Most of you have probably heard of cold pressed, the method of pressing produce for its juice or oil without adding any heat—hence the “cold press”—but have you heard of cold processed?
For generations, the hair care industry has been using chemicals to achieve product performance, prioritizing short-term benefits over the long-term health and wellness of your hair. But it’s not their fault, artificial ingredients need to be added because nutrients evaporate during the traditional high-heat production process.
It was Time for a Change
At Act+Acre, we want you to get as many nutrients from your products as possible. We believe that improving the formula (using premium ingredients that are good for your scalp, since we’re all about helping your hair) is not enough. We also believe that it is possible to create a product that doesn’t require any added harsh chemicals to perform. This is why we worked with scientists to create the method that started it all—The Cold Processed® Method.
Our Cold Processed Method® uses hyperbaric chambers, ice cold water, and 1200 lbs of pressure to mix all of the ingredients together. Without the added heat, it ensures the active ingredients remain fresh and highly potent, just as nature intended. We took the cold-pressed juices we all are familiar with and applied the concept to haircare. Without the heat, this process uses 90% less energy and retains up to 96% more vitamins in the active ingredients.
A Better Way to Achieve Results
Prior to our launch, our team worked with top chemists from around the world, researching and testing a variety of ingredients. The ultimate pick: Essential Oils. Simply put, essential oils are the “essence” of a plant—its unique properties in a highly concentrated form. We believe that what’s inside counts. To turn these nutrient-packed ingredients into our beloved hair products, the curated oils are mixed through our unique blending process.
The result is a rich and potent formula that easily absorbs into your scalp, feeding it nutrients that provide long-term health for your scalp and hair. This process is used on all of our products - from the scalp detox to cold pressed hair clease and conditioning hair mask.
With consistent usage, we’ve seen a significant improvement in both scalp health and overall hair wellness—leading to stronger, more resilient hair growth. This is why we take our production process seriously. The performance you want, through cold processed botanicals, and never chemicals.
