With delicate, abundant petals that range in color from palest white to vibrant red, the peony has long served as the traditional flower of China. This spring perennial, known as the “king of the flowers,” has come to symbolize wealth, honor and royalty – and it is known for its healing powers, too.
Since ancient times, the peony has been used for medicinal purposes, both in the East and in the West. In fact, its Western name comes from the Greek myth of Paeon, physician to the gods, whose life was spared when Zeus transformed him into the beautiful flower that now bears his name.
While the peony blossom delights the senses, the healing power is contained in the roots. To restore balance to the scalp, the Klorane Peony Collection harnesses the healing properties of Paeoniflorin, a natural molecule found in the roots that soothes sensitive skin and irritation.
Soothe the scalp with this simple routine:
1. Cleanse your hair and scalp with Klorane Shampoo with Peony, a pH-balanced, gentle formula that soothes away dryness, itchiness and irritation and can help treat dandruff, too.
2. Apply Klorane Gel Conditioner with Peony directly to the scalp for 24-hour comfort and hydration, then work into your hair lengths for soft, shiny, manageable tresses.
3. Give your irritated scalp instant relief with SOS Serum with Peony, a soothing spray made with menthol that provides an immediate cooling effect while maintaining optimal scalp balance.
