We all depend on our planet’s environment that is a universal truth that applies to every living being no matter where you live and no matter what nationality you are.
Over the years we have become aware that overpopulation and industrialization have created harmful changes on all these elements we depend on. We, as industrialized cultures have just recently become aware of this imbalance and the negative effects it has on the environment based on the dramatic changes we see in our world’s climate and in nature.
Looking at cultures who live in harmony with the environment, cultures that understand how to live on this planet, live off the land yet help maintain a balance between what they take and what they give back.They’ve learned to live in harmony with and how to maintain a balance in the environment. That is a belief and a knowledge that is common among many native cultures around the world that for hundreds of years have lived off the land.
As an individual I’ve always cared about the environment but it wasn’t until I created my line of products that I became aware of just how much harm the production processes of any product had on the environment.
We make every effort to do our part to help the environment by utilising packaging that is recyclable or biodegradable. We use natural ingredients from sources that are sustainable and renewable and are harvested utilising methods that do not cause any harm to the environment.
KEVIN.MURPHY washes use only sulphate free surfactants that effectively cleanse and remove surface oil and dirt, without stripping or depleting the hair of its colour. AHA’s or fruit acids derived from Papaya, Citrus, and Sugar Cane gently exfoliate the hair surface without drying or depleting the hair. Natural surfactants from the Soap Bark Tree Quillaja and other plant-derived sources create a rich luxurious lather that moisturise and nourish the hair. Naturally sulphate and paraben free.
Partnering with Green Circle Salons, an organisation that provides sustainable waste management, KEVIN.MURPHY aims to teach and share methods for salons and spas across North America to become more sustainable, healthy and profitable. Green Circle is comprised of a collection of salons that send everyday by-products like hair clippings, aluminum foils, color tubes and applicators for innovative reuse and environment-friendly recycling. Through the partnership, KEVIN.MURPHY will exhibit how commitment combined with minimal effort can have a huge effect on the industry as a whole.
