WHAT GOLDWELL ELUMEN IS …
In technical, tress-industry hair-speak, “Goldwell Elumen(AKA Elumen) is positioned and marketed as a high-performance, oxidant-free hair colour that does NOT contain peroxide or ammonia. The range of Elumen consists of 28 shades plus one clear tone. Elumen is used to create shimmering, shiny, and enduring haircolor without damaging hair.”
According to the Goldwell Elumen Brand website, Goldwell Elumen’s history dates back to 1948 and the creation of Goldwell Fabrikate a chemical company founded by Hans Erich Dotter whose mission was to create a chemical company to produce cosmetics exclusively for hairdressers and stylists.
The company expanded into the U.K. in 1958, Canada in 1979, America in 1982, and entered into Asian markets in 1989. Now it holds worldwide icon status in the hair treatment industry.
The brand was one of the first companies to utilize computer technology in their product design, creating innovative and cutting-edge new formulas and performing color diagnostics on the Goldwell Elumen color line.
