Vinegar is a highly beneficial multifunctional ingredient that has been used for cosmetic purposes for centuries thanks to its pH balance and natural cleansing properties.

Lipoid Kosmetik, a Swiss manufacturer of plant extracts and natural phospholipids for the cosmetics industry, has developed a selection of COSMOS-approved VNGR + extracts to reduce hair damage and brighten hair.

The ingredients comprise vegetable material extracted with vinegar and glycerin to create powerful, nearly alcohol-free tinctures.

Cider VNGR+ is an extract from mallow flowers and nettle herbs with Swiss organic apple cider vinegar and glycerin, while Rice VNGR+ is an extract of chrysanthemum flowers and polygonum roots with rice vinegar and glycerin.
