We are so happy to meet you and we would love to tell you a few things about ourselves, including what we believe in, our values, and how we put them into action, starting with our purpose.

A TALE OF BEAUTY

Hello, and thank you for taking the first step in our direction. Now it’s our turn; we can’t wait to get to know you. But first, let’s start with a little story.

There once was a family called Bollati from Parma, Italy…

They had a vision to make sustainable haircare products. Starting in their garage, they did just that.

In 1993, their first products were born carrying the Davines logo, a combination of letters from siblings Davide and Stefania.

The family always sought harmony between science and nature. The brand’s in-house lab and chemists made a passion out of this pursuit.

Davide, always energized with wanderlust, looked at the world for inspiration, and Davines grew into the culturally diverse, made in Italy, brand it is today.

The little brand from Parma eventually opened offices in various cities around the world.

Always trying to refine their philosophy, they eventually hit upon the tagline Sustainable Beauty. Two words, juxtaposed, carried so much importance that Davines wrote a manifesto about expressing ideals like “freedom of expression”, “multicultural curiosity”, “transparency” and “interdependence”.

Humanity and respect for the environment grew ever more important, leading the brand to make 100% of the production of its product packaging carbon offset, except the use phase.

As it got larger, it became more and more conscious of making a positive impact on the world, on doing what it could to take responsibility for the planet and improving the one place everyone calls home.

So, in 2016 Davines became a B Corp and in 2019 became a Benefit Corporation to further their mission to use business as a force for good.

All this helped the brand find its true purpose: to be the best for the world, creators of good life for all, through beauty, ethics and sustainability.

After years of dreaming, the Bollati family built the carbon neutral Davines Village where every product is crafted with 100% renewable energy. It opened in Summer of 2018 as the physical incarnation of sustainable beauty.

This brief family story reads like a fairy tale, but sometimes fantasy and reality come together to make something beautiful and good. You just have to believe.

Sustainable Beauty

At Davines, we believe that living a balance of beauty and sustainability, what we call “sustainable beauty" can improve our lives and the world around us.

Our vision of sustainability has a range of connected meanings:

Sustainability as a commitment to have a positive impact on the environment and society.
Sustainability in regard to the effectiveness of our products and the safety of our customers, thanks to the privileged use of natural ingredients, enhanced with cutting-edge cosmetic technologies and an artisinal spirit.
Sustainability in regard to “freedom of creation." Our decisions are led more by intuition than calculation.

Sustainability in regard to ethics, which in ancient Greek means “house, shelter, lair." Honored to be a family company based in Parma, Italy, we make our professional environment a home where one can develop and create sincere and trustful relationships with others.

By creating beauty sustainably, we encourage people to take care of themselves, of the environment in which they live and work, and of the things they love.

Our Home Is A Village

Based in Parma, the Davines Village is not just our headquarters, it is our home for sustainable beauty. A luminous greenhouse, a restaurant and co-working space. Filled with green spaces and scientific botantical gardens, the Village is dedicated to plant species used for our cosmetic formulas.

"The soul of Davines is expressed through its profound component. The architectural project that we created symbolizes our company; focuses on the wellbeing of those who work here and wants to represent a place where ethics and aesthetics coexist in harmonious balance." Davide Bollati, President
