Working at top salons with high profile clients, John Masters began his career as a stylist in the 1970s in New York City. As his personal interest in organics grew and he began to realize the health risks of working around toxic salon chemicals every day, Masters started experimenting with organic and non-toxic ingredients to create a luxury-organic hair care line, working solely from his New York City apartment. As the line and salon gained recognition, John Masters Organics became known for high quality organic products.
With a ban against using any ingredients that are petroleum or non-carbon based, John Masters Organics ingredients are all certified organic by EcoCert, Quality Assurance International, California Certified Organic Farmers, or Organic Crop Improvement Association. All are recognized by the National Organic Program for the USDA. Synthetic ingredients were created to do the job of naturally occurring ingredients, such as essential oils, herbs and clay. John Masters Organics goes back to basics and uses those natural ingredients that are better for both the body and the environment.
In an effort to keep hair and body as healthy and pure as possible, John Masters Organics products use wild-harvested ingredients and cold-pressed and steam-distilled extracts in place of ingredients such as Ammonia and sulfates. With the Citrus & Neroli Detangler, Aloe Vera is used to soften the hair and soothe the scalp, while Lemon and Neroli smooth hair follicles and placate stressed strands.
