ROLLAND. MANUFACTURES SINCE 1948.
ORGANIC WAY IS THE EXCELLENT RESULT OF OUR UNIQUE PATH.
Rolland is an Italian group that, since 1948, produces perfumes and cosmetic essences for the highest segments on the market. From perfumes and essential oils our production moved to the hairdressing sector: we were among the first in Italy to produce hair spray, then styling and finishing products with natural extracts. With an international and constant research on trends, design, and ethical-sustainable beauty we have constantly innovated to create, year after year, formulas and treatments dedicated to hair salons and beauty saloon. With constant international research on trends, design and ethical-sustainable beauty, we have continuously innovated by launching, year after year, formulas and treatments dedicated to the most exclusive hair styling and beauty salons. Organic Way is our high point: fruit of over 15 years of work based on the world of natural, biodynamic, organic formulation and on a clean chemistry that offers real and concrete results. With the current accreditation of two integrated quality certifications: ISO 9001 and ISO 22716, Rolland stands out in the Italian cosmetic production sector and in international marketing through a quality management system in accordance with the highest control standards. The architecture of the ISO 22716 certification integrates with the outline of ISO 9001, with the addition of further strict requirements that have an impact on product control and on the manufacturing process.
Organic Way is not, nor will it ever be, tested on animals. For European Union manufacturers, testing on animals has been banned since 2004 on the finished cosmetic and since 2009 for raw materials. The phrase WE LOVE ANIMALS communicates our ethically absolute choices in this direction: first of all the company’s decision not to export OW to China, where importers are obligated to perform testing on animals.
This year, marking the culmination of our work, we obtained PETA Cruelty Free recognition and certification in the U.S.A. PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) is the largest world organisation for the protection of animal rights. PETA has always been at the forefront in the fight against vivisection, experimentation and other brutal treatments of animals.
Water is an essential raw material for many cosmetic products, but it is also the vehicle of microbes and bacteria, which could contaminate the formulas.
To preserve the purity of our products to the maximum, the water contained in them undergoes two natural purifying treatments: reverse osmosis and ozonisation.
Thanks to this double passage, we obtain microbiologically pure water without subjecting equipment and products to ionising radiation and without resorting to the use of chemical disinfectants.
Reverse osmosis is a completely natural process that technology has "borrowed" from nature. It is a safe and effective system, which separates the water from foreign substances through the use of special membranes, called semi-permeable or osmotic.
These membranes allow pure water filtration and retention of foreign substances both in suspension and dissolved. After reverse osmosis, we proceed to water ozonization. Ozone, a natural molecule composed of 3 atoms of oxygen, destroys any residual microorganisms by oxidation, breaking the cell membrane in a few seconds. As a result of these processes, the water is microbiologically purified.
Every day we promote holistic wellness with the Head.Spa and Green Chemistry concept in salons all over the world. To do this we also work on our holistic wellness, on our equilibrium, through in-house yoga.
Through some simple positions combined with correct breathing, yoga regulates the functioning of the endocrine system, of the resulting production of hormones and of the biochemical agents responsible for our moods. In addition to working on muscle lengthening and toning, this thousand-year old holistic discipline alleviates typical types of office malaise like backache and headache and allows improving people’s mental and emotional state.
Yoga, practiced directly in the workplace, helps make people more serene and their minds clearer, so they can work more creatively and effectively.
The practice of yoga, moreover, aiding relationships between we colleagues who share the lessons, has a beneficial influence on corporate harmony, facilitating collaboration and professional synergies.
There is a company of people behind Organic Way who works together to achieve one goal: to promote a healthy and positive lifestyle. Ecology underlies our concrete actions: in company life, in the creation of ecological and reusable supports for the salon, in the totally green display setups inside and outside our facility.
We promote the “Organic way of life” concept in all Organic Way locations, in the academies and beauty salons through a sharing of knowledge (enhanced also through the internet) that goes well beyond the classic themes of hairstyle and aesthetics. Training, communication and our example promote informed and sustainable choices for the environment and the person. Cosm-ethics, fashion and design coexist in a single, transparent path, the Organic Way path.
