"I believe there has to be a
way to care for our hair"
- Lynn Tan, Founder
Q:What was your inspiration for The Powder Shampoo?
A:The inspiration for The Powder Shampoo come to me the moment I learnt that Greenhouse Gas Emissions will increase to 49 metric tons by 2030 and will double by 2050, eroding the place we call home. At this rate, the sad reality is that my grandchildren would not have Mother Earth to call home.
This fact shock me to core. I took time to do some soul searching to reflect on my business ethos and how in the grand scheme of things, a lot of old practices did not make sense. From there, I set out on a mission with a vision to change the way we shampoo.
I believe there has to be a better, smarter and more sustainable way for us to care for our hair. I had the vision to create something that retains the cleaning power of a foaming shampoo yet is also pleasurable, vegan
toxin-free. Most importantly, how could I make it without using plastic packaging?
