Aveda’s green ingredient promise focuses on continually striving to increase their use of naturally derived ingredients, i.e. those in which more than 50% of the molecule comes from a plant, non-petroleum mineral, or other natural source, like water. We set other standards for use, too, like avoiding certain types of processing.
Aveda’s standards have made them a pioneer in the green cosmetics world: now more than 90% of our essential oils and 89% of our raw herbal ingredients* are certified organic. * By tonnage.
Zanté Salon & Spa features the full line of Aveda™ products. Our products are:
Sourced from organic, sustainable or renewable plant-based origins
Represent ecological and cultural diversity by being sourced from different habitats all over the world
Do not negatively impact the ecosystems from which they are sourced
Involve environmentally responsible processing (for- example, steam distillation rather than chemical extraction of essential oils)
To facilitate the choice of ingredients that meet these standards, Zanté Salon & Spa and Aveda™ are teaming up with the EPEA, an environmental research institute located in Germany and led by Michael Braungart, co-author of “Cradle to Cradle” design principles for products. Aveda™ is constantly evolving our ingredient sourcing process to meet our goals, helping to continually move our business toward our vision.
