Its unique oil-delivery system has replaced the need for a highly toxic substance like ammonia to swell and blast open the cuticle. Instead, soya oil softens the cuticle allowing gentle heat to open it, deliver the color into the hair shaft, and create a permanent result.
You may ask why other color lines aren't employing this oil-delivery system that's beenproven to work for 15 years, and in 32 countries around the world. Simply put, it's more expensive to manufacture this type of color line. The ingredients required are more costly, so profit margins are affected, and large corporations are much more driven by their bottom
line. Fortunately, this corporate attitude provided an opportunity for a couple of hairdressers and a chemist from the UK to come up with an alternative, and Organic Color Systems™ was created. Although it has gained much popularity in Europe over the last 15 years, and has been available in this country for 7, the growth has really only begun to explode in recent
times with the consumer's focus on eco-conscious alternatives that are less damaging to their health, but still give them a superior salon-quality result.
It is important to understand that when one is using the term "organic" that it has different definitions depending on the context. An "organic tomato" is grown with no chemicals and can be certified as "organically grown". Organic Color Systems™ is obviously not a food and there are no such designations for organic hair color. That being said, Organic Color Systems™ is made up of at least 5 Certified Organic Ingredients.
At least 89% of the Organic Color System™ line is naturally derived and 10% is made up of organically grown ingredients. This is a huge percentage in contrast to other color lines. Also, the line is completely cruelty-free as they are never tested on animals and contain absolutely no animal by-products and are qualified vegan products. Not only does it have ZERO ammonia, it also contains ZERO resorcinol, which is a pigment that has been banned in the European Union due to its adverse health effects. Ammonia is an extremely toxic ingredient and resorcinol is a toxic substance with carcinogenic properties much like parabens. Organic Color Systems™ products are free of ammonia, resorcinol, parabens, and the other toxic and carcinogenic ingredients commonly found in other products.
