Babo Botanicals Launches at SalonCentric

Anne Moratto | December 9, 2014 | 6:34 PM

 Babo Botanicals, created by a former L’Oréal Professional and Redken product developer, goes right back to her professional roots.  Combining her passion for beauty and natural products, Kate Solomon created an all-natural, dairy, soy and gluten free line of professional hair, skin and sun care products for extra sensitive skin, be it babies or adults. Babo Botanicals is rolling out to 50 SalonCentric stores beginning February 2015.

 According to their press release,  Babo Botanicals "is experiencing a rapid growth in salons, spas, apothecaries and natural specialty stores." Solomon combined her  passion for natural products with her professional hair care experience. Prior to L’Oréal’s Professional Products division, she taught bee-keeping in rural Paraguay in the US Peace Corps. “I always made my own soaps and balms out of honey and beeswax growing up," says Solomon. "Working with natural ingredients is my great love.  I developed Babo for my family’s hair and skincare needs.  It is a dream come true to partner with SalonCentric because we share the same values on education and Babo will stand in the company of great professional brands. I am thrilled that salon professionals will have greater access to Babo Botanicals’ wonderful, natural products."
