Here at Verb, we make only good stuff and that means formulas with all of the good ingredients minus the bad (no parabens, harmful sulfates or gluten). We know it’s important to include powerhouse ingredients like quinoa, green tea, argan and moringa oil that you might recognize from your #shelfies. Then, there are some lesser-known ingredients that pack a punch, like the amazing benefits of sunflower seed extract. We’ve tackled the task of explaining the benefits of sunflower seed extract before so now it’s time to get acquainted with the products that include this ingredient and why we've added it to so many of our formulas (including every Curl Collection product, launching in October).
Need a recap on why we love this ingredient? Sunflower seed extract is rich in nutrients, packed with vitamin E and antioxidants which all help keep your hair (and the rest of your body) strong and healthy. This key ingredient helps control frizz and conditions each strand thanks to its amazing hydrating benefits. Plus, sunflower seed extract is great for protecting against UV rays which can dry out or even fade color treated hair. Are you as sold as we are on adding sunflower seed extract to your hair care routine? Keep reading to see which sunflower seed extract infused essentials you should be adding to your shopping cart.
1. Curl Cream
Curl Cream is a curl defining cream that provides memory and light hold to all types of textured hair. The lightweight formula activates curls, keeps them shapely and bouncy while controlling frizz for all-day softness.
Why sunflower seed extract is important: Curls need hydration, that part we all know but sometimes we forget that when we heat style or even step outside, we’re exposing the curls to UV damage which can dry out fragile curls. To keep your curls bouncy and hydrated all day long, Curl Cream has your (back) hair but not your back hair (ew)!
Who it’s for: All curl types looking to weightlessly define and hydrate their curls.

Who it’s for: All hair types (yes, we mean fine, thick, wavy, straight, coily, curly and kinky) looking to refresh their hair with a little dry conditioning.
