Aveda Skin Care
Aveda (pronounced "ah-vay-da") is one of the best-selling skin care brands in the world. The company was founded in 1978 by Horst M. Rechelbacher. Originally from Austria, Rechelbacher first began working at a salon in Minneapolis in the mid-1960s when he was just 14 years old.

Later in life Rechelbacher became an avid environmentalist and incorporated his love of the environment into Aveda's organic hair care products. All Aveda products contain only natural plants and flower essences combined with aromatherapy. And none of Aveda's products are tested on animals. If you're unsure of any of Aveda's products, consult a company representative before purcashing or ordering.
Today, Aveda's product line includes non-chemical skin care, makeup, perfumes and spa products amidst its broad range of pure botanical products. Women are not the only ones fond of Aveda's organic pure cosmetics, but men also rave about the natural, physiological effects of Aveda's natural ingredients.
To provide more learning opportunities for young people who are interested in beauty careers, Aveda has opened more than 30 institutes/concept schools all over the world. Since Aveda was purchased by Estee Lauder in 1997, Aveda's products are no longer available through retailers. However, exclusive products can only be found in Aveda's professional salons and some Aveda products are available to purchase via internet. A bottle of 8.5-ounce Aveda shampoo or conditioner costs approximately $11 online.
