Davines was founded in Italy in 1983 by the Bollati family. Initially they produced high-end cosmetics for third party companies from their research lab. After more than a decade of research, they decided to launch their own hair care products for salons, and in 1996 they established their Comfort Zone skincare range for premier spas.
Today Davines is certified as a B Corp, which means that they adhere to international standards of public transparency, environmental performance and legal standards. Their role is to balance profitability and purpose.
The B Corp family is chiefly concerned with ending poverty, reducing inequality, creating a healthier environment, generating better, higher paid jobs and building stronger communities. B Corps work at all levels to improve life and business for everyone.
B Corps use business as a means to drive a greater force for good: utilising profits and growth to improve the lives of their employees, communities and the wider environment.
Sustainable beauty is an important concern for the Davines corporation:
- Davines products are specially formulated using natural ingredients
- The packaging is produced to minimise the impact on the environment
- The materials used are generated using renewable energies
- Everything ties in with their corporate values and responsibilities as a B Corp.
