THE WHAT? Kao USA is debuting a sustainable personal care line today, on Earth Day. The Japanese manufacturer’s MyKirei by Kao is described as a comprehensive collection of products founded on the credence that caring for ourselves, our society and the world around us makes life more beautiful.
THE DETAILS The range comprises a shampoo, conditioner and hand wash and will be available to buy via Amazon.
The products boast vegan-friendly, plant-based formulas that are 95 percent biodegradable and contained in a ‘game-changing’ package that uses up to 50 percent less plastic and gains its rigidity through air fill with a design aimed at minimising waste. Both package and pump can be recycled via Terracycle.
