BEAUTY IS AS BEAUTY DOES
Empowered by its unique Mission, Aveda believes that authentic beauty is one that works in harmony with the greater web of life. It does not qualify as beauty if it hurts any of the diverse life forms that the best beauty artist of all, Nature, created. Authentic Beauty cares for the environment, which we inherited from elders and will leave to generations that follow us. Beauty cares for the society in which we live, enhancing harmony in the way we live and interact with one another as human beings.
Said simply, Beauty Is As Beauty Does.
FIRST BEAUTY COMPANY TO HAVE CRADLE TO CRADLESM CERTIFICATION OF BOTANICAL INGREDIENTS
Aveda is proud to be the first beauty company to receive Cradle to CradleSM certification for four botanical ingredients: sandalwood oil from Australia, rose oil and lavender oil from Bulgaria and uruku from Brazil. The certification follows three years of rigorous independent assessment by the Environmental Protection and Encouragement Agency (EPEA) to ensure that each ingredient meets ecological and health criteria based on the Cradle to Cradle Design Concept (C2C), which replaces the “waste model” concept with the concept of “nutritional cycles.” C2C principles require that materials must be either continually reusable or biodegradable and renewable, and must meet standards for human health in production, handling and use as well as impact on the environment.
First beauty company manufacturing with 100% certified wind power as per a review of WWD Beauty Report International Top 100 Cosmetic Manufacturers Corporate Websites in April 2007. The wind energy goes into a utility grid from which we draw power.
Aveda is Green-e Certified, which certifies that the renewable energy we purchase meets the strict environmental and consumer protection standards established by the non-profit Center for Resource Solutions.
