For more than thirty years, Aveda has been creating professional, plant-based hair care for salon professionals and style savvy consumers.

Aveda uses all-natural and organic ingredients, green production sources and sustainable packaging, making Aveda products are great for your hair AND the environment. You can spot Aveda everywhere from red carpets to catwalks, including the runways of Thakoon, 3.1 Phillip Lim, and Project Runway winner Christian Siriano.

The Aveda Corporation is committed to the elimination of animal testing. We are equally committed to consumer health and safety, and bringing to market products that comply with applicable regulations in every country in which products are sold.

Aveda does not conduct animal testing on our products or ingredients, nor ask others to test on our behalf, except when required by law. Aveda evaluate our finished products in clinical tests on volunteer panels.

The Aveda Corporation fully supports the development and global acceptance of non-animal testing alternatives. To this end, Aveda works extensively with the industry at large and the global scientific community to research and fund these alternatives.

Do Aveda products contain sulfates?

Aveda does not use SLS or SLES in our shampoo. However, Aveda does use ammonium lauryl sulfate, coco-babassu sulfate and many other surfactants derived from babassu, palm and coconut. These are all foaming ingredients used for cleansing and so have similar functions and names. The difference is the starting materials used to make these foaming ingredients. Aveda always uses plant (coconut, babassu or palm) for these foaming ingredients where other companies will use petroleum or animal by-products. When the foaming ingredient appears on the label of a product, there is no way to know which starting materials were used although the foaming ingredient name will be the same.

Using Aveda's exclusive Babassu Betaine technology, Aveda has offered sulfate-free shampoos since 1996 and currently offers 4 shampoos formulated without sulfates: Scalp Beneifts Balancing Shampoo, Damage Remedy Restructuring Shampoo, Dry Remedy Moisturizing Shampoo and Mens Pureformance Shampoo.

Aveda also currently offers 9 sulfate-free skin cleansing products. Caribbean Therapy Body Wash, Green Science Perfecting Cleanser, Enbrightenment Cleanser, Outer Peace Foaming Cleanser, Personal Blends Smoothing Body Formula, Pure Comfort Eye Makeup Remover, Botanical Kinetics Purifying Crème Cleanser, Botanical Kinetics Purifying Gel Cleanser and Smoothing Body Polish.
