We believe that you should be able to achieve salon colour results at home
without compromising on the product and ingredients you use.
Our Italian made colours are free from ammonia, PPD, parabens and phthalates.
We think that matters.
Our permanent colour has been developed to give you complete grey coverage in a gentle, no-itch formula which is suitable for sensitive skin, together with exceptional multi-dimensional colour and the condition and shine results you expect after visiting the salon.
Formulated with Argan oil, Aloe Vera and Ginseng extracts, our colours will reduce damage to your hair, and support hair and scalp health.

Ammonia has a strong smell which can irritate the eyes, nose, throat or skin. It is used in commercial cleaning products and can weaken the hair, making it more susceptible to breakage and splitting. We have excluded it to give you a better colouring experience.
British researchers who examined the link between hair colouring and breast cancer in 2017, advised that it is best to reduce or avoid exposure to PPD. Our colour formulation contains no PPD at all.
Six different phthalates are banned for use in EU because of their potential effects on human health, particularly their effects on hormones.
Phthalates are mainly used as plastizers, to add flexibility to plastics, and they can have an effect on hormones, so we have eliminated them from our colour formula.
Parabens are preservatives which increase the shelf life of a product. It’s not clear that they are harmful, but they aren’t helpful and they have been associated with some unwanted effects on the immune and endocrine systems, and allergic reactions
For those that have gluten sentivities, gluten can trigger an allergic reaction. We’ve removed it from all our colour formulas.
