Kevin Murphy

When searching the world for ingredients Kevin Murphy looked for companies that use mirco cultivation, organic growing practices or ecologically sound wild harvesting techniques to ensure the Kevin Murphy range is of the very highest natural quality. 

Born from the same philosophy as skincare, Kevin Murphy products take a totally different approach to haircare and are weightlessly designed to deliver performance, strength and longevity.







Kevin Murphy cares about the environment and recognises the seriousness of dangerous climate change. We make every effort to do our part to help the environment by utilising packaging that is recyclable or biodegradable. We use natural ingredients from sources that are sustainable and renewable and are harvested utilising methods that do not cause any harm to the environment.

All Kevin Murphy hair products are sulphate free, paraben free and cruelty free.
