Redken Laboratories was founded in 1960, by American actress Paula Kent and her hairdresser, Jheri Redding (thus the name "REDKEN") began with three products and an intensive education program for hairdressers about the chemistry of hair and skin. Redken Laboratories was based in California until 1993, L'Oreal purchased Redken and now its headquarters are on 5th Avenue NYC. Redken soon began to develop patented protein technologies and now holds over 60 global patents on products and ingredients. Today, Redken is a global leader in professional haircare products and services. Redken formulas were developed based on three principles:
- Protein technology (since hair is composed primarily of protein)
- An acidic pH of 4.5-5.5, complementing the natural pH of the hair and skin
- Products recommended exclusively by licensed cosmetologists
