DAVINES & ENVIRONMENT
The old "practice makes perfect" adage is actually a brilliant business model. Case in point: Davines. When founded by the Bollati Family in Parma, Italy, Davines was a research lab that produced hair care concoctions for global cosmetics companies. Fortunately for us, after a decade of carefully refining their products, the Italian brand decided it was time to branch out on their own. Their products are made from eco-friendly ingredients with an emphasis on scientifically proven effectiveness, and packaged in reusable containers made of reusable, food-grade materials. The result is a line that our hair, our skin, and our conscience can love—a combination that's absolutely "perfetto".
One of the main projects in progress right now for Davide Bollati and Davines is the new manufacturing facility in Italy, a manifesto of sustainable beauty. Davide and his family are very keen in building “green” facilities; they want it to be a legacy to the world. This will be a natural next step to their involvement in sustainability since the current factory already only uses renewable energy ; they invest in CO2 emission recompensation ; and have more than 20 sustainable beauty ongoing projects as part of the company daily activities.
--"Quality to Davines means having the freedom to create the best products with attention and respect for our environment, using high grade, cruelty-free, natural and organic ingredients while applying scientific rigor to every product to guarantee the customers’ safety. Davines is a thoughtful balance of substance and style, nature and science, people and spirit. "
