French cosmetics company L’Oreal SA announced today they are responding to the rapidly growing natural beauty trend by releasing its first vegan, 100 percent plant-based hair dye collection today called Botanea.

The addition of this new hair color line is a reaction to the rapidly evolving natural and organic personal care market, which was worth around $11 billion internationally in in 2016 and is slated to likely double by 2024, according to Ernst & Young.

Platinum blonde-creator L’Oreal is also hoping to bolster their professional-products segment, which has been the slowest-performing unit for the past seven consecutive quarters. As more millennial consumers demand transparency and look to lighten their toxic loads, professional hair care has taken a hit since it’s traditionally been difficult to formulate professional hair dye without ammonia and other potentially dangerous chemicals.

“We’ve managed to marry naturalness with a professional result without compromising on either point,” Marion Brunet, head of the L’Oreal Professional brand, said at a launch event in Paris. Traditionally plant-based professional hair care has been limited by color choices and intensity.

Botanea is sourced from three plants found in India and will be available in European salons in 2018.
