Desert Shadow is a recognised Trade Mark of Desert Shadow Pty Ltd

Our Mission

The company

In 2008 Desert Shadow was born from the vision of having genuine Certified Organic hair care & colours that dont need any of the usual chemical enhancers to give good results.

Going back to the 'old ways' of using raw plants to create safe colours for the hair has been a journey that bought forth our 12 shades of colour.

The company has strong ethics and passion which is seen in the small things they do each day to create change and a ripple effect that radiates out.

" To promote healthy living through genuine organic hair & body alternatives."


What are we passionate about?

Organic Certification

We love organic products and we always support those products who have taken the step to be certified by a recognised Organic Certification body such as NASAA, ACO & USDA. We feel this is an important step in supporting the organic industry and keeping it transparent, trusted and real. Many brands use the excuse that organic certification is expensive, yes it does cost money but it is worth it, when you weigh up the pros and cons it is actually quite fair and affordable. Businesses who are transparent and honest will persue organic certification. Those who are not probably wont but they will still be happy to ride the wave of popularity of the organic movement.

We are certified with NASAA & USDA. We are required to have a minimum of 97% Certified organic ingredients in our products. All of our colours & treatments are 100% Certified organic so we more than meet that standard. Yes we pay a subscription fee for our certification and we are happy to do so because it helps the organic farmers and the industry in general. Unfortunately the use of the word organic is now wide spread and there is no regualtion to ensure the claims are true. The only way to know it is a genuine Organic Certified product is to find the logo.


Fairtrade & ethical sourcing of ingredients

We are strong believers in fairtrade and buy and source these products in our everyday lives as well as in the business. There is no room for exploitation or unethical work practises in our world of Desert Shadow so here is how we sleep well at night in knowing what we do and who we choose to buy from does make an impact however big or small, the ripples will create change in some way. We have a close relationship with our suppliers of the hair colour ingredients. We visit them every few years to ensure we are happy with the standards and conditions people are working in. We only source from suppliers overseas if we have visited their working space and we aim to source locally as much as possible for all herbs and ingredients that are farmed here in Australia.
