Company & Product

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.

When Cocofomm shampoo powder is exposed to moisture, it forms smaller granules. This doesn't affect its performance on hair. Cocofomm will make your hair soft and shiny all the same.

By zero-waste, we mean that we strive to create products that readily biodegrade or compost, and therefore generates 'zero waste' for our landfills or oceans. And in the process, we strive to be low-waste and lower our carbon footprint by recycling whenever we can, reusing & upcycling whenever we can, and sourcing raw materials made in the USA.

Are we as a company actually, 100% zero-waste? Technically, no business or individual is. Truthfully, 'going zero-waste' is an aspirational concept. It creates a vision for us to strive towards.

"Zero waste" isn't a set of rigid constraints, nor does it emphasize perfection. Being zero waste means eliminating waste when we can and finding ways to embrace a circular economy.

The question shouldn't be whether zero waste is possible, but whether we can change our lifestyle to effectively reduce waste. [1]

Made in USA, baby! All materials are sourced from the USA, manufactured and shipped from New York City.

In a small container. A spice jar (without the sifter) would work.

Absolutely! We skip the aggressive ingredients and use only gentle ones that don't strip hair of oil/color.


No. Our formula is 100% readily biodegradable, but it's safest for aquatic life to use it several feet from a body of water. That's because the oil-stripping nature of our cleanser, isn't great for the fish! Our formula needs soil/earth to begin decomposing (by interacting with bacteria present in nature).
