Healthy Living For Healthy-Looking Skin
Helga Hefner, Aveda’s spa treatment and education development and global trainer says, “Moving toward a healthier life style greatly influences healthy-looking skin and your state of well-being.” The key to success is to take a low-stress approach to your healthy life style makeover. “Pick a healthy habit you feel drawn to and do it every day for 28 days so it becomes automatic for you. Then add another healthy habit next month. If you follow this strategy you will have 12 new life-enhancing practices and be closer to a healthier way of living in just one year.” 1

Tradition Meets Science Green Science’s lead formulation chemist Brandie Johnson reveals Aveda’s unique starting point saying, “Really, the best place to start, is with traditional ingredients and beauty rituals.” This not only gives us the best of science and nature, but it can lead to surprising discoveries that help us develop innovative, new skin care.

Numbers You Can Trust Our percentages are taken from clinical testing. This means they speak to scientifically proven and measurable findings—not perceived results. We’re proud to share the results the Green Science™ system has on your skin, in our salons, in our labs, our communities and our world.
“Great things can happen when scientists view raw materials in a new way,” explains Brandie. Her team first turned to nopal cactus— grown on a small, family-owned and run farm located on the central coast of California—for Green Science,™ because of its legendary ability to retain moisture even in desert climates. But the research team made a surprise discovery: nopal cactus actually helps skin boost its natural collagen production.
Naturally Derived We’re committed to the use of naturally derived ingredients. So when formulating Green Science™ Replenishing Toner we chose exfoliating salicylic acid derived from wintergreen essential oil. Similarly, the toner’s skinrenewing glucosamine and moisturizing ceramide 3 are from a naturally occurring yeast bio-fermentation rather than from animal products.
Ingredients Active in the World We’re very pleased that many of Green Science skin care’s ingredients have an effect not just on your skin, but on communities around the world. Aveda’s use of organic argan oil—widely used in indigenous cooking and beauty rituals— from Cooperative Targanine in Morocco, an eco-minded women’s cooperative, helps strengthen the socio-economic standing of women. Plai oil purchased for Green Science products sustains farmers working in rural Thailand.
