Metal Detox: your secret weapon

Glicoamine is the key ingredient in Metal Detox from L’Oréal Professionnel Paris. It’s a molecule capable of targeting and neutralising excess copper found inside the hair

It may not look like there’s anything special in this petri dish, but this innocuous liquid is full of Glicoamine, the key ingredient to the Metal Detox range from L’Oréal Professionnel Paris.

What is it about Glicoamine that makes this special molecule such a game-changer? Glicoamine is a chelating agent, like many other detoxifying ingredients but the biggest difference is that it is small enough to actually penetrate the hair fibre and target excess copper within.

Once inside, it finds and attaches itself to metals, effectively neutralising them.

It’s very clever stuff and offers a huge breakthrough for both colourists and stylists. Without having to worry about hidden metals in hair challenging its structural integrity, you can go ahead and do what you do best: create incredible professional results to wow your clients, without them fearing damage from colour.



“Thanks to our collaboration with Ioannina University, we identified a perfect molecule: Glicoamine. It is the only active agent small enough to trap and neutralise metal inside the fibre. Fibre integrity is preserved, colour is mastered, and the oxidant gets to fully do its job” – Charlotte Feltin, L’Oréal Haircare Laboratories
