Davines was born as a research and development laboratory, always following a formulation philosophy inspired by innovation criteria, aimed at ensuring the maximum of both sustainability and performance.
For this reason we prefer ingredients obtained from renewable and eco-sustainable sources, whose origins are traceable; of natural origin, biological or eco-certified, biodegradable and those that allow us to respect and encourage biodiversity.
We pay the utmost attention to the origin of the ingredients, to their quality and purity. Rigorous tests, both internal and independent, conducted in collaboration with international Universities and research centers, guarantee their effectiveness.
Davines chose follow a qualitative methodology for formulation development that takes the name of Sustainable Life Cycle Assessment (SLCA).This analysis allows us to evaluate all environmental and social impacts, guiding the decision-making processes towards the creation of products that are as sustainable as possibile during their entire life cycle.
Gentle and sustainable, the new surfactant developed by Davines is made from olive oil. A product of the Mediterranean tradition through which we also protect biodiversity.
Davines only defines as "natural" those ingredients whose molecular structure is 100% of natural origin. Not all brands are so restrictive. Let’s find out what the naturalness criteria normally used are and why Davines has decided to create its own.
