We have long acknowledged the significant stress the beauty industry burdens our environment with by contributing to the 90% of non-biodegradable landfill waste, which is comprised largely of plastic bottles from beauty products like shampoos and conditioners and other products like water and soda.
But today, Organic Salon Systems is pleased to announce that they have decided to do something about it! Organic Salon Systems is proud to introduce the innovative new O’right line to the professional beauty industry. O’right is manufactured in Taiwan with only the purest natural and organic ingredients. Their facility was the first GMP certified “Green Factory” in Taiwan under the guides of a solid environmental mission, which fits perfectly with Organic Salon Systems ethos. This is certainly exemplified with the revolutionary “Tree in a Bottle” range of products that are packaged in an organic plastic bottle which, when planted in the ground after use, will grow a tree! These internationally patented shampoo bottles biodegrade into a high-nutrient fertilizer, which nurtures seeds that are in the bottle and will grow a tree.
“We welcome Organic Salon Systems in joining us to become a socially responsible business with the goal of reducing carbon emissions and creating a more sustainable world for our future generations”, said Steven Ko, O’right’s chief executive officer.
O’right offers a comprehensive salon wet-line that encompasses all hair care and styling needs. It has everything from shampoos and conditioners to specialized treatments and tonics. While most of the line was designed for unisex use, there are specific ranges tailored to children, men and women. One key features of the O’right line is the eight botanical blends that are used to treat a variety of common hair needs. Since O’right is a professional line, it comes in a myriad of sizes from backbar to retail. There is also a big focus on refills for both salons and their clientele because of O’right’s eco-friendly ethos demonstrated by their 10 Liter backbar sizes and more economical and environmentally friendly refillable retail packages.
Scott Mitchell, Organic Salon Systems chief executive officer, said “The substantial burden that the waste of the beauty industry has on our eco-system is one that environmentally responsible salon professionals can no longer ignore. Today’s affluent salon client acutely understands the culpability of their salons for the ongoing pollution of our planet and they continue to reward the more environmentally responsible salons with their loyalty and support. It is this trend that makes the introduction of the undisputed most eco-friendly hair care product line in the world so important to our salon’s business as well as our environment. We have fundamentally heightened the concept of recycling. Soon, salon clients will not be checking if your bottles are made with recycled plastics, but rather if your bottles grow their own trees!”
Ethos, Manufacturing and Certifications
At the core of their own corporate mission statement Organic Salon Systems vows to only distribute salon products that maximize the use of natural ingredients while minimizing the need for harsh or toxic chemicals. The O’right product line is completely aligned to this mission at all levels. O’right is committed to being a forward thinking, eco-friendly company by reducing their carbon emissions, using certified organic ingredients, printing with soy ink on their packaging and utilizing recycled materials wherever possible. Recently O’right became the first manufacturing facility in Taiwan to be GMP certified as a “Green Factory”. This factory uses wind, solar and recycled water to make their manufacturing practices sustainable. O’right also uses Certified Organic Ingredients in their products and their product packaging has been certified as non-toxic by both SGS and RoHS. Organic Salon Systems is proud to be partnering with a company that provides a fundamental “green” example to the professional beauty industry.
Tree in a Bottle
Taking their “green” ethos to another level O’right conceived, patented and is now producing the one-of-a-kind “Tree in a Bottle” packaging. The bottle is made from a 100% certified biodegradable plastic that comes preloaded with seeds. Once the hair care product has been used then the bottle itself can be planted into the ground. As the bottle breaks down the organic plastic becomes the fertilizer that nourishes the seeds that will grow a tree! This is the world’s only beauty product that from manufacturing to disposal will yield a negative carbon footprint. Organic Salon Systems believes that the “Tree in a Bottle” products from O’right will capture the support of salons and consumers in the United States and Canada.
The O’right line provides hair care and styling products that can meet all the needs of a professional salon. Aside from the normal lineup of shampoos and conditioners, they also have special creams, tonics, treatments and even a range of body washes and lotions. One of the unique lines from O’right allows stylists to assess the state of their client’s hair and formulate a special deep conditioning treatment for them from a range of intermixable essential oils. These same essential oil blends form the basis of the botanical ranges in which the products are grouped. Each botanical range is designed for a certain type of hair or condition.
