The idea for L’Huile de Leonor Greyl, formerly known as L’Huile de Palme, was first born during a trip to the French West Indies in the 1970s. Finding himself stranded during a hurricane, Mr. Greyl noticed that the rain seemed to run down the leaves of palm trees without ever wetting them. The plant’s incredible properties inspired him to use its oil in a haircare product that would protect hair by forming a waterproof film around each strand. Applied on the beach between swims, in salons as pre-color protection, or at home to repair hair, this oil quickly became a cult favorite. In 2013, palm oil was removed from the formula in favor of two new ingredients: coconut and Mongongo oil.
