To celebrate April, the Month of Earth, we decided to tell you a story of positive impact and protection of biodiversity. It is the story of Essential Haircare, Davines product line that takes care of your hair and of the Earth at the same time. 

Every Essential Haircare product contains an active ingredient from an Italian Slow Food Presidium.

Families of Italian farmers carry out with passion these small traditional cultivations - such as the Fiaschetto Tomato from Brindisi or the Caper from Salina - and they are in the front line to protect biodiversity. We have decided to thank these brave farmers by telling you about their daily commitment.
