Sustainability

Our products are plant-based, cruelty-free, biodegradable, organic. Being eco-friendly is a long and difficult path, we are not perfect but we are trying hard!

Most of the products that go down the sink are biodegradable and very low in toxicity, so it is safe to send them down the sink. We even have bleach without ammonia!

Lower pollution

Reduce, reuse, recycle

A big part of our furniture and objects are second hand. Most bottles are made with post consumer plastic. We divide and recycle as much as possible

Energy saving

The best energy is the one that is not consumed, so we try to be efficient. As an example, we leave the lights off during the night

Simplicity

Quality of services and products over quantity. We believe in simplicity and effectiveness. Because overproduction is killing our planet

Community

Our aim is educating customers and building around us a community of eco-beauty-friendly people

Biodiversity

The more the merrier, in all senses. So far we are 6 nationalities co-existing in a beautiful synergy

Tireless search for the best products and services for your health and the health of the planet

Research

Each person is unique, important and has its circumstances. In Gaia Salon, you will always be heard

Your needs

A holistic approach to beauty

We firmly believe that to be beautiful outside you need to be healthy inside. It is not only about appearance, it is also about food, stress, water temperature and amount of product. 

Therefore, during our initial consultation we test the health of your hair and we ask you how do you take care of it. We educate you and teach you how to take care of your hair, so your approach also changes. 

Our products

Conventional brands like L'Oreal, Wella, Redken... are very effective and might give good results, but are they good for your health and the health of the planet?

 

In Gaia Salon, we strongly believe that being beautiful should not imply harassing and polluting the environment, or damaging your own health. Now, a product like that can exist? YES! there are brands that care that have developed products that offer technically perfect results, but they are much much more respectful with your health and the planet.

Henna Supplies

We also create our own treatments and products by using Ay:urvedic herbs directly from India

These brands a are reference for all those who want to combine health, beauty, efficiency and ethics. It has been proven than substances from plants are simply more biocompatible with your hair and skin.

These products are free from silicones, parabens, petrochemicals, polyeethylene glycol, synthetic fragances... among others.

Therefore, by using these brands, you are taking a long-term compromise with the health of your hair.

Herb Plants

We believe that our beauty needs should not imply harassing and polluting the environment.

As committed brands, they adopt sustainable development at all levels: 

packaging made with post-consumer recycled material,... leading to not polluting the water with chemicals, and 

reduction of the ecological footprint. 

The fact that we want our appearance to be beautiful should not lead to animal suffering.

 

Our brands are 100% plant-based, although some products contain sustainably-produced honey (we can provide a fully-vegan service, no worries!).

Also, does not test the ingredients or the final products on animals, being cruelty-free.
