The Hemp Seed Oil Bar Collection is our newest venture in helping us all live a more sustainable life. Hemp is rich in Omega Oils 3, 6, and 9 which moisturize and cleanse the hair. It is also one of the few crops capable of reducing carbon emissions through rapid carbon dioxide uptake. For every ton of Hemp produced, 1.63 tons of carbon is removed from the air. Our goal is to achieve net-zero emissions by the year 2030. As of January 18, 2021, we have already offset 320 metric tons of CO₂.
Each bar comes in a recyclable carton that contains 35% post-consumer fiber material. This keeps waste from landfills and directs it toward recycling plants. We will continue to find ways to go plastic-free in both new and existing products.
Along with Hemp, The Hemp Seed Oil Bars contain fiber reinforcing Ceramides. Ceramides strengthen hair and restore moisture to the scalp. No soap. No harsh chemicals. No Sulfates. No plastic. Simple. Sustainable.
We created four stackable and reusable trays in conjunction with this launch. These trays use a PLA/PHA blend. This makes them 100% biodegradable, plastic-free, & durable. All products are manufactured in-house, which keeps our carbon footprint low. These trays are 3D printed and help save space in the shower or smaller living spaces.
What is PLA/PHA?
PLA stands for Polylactic Acid. PLA contains natural materials and is one of the most popular materials used in 3D printing!
PHA stands for Polyhydroxyalkanoate. PHA is a biodegradable and biocompatible plastic. It is produced through fermentation from a range of feedstocks. This allows for it to decompose completely over time.
How do the bars help to conserve plastics/energy?
The bars contain a higher concentration of product. Each bar will get you more uses than your standard plastic bottled product.
1 Shampoo Bar = four 8 oz plastic bottles
1 CoWash Bar = two 16 oz jars/bottles
1 Conditioner Bar = four 8 oz plastic bottles
1 Leave-In Conditioner Bar = seven 8 oz plastic bottles
