A WORD FROM THE FOUNDER

Iles Formula is the culmination of 4 decades in hair and years of studying and experimenting with exotic fruits and plants from the world’s rainforests to completely transform hair to a nurtured state. My awareness for a cleaner planet and my obsession to save trees evolved through those studies.

WHERE NEXT?

Our goal is to become carbon-neutral by 2030. On our journey to achieving this goal, we are constantly improving all aspects of our business regarding sustainability. New products must be more sustainable than existing products they replace. We strive to use 100% recycled plastics by 2023. We work closely with our suppliers to ensure that every part of the value chain is optimized to become as sustainable as possible, this includes minimizing transportation. And we educate our salon customers and consumers on ways to preserve water while using the product, as the usage has the highest carbon impact during the product lifecycle.
