Organic Colour Systems is the first-ever range of permanent colours made from the maximum amount of certified organic ingredients and the minimum amount of chemicals.
All ingredients are ethically sourced to protect the environment, preserve natural stocks and make as little impact as possible.
Organic Colour Systems is a member of the Cosmetics Toiletry & Perfumery Association that regulates the safety of cosmetic products in the UK. This means that no products are taken from an animal killed specifically for the ingredient, no by-products are taken from the fur industry or slaughterhouse.
GojiSpa owner and Organic Colour Systems distributor Paul Fox elaborates on their aim to reduce the carbon footprint making all their products safer for the environment.
“We also work with ethical suppliers who minimise their environmental impact and pay fair wages in safe working conditions. Organic Colour Systems products are safe and gentle on the most sensitive skin. But we don’t and won’t test them on animals. All products are accredited by Choose Cruelty Free – a non-profit organisation that promotes a cruelty free lifestyle,” he states.
No ammonia is used in any of the Organic Colour System products and all our packaging is recyclable. This helps to colour hair as naturally as possible and to be kind to hair and kind to the South African environment,” Fox concludes.
The wet stretch test
A wet stretch test is done prior to any colour treatment to identify the condition of one’s hair and corrective treatment follows on from those results, to ensure that you get the best possible outcome tailored to suite your hairs specific needs making it a niche system. This system is designed to treat coloured hair gently at every stage of every treatment from shampooing to styling. Most other hair care products use chemicals that strip hair of colour and health as they style, perm and straighten. Because all products are gentle and non-damaging to hair, hair looks healthier and colour stays locked in. All products can safely be used together.
Organic Colour Systems’ full colour range is made up of 64 fully intermixable colours and concentrates; plus a selection of Activators, 2 Lightening powders and oil.
The care range gives a unique range of shampoos, conditioners and reconstructors which are designed to work with the colour range to leave hair looking naturally healthier after the colouring process.
Status Quo uses certified organic chamomile, comfrey and vitamin B5 to maintain your hair’s natural balance, shine and condition, is gentle on hair and skin making it suitable for everyday use.
Aqua Boost uses certified organic aloe, natural black oat extract, vitamin B5 and lecithin to nourish dry or damaged hair and leave it naturally moisturised, smooth and shiny.
Power Build uses certified organic natural sunflower seed extract, natural extracts of lemon, apple and green tea along with wheat protein and vitamin B5 to add strength and volume to hair.
The Organic Colour Systems’ control range of styling products uses absolutely no plastics to coat the hair, preventing styled hair from ending up dry and damaged with that crispy, crunchy feeling. Styling products include Spritz for natural hold and control without the “crispy” feeling as well as Volume which is a mousse designed to give exceptional curl memory, anti-frizz and lustrous shine.
Finally the Create Range is made up of perming and straightening products to transform the look of hair, so whether you want naturally healthy looking curls or you need to tame frizzy and unruly hair without resorting to harsh chemicals then Organic Colour Systems has you covered.
All products are manufactured in Britain and distributed across the world to selected salons who share the ethos of using only the best natural, healthy salon products.
