WHAT'S IN A NAME?
Saijojo (pronounced "sigh-joe-joe") is one of the five types of Zen. It means "great and perfect practice" and is the expression of life in its purest, most natural form, and the realization of true nature.
By using naturally derived, biodegradable ingredients, and the mildest ingredients, Saijojo hair products reflect this peaceful, healthful philosophy.
is to inspire stylists and their clients to add a little Zen to their lives. We hope that our products will help them take responsibility for the harmful fumes produced in salons (and in homes) - and encourage them to use healthier, more eco-friendly styling options.
After all, true beauty is natural.
ABOUT OUR COMPANY
Saijojo is the brainchild of celebrity hairstylist Mario Verrilli, who struggled with sensitivities to the airborne chemicals in his salon and on set during photo sessions. He then set out to create a line of milder, more natural styling products that would be easier on hair, on the scalp, and on the environment.
After years of testing with several hairstylists, they discovered that natural polymers derived from corn starch would work as well as traditional polymers (plastics) as a holding agent. A breakthrough product - and a revolution in healthy haircare - was born.
Good for Your Hair... Even Better for the EarthWhat are you putting in your body?
A recent analysis by the Environmental Working Group showed that a whopping 89% of the 10,000+ ingredients used in personal care products have not been evaluated for safety. Most styling products use petrochemically-derived (plastic!) holding agents, which get sprayed into the air, rinsed off into our water supply, and inhaled into our lungs every day.

We minimize the use of synthetic chemicals, and never use artificial fragrance or FD&C dyes - only natural colorants.
