Straight out of Brooklyn, where creativity and culture come together, amika are a collective of hairstylists, artists, chemists and product junkies. They like to bend the rules, breaking out of the industry standards that don’t make sense. They were kind and clean before it was a thing and their products have always been cruelty-free. They are vegetarian-friendly with zero sulfates, parabens, MIT, MCI, phthalates or artificial colors. Amika exclude over 1,300 questionable ingredients banned by the European Union to ensure their products are safe, non-toxic, yet effective. Amika are on a quest for good: good for you and good for the planet.
