Inside Aveda


The Aveda brand has been around since 1978, founded by Horst Rechelbacher who was inspired to launch the company after a trip to India where he was introduced to the science of Ayurveda. He adopted holistic thinking, long before its popularity today, and held the belief that individual beauty is linked to the beauty of the world around us.

The mission at Aveda is to care for the world we live in, from the products we make to the ways in which we give back to society. At Aveda, we strive to set an example for environmental leadership and responsibility, not just in the world of beauty, but around the world.

Aveda is now a global leader in the beauty and wellness industry, with salons, spas and institutions in more than 40 countries.

Plant infused. Sustainability at heart.

Responsible Packaging.

Aveda was the first beauty company to use 100% post-consumer recycled materials in packaging. More than 85% of our skin care and hair styling PET bottles and jars contain recycled materials.

Responsible Manufacturing.

Aveda was the first beauty company to manufacture all products with 100% wind power through renewable energy credits and carbon offsets. In addition, more than 83% of Aveda’s waste is re-used or recycled in our primary manufacturing facility.

Responsible Sourcing

95% of essential oil volume is certified organic or sustainably wild harvested. Alongside our nonprofit partners on the ground, we help create jobs and income in the communities we source from, teaching their people sustainable farming techniques and helping them provide for their families


We never, ever test on animals. We like to say we’re “people-tested.”

Clean Beauty

Our formulas are 90% naturally derived from plants, non-petroleum minerals or water. All of our products are vegan.
