Founded - Mary Centofanti
Let's start with Davroe, founded by Mary Centofanti. Mary's passion and commitment to delivering premium quality haircare products has been at the forefront of the brand for over 35 years. Her focus on bringing gentle and trusted products to customers is still as focused today as it was when she started on her journey.
Centofanti says "As a constantly evolving and adapting company we are excited to continue to bring new and innovative products to the market. We are extremely proud to be a family owned business that formulates and manufacturers our own products in our laboratory in Australia. We continue to strive for excellence and love to see our products enjoyed by consumers all over the world.”
Co-Founded - Lotte Davis
Another brand worth mentioning is AG Hair, co-founded in 1989 by Lotte Davis and her husband, John. They combined John's expertise in hairdressing and product performance with Lotte's skills in retail merchandising and design. Together, they have created a brand that outperforms the competition. “We learned as we went, and we sure learned how to solve problems,” Davis says. “When we discovered the vast majority of haircare products are thickened with common table salt, we were motivated to find a better way."
