Up to 99% naturally derived hair color 100% performance: Aveda hair color answers all your needs naturally – from full grey coverage to vibrant color – while leaving hair silky, touchable, and essentially damage-free (unlike synthetic chemical processing).


Cradle to Cradle Certification: Aveda sets groundbreaking standard in sustainability for beauty industry, becoming the first beauty company in the world and only the second U.S. company in any industry to receive a Cradle to Cradle (C2C) sustainability endorsement, with seven Aveda products achieving Gold Level C2C certification.


Aveda's C2C certification and endorsement are the culmination of 30 years of socially and environmentally responsible business practices. This latest milestone comes at a time when the U.S. administration and national governments around the world are issuing calls for businesses to adopt energy and operational practices to advance environmental responsibility and help stimulate economic growth, an approach Aveda has pursued since its founding in 1978.
