Use Me Products was created to right the many wrongs in the the beauty industry. One of our biggest concerns was creating a brand that could be synonymous with healthy living, sustainability, and eco-consciousness. As a consumer, it is difficult to discern the most environmentally friendly brands because the definition of eco-consciousness varies from person to person. I recently read a blog post that listed the top ten environmentally friendly celebrities, one of whom his only claim to eco-consciousness was buying a prius… There are many companies that claim to be eco-friendly, yet often fail to encompass the big picture by only focusing by a few small pieces of the puzzle. With Use Me, we did our best to examine every aspect of our brand, from ingredients to production, in order to create the most comprehensively eco-conscious products available. This way, our customers can be confident that by choosing Use Me they are making the best decision for themselves and the planet.
5 Reasons Why Use Me Products Is The Most Eco-Conscious Professional Hair Care Brand Available:
1. The Patented Use Me Filling Station
One of the most exciting and eco-conscious aspects of the Use Me brand is our patented filling station. This 100% recycled and reclaimed fixture allows customers to refill their BPA-free cleanser and moisturizer bottles in the salon. Recycling is great, but this feature almost entirely eliminates post consumer waste by allowing Use Me patrons to use one bottle for years!
2. Sulfate-, Paraben-, BPA-Free
To the educated consumer, picking between hair care brands feels like picking between poisons. This is not the case with Use Me products. Sulfates, parabens, and BPA are all chemicals that have been receiving very negative views. Scientists have uncovered that these three are a menace in the beauty industry and are often the culprit behind many acute physical symptoms such as dry scalp, itchy eyes, and swollen hands as well as serious chronic conditions as a result of their ability to mimic certain hormones in the body and even cancer. Not only that, but these chemicals often find their way into our local ecosystems waterways, where they wreak havoc on the wildlife. By excluding all of these chemicals, we have taken a huge step in improving the health of our patrons as well as improving the earth.
3. Made In the USA
Besides the obvious economic benefits of making our products in the US, there are many environmental benefits that often go unnoticed. People fail to realize the immense carbon footprint that all foreign products produce. Not only are many of these products produced in facilities with lower quality standards, but shipping them to the US is a very costly venture. Studies show that global merchant fleets carbon emissions are somewhere around 1.12 billion tonnes (1tonne = 1000 kilograms)!
4. Vegan, Organic Ingredients
Our products are as organic and natural as they can be while still maintaining professional functionality. By selecting only the finest and most necessary ingredients for our products, we not only protect our customers from unhealthy, over-processed substances, but also support eco-conscious, sustainable practices.
5. 1% for the Planet Member
