The staff at Organic Salon Systems are a team of highly trained professionals that have been deliberately selected from a wide range of backgrounds and areas of expertise to achieve one common goal: to raise the awareness and eradicate dangerous chemicals in the professional salon environment.  The diverse but well coordinated combination of business, beauty, technology, marketing, logistics, advertising, and distribution skills have created a small but uniquely effective high-performance team that relentlessly and persistently make a substantial impact o the salon industry.  

One team member described the company's polarizing mission by saying "Changing salons for the better each and every day is the pursuit that drives our passion, energizes our motivation, and rewards our hard work".
