Frédéric Fekkai Launches Clean Haircare Collection
A new year typically means cleaning up your diet, your fitness routine or your bank account. This year, make it about cleaning your hair, and in turn the environment. According to a press release, seventy-three percent of consumers are open to changing their habits in an effort to reduce their environmental impact. They just need more options.
Enter Frédéric Fekkai, a pioneer in hair care innovation and a fierce advocate of environmentally conscious practices.
Fekkai has taken his passions and channeled them into FEKKAI – a haircare collection with environmentally friendly packaging and plant derived ingredients.
“Being green became important to me over a decade ago, and since then, I’ve made a commitment to live a more sustainable life both personally and professionally. A natural next step was to take my passion for the environment and make an impact on the beauty industry,” says Fekkai. “We are extremely proud to introduce FEKKAI and hope to provide another means for consumers to take small steps towards changing their environmental footprint.”
According to a press release, every bottle in the collection is made with 95% high-grade repurposed plastic and is 100% recyclable. In the brand’s first year, they will repurpose 64 million grams of plastic. That’s roughly 7 million plastic bottles - and they are just getting started. Each FEKKAI product contains optimum levels of natural or naturally-derived ingredients.
Shampoos, conditioners, and treatments then experience the ultimate trial: extensively tested by the world-renowned Frederic Fekkai stylists who put each product through the most rigorous in-salon evaluation processes to date. With a focus on glossing, repairing, strengthening, and protecting the hair, each product is free of parabens, sulfates, silicones and phthalates. The FEKKAI line is also 100% vegan and gluten-free.
The press release further noted that FEKKAI consists of 15 products and 5 silos – Technician Color, Brilliant Gloss, Full Blown Volume, Super Strength and Baby Blonde. Some of the SKUs include:
l The Technician Color Treatment Powerful Flash Mask - which taps the hydrating properties of Mirabelle Plum Seed Oil
l Brilliant Gloss Multi-Tasker Perfecting Crème - a moisture-packed versatile finisher with a soufflé-like consistency which incorporates French cold-pressed olive oil to impart high-shine and protect against frizz
l Super Strength Roots-to-Ends Balm - fortified by the reparative properties of Camargue Rice Water, it can be used as a quick-yet-intense rinse-out mask or can be applied to dry hair and left in all day to maximize its bond-building benefits
FEKKAI haircare line is available at Target, Walgreen, CVS, and Fekkai.com. Available in the UK at Selfridges and Feelunique.com in March 2020.
