climate neutrality

It Isn't good if it doesn't do good

All KMS products are climate neutral*. For more information on the supported climate protection, click below.
*Often also called ‘carbon neutral’, describing the reduction and compensation of carbon emissions to zero, but scientifically ‘climate neutral’ refers to all greenhouse gases, not only carbon dioxide. Excluding travel & sample sizes. 



Saving the world comes in many shapes and sizes. With uncertainty ruling the world, one thing remains clear. The fact that we are conscious about what we want in life. And a conscious lifestyle requires conscious choices.
Discover your new conscious choice: KMS CONSCIOUSSTYLE – high performing products with a minimum number of ingredients.

what's new

We are pleased to introduce the Kao Salon Industry Recovery Initiative, a framework for our continuing programs and activities solely focused on helping salons recover and rebuild as they emerge from the COVID-19 crisis.
The initiative provides industry professionals with tangible, localized resources including business and educational support to ensure their businesses are not only restored, but thriving in the months ahead.
Our priority during this crisis has been to galvanize our efforts around the full and complete recovery of the industry as a whole, with special focus on every one of our partners and stylists.
We look forward to continuing to bring these programs to you in the upcoming weeks via our social media platforms, apps and your local sales and education team.
