breakthrough solutions with suppliers to
help reduce use of virgin petro-based plastic.


HOW WE DO IT:

Manufacturing Responsibly


We strive for a more beautiful future
through use of 100% wind and solar
powered manufacturing and programs
to reduce waste & water consumption
at Aveda's primary manufacturing site.  


HOW WE DO IT:

Sourcing Responsibility


Our vision is to set new beauty standards of leadership through Aveda’s commitment to supply chain integrity, traceability, and mission-aligned supplier selection.

HOW WE DO IT: 

95% of essential oil volume is certified organic or sustainably wild harvested.

Alongside our nonprofit partners on the ground, we help create jobs and income in the communities we source from, teaching their people sustainable farming techniques and helping them provide for their families — giving them a better life.

Ingredient Philosophy


It’s what’s inside that counts. That’s why we
