HiBAR was founded to revolutionize packaging in the beauty industry, and their plant-based ingredients are certified all-natural.
Why we love it
If four-in-one shampoo, conditioner, soap, and laundry detergent is the enemy of happy hair, this fortifying conditioner is its best friend. Cheerfully colored with all-natural pigments on top of being vegan and never tested on animals, it’s got coconut oil and cocoa seed butter for nourishment and rice protein for extra-uplifting hydration. We’re pretty sure it’s our best friend too.
How it does good
Making over the beauty industry for the better
Since plastic packaging came to prominence, we’ve made, used, and disposed of more than 8.3 billion tons of the stuff. Over 90 percent has gone unrecycled, often ending up in landfills, oceans, and animals’ bellies. One of the main culprits? The beauty industry. And then HiBAR came along. Developed by 4 friends with a passion for great smells, healthy hair, and, most importantly, plastic-free products, they've cut out plastic packaging entirely, modelling their haircare products on the bars of soap we’ve been using for years. Also free from sulfates, parabens, and silicones, and packed instead with plant-based ingredients, HiBAR is committed to leading by example with salon-quality, eco-friendly products, made with the earth in mind.
recyclable packagingInstead of plastic, HiBAR’s shampoos and conditioners arrive in packaging that’s adorable and, even better, totally recyclable. It’s made with plant-based ink, so you can even compost it. They’ve also put thought into shipping and wholesale, with biodegradable, compostable, or recyclable packing and pallets, right down to tape and packing peanuts.
responsible sourcingYou’ll never find synthetic preservatives in HiBAR’s products. Instead, they use plant-based, often totally vegan, ingredients, with all-natural essential oils for scent. Their pigments are approved by Cosmos and Ecocert, the gold standard in natural cosmetics.
supporting key causesThey’ve donated shampoos to victims of natural disasters, like the 2020 Oregon fires, and they’re financially supporting small businesses and social justice reform in Minnesota.
