At KEVIN.MURPHY we care about the environment. We look for resources that are sustainable and renewable. We chose to use paper packaging that is made from post-consumer waste and all our secondary packaging is paper or cardboard.

Plastic bags require sunlight to break down, and most end up in landfills. A complete breakdown may not even happen after 500 years.

A paper bag or cardboard box made from recycled material will decompose in a landfill after 6 months, and in compost less than 2 months.

We chose square packaging that holds more volume and uses 40% less plastic in an aim to take up less space in a landfill.

When searching the world for ingredients we look for small scale cultivation, organic growing practices, or ecologically sound harvesting techniques.

Lastly, with selected product sales a small donation will be made to the Australian Conservation Foundation in an effort to lesson our global carbon footprint.

Born from the same philosophy as skincare, KEVIN.MURPHY products are designed to weightlessly deliver performance, strength and longevity. Founder and stylist Kevin Murphy introduced his namesake professional line to fill a need in the world of session styling. While working on set, Murphy found his looks often fell flat. Unsatisfied with conventional hair care products on the market, he turned to advanced skincare technology to deliver weightless texture with gentle formulas created using natural ingredients. Products feature vitamins and amino acids to repair and thicken hair. Natural moisturizers from smooth and soften hair, while antioxidants from fruits and flowers reduce hair breakage and chemical damage.

Today the brand shares cutting edge style via modern technology – straight from the runways of the world to the salon floor, from hair artisan to consumer. KEVIN.MURPHY is recognized as an industry innovator, with its products having received numerous awards worldwide, including a coveted Allure Beauty Breakthrough Award.

Found in over 40 countries, all KEVIN.MURPHY products are sulphate-free, paraben-free and cruelty-free.

KEVIN.MURPHY prides itself on the “Choices We Make” – a company-wide initiative to bring stylists and consumers products that are both of the highest natural quality and environmentally ethical. When searching the world for ingredients, the brand looks for companies using micro cultivation, organic growing practices or ecologically-sound wild harvesting techniques to ensure that the KEVIN.MURPHY range meets these standards.

In 2011, Murphy was selected as a Climate Connector for Al Gore’s non-profit, The Climate Reality Project. Murphy works within the stylist and hairdresser community to educate the industry on reducing its carbon footprint and the effects of climate change. In 2012, the brand was given the PETA (People for Ethical Treatment of Animals) seal of approval as a cruelty-free company that does not harm or test on animals.

At the salon level, KEVIN.MURPHY offers GREEN.SALON Project, a virtual salon that demonstrates initiatives that salons and individuals can undertake to reduce their carbon footprint and the impact on the environment while saving money. Salon owners and employees can virtually build their salon from the ground up to learn more about small changes with a big impact.
