Vegan products by Paul Mitchell

We know that finding great vegan products can be challenging. That's why we've made it easier for you and your colourist to choose from the wide selection of vegan products - from permanent colour products like the color XG®, to our demi-permanent The Demi and balayage favourites like Skylight®.

All Paul Mitchell Professional Hair Color products are not tested on animals and do not contain any animal-derived ingredients. Instead, we use plant-based ingredients that are great for your hair – like cottonseed oil, rice protein and sunflower extract (more on these below!) – or synthetic ingredients instead.

What goes into our colour?

Cottonseed Oil

Used in many skin, hair care and makeup products, cottonseed oil is loaded with natural antioxidants and rich in vitamin E. The linoleic acid in cottonseed oil helps promote hair growth, whilst the ceramides strengthen hair and make it glossy and smooth.

Rice Protein

To maintain healthy hair, your hair needs protein. It fills the gaps in your cuticles, making hair stronger and more manageable. Gentle for all skin types, hydrolyzed rice protein is often used in hair care products for those allergic to soy or wheat proteins.

Sunflower Seed Extract

Sunflower seed extract has many benefits during the colouring process. Rich in fatty acids and vitamin E, it had deep moisturising properties, prevents colour fading and eliminates brassiness. It also provides intense UV protection and adds shine.
