Beauty For You And The Planet - BEAUTY + SUSTAINABILITY IN EVERYTHING WE DO!
Since our founding in 1983, Davines has seen a lot of changes: what began as a small family research lab has grown into an international corporation certified by B Corp.But through it all, they've remained a family-owned business dedicated to creating beautiful hair care products that keep environmental impact and sustainability in mind.
If you're new to Davines (or just need a little refresher), here's a quick run through on how they embody their tagline "beauty + sustainability" in everything we do:

LOMA is a collection of organically infused, aromatic products for daily comfort. Naturally healing, organic ingredients partnered with environmentally-conscious manufacturing give you exceptional performance. David, the founder of LOMA Hair Care, created a collection of aromatic, organically infused products with his family in mind. Wanting his daughter Franky, her friends and their families to have a bath and body collection that is free from the world of products filled with parabens, dioxanes, phthalates, hormones, pesticides and more.
They promise quality and longevity, and their passion is in the process - they research and test each raw material to ensure they're as clean as they claim to be. Their products are paraben, sodium chloride, gluten, soy and phthalate free, and have sulfate-free cleansing. They are also vegan friendly. And, of course, they NEVER test on animals!
PACKAGING THAT CARES: AG creates sustainable packaging made from responsible and recycled materials with refillable options. Real beauty believes in better — They’re constantly researching even more sustainable solutions for a brighter future.
WASTE LESS. SAVE MORE. IT’S EASY.
AG shampoos and conditioners are offered in 1L pouches to refill regular-sized bottles. This diverts more plastic bottles from landfills and provides up to 45% savings Refill pouches by the numbers:
- 73% less plastic than our previous plastic bottles
- 62% less energy to produce
RECYCLED PLASTIC PACKAGING
AG uses post-consumer regrind (PCR) across the entire classic collection of shampoo and conditioner bottles.
What is PCR?
Post consumer regrind (PCR) is made from recycled materials. It is a more sustainable packaging option as it reduces the production of plastics from non-renewable petroleum products.
All plastic bottles are made from at least 30% PCR. Their goal is to have all plastic packaging made from 100% PCR as more regrind plastic becomes available.
All classic collection shampoos and conditioners are available in refill pouches so you can refill to reuse again and again.
AG has introduced rust-free, shower-safe, aluminum packaging for select products in our Plant-Based Essentials collection. Unlike many plastics, aluminum can be recycled over and over.
All Plant Based Essential shampoos and conditioners are available in refill pouches so you can refill to reuse again and again.
