Giovanni Products Eco Statement

Cruelty-free-never tested on animals, pH Balanced and biodegradable formulas with recyclable packaging. The range consists of shampoos, conditioners, repairing treatments, styling, finishing products, and body and skin care products.

 The Giovanni Rule of Balance - Make each product as pure and natural as possible without sacrificing exceptional product performance.

Arthur Giovanni, the founder of Giovanni was in his early career a leading hair stylist, and a top salon owner in the Hollywood/Beverly Hills area of California. His famous salon “On Sunset” was indeed located on the famous Sunset Strip, and was a hit with many of the Hollywood celebrities. His establishment took on shades of a “hangout”.

At a certain point, Arthur’s hands started to react from the products used in the salons and he tried product after product, in search of a hair care line that would not cause this reaction to his skin. He began to explore the possibility of creating his own full line of professional hair care products, based on this premise. He felt that if he could create products with a base consisting of vitamins, herbs, minerals, proteins, and nutrients, that these products would have greater predictability (i.e. no surprise chemical reactions such as oxidation of color, etc.) and would generally be much better for the hair than the standard wholly chemically based products.

Giovanni Eco-Chic Technology ™

Eco - beauty from the elements • Chic - stylish and fashionable
Technology - alliance with science and nature

All Giovanni products are manufactured in the United States.

A Unique and Celebrated Brand Heritage

The Original formula Mane ‘n Tail® Shampoo and Conditioner have been a best kept secret for beauty aficionados everywhere. The products reached iconic status some 20 years ago when the equestrian audience started using the shampoo and conditioner that they used on their horses, on themselves! “They told their friends, and then the word spread like wildfire,” says Mr. Devon B. Katzev, President of Straight Arrow Products, Inc, the makers of Mane ‘n Tail®.

Mane ‘n Tail® was born when Mr. Katzev’s parents created the shampoo and conditioner formulas on their Katzev family horse farm in New Jersey, USA, that specifically targeted show horses with long flowing manes and tails. The formulas were outstanding and soon the line took off with the equestrian folks, but with one very important twist—the horse to human factor. Soon, the secret was out, consumers everywhere were reaping the benefits that were so coveted by the horse-owners ‘in-the-know’. The silky smooth shampoo formula contains high lathering and ultra-cleansing agents that are fortified with moisturizers and emollients to help leave hair soft and ultra clean. Follow up with the conditioner that helps nourish and aid healthy hair growth, leaving hair looking lustrous and silky. These micro-enriched protein formulas help to prevent hair breakage and repair split ends, achieving the goal of longer, stronger, fuller hair…the results are unbelievable! There has always been a persistent underground rumour that Mane ‘n Tail accelerates hair growth and numerous testimonials from online users pay tribute to its reputation as the quintessential “Long Hair Shampoo” (Visit this small collection of video testimonials from genuine users)

Exclusively In Guardian Health & Beauty Outlets Island-Wide

In Singapore, Guardian Health & Beauty will be the exclusive retailer of the Mane ‘n Tail brand. Look out for this attractive topshelf display during launch across more than 60 outlets island-wide!

Herbacin® - Probably the Best Hand Cream Ever Made...

May 2010 - From the geographical heart of Germany comes a hand cream formula fondly touted by its locals as 'the best hand cream in the world'. Herbacin®, the hand cream brand renowned for its rich tradition and experience in the use of natural ingredients, was born from Germany's deep green forests and flowering meadows over 100 years ago.

By relying on home-grown natural ingredients and selecting only the highest quality plant extracts, Herbacin has come full circle in perfecting its signature hand cream formula.
