Who is Keune
JM KEUNE has been making hair products for pros since 1922. They are a family company based in Holland.
In the 1922, Jan Keune was an Amsterdam pharmacist fascinated by curls. Jan experimented until he invented a liquid perm formula – a big hit with the ladies and the first Dutch product to conquer the world.
Keune also invented….
As big hair became fashionable, Jan introduced hairspray and a cold perm formula. Then he launched hairspray in a “new” aerosol can – just press and spray! Hair gel was his next innovation. And later, Jan’s son George introduced mousse – preferring this French word to the English “foam”. George Junior brought us Tinta Color, a global success story. Their latest invention are their mens shampoo stick. Just twist the bottom to push the shampoo stick out of the container to shampoo your hair. Great for traveling and excellent for using at the gym.
Caring for our world
They are all part of a larger world that we need to treat with care. Your best you also means helping people with disabilities feel valued, everyday. The Keune Group offers employment to those with mental disabilities, as part of our team. We also welcome displaced people, who’ve had to flee their countries and seek new lives with us.
Keune also loves animals, and is proud of our cruelty-free practices. Then there’s our planet, which needs us, too. So we save energy, reduce water waste, use natural lighting – and even take advantage of the chilly Dutch climate to cool products during production. And thanks to our strict quality standards, we are Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) Resources certified.
