The history of snake oil

Snake oil, also known as Cobra oil, is actually a blend of several vegetable oils renowned for their hair care benefits. Its strange and misleading name, as it contains no substances of animal origin, comes from Greek mythology, in reference to the sublime hair of the beautiful Medusa before she was transformed into a gorgon.

Protective, fortifying, moisturizing, anti-hair loss and anti-dandruff, it prevents split ends, fights dandruff and hair loss, leaving hair supple, soft and shiny. All its benefits come from its exceptional composition.
