SANDY uses Original Mineral ‘clean’ hair colour

original mineral hair colour salon

SANDY proudly uses Original Mineral hair colours.


CØR.color is a progressive hair colour product used here at SANDY that is developed by Original Mineral (O&M).  It was created with the vision of helping people live healthier lives by pioneering safe and clean hair colour technology.

Original Mineral (O&M) is free from ammonia, PPD and resorcinol making it a healthier and safer choice for our clients. CØR.color is vegan certified by PETA and its packaging is recyclable.

Great colour without the nasties

Unfortunately, most ‘natural’ hair colour brands don’t get the results that ‘traditional’ hair colours achieve with the use of nasty chemicals.

We find Original Mineral’s clean colour results are even better than chemical-laden products without compromising your health. It’s a win-win for everyone!

Replacing the nasties with kinder alternatives


Ammonia is typically used to swell the hair and open the cuticle scales to allow the colour to penetrate deep within the cortex. For anyone with sensitive skin or scalp, this is an unhealthy additive.

O&M has replaced it with MEA – an alkaline agent that mimics the role of Ammonia, minus the odour, red eyes and irritation.


Paraphenylenediamine is a chemical known to cause dermatitis, reddening and swelling of the scalp and face.

O&M has replaced paraphenylenediaminewith low levels of PTDS (P-toluenediamine Sulfate), enabling up to 50% of PPD allergic stylists and clients to now use colour.


Resorcinol is a popular colouring agent toxic to wildlife and the human immune system.

Shade dependent, O&M replaced it with 2-Methylresorcinol or 4-Chlororesorcinol – two chemicals kinder to the environment and with less potential to sensitise.

+ Mindful of our results-driven industry, O&M CØR.color maintains limited chemical inclusion to ensure the highest degree of performance, ensuring client retention.
