The positive list comprises of products that are recommended and may be used in a Green Salon. For a product to be registered on the positive list, it must not include chemicals that are listed on Green Salon’s List of Banned Chemicals, see below. We have taken up chemicals on Green Salon’s List of Banned Chemicals, as these chemicals are particularly problematic for health or environmental reasons. Unfortunately, these chemicals are allowed within cosmetics in EU. Green Salon strive to focus on these problematic chemicals and aim to replace them with less problematic chemicals.
How are products registered on Green Salon’s lists?
Everyone is welcome to send products for an assessment, look up under contacts us. All we need is the name of the product and the full ingredients list.
Assessment and registration on the lists are free of charge.
We are happy to help suppliers and producers with an assessment of the ingredients. The assessment is free of charge and confidential. Products are registered for free and only in agreement.
Products on the negative products list include at least one chemical that is listed on Green Salon’s List of Banned Chemicals, and must therefore never be used or sold in a Green Salon.
The List of Banned chemicals also comprises of chemicals that are carcinogenic, hormone disruptive or teratogenic or that EUs scientific committee assesses as extremely or strongly sensitizing.
