Clean Formulas, Clean Air Salons, Professional Performance

At Rare Earth Hair, we believe in a holistic approach to haircare that encompasses clean formulas, clean air salons, and exceptional performance. Our O&M (Original & Mineral) professional salon system was born in a salon in Paddington, Australia, made by hairdressers for hairdressers. It encompasses a comprehensive range of hair products, including permanent hair color, liquid glosses, lighteners, haircare, and styling essentials. We are proud to introduce you to the future of clean hair color technology – O&M CØR.color.

Pioneering Clean Color Technology

CØR.color: The “CØR” in our next-generation hair color symbolizes the core of our brand, which is a commitment to creating the cleanest color in the world by eliminating harsh chemicals. The “Ø” represents our unwavering dedication to zero Ammonia, PPD, and Resorcinol.

Rare Earth Hair is among the first haircare companies globally to produce professional-grade Ammonia, PPD, and Resorcinol-free permanent hair color. We are committed to providing low-chemical solutions for today’s conscious clients and dedicated stylists. Our CØR.color isn’t just a solution to the industry-wide problem of increasing chemical sensitivities but also a compelling narrative in the quest for effective, natural beauty solutions.

106 CØR.color Shades

Our extensive color palette offers 106 CØR.color shades that are free of Ammonia, PPD, and Resorcinol. These shades are exclusively formulated, achieving up to 5 levels of lightening and 100% gray coverage. Plus, they smell amazing!

Original Exclusions

We’ve excluded three harmful ingredients from our products:

  • Ammonia: Typically used to swell the hair and open cuticle scales for better color penetration. We’ve replaced it with MEA, an alkaline agent that mimics Ammonia’s role without the unpleasant side effects.
  • PPD (Paraphenylenediamine): Known to cause dermatitis and scalp issues. We’ve replaced it with low levels of PTDS, enabling up to 50% of PPD-allergic stylists and clients to safely use our color.
  • Resorcinol: A toxic coloring agent we’ve replaced with 2-Methylresorcinol and 4-Chlororesorcinol, which are kinder to the environment and less likely to cause sensitivities.

Our CØR.color maintains limited chemical inclusions to ensure top-notch performance, guaranteeing client satisfaction while prioritizing their well-being.
