In 2017, we shouldn't really be worrying about pouring toxic content into our hair anymore! Here’s how to make sure your hair products are safe and healthy.

Sustainability really is a 360 thing, and it means knowing that the things you buy—food, clothes or cosmetics—come from a good place and they’ll neither harm you nor the environment. To be absolutely sure that your products live up to this standard there are certain indicators of quality, and sustainability to look for. When it comes to hair care, one option is the Grön Salong Comprehensive Environmental Certification.

Grön Salong is a Scandinavian nonprofit organization with no political or financial interests. Their goal is to enable a better working environment for hair stylists by evaluating professional hair care based on independent public research. By doing so, they can divide products into three categories: The positive list (no toxic ingredients), the problem list (at least one problematic ingredient) and the ban list (at least one toxic ingredient).The Biolage R.A.W. series, with all its natural-origin ingredients and no-nonsense ingredients, falls into the first category—the positive list!

Being certified by Grön Salong is a valuable sign of approval and a guarantee that the products contain no toxic or environmentally harmful ingredients whatsoever. This means that regardless of whether or not you use the products at home, or visit one of the Biolage R.A.W. salons, you can be completely confident that your hair will be treated with 100% goodness.
