Yas Alpaca is a personal care product line on a mission to give you healthy, fabulous, alpaca-like hair without harming the planet and its humans along the way. Our first products are zero waste solid shampoo bars.
Why does solid matter?
Liquid shampoos are a triple danger for the ecosystem:
- They contain, on average, 80% water - yes, we also made that face when we discovered this - and because of it, transportation of liquid shampoos has a much higher CO2 footprint as opposed to solid bars, which are made entirely of concentrated shampoo formula.
- Many liquid shampoos contain plastic ingredients. These are purposefully added to increase exfoliating properties, create "gloss," and act as fillers to bulk out products. We don't do that.
- Through their ingredients and their packaging, they increase plastic waste. Each wash, microplastics filter into the water supply. Once finished, the bottles end up in landfills. Some or all of these plastics end up in our oceans, and, consequently, on our plates as microplastics. Who would want to find someone else's shampoo bottle on their plate, amirite?
Yas Alpaca shampoo bars have no plastic ingredients or packaging, give you more bang for your buck, and have a lower carbon footprint. A single bar lasts as long as one bottle of shampoo but weighs much less!
Our solid shampoos are handmade in Italy with local and organic ingredients. Committed to an ethical and fair trade supply chain, our suppliers are small family businesses or companies that carry out social projects. We believe that production should not be at the expense of people or the environment. Therefore, our production partners are committed to prices and standards that allow respect for the work, safety, and benefit of all people involved with the lowest environmental impact possible.
Yas Alpaca shampoo bars are sexy, clean, and zero waste! In other words, everything you could want. We bet you'll never want to wash your hair with anything but our alpaca-inspired shampoo bars.
