The FEKKAI Heritage
To create high performance, salon professional products that shatter the myth that “clean products” are less performative. Our brand promise, “clean without comprise” refers to both the planet and the user experience.
“Being green became important to me over a decade ago, and since then I’ve made a commitment to live a more sustainable life both personally and professionally. A natural next step was to take my passion for the environment and make an impact on the beauty industry.” Frédéric Fekkai
The best botanicals from nature + cutting edge, clean science innovation = the hair of your dreams. Our Salon grade, EWG-compliant formulas are individually created by Frédéric Fekkai and our network of clean science chemists around the world. Each ingredient is intentionally selected for their specific ability to address the needs, immediate and long term, of both the scalp and hair. Each formula is personally tested by Frédéric Fekkai himself, along with stylists in our FEKKAI flagship salons and within our global stylist network. Formulas can be revised as many as 10x to ensure that they deliver the absolute best performance for stylists and consumers alike.
Our commitment to sustainability is full circle, one way we do this is by incorporating eco-certified, Quali-tree sustainably sourced raw ingredients.
We are proud to be the first major haircare brand to walk away from virgin plastic. In 2019 we made a solid commitment to reducing ocean bound plastic waste by purchased over 64 million grams of PCR (post-consumer recycled plastic) in year 1 alone. Humble, recycled gallon milk jugs get a new life as part of our FEKKAI 3.0 bottles or jars. Our PCR content ranges from 30-95% depending on the product and even our shipping boxes and packing materials are 100% recyclable.
Our Commitment to Sustainability
As Frédéric always says, “Looking good shouldn’t be at the expense of the planet”. We have one planet, and we must take care of her. Sustainability at FEKKAI is a way of life and the sum of all the choices that we make. In addition to our packaging and ingredient decisions, our salons are Green Circle Salons and recycle 95% of their beauty waste. In our corporate office, you will see refillable water bottles, recycling stations and even a snack bar that offers clean, vegan, and sustainable options to our team members.
In August 2022, we are proud to bring to market our Green Aerosol Collection, powered by Solstice, the world’s first earth friendly, non-ozone depleting aerosol propellant. This was a project many years in the making that many said was impossible. The future is bright for sustainable beauty and getting brighter each day as more and more people lean into this with both their hearts and wallets. We cannot wait to see the final versions of the sustainable clean science innovations that our lab partners are currently working on that will further eliminate by-product waste and carbon emissions.
For that post-salon look.
