ORGANIC COLOR SYSTEM
Organic Color Systems is a high performance range of long-lasting, permanent hair colors containing certified organic extracts and natural ingredients. You can create infinite natural tones and exciting fashion colors. This 100% ammonia-free hair color maintains the hair’s essential moisture and protein levels, so the hair is not damaged by the coloring process.
100% AMMONIA FREE
Ammonia can open up the pores of the skin and staining can occur. But since Organic Color Systems is not made with ammonia little to no staining occurs on the skin.
Skin irritation and burning on the scalp is significantly reduced, due to the pharmaceutical grade peroxide which we use and the absence of ammonia.
Ammonia degrades the hairs protein structure which can lead to banding, hot roots and colors that fade off tone. With Organic Colors Systems there is no banding or hot roots and colors fade on tone!
pH_ScalePlus, a more pleasant salon experience is created, since are no harmful ammonia fumes that can make breathing difficult or cause eyes to swell and tear.
Organic Color Systems also uses the lowest level of PPDs (pigment) possible to effectively color the hair. Our average is 0.6%, as opposed to the legal maximum within the European Union of 6%.
THE pH FACTOR
The hair is left healthy. Organic Color Systems does not take the hair as far from its natural or isometric point on the pH scale as chemical colors do. Hair’s isometric (natural) point is between pH 4.5-5.5. Plus, by using Organic Care Systems after coloring, you are able to return the hair to its correct pH and fully close the cuticle.
Since you are able to fully close the hair’s cuticle back down after coloring by using Organic Care Systems, you can reduce color fade.
UNDER THE MICROSCOPE
The hair samples pictured here are from exactly the same natural level 5 virgin hair. The image on the left shows hair colored with Organic Color Systems level 6 and 20 Volume Activator. The image on the right shows the same hair colored with a leading manufacturer’s ammonia-based color, using a level 6 and their corresponding 20 Volume developer.
As you can see from the photographs Organic Color Systems does not disrupt the integrity of the hairs cuticle layer. In addition, the delicate protein/moisture balance of the hair is preserved. This means improved texture, more shine, greater fade resistance, and color that fades on tone.
SAFE, NATURAL INGREDIENTS
Organic Color Systems contains some of the best natural ingredients to produce a gentle color which gives a superb result every time. A selection of these ingredients and their functions is given below.
Natural soothing and anti-inflammatory agents, such as certified organic chamomile (Anthemis Nobilis) and certified organic comfrey (Symphytum Officinale).
Antioxidants slow down or prevent oxidative reactions in the body. Although necessary for life, oxygen is a highly reactive molecule which can cause damage by producing free radicals. Antioxidants prevent and repair damage done to the body by these free radicals. Organic Color Systems includes the natural antioxidants certified organic orange (Citrus Dulcis) and grapefruit (Citrus Grandis), as well as vitamins C and E.
The conditioning and moisturizing function is fulfilled by Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, which also helps to strengthen hair.
