2021 Spirit of Life Honorees: Nir Kadosh, Vita Raykhman, Shay Kadosh and Chelsea Riggs of Amika.

1amika means "friend" in Esperanto. Esperanto was an international language created to eliminate barriers between people. The name “amika” is a symbol of our belief in the power of community and the beauty of diversity. A friend to hair, hairstylists, to her, him, you and them. We only make products that make us proud. Highly-effective haircare with a scent you can’t forget, packaging that makes you smile and tools that are your forever ally.
Straight out of Brooklyn, where creativity and culture come together, we’re a collective of hairstylists, artists, chemists and product junkies. We like to bend the rules, breaking out of the industry standards that don’t make sense. We were kind and clean before it was a thing. Our products have always been cruelty-free. We are vegetarian-friendly with zero sulfates, parabens, MIT, MCI, phthalates or artificial colors. We exclude over 1,300 questionable ingredients banned by the European Union to ensure our products are safe, non-toxic, yet effective. We're on a quest for good: good for you and good for the planet.
