Ditch the plastic and support zero-waste haircare with locally made Honua Bars
An eco-minded surfer has crafted a quirky response to the huge waste of plastic in haircare by launching a snappy line of waste-free shampoo and conditioner bars.
Banish any preconceptions of hard shampoo and let the cute and colourful pineapples from Honua Bars speak for themselves. Boasting oodles of nourishing and sustainably sourced ingredients, without any of the typical nasties, these cruelty free shampoo and conditioner bars will save up to six plastic bottles and completely revolutionise your haircare routine. All packaging is biodegradable, meaning you can simply store your bar on a drainage plate, lather up when it’s time to wash your locks and throw it in a sisal fibre bag when you’re on the road.
A divine concoction of ingredients such as moisturising cacao butter, shine-boosting panthenol (provitamin B5) and refreshing essential oils make for some epic little ergonomic shower mates. Every bar is also free from sulfates, parabens and phthalates, and PH balanced so it’s gentle on both your hair and skin. The Honua Bars launch range includes Mint Chocolate with peppermint essential oil and rhassoul clay, Liliko’i & Hibiscus Star Fruit with Australian white clay, Lemongrass & Lemon Myrtle with essential oils and Citrus Paradise coloured with annatto seed – plus a limited-edition vanilla chai latte shampoo. Formulated and created on the Gold Coast by founder Sophie Thwaites, Honua Bars provides a cost-effective and safe alternative to the standard plastic bottle shampoo route.
