of the product in a salon or shower?
No worries. We are actually using similar plastics to what we’ve always used and these bottles will have the exact same shelf life as you would expect from any hair care product. However, we have engineered the use of a special additive to the plastic, which attracts microbes in landfills to actually eat and digest the plastic. Since these microbes don’t exist in a salon environment, at least we hope they don’t, the breakdown of the bottles doesn’t begin until they’re placed in a landfill. Furthermore, the bottles don’t just breakdown. Because they are being consumed and digested by these microbes, the bi-product of this microbial digestion is methanol gas. This gas can be trapped at the landfill and converted to energy and sent to the power grid.
Absolutely. We are very conscious of the need to responsibly harvest all ingredients. In fact, Pravana and our partners in Brazil have purchased land that was previously deforested and stripped of all vegetation and we have successfully planted 25,000 endangered trees on this land in an effort to replenish this area.
Yes. We made a conscious decision early on when we decided to take personal care to a new level, that these products would need to be state of the art in both their performance and in their safety for people and the planet. In addition to being totally vegan, all products are sulfate-free, free of phthalates, cocamide DEA and MEA, parabens, propylene glycol, and glutens.
Not a problem. These bottles, in addition to being 100% biodegradable, are fully recyclable. If these bottles get recycled and get repurposed as a park bench or railroad tie, at the end of their life, when it finely ends up in a landfill, it will then begin to biodegrade.
Artificial Hair color actually introduces free radicals to the hair, which can actually work to break down color and degrade the integrity of the hair. By adding the drops of the Amazon from just one hydra pearl can help mitigate these free radicals while adding shine and moisture.
can you use them on skin?
Absolutely! Hydra Pearls contain not only hyper-antioxidants to eliminate free radicals but also contain both emulsive and occlusive moisturizers, which serve to both impart and seal in vital moisture to both skin and care. Hydra Pearls can be applied to areas of the face at night and it’s a perfect overnight skin rejuvenator.
