Sustainable Salon Practices: Compressed Technology

With climate change at the centre of public attention (and ours!) we are working harder than ever to make sure that we use every innovation as an opportunity to improve our environmental impact.

 

We have a responsibility to ensure that Schwarzkopf Professional products are as sustainable as we can make them, and that we are always taking steps towards our sustainability goals; reducing the carbon footprint of our production activities and helping you to reduce yours, both in the salon and at home.

 

That’s where technologies, such as ‘compression’ within our hairsprays comes in!

 

 

Sustainable Salon Practices: Compressed Technology

 

OSiS+ Keep It Light hairspray is the latest product to be developed with Compressed Technology, joining OSiS+ Session Label’s SUPER DRY Memory Net hairspray.

 

With a sustainable vision and consideration for the environment OSiS+ Keep It Light has been developed with a highly concentrated* formula that achieves the desired result with a lower amount of active formula and propellant per usage. It's also super-efficient, lasting nearly twice as long** as a conventional hairspray, but priced in line with other hairsprays from the range – benefiting our planet, your salon AND customers.

 

Sustainability in Production

 

Sustainability in Production

The concentrated formulas in Compressed Technology products also improve sustainability by allowing us to reduce the physical product size, meaning less aluminium is needed for production. Because of this, less vehicles are needed to transport them – fewer vehicles, fewer emissions! Equally, while the hairspray cans are usually widely recyclable, their smaller size also reduces waste once the product has been used.

Sustainability in Your Salon

What does this mean for you? More product, less waste, same price. In fact, you’ll be saving your salon money – the concentrated formulas will reduce the frequency of re-stocking, as well as taking up less room!
