Green Salon’s Positive List of Recommended Hair Cosmetic Products (downholad here)

In order to qualify for the Positve List of Recommended Hair Cosmetic Products the individual product is not allowed to contain certain chemicals. These chemicals are listed in the Green Salon’s List of Banned Chemicals, see below. Legally these chemicals are allowed for use in the EU, but based on scientific evidence Green Salon considers them as major hazards to the hairdresser, the customers, or the environment. Many products may qualify for the Positve List of Recommended Hair Cosmetic Products if they do not contain chemicals from Green Salon’s List of Banned Chemicals.
