    SE 09 EP 14: Embracing Sustainability in Hair Care

    We have spoken about beauty A LOT this season and I thought it was about time that we discussed hair too.   In the United Kingdom, only half of our bathroom waste is recycled, leading to an alarming amount of packaging, including shampoo bottles and styling products, ending up in landfills. The beauty industry has responded to this environmental challenge by introducing sustainable hair care brands that focus on minimising both product and packaging impact before reaching consumers' bathrooms. Remarkably, these brands manage to maintain high-quality hair care standards while championing eco-friendly practices.

    Dina Rosenbloom, is CMO of Hairstory
    Adam Reed, Hair stylist & founder of ARKIVE Headcare 
    Show notes:
    Green Salon Collective
    B Corp Certification
    Green Circle Salons

    SE 09 EP 13: Has The Beauty Industry Failed The Disabled Community?

    Did you know that 1 in 5 adults has a disability?
    The beauty industry has long been a global trendsetter, influencing beauty standards and societal norms. However, amidst the glittering world of cosmetics, there lies a question that demands attention: Has the beauty industry failed the disabled community?
    Today’s guest is Diane Cheung - the founder behind MELIOR, a remarkable social enterprise based in East London. Meaning 'better' in Latin, MELIOR's mission is nothing short of inspiring. They are tirelessly tackling social injustices by creating hundreds of hours of meaningful employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities, through vegan, refillable cleaning and beauty products that perfectly combine brains, beauty expertise and style. All profits from MELIOR are reinvested to employ people with disabilities and long term health conditions.

    SE 09 EP 11 Discussing The Interconnection of Wellness and Sustainability

    Wellness is not just about what we consume but also how much. The principles of mindfulness can be applied to consumption patterns, promoting a more sustainable lifestyle. Being mindful of our choices, whether in terms of food, clothing, or other products, can lead to reduced waste and a lighter ecological footprint.
    The next chapter of wellness will be mind-body beauty, where mental well-being and physical appearance are interconnected. This new chapter involves embracing stress relief techniques, healing practices, targeted supplements, and revamped daily routines to elevate the concept of beauty to a higher level in Beauty is evolving to include wellness practices.
    Today's Guests:
    Dr Thivi Maruthappu is the UK's only dual qualified Dermatologist and Nutritionist so could chat about a variety of topics within that space and recently launched her book Skin Food: Your 4 Step Solution to Healthy Happy Skin.

    SE 09 EP 10: Flowing Green? Revolutionising Zero Waste Periods

    SE 09 EP 10: Flowing Green? Revolutionising Zero Waste Periods

    In our quest for eco-friendly living, one often-overlooked arena is feminine hygiene. Did you know that globally, it is estimated that over 45 billion menstrual products are disposed of every year? That's an astronomical amount of waste, with traditional products contributing significantly to landfills. Look at the statistics from various corners of the world, the magnitude of the issue becomes clear – a staggering environmental toll that demands our attention.  But it's not just about the problem; it's also about the solution. Join us as we explore the pressing need for truly biodegradable options in feminine hygiene. We'll unpack why the status quo is no longer acceptable and how a shift towards sustainable, zero-waste alternatives is not just a choice but a responsibility. The time has come for a conversation that goes beyond our beauty routines and touches on the global impact of our choices.
    Our guest today is Dr Olivia Anh co-founder of FLUUS who launched the world’s first fully flushable, zero waste period pad at the beginning of the 2023; and have just successfully built the the first high-speed, microplastic free production line in the world (to make truly microplastic free pads accessible to more people).

    SE 09 EP 09: Celebrating the Evolution of Diversity and Inclusivity of Beauty

    SE 09 EP 09: Celebrating the Evolution of Diversity and Inclusivity of Beauty

    In the ever-evolving landscape of beauty, 2024 is poised to be a year of transformative change, marked by a commitment to celebrate diversity and redefine industry standards. The beauty industry has long been critiqued for its lack of inclusivity, both in terms of product offerings and marketing campaigns. However, the tide is turning, and beauty brands are recognising the power of diversity in shaping a more inclusive and representative beauty narrative. Today we discuss the historical lack of inclusivity in the beauty industry and the rise of beauty founders embracing diversity.
