What Makes Desert Shadow Shine?
- Organic Integrity: As the only 100% certified organic hair colour brand in Australia, their products are free from harmful toxins commonly found in conventional hair colours.
- Eco-Conscious materials: They adopt a strong recycling ethos, using 100% post-consumer recycled material for paper packaging, bio-degradable solutions for their hair color pouches, and recyclable shampoo and conditioner bottles
- Ethical Ingredient Selection: They proudly claim a palm oil-free status and have recently launched a shampoo & conditioner range, ‘Habitat’, supporting this cause. In addition, their soaps transform waste olive oil from farms into palm oil-free products.
- Reduced Carbon Footprint: Their workspace is designed to maximize natural light, reducing reliance on artificial lighting. They’ve adopted LED solutions and encourage natural light to flow into their warehouse.
- Community Engagement: Founders Charmaine and Tomas are active within their community, attending local clean-ups and advocating for various environmental causes. The team’s involvement in community events reinforces their commitment to a sustainable lifestyle.
- Certifications & Alliances: Beyond being certified organic with NASAA & USDA, Desert Shadow is in the process of obtaining Palm Oil Free Certification, B Corp Certification, and joining the 1% for the planet initiative.
