Active is a mentholated composition. It has Chinese wintergreen, menthol, camphor, eucalyptus. It is meant to be used on sore muscles. It is a topical treatment. It is an oil. I prefer to use this on my knees when they get sore (I have tendinitis), on my abdomen (one week out of the month), and on my chest when I get sick. Occasionally, I put some on in my bathtub when I get sick. This is one of my favorite Aveda products.

My hair's true love.
I began using this conditioner over a year ago. It's filled with protein, and worked to reconstruct my overly-highlighted, past-shoulder-blade hair. I noticed that some revierws were concerned with moisture. This is a good PROTEIN RICH conditioner, and protein is soemething that can dry your hair out if you don't need it in your hair. I would suggest going to an Aveda location and performing a consultation with an Aveda Advisor. If you're going for moisture, the Aveda "Dry Remedy" line focuses on moisture. The product consistency is thick and rich. Aveda also is a very environmental company. This conditioner's packaging is made out of partly-recycled material and the company recucles their own product pacaking, so once you are done with the product, they take the empty bottles back. They also support organic farming. The bulgarian lavendar in this product benefits a small distillery in Bulgaria that employs almost an entire town...and it's all organically farmed. Aveda doesn't use synthetic aromas, so this product naturally smells like ylang ylang and bergamont. All of the aroms are functional too, so they're not added in for fluff. I can't say enough about this company and this product. It's absolutely fabulous...if your hair needs this much protein. Like I said, though, you should consult your local Aveda's advisors.
