Yao Secret Celebrates Earth Day: Small Steps, Big Impact

April 30, 2024 2 min read


Happy Earth Day from Yao Secret! Here at Yao Secret, sustainability isn't just a trend – it's the very foundation of our brand. Since day one, we've been passionate about creating haircare that nourishes your locks while honoring the planet.

We believe in taking responsibility for what we take from society and the environment, and that's why we're committed to giving back. We started small, ensuring our shampoo and conditioner bars offered the best possible experience. But we never stopped dreaming bigger, and today, we're excited to share our ongoing efforts to minimize our environmental impact.

From Humble Beginnings to Big Strides

Remember those amazing Rice Water Shampoo Bars we brought to the world? Initially, we used waxed paper to preserve their freshness during their journey from the Longji mountains to your doorstep. Fast forward to today, we've embraced a more sustainable solution – biodegradable paper wrapping! This seemingly small change has saved an estimated 5,000 pieces of A4-sized cling film – that's a big win for the planet! We're also proud to offer polylactic acid (PLA) foaming nets instead of plastic ones. These innovative nets are made entirely from plant extracts, making them a truly renewable resource.

Sustainable Formulas for Happy Hair and a Healthy Planet

We understand that harsh chemicals don't just damage your hair, they can also harm our precious water sources and ecosystems. That's why we're committed to developing formulas free from harmful silicones, sulfates, parabens, and phthalates. And it doesn't stop there! We're constantly working to refine our formulas, ensuring they deliver the same incredible results as the Red Yao women's time-tested fermented rice water.

Sustainability Goes Beyond the Bottle!

At Yao Secret, we believe sustainability also means creating products built to last. That's why we take pride in our beautifully crafted Vera Wood combs and hair pins. These luxurious accessories are gentle on your hair and designed to be cherished for years to come. We started with combs, then added hair pins, and now we're excited to introduce our newest addition – the Gua Sha Comb!

Celebrating Earth Day's Mission

This year's Earth Day theme is "Planet vs. Plastics," with a focus on eliminating plastic use for the sake of our planet and our health. We're thrilled that our values align perfectly with this mission! Not only are our products plastic-free, but by choosing our bars, you're also helping to eliminate plastic bottles from ending up in landfills. In fact, with over 30,000 bars sold, that translates to an estimated 60,000 plastic bottles saved – a collective achievement we celebrate with you!

Thank You for Being a Part of the Journey!

We know that breaking away from convenience and established habits can be challenging. But every single effort, big or small, makes a difference. We're dedicated to being a sustainable business in all aspects, and we're always looking for ways to improve. Thank you for supporting us on this journey! We'd love to hear your thoughts and suggestions – together, we can make a positive impact on the planet, one beautiful head of hair at a time.
Cheers to a Happy Earth Day!
