Carasa Group


The Farvital-Carasa Laboratorios History

FARVITAL-CARASA LABORATORIOS was founded in 1930 by Mr. Emiliano Carasa, who after his years of experience in Paris as a well-known hairdresser and salon owner for the elite of the French capital, decided to return to Spain to set up his own company. He started his manufacturing career as a pioneer in hair dyes, offering quality products right from the start.

In 1940 he launched to the market the first semi-permanent hair dye, Komol. This hair color was formulated in collaboration with his French colleagues, famous laboratories that nowadays are internationally renowned multinational firms. FARVITAL - CARASA LABORATORIOS became one of the first hair color manufacturers in the world with his famous slogan: “20 years younger in 15 minutes”.

Since it launched its first semi-permanent colouring, which was followed by a permanent dye in 1953, FARVITAL-CARASA LABORATORIOS has maintained a constant line of research and innovation, which has been reasserted in recent years with our R+D department.
