A traditional Philippine medicinal plant extensively used to clean and keep hair fuller and healthier. In the olden times, the bark is soaked in water to create a soapy lather, and then used as a hair wash in lieu of regular shampoo. With frequent use, it is said to result to thick, luscious, and healthy locks.
Gugo nourishes the hair, allowing for healthier scalp, and naturally reduced hair fall. This potent plant rejuvenates hair follicles, making it a perfect ingredient for hair products and tonics. We use the bark's extract as our main active ingredient in the Gugo & Lawat product line.
Various extracts from this plant's stem, bark and leaf hold significant anti-aging, anti-oxidant, and anti-bacterial properties. Lawat leaf extracts contain essential fatty acids and amino acid nutrients that aid in revilatizing scalp and hair follicles.

While a very common preservative used in personal care products, more recent research indicates the possibility of parabens acting as a “xenostrogen agent”. This means that they can imitate estrogen in the body and run the risk of causing hormonal imbalances. While studies on parabens are not conclusive, our formulations include safer alternatives nonetheless.
When formulated with silicone, conditioners often over-coat the hair, resulting to a heavy build up that weighs down overall hair texture. In its stead, our formulation uses natural plant oils and butters to deliver soft, smooth, and well-conditioned hair. Silicone-free products are a top-of-mind choice for people with curly hair.
Our products do not have sulfates as part of their formulations. Sulfates are highly efficient cleaners, to the point that they can sometimes over cleanse the hair. They can strip off the natural oils and leave the scalp feeling dry, itchy, and irritated.
