This range is said to encourage a plastic-free lifestyle, and offers three shampoo bars and one conditioner bar for all hair types. According to the company, the shampoo bars last up to 70 washes and save two single-use bottles; the fragrance-free conditioner bar saves three single-use bottles.
These bars are palm oil-free, microplastic-free and vegan certified. Additionally, the packaging is reportedly 100% compostable as it is made from FSC certified material.
The four hair care bars include:
- Deep Cleanse Shampoo Bar: A concentrated bar of coconut, peppermint, orange and spearmint to deeply cleanse and condition the hair and scalp to promote thicker and fuller-looking hair.
- Daily Shine Shampoo Bar: A bar full of ingredients to reportedly boost dull tresses to leave the hair looking radiant and feeling soft. This bar also gently cleanses away impurities with hints of grapefruit and lemon.
- Intense Moisture Shampoo Bar: Containing a blend of coconut and cocoa, this bar locks in moisture and hair color while protecting the hair from heat styling, humidity and pollution damage. This is said to result in hair that is softer, smoother and silkier.
- Everyday Gentle Conditioner Bar: This gentle conditioner naturally nourishes while protecting hair color and reducing breakage without weighing down hair.
“Ninety-five percent of beauty packaging is discarded, yet only 9% of plastic globally is recycled,” said Jo Chidley, cofounder of Beauty Kitchen. “So we need to provide truly sustainable products from the inside out, and make them an easy and accessible choice for customers. Businesses have a responsibility to meet this desire and offer truly accessible sustainable consumables and packaging with zero or positive carbon footprints. This is why I am excited about the launch of our 100% plastic-free hair care bars.”
