Committed to bringing a positive change in the beauty industry, world leader in professional hair color, care, and styling for over decades, Wella Company has launched its latest innovation, a first-of-its-kind full-on Eco-ethical professional hair and body care brand, weDo/ Professional in India.
Natural Hair & Body Care, Vegan, Recyclable
weDo/ Professional is a new eco-ethical brand, offering a range of vegan, cruelty-free, and 100% recyclable products, with a minimalist formula. Co-developed with the scientists of the Wella Professionals hair care labs, and in collaboration with hairdressers, each product has been designed with professional performance in mind. Being an “Eco-ethical” brand, weDo/ Professional looks at a set of environmental, animal, and human impact standards with an objective of being as good as possible, while simultaneously remaining honest and transparent about when certain goals are still beyond reach, but in development.
The weDo/ Professional lineup offers 14 products, including 4 multi-purpose hybrid products for hair and body. This range consists of two unique technologies which are efficient in conditioning hair, first is a sulfate-free cleansing technology that makes cleansers particularly gentle, with a low level of natural origin surfactants, leaving the scalp at an optimal pH. The second, a silicone-free coating technology found in weDo/ Professional conditioners and masks, formulated with olive oil derivatives that act as natural-origin conditioning agents, to naturally envelope the hair fiber.
Emphasizing Wella Company’s commitment to positive change, Manish Bhagat, GM – Wella India Subcontinent Business, says, “With the launch of weDo/ Professional in India, we are tapping into the growing consumers’ desire for products that perform, while being conscious of the impact to the environment. Not only have we developed a consolidated range of multi-functional products that push the boundaries of the industry’s natural and ethical standards, but we aim to be as transparent as possible. We intend to start a dialogue and gradually push for positive change within the hair and beauty industry at large.”

This Partnership will allow weDo/ Professional to have a broader impact beyond the products it develops and will help bring to life further its mission to act together towards a more sustainable world. Plastic Bank fights ocean plastic and alleviates extreme poverty by empowering disenfranchised communities to turn pollution into wealth. Collected plastic can be exchanged by residents for rewards such as cash, school tuition, healthcare, or insurance.
More than 4 million plastic bottles collected from the environment so far
