Plant Power! Aveda Goes Vegan

At Sanctuary Salonspa in Minnesota we’re proud to be an Aveda salon for many reasons—one of which is their commitment to eco-friendly, cruelty-free products, services and business practices. We’re thrilled to announce Aveda just made a breakthrough in that direction by going 100% vegan!

That’s right—as of January 2021, every one of Aveda’s 500+ hair, skin, body and makeup products have no animal-derived ingredients. Though all Aveda products previously were vegetarian—and many were already vegan—it took three years to reformulate them all to ensure zero animal products were used in any step in the process.

This involved coming up with alternatives to ingredients such as beeswax or honey—and making sure each substitute improved on the original. For instance, the new beeswax alternative in products like lip color is created from naturally derived plant waxes and butters, which give enhanced moisturization and replenishment.

We at Sanctuary Salonspa are happy to give more vegan self-care choices to our guests and community. Using vegan beauty products like Aveda’s helps save animals, reduces the exploitation of natural resources, and protects our planet from excess C02 emissions.

With this announcement, Aveda became the first beauty brand to partner with Veganuary in its mission to help people make more vegan choices. Whether you’d like vegan alternatives to popular foods and products, or would consider going vegan for one month, this collaboration is here to help you incorporate more vegan goodness into your life.

Besides Aveda’s amazing vegan hair color, one of the brand’s biggest vegan success stories is its newest high-performance hair-repair collection, Botanical Repair, Thisrevolutionary range transforms hair using a botanically based formula that instantly strengthens and rebuilds hair from the inside out.

When bonds that make up your hair break down, your hair becomes brittle and damaged. Without the use of synthetics or animal products, Botanical Repair’s transformative formula rebuilds those bonds and creates new ones, starting at the innermost cortex. The result is hair that’s strengthened, repaired and protected from the inside out! Now THAT is what we call plant power.
