DAVINES PRODUCTS

About Davines

Founded in Parma, Italy in 1983 by the Bollati Family, Davines Group started as a research laboratory, producing high-end hair care products for renowned cosmetic companies worldwide. After a decade of honing our expertise, we began creating our own brand of Davines hair care products exclusively for salons, and in 1996 founded [ comfort zone ] skin care for premier spas.

"BY CREATING BEAUTY SUSTAINABLY, WE ENCOURAGE PEOPLE TO TAKE CARE OF THEMSELVES, OF THE ENVIRONMENT IN WHICH THEY LIVE & WORK, OF THE THINGS THEY LOVE."

Since the beginning, we've focused on crafting quality products that are scientifically engineered to work, and express our distinctive style and spirit.

Our style is a reflection of our curiosity and openness to the world – different cultures, customs, and people that truly inspire us – and our Italian perspective of history and art, design and fashion, culture and lifestyle because it is our heritage and who we are. We love things that reflect simplicity and harmony because their beauty is always modern. And although we're in tune with today's mood, we set out to create concepts and products that are destined to become classics with their timeless appeal.

Quality to us means having the freedom to create the best products with attention and respect for our environment, using high grade, natural ingredients, and applying scientific rigor to every product to guarantee our customers' safety. Quality is also intended by all of us, by our partners and consumers as quality of life.

At Davines, we dare to do what we believe in and, rather than conforming to the mainstream, allow intuition to pave our path. This gives us the freedom to develop concepts and products that are original, authentic, and emotionally connected with people. Our work is a thoughtful balance of substance and style, nature and science, people and spirit. It is what enables us to create what we call life-enhancing projects.

More than two decades later, the Davines community spans over 75 countries, thousands of salons and hundreds upon hundreds of passionate hairdressers. Although we continue to grow, with headquarters in Parma, New York City, Paris, London and Mexico City, our roots are firmly planted in our beginnings as a family-owned research laboratory guided by the same desire for quality products with an authentic approach and timeless appeal.

OUR MISSION

Our aim is to inspire and improve the work life quality of worldwide beauty professionals through concepts, products and services that will allow them to offer unique experiences to their clients.

ZERO IMPACT

Compensating the full CO2 impact of the production of our Essential Haircare, SU and More Inside lines

Several years ago, with the collaboration of LifeGate, Davines adopted a Zero ImpactR policy (carbon-neutral) for the pack of our Essential Haircare product line, which was later joined by the family of SU sun-care products, OI and by the styling line more inside.

By adhering to LifeGate's Zero ImpactR Project the carbon dioxide emissions generated by the production of the packaging for these lines are offset by the purchasing of carbon credits generated by operations of forests' creation and protection in Italy, Costa Rica and Madagascar, as established by the Kyoto Protocol.

Accordingly, Davines helps developing the vegetation required to restore oxygen that is extracted from the environment.

Davines, was one of the first Italian cosmetique brands to have joined the Zero Impact projects.

JUSTICE AND SOUL founded by Matthew Fairfax & Lauren Ebright

is a Davines hair salon & school (supported by Davines) in Phnom Penh, Cambodia where women are trained to work in the salon and earn a livable wage, thereby breaking the trafficking cycle.

"Sexual exploitation happens daily around the world. Men and women (as young as 8yrs old) are being sold for sex. The JUSTICE AND SOUL FOUNDATION is grateful to be apart of the restoration process through: HOPE, VOCATIONAL SKILLS & REINTEGRATION."
