What makes KIND2 shampoo and conditioner sustainable?

By now, you’ve probably heard how eco friendly shampoo bars are. So, what is it that makes KIND2 solid shampoo bars and conditioner bars especially sustainable?

If you’ve cleared the first hurdle and are open to switching to solid shampoo, good going! The next question is: how do you choose the right bar?

A good solid shampoo has to tick a lot of boxes. Depending on your personal principles, you might need it to be vegan, zero waste, locally made etc.

Then, of course, it has to effectively clean and nourish your hair. If you’re an eco warrior with a dry or sensitive scalp, this can really narrow your options.

Sustainability is at the heart of KIND2

Ok, we might be a little biased... but KIND2’s solid shampoo bars and conditioner bars really do have the high performance and the high sustainable standards that can prove elusive.

Exasperation with plastic pollution is actually what started the brand. Seeing litter on the beach inspired us to create an excellent, plastic free alternative to bottled shampoo and conditioner. So, sustainability at the heart of everything we do.

What makes KIND2 so sustainable?

Because we care about the planet, we’ve covered all bases when it comes to making KIND2 solid shampoo bars and solid conditioner bars sustainable. Here are our eco action steps: 

KIND2 uses sustainable, plastic free packaging
All our products and our delivery packaging is 100% plastic free and either compostable or recyclable. Yes, that also goes for the tape on our delivery boxes, which are made from recycled cardboard. What’s more, we source all our packaging materials from the UK to keep our carbon footprint as low as possible. 
Our solid shampoos and conditioners are made from natural ingredients
It’s not only reducing plastic that we care about. The purity of our products is high on our list of sustainable priorities too, so all our ingredients are natural, or naturally derived. Accordingly, we don’t use any synthetic colours or fragrances and every ingredient in our bars is there to perform its own powerful, natural function.
All KIND2 products are vegan and cruelty free
Is animal welfare, or not contributing to the carbon footprint of animal agriculture, a non-negotiable principle for you? We’ve got you covered. All our products are vegan and cruelty free. 
There’s no water in our concentrated shampoo and conditioner bars
KIND2 solid shampoo bars and solid conditioner bars are concentrated. In fact, they contain no water whatsoever. This makes them last at least twice as long as liquid shampoos, which is equivalent to saving 2 plastic bottles from being created. Sceptical? You might be swayed when you learn how much water is actually in bottled shampoo. The concentrated nature of our bars also means that producing them does not require excessive and unnecessary transportation of water. This conserves energy, water and your money!
We keep our carbon footprint light
Our plastic free shampoo and conditioner bars are all manufactured in the UK. This means no overseas miles between them, their packaging and our UK-based customers. And the KIND2 HQ runs on renewable energy! We deliver through Royal Mail because it has an existing infrastructure.

KIND2’s sustainable shampoo bars really work

Hopefully we’ve convinced you that KIND2’s plastic free shampoo and conditioner bars are truly sustainable.
