THE PRODUCTS WE USE AT MARLA HAIR
Over the last 18 months, we've worked really hard to find the very best hair products to use at our Buckhurst Hill salon. Our long term research and testing has led us to working OWAY; an amazing brand that creates solely organic and sustainable hair care products. From their brilliant Smoothing Hair Baths to their Bio-Rich Water, Sun Protective Elixir to Soothing Remedy, each one of their range is made using their proprietary ' Organic Way' using agricosmetics.
This means growing zero-mile plants, flowers and medicinal and aromatic shrubs on their estate, in the hills of Bologna. It means choosing the biodynamic method – the healthiest and cleanest, which does not require the use
of chemicals to obtain pure, ultra-effective essential oils, hydrolates and extracts that become active ingredients in OWAY treatments.
Another reason we love OWAY so much is their hair sustainability credentials, as they look to reduce
pollution caused by plastics using only 100% recyclable, infinitely reusable glass and aluminium containers
for all OW products (not waste but resources!).
Glass is 100% pure, endlessly recyclable, does not release toxic substances or contain the chemical products found in other packaging materials and preserves the integrity of our botanical formulas. OW labels are made of ecological paper, not plastic, and do not need to be removed when the product is finished.
Aluminium recycling uses an amount of energy equal to only 5% of that used for its production from scratch. Recovered aluminium, of identical quality to the original, is used in building, mechanics and household products, as well as in the packaging sector.
To minimise impact on the environment, OW opted to use only the minimum amount of packaging (all recycled, recyclable or eco-certified). For this reason their aluminium tubes and glass bottles and jars are not packaged or come in reusable birch wood boxes or paper recovered from agricultural waste.
