But creating a quick and effective product that really rinses out in seconds!

When developing our Hair Care solution, it was essential to limit our water waste by having it rinse quickly and using plant-based ingredients, and making sure that water is not the key ingredient. 

This allows you to use less product on your hair, making your bottles last longer and helping with water waste.

When I grew up in Australia, with months, sometimes years, of no rain, I remember the government issuing every household an egg timer to restrict the water used.

Among many limitations, you were allowed only three minutes to shower. 

That’s why I created a Hair Care line that reduces water waste by rinsing out in seconds.” - Jill Turnbull, Founder.
