to learn about Elava Botanik which has created “the only body care in the world made entirely with 100% natural organic fruit.” I was intrigued to learn more about this unique hair care line that actually has a “Fresh Until” date but does not require refrigeration.

Elava Botanik shampoos and conditioners do not use synthetic fragrances which I appreciate because I have been discouraged in the past by other lines that claim to be natural but include artificial “fragrances” which defeats the purpose of purchasing an organic or natural body product. I tried the Papaya Shampoo and Condition and the only scent that you smell when you open the bottle is the wonderful freshness of the papaya pulp.

Elava Botanik is committed to creating the highest quality products without using parabens, sulfates, glutens or other potentially harmful additives.

What I appreciate most about the Papaya Shampoo and Conditioner from Elava Botanik is that it really provides effective yet very gentle cleansing and moisturizing. I have been swimming and working out daily and having long, light blond hair requires a lot of TLC. I like these two products so much that I have actually chosen it for my post workout hair care products. Once thing that really caught my attention is that this antioxidant rich conditioner notes the benefits include “inhibits UVA oxidation of color” which I desperately need when swimming in a chlorinated pool in the Florida sun which is intense. After using these products my hair is very soft and does not show any signs of recent damage or frizz which says a lot about these products.

The Elava Botanik Papaya Shampoo and Conditioner are like a tropical “drink” of moisture for my hair. In addition to this duo there is also Avocado (I would LOVE to try this line) and Mango which is available by visiting the Elava Botanik website.
