Oil Ultime has added two new products to their luxurious haircare range of innovative, high-performing formulas powered by oils.

Discover the new silicone-free Oil Ultime Castor Seed Cleansing Oil inspired by the use of gentle cleansing oils in Asian skincare. This non-greasy oil rebalances, cares and gently cleanses the scalp and hair without weighing it down. Formulated with 100% natural Castor Seed Oil, the Cleansing Oil offers a mindful and relaxing experience.

Created for all hair types, the new Oil Ultime Mediterranean Finishing Oil is rich in natural oils infused with pure white jasmine flower blossoms and refreshing citrus notes of lime and orange. Non-greasy and silicone-free, this indulgent oil protects hair from damaging factors faced in warmer weather and leaves it feeling lightweight, radiant and smooth. 

Oil Ultime uses the most precious ingredients in its ranges, from high-performing natural, purified oils to invigorating, aromatic essential oils. These ingredients are known for their ability to enhance hair with lightweight care and added shine, while helping salon clients escape their hectic daily routine and find inner balance. 

Experience pure indulgence with the new Castor Seed Cleansing Oil and Mediterranean Finishing Oil from Oil Ultime and reveal your #truebeauty inside and out.
