Cocofomm shampoo powder has a lower carbon footprint than shampoo bars. Here's why:
Cold process manufacturing. Because of its powder form, we use no heat at all to produce our products. Whereas syndet shampoo bars are typically made using high heat to melt materials together. Heat/energy usage = greater carbon emissions.
Made in USA. From start to finish, we source raw materials & packaging from the U.S. We don't use air freight or ocean freight, unlike major name "eco" brands that can be shipped all the way from New Zealand.
Fewer raw materials. Additional ingredients/processes are used to melt & hold shampoo bars together, and that comes at a cost to the environment. Unlike shampoo bars which use stearic acid, cetyl alcohol, and other ingredients to hold the bar together, Cocofomm products completely eliminate the need for this. Fewer raw materials translates to lower carbon emissions from production.
