    the unwash review

    Get ready for a new staple in your bathroom. This zero-waste hair care brand has created bars suited for every hair type and need. Dip is on a mission to convert big brand hair care lovers to a more sustainable option that doesn’t skimp on quality. The founder of Dip, Kate Assaraf has checked all the boxes. Dip ensures their production process and ingredients are not only top-tier quality but are good for both you and the environment. The brand has partnered with other small businesses rather than sourcing out to big box retailers, Dip has both people and the planet in mind.

    “If you listen to what young people have to say, they don’t want to support big-box retailers that don’t pay their employees well. They don’t want to support greenwashing. They want somebody to listen to them and stand for something.” – Kate Assaraf, Dip Founder

    Assaraf spent hundreds of dollars on luxury haircare for her personal routine leading her to realize you don’t need to be creating this much waste or spending exponential amounts of money for a quality product. Dip has a range of 35 color-safe shampoo and conditioner bars in a wide range of scents and travel tins. Whatever your hair care needs are, Dip has you covered.

    Dip understands the reality that living a sustainable lifestyle means something different for everyone but that making small changes can make a huge impact which is what the brand aims to do. Whether you’re looking for an everyday zero-waste staple or the perfect travel haircare, Dip is an ideal product swap.

    Ries

    Ries is a line of TSA-size approved refillable containers retailing at $18. The bottles are crafted from post-consumer recycled plastic and created with the purpose of consistent reuse. Graham saw the plastic problem in the beauty industry and wanted to innovate how we reuse plastics. Being a new brand, this is just the beginning for Ries. The brand continues to test different materials for use to be as conscious of its sustainability as possible. Ries puts value on the circularity of their product and hopes choices like using up-cycled materials will become more of a norm in the beauty industry.

    Everist

    Everist gives you a traditional shampoo and conditioner feel without additional waste. These concentrates are revolutionizing a notably wasteful industry and are a force for positive change. Everist uses ingredients that naturally break down over time and do not pollute water systems. Their shipping cartons and mailers are recyclable or compostable, and they offer a buyback program for the cap of the product to be upcycled for future Everist products.

    Fussy

    This popular deodorant is one that won’t leave you fussing. The outer container is sugarcane-derived, which is easy to throw in the compost once you need a new outer shell. Refills are obtained easily through their subscription service on a four-week basis.  All you have to do is pick the color of your case and the scent of your refill, which are cruelty and paraben free. Fussy was named the UK’s best eco-deodorant, and we can easily see why this product always sells out.
