Learn More About Ojon
The Ojon hair care collection contains pure oil derived from trees in Central America. The nourishing, hydrating oil is incredibly rare; 8,000 nuts are necessary to produce just 3 cups of it. Because of the presence of the oil in their formulas, Ojon products are uniquely able to reverse damage caused by free radicals and other environmental stressors, restoring hair's health.
The key, transforming ingredient in Ojon hair treatments is a natural botanical oil that has been known to the native Miskito people of Central America for centuries. Derived from a native nut-bearing tree, the extracted oil provides lipids that closely match the natural oils found in human hair. When carefully formulated into the hair products offered by Ojon, it helps to strengthen, repair and renew hair damaged by over-styling and excessive coloring, stressed by pollution and diet, or simply a victim of the aging process.
Adhering to the highest standards of free trade, Ojon works closely with MOPAWI, a non-profit group dedicated to sustainable development with the native Miskito and Garifuna peoples of the Rio Platano Biosphere Reserve in northeastern Honduras, to acquire the oil from thousands of local producers. The nuts are gathered from wild trees - not plantations - as a renewable resource and processed in the traditional manner by local workers. This special oil (it takes the entire nut production of one tree to produce just 3 cups of oil) is formulated with up to 30 other naturally derived ingredients to make the different Ojon hair care products, each of which is subjected to rigorous clinical, consumer and safety testing. The formulators are dedicated to pure, natural products, free of parabens, phthalates, propylene glycol, mineral oil, PABA, petrolatum, paraffin, DEA and animal ingredients (except for cruelty-free honey and beeswax). The result is a line of effective treatments, ready to provide healthy, lustrous hair, full of body, bounce and volume.
