Yes! All amika hair products share the same signature fragrance that we like to call the "amika scent". This intoxicating aroma is a blend of warm vanilla, spicy sweet clover, and fresh citrus, resulting in a truly delightful fragrance.
Most of our amika haircare products are certified vegan, but a few contain animal-derived ingredients. Specifically, our Vault Color-Lock Leave-In Conditioner utilizes hydrolyzed keratin, and our Supernova and Supernova Blonde products contain an animal-derived polysorbate. Additionally, our product, The Shield, uses an animal-derived propylene glycol. However, we're committed to becoming 100% certified vegan and are working hard towards that goal. Nevertheless, we always ensure that all of our products are cruelty-free.
At amika, we firmly stand against animal testing and will never conduct it. Instead, we test all of our products on ourselves, our friends, and willing volunteers - but never on animals. We're proud to be a cruelty-free brand and have earned certification under the Leaping Bunny Standard.
Silicones often get a bad rap, but they're not always harmful to your hair! In fact, they're commonly used in hair care products for their ability to provide shine, lubrication, conditioning, detangling, and even glide and slip benefits. At amika, we carefully consider whether silicone would be beneficial for each product we formulate. While we're not always silicone-free, we don't view its use as a negative thing either.
