B CORP MONTH
Founded in 1983, the Davines Group began as a small research lab and has since then grown into an international company - with a presence in over 90 countries - certified by B Corp. But through it all, we've remained a family-owned business, and have been dedicated to creating beautiful products that keep environmental impact and sustainability in mind since 2006. Every year, we release a Sustainability Report to illustrate our goals and achievements over the past year. Here's a look at our progress from 2019-2020.
WHO WE ARE
What is a B Corp?
In 2016, Davines became a certified B Corporation for the first time. In 2019 we re-certified ourselves improving our score from 99 to 117.4. To achieve the B Corp certification, a company must meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability. As a B Corp, Davines pursues not only profit but also purpose, building a more inclusive and sustainable economy.
What is a Benefit Corporation
In 2019, we became a Benefit Corporation as well. When a company acquires the legal status of Benefit Corporation, it reinforces in its by-laws the long-term commitment to operate not only for profit, but also for the benefit of the planet and the community.
Davines Group is dedicated to the professional haircare market with the Davines brand, and the skincare market with the brands [ comfort zone ] and /skinregimen/. We specialize in the creation of handcrafted high-quality products, which are scientifically developed using advanced cosmetic technology.
