Over the past few years, Balmain Hair Couture made a commitment to consistently move forward and improve sustainability practices, social outreach and manufacturing standards. This commitment is centered around three tenets: sustainable products, cruelty-free practices, and positive social impact. Balmain Hair Couture believes in an inclusive and green future of humanity, one defined by a positive relationship with nature and our peers.
Balmain Hair Couture aknowledges the importance of sustainable luxury and aims to create luxury hair care products with a minimal ecological footprint. Seeking for new product packaging to reinvent the codes of luxury is key in this commitment. Using high recyclable packaging, producing in solar-driven facilities, studying on how components can be seperated at end-of-use and minimizing unnecessary packaging have become essential considerations within product development.Being open and transparent about the materials used and guiding customers on correct waste disposal after use, derives from this commitment.
In pursuit of a cruelty-free world, Balmain Hair Couture is opposed to and does not engage or condone any form of animal testing. All Balmain Hair Couture products are either vegan or vegetarian. Across the Balmain Hair Couture collection, there are some animal derived ingredients such as Boar Hair Bristles, Cashmere and Silk Proteins. All animal derived ingredients are sourced without harming or disturbing the animals, their life cycles or ecosystems. Silk Proteins, for example, are extracted from the Silk Moths Cocoons using a delicate method to only harvest the Silk once the nests have been abandoned.
