At KEVIN.MURPHY, we care about creating products with a conscience that lessen our impact on the environment, and this has been our guiding principle since the very beginning. Kevin’s passion for products that are kind to the hair and also kind to the environment has set a precedent within the global hair care industry. From producing square packing that holds more product and uses less plastic, to collaborating with Al Gore in the Climate Reality Project and donating to the Australian Conservation Foundation from product sales, we make every effort to lessen our footprint and to be part of the global solution for change.

We always have and will continue to make every effort to help and protect the environment by utilising packaging that is recyclable. We also look for natural ingredients from sustainable and renewable sources, that are harvested in an environmentally responsible way. At KEVIN.MURPHY, we maintain our commitment to the environmental issues that affect us all.

O.W.P. Facts

Facts

Kevin’s drive to find new solutions to lessen our global footprint and help the environment has led us to transition to Ocean Waste Plastic (OWP). In 2020, we aimed to transition all KEVIN.MURPHY HDPE plastic packaging to OWP. By 2021 we aim to transition our PETG plastics into OWP. We are proud to be the first beauty brand to use 100% recycled OWP, eliminating a projected 360+ tons of new plastic each and every year.

By 2020, we aim to transition all KEVIN.MURPHY plastic packaging to OWP. We are proud to be the first beauty brand to use 100% recycled OWP, eliminating a projected 360+ tons of new plastic each and every year. At KEVIN.MURPHY, we maintain our commitment to the environmental issues that affect us all.

Why OWP? We’ll let the facts speak for themselves:

Up to 8 million metric tons of plastic enters our oceans every year

By the year 2050, there will be more plastic than fish by weight in our oceans

More than 5 trillion pieces of plastic currently litter the ocean (150 million tons)

More than 95% of all plastic packaging is only used once

It’s time to make a difference, before it’s too late.

Natural Surfactants

Natural

A Natural plant-derived surfactants create rich, luxurious lathers that help moisturise and nourish the hair, and all KEVIN.MUPRHY products are naturally free of sulphate surfactants.

Our Washes use only sulphate-free surfactants that effectively cleanse and remove surface oil and dirt, without stripping or depleting hair colour. AHA’s or fruit acids derived from Sugar Cane work to gently exfoliate the hair’s surface without drying or depleting its natural moisture.

Paraben-free Rinses smooth and moisturise the surface of the hair. Nourishing and moisturising agents from Mango and Murumuru Butter help smooth the cuticle and soften hair from root to tip.
