We are not the usual haircare brand. Our 100% vegan and cruelty free products are developed out of love for animals, as they should not be part of Vegan haircare products. By providing high quality vegan beauty, we make it easy for everyone to take a step towards a sustainable and friendlier world.
By choosing Maria Nila, you choose cruelty free, climate friendly and colour protecting Vegan haircare produced in Sweden. Our chemists develop our products with carefully chosen ingredients that make a difference for clients, salons, animals and the environment. We have our own product development, production, ﬁlling and warehouse in our factory in Helsingborg, Sweden, and from here we ship all over the world.
Our safety and quality checks in every step of the production chain assure that our products have the highest possible quality, in every single unit. By driving and controlling the entire process from concept to product, we are able to guarantee healthy working conditions and high quality formulas.
Together with these organizations
we create a cruelty free world
We live in a society where we have to take responsibility for animals, the environment and our future generations. Animals are a great part of our planet and they shouldn’t be plagued or exploited due to humanity’s vanity. Therefore, we see it as a matter of course to produce products with 100% vegan ingredients.
We are certifid by The Vegan Society, PETA and Leaping Bunny, which all are global animal welfare organizations. Their logos are featured on our packaging and means that the consumer can be sure that our assortment is both animal friendly and vegan. I the future, we hope that all beauty products around the world will be vegan and environmentally friendly.
When you buy our products, you contribute to planting new trees to our world!
Maria Nila is proud to work with Zeromission and Plan Vivo! We support the project Taking Root. Taking Root collaborates with farmers in some of the poorest parts of the world for reforestation of forests. This is achieved by encouraging farmers to replant the under-utilized parts of their farms in exchange for direct payments. The farmers families are offered an income and the project helps to mitigate the effects of climate change. Farmers can work on a long-term basis and focus on caring for the forest instead of shutting down for economic results in the short term.
In 2018, we broke new ground within sustainable beauty by opening up the doors to our new, innovative factory and beauty hub. By quadrupling the production, we have now increased our vegan, cruelty free and climate compensated assortment that makes it easier for everyone to take a step towards a friendlier world.
Located at the very heart of our organization in south of Sweden, our new beauty hub covers an area of 4500 sqm, meaning a manufacturing capacity multiplied by four. Here operates the whole process from creative ideas to ﬁnished products of the rack, meaning that we cover all development processes inhouse. From trend forecasting and resourcing of new ingredients, to chemistry, formula development, ﬁlling of bottles and ﬁnally storing in a warehouse on their way to salons all over the world.
Our customized factory is designed to produce sustainable beauty on a new level. Features like a roof covered by solar panels correlative to the energy usage of 60 households and a circular air condensation equipment, which allows for the residual heat to be transferred back into the production process, means great energy efﬁciency that makes the most out of the invested resources. A breakdown in numbers tells that the new beauty hub has a capacity of producing 5000 products per hour, generating less energy and emissions per produced unit than ever before. Thanks to the latest machinery, we now also make it possible for other beauty categories such as skincare, makeup and perfumes to be produced in a sustainable and environmentally friendly way.
With a modern and holistic view on working conditions, we take on a bigger responsibility for our employees by providing a fully equipped gym centre, charging stations for all the company’s electric cars and a 64 sqm plant wall to enhance the air quality indoors, to name a few. Inside the building, the laboratory ‘The Innovation Room’ and ‘The Beauty Studio’ also make way for great creativity to further create upcoming trends, educate hairdressers and develop tomorrow’s haircare products, just like our chemists developed the world’s ﬁrst vegan wax collection in 2017.
Stepping into this new era, we further strengthen our long-time partnership with Plan Vivo and Zeromission by investing in climate compensated projects. Planting trees in reforestation projects around the world, accordingly to every product sold by Maria Nila. In summary, our new beauty factory takes us one big step further to becoming climate neutral in every part of the product lifecycle, from raw material to recycling, and positions the brand as groundbreaking pioneer within vegan and sustainable beauty.
