Problem we are solving
Shampoos damage ocean life. Water processing does not remove these compounds.

Surfactants are mostly petroleum-based and not sustainable.

Sustainable Impact on Blue Ecconomy
The bio-surfactant we are working on is circular, sustainable and ocean-safe. Combined with other equally sustainable and ocean-safe ingredients, we will have the world’s first circular ocean-safe shampoo.
