For the Animals

Built on Kindness and Creativity

Kavella was founded by an animal-loving cosmetologist in her search for a professional line of vegan, cruelty-free and natural hair care products. She could not overlook that most of the cruelty-free brands were owned by industry conglomerates that did test on animals. Instead of just accepting the reality of the industry, she decided to do her part to change it. She studied cosmetic chemistry and began creating plant-based products, testing and perfecting them on her own hair.

Kavella was built on kindness toward animals, and we continue to help protect them by supporting the following organizations:

Primates Incorporated

Primates Incorporated has a mission to provide spacious and enriching homes to monkeys retiring from research facilities, the entertainment industry, and pet ownership.

The nonprofit was founded in 2004 by Amy Kerwin. She worked with 97 rhesus monkeys for five years in a laboratory at the University of Wisconsin. She believed the least laboratories and society could do is give back by retiring the monkeys into enriching and spacious sanctuaries. Since her work environment did not believe in primate retirement, she resigned in 2004 to focus on Primates Incorporated and has been networking and volunteering ever since.
