About Davines

Founded in Parma, Italy in 1983 by the Bollati Family, Davines Group started as a research laboratory, producing high-end hair care products for renowned cosmetic companies worldwide. After a decade of honing our expertise, the company began creating its own brand of Davines hair care products exclusively for salons, and in 1996 founded Comfort Zone skin care for premier spas. Since the beginning, they’ve focused on crafting quality products that are scientifically engineered to work, and express their distinctive style and spirit.

More than two decades later, the Davines Group community spans over 90 countries, with an headquarters in Parma and New York City, Paris, London, Mexico City, Hong Kong and Deventer (Holland), followed by thousands of salons and spas and hundreds upon hundreds of passionate clients. Their roots are firmly planted in their beginnings as a family-owned research laboratory guided by the same desire for quality products with a sustainable and ethical approach.

“The Davines' wish to become a B Corp is a coherent and concrete expression of our Sustainable Beauty vision and our development model oriented to a prosperous longevity." Davide Bollati President and Paolo Braguzzi CEO.
