The History of Herbatint
The origins of Herbatint dates back almost four generations. The first formulations of our natural hair products, based on herbal extracts and distillates of botanicals were developed for private use by the nobleman and student of nature, Count Livio della Zuana.
These precious formulas were handed down from generation to generation. This hand me down tradition preserved Herbatint‘s originality and kept its use among a small group of family and close friends.
In 1960 Mr. Michele Albergo, last of the trustees of these ancient formulas and also himself a student of nature, began production and market introduction of Herbatint, in the prestigious industrial area of Via Tiburtina in Rome, Italy. Michele Albergo, with his strong background and experience in natural cosmetics completed an in-depth market analysis which clearly showed a strong consumer trend toward hair products that were less harmful, less aggressive and natural in origin.
Thus the Herbatint line was born. The Herbatint line features color and hair care with a natural base and an acidic pH. Each product enhances the health, vitality and shine of the hair while improving its aesthetic appearance, without damaging it. Herbatint has been the undisputed market leader for thirty years. It can rightly be said that Mr. Albergo was a pioneer in the natural hair color industry. His unprecedented natural formula has been imitated without ever achieving the unparalleled success of the original formula.
The Herbatint line met with immediate success because of its natural quality and outstanding results. The line was unique in that its ingredients are bio-degradable and compatible with the ozone. Herbatint was concerned about the environment long before it became a mainstream concern.
The Herbatint product line excels in quality and consumer’s safety. This is achieved by meticulous quality control of the raw material, GMP standards, state of the art microbiological and toxicological analysis on the end product, as well as long and successful experience in the industry.
Since 1970, thanks to the vision, tenacity, and production and marketing knowledge of Mr. Albergo the company has continued to expand into a modern manufacturing company with a very experienced international technological and marketing team. The traditional beginnings are still evident in the family atmosphere, even as the company continues to expand globally. Currently the Herbatint line is quite successful in 28 countries including Europe, North America, Australia, South Africa, the Pacific and the Middle East.
