Aveda’s Story

Aveda’s foundation is based on a few main principles that make the brand reputable and reliable. Here we will deep dive into the principles and how they benefit your hair. 

Aveda Performance – Green Chemistry and Vegan 

Aveda is Leaping Bunny approved – but what does that entail? Their website says, “ In 2020, we made the critical decision to become 100% vegan, thereby removing all animal products and by-products from our formulas. Now and forever, all of our formulas are free of ingredients like beeswax and honey, relying instead on high-performing alternatives.” The Leaping Bunny Foundation promises “the most coveted and rigorous cruelty-free beauty certification available. It is attained through Cruelty-Free International, the leading organization to end animal experimentation on a global scale.” With this promise, you can guarantee the quality of the products and that they are now and forever cruelty-free. 

Aveda Environmental Leadership and Responsibility

Aveda is committed to environmental leadership and responsibility by creating their products with suppliers that are “eld to social, ethical and environmental metrics” according to their website, and these suppliers are sourced by Aveda promising they come from “meaningful, on-the-ground programs that protect and enhance their environmental and social ecosystems”. 

They also boast minimal packaging with maximal recycling possibilities, offering. 

  • Reduction of “ the size, weight, and production processes of packaging whenever possible
  •  […] Packaging that can be widely recycled whenever possible
  • Use as much recycled content/PCR as commercially possible without affecting the efficacy of the product
  •  Challenge suppliers to innovate their packaging using a sustainability lens”

Aveda Mission of Care for the World 

The main way that Aveda cares for the world with its products is by providing and donating to clean water foundations and choosing their supplies and partnerships carefully to maximize philanthropy. Their philosophy on clean water and their partnerships tells that they have been committed since 1999, raising over 71M for “partner groups, providing

clean water for over 1.5 million people in need, and protecting thousands of watersheds in communities around the world.[…] Every cent raised and donated to charity: water during our campaign goes directly to clean water projects. Clean water changes everything: The lives of individuals, their communities, and, in turn, the world”. By using Aveda products, you can ensure the quality is shown in their products and their contribution to the world.
