Reducing Carbon & Emissions

What can you do to minimize your environmental footprint when creating a line of private label hair products?

Give your self every competitive advantage possible. At the point of sale, small things matter. If your product and a competitive product offer similar functions, the fact that your product is more environmentally conscious can be the difference in the customer buying your version. In fact, these small differences often help people feel comfortable about paying a premium price for a product.

SLI Beauty works with a supply chain that allows you to start small while having a big impact. These are the following things that SLI Beauty does to help all of us reduce our impact on the environment. Teach your customers about the following aspects of your private label hair care product line:

Ladies & Gentlemen…Sulfates

Sulfates. A word that has created quite the buzz in the hair care industry. The word has become quite heavy for an ingredient that creates those big bubbles everyone loves to gush about. Somewhere in all those big bubbles is the truth and it’s time to wash them away and speak honestly about why they are there and what they do.

SLS, SLES, ALS, what do these all mean? To put it in layman’s terms, Surfactants. These surfactants are put into your shampoos to create the bubbles that we are all told ” clean our hair”. What they don’t tell you about sulfates is the fact that you  are drying out your hair, fading that $200.00 color service you just had done at the salon and some studies show that sulfates are damaging to the immune system. The list doesn’t stop there. Other studies show that sulfates can be damaging to the hair follicle and thus effecting hair growth. Here’s something to think about, SLS is not only in your luxurious shampoo, but your husband just washed your garage floor with it. The same sulfates found in your shampoo are the same sulfates that are used in car degreasers. Those sulfates dissolve the grease on car engines the same way it dissolves the natural oils in your hair. Now you have something to think about.

SLS knows no mercy, they will take whatever you’ve got, including the natural oils that your hair needs to remain healthy. You might now be asking yourself, ” Well if we know all this about sulfates, then why are they being used in my shampoos?”  The answer is simple. Cheap, cheap , cheap.  So what could be recommended is to start buying your shampoos by the gallon, that way you can wash your hair and your car at the same time.

While this seems like a way to cut some costs and time, there is a better way to deal with this dilemma.  There are sulfate free shampoos. SLI Beauty shampoos are completely sulfate free. We don’t think you should have to wash your hair with the same ingredients the car is washed with.

There are many alternative surfactants. One of the more popular being Cocamidopropyl Betaine, this surfactant is derived from coconut oil. Another popular surfactant is Decyl Glucoside which is harvested from corn, potato and wheat. There is a gentler way to wash.

Now is the time to re-educate. While you are not going to have the same big bubbles that you get with sulfates, you can rest assured that you are safe and looking after the health of your hair, as well as, your overall health.

When using a sulfate free shampoo it is recommended to start with a dime sized amount of shampoo and do a light pre-wash followed by a regular shampoo. This will help with creating a lather, which until the mass population understands that the amount of bubbles isn’t what is making their hair clean it might help them feel at ease.

SLI Beauty has a well rounded selection of shampoos that will meet the needs of all hair types. Now SLI Beauty is taking a step further with our Essential Infusions. Contact SLI Beauty to find out more about our shampoos and how you can customize an entire private label line.

” Put your salon’s name on the most natural and organic private label products possible.”

A Take Care Hair Affair

In the salon industry there are so many different product lines that flood the market. Right now the industry is facing a major crisis in retail. Many of the top nation brands are showing up in super markets and drugstores.  The term ” Sold only in professional salons” is becoming more and more obsolete.

There is an answer to the call of salon owners and their salons. Private label. This is a solution that helps salons and their owners in more than one way. First and foremost, it is an exclusive line and will not turn up in super markets or drugstores. Private label also helps salon owners market their brand in an effective, but also creative way. It creates excitement again amongst the jaded salon owners.

Looking into private label can sometimes be overwhelming. The salon owner is now in charge of selecting a company they trust, selecting products for their line, fragrance, packaging, and the list goes on. Asking what is important to you and your salon is going to make answering these questions easier.

SLI Beauty creates organic/natural sulfate free, paraben free professional hair care products. Many of our clients not only stand behind what our products represent, but also like that we are completely confidential and do not disclose who our clients are. This keeps the traditional meaning of private label intact.

Products are created from the highest quality ingredients. Using essential oils and tinctures to enhance the benefits of the products separates SLI Beauty from our competition. Also, the fact that SLI is a completely customizable solution. You get to pick your packaging, fragrance, closures, design,etc.  SLI Beauty does not keep products sitting on our shelves. All of our clients orders are “made to order”. That way you know every products is made fresh.

Having a project manager assigned to your product line ensures that all of your needs are being met and questions are being answered. If that isn’t enough, our senior chemists are on hand to answer any questions or help you through any formulations, because we also offer research and development for our clients. If you have a product you love, send us a sample and we will reformulate it so that it becomes a part of your product line.

We also offer marketing solutions to help our clients market their lines to its fullest potential. Making sure that you are armed with all the necessary education and tools is how SLI Beauty manages the product lines it partners with you to create.
