LET'S TALK SPECIFICS

What is formaldehyde?

Wait, there’s formaldehyde in most keratin treatments? Sure is. So, what exactly is formaldehyde and why is it so bad?

Scientifically speaking, formaldehyde is a chemical compound of hydrogen, oxygen and carbon. Health-wise, it’s a dangerous chemical that can sometimes be listed on a product label as other names such as: formalin, formic aldehyde, methanediol, methanal, methyl aldehyde, methylene glycol or methylene oxide. Formaldehyde is a colorless, strong-smelling chemical that can cause skin and eye irritation and can be absorbed through the skin. Long-term exposure to formaldehyde can have severely damaging effects on your health. Even limited exposure can lead to watery eyes, burning sensations, coughing, wheezing and skin irritation—not to mention the harm it does to the environment, too. In the case of many other keratin treatments, formaldehyde releases toxic chemicals into the air when heat is applied, making it not only bad for you, but those around you, the air and the planet, too.

Thankfully, some big retailers like Whole Foods, Target and CVS have started to ban products that contain formaldehyde and the state of California will be banning it along with 24 other toxic chemicals. We’re hoping more and more retailers and states follow in these footsteps, but in the meantime, rest assured it’s our top priority to make our products just as safe as they are effective.

What is Sericin?

Sericin is a natural protein produced by the silkworm, Bombyx Mori. In silk, sericin acts as cement between filaments of fibroin. Sericin possesses a high affinity for the keratin in the hair. The protein acts as cement between reticulated proteins, sealing in moisture, adding luster, protecting bonds and locking hair into a smoother, straighter form. There is no other smoothing product in the world that uses sericin in the way it's used in Cezanne.

What is Glycolic Acid

Glycolic acid is a popular anti-aging ingredient that has been recognized for many years. Safe for the stylist and client, glycolic acid fully penetrates the hair shaft, enhancing softness, improving manageability, preventing breakage and protecting from heat.

What is Keratin?

The words "keratin smoothing treatment" are often tossed about when referring to traditional smoothing treatments. However, the word "keratin" is somewhat of a misnomer, as keratin is not the actual ingredient that smooths the hair. Keratin is certainly one of the ingredients we use, but it's only one of the three parts we need to smooth your hair completely. Keratin is the strong protein in skin, hair, and nails that heals and protects. Think of it as sealing the treatment in to complete the process.

"It's so good! My ends haven't touched the straightener since I got my hair done. When my hair dries, it dries with just a slight wave - which is so different to how it used to be. I can virtually leave it as it is and go out. So very low maintenance hair now!"

"I taught three hot yoga classes back-to-back...after the three classes my hair was still straight and shiny and looked great!"

"The results were stunning for me. I didn’t have any frizz, despite the day being in the 80s with humidity. My kinky curls on the underside of my head were relaxed to beach waves, while the top of my hair had loose curves."
