Founded in Parma, Italy in 1983 by the Bollati Family, Davines Group started as a research laboratory, producing high-end hair care products for renowned cosmetic companies worldwide. After a decade of honing our expertise, we began creating our own brand of Davines hair care products exclusively for salons, and in 1996 founded [ comfort zone ] skin care for premier spas.
“BY CREATING BEAUTY SUSTAINABLY, WE ENCOURAGE PEOPLE TO TAKE CARE OF THEMSELVES, OF THE ENVIRONMENT IN WHICH THEY LIVE & WORK, OF THE THINGS THEY LOVE.”
Since the beginning, we’ve focused on crafting quality products that are scientifically engineered to work, and express our distinctive style and spirit.
Beauty + Sustainability, this is an inspiring concept for all of our projects, from product formulation and design, to company ethics and salon education.
AT DAVINES, WE BELIEVE THAT LIVING A BALANCE OF BEAUTY AND SUSTAINABILITY, WHAT WE CALL “SUSTAINABLE BEAUTY”, CAN IMPROVE OUR LIVES AND THE WORLD AROUND US
Our ideal of beauty finds its inspiration in the concept of equilibrium between substance and shape. Our style is inspired by simplicity, harmony and good taste.
The beauty that we believe in is based on appreciation for individuality and celebration of diversity. So we praise the grace, elegance and distinct characteristics that make each of us who we are. This is why we consider ourselves as a tool for our customers to express their own uniqueness.
By creating “beauty” we want to encourage people to take care of themselves, of the environment in which they live and work, and of the things they love.
Our multicultural curiosity motivates us to explore the many truths of our world. We like to be in tune with the present while still remaining fresh over time.
Our ideal of beauty works through practical and "sustainable" efforts. For us, sustainability deals with the responsibility we owe to ourselves, the people with which we work, our customers, and the world in which we live and operate. Our vision of “sustainability” has a range of connected meanings:
- “sustainability” in regard to our commitment to minimizing the impact on the environment, not compromising the quality or quantity of natural resources today or tomorrow;
- “sustainability” in regard to the effectiveness of our products and the safety of our customers, thanks to the privileged use of natural ingredients, enhanced with cutting-edge cosmetic technologies and an artisanal spirit;
- “sustainability” in regard to “freedom of creation”. Our decisions are led more by "intuition” than “calculation”. Our pioneering spirit guides us to explore ideas beyond trends. At Davines, every idea is born free and then developed with authenticity, in harmony with our values.
- “sustainability” in regard to “ethics”, which in ancient Greek means “house, shelter, lair”. Honored of being a family company, we make our professional environment a homely place where to develop oneself and create sincere and trustful relationships with others, based on transparency and collaboration.
In summarizing, “beautiful and good” – as the ancients referred to the inseparable unity between exterior and interior beauty – is another way to say “Sustainable Beauty" and "Sustainable Beauty" is another way to say Davines.
