Supporting 1% for the planet
alott – a little off the top – is haircare with the emphasis on care: premium products, handmade with 100% natural ingredients. They are passionate about creating products that are not only good for your hair but are also good for our planet. allot are taking steps to help minimise their impact on the environment by using recyclable packaging, refillable aluminium bottles and as little plastic as possible. we’re also members of 1% for the Planet.
A million plastic bottles are purchased across the world every minute of the day, and 90% of those plastic bottles aren’t even recycled. They end up in landfills and take around 1000 years to biodegrade. alott want to help eliminate plastic bottles. our aim is to reduce packaging in the first place, then re-use it, before finally recycling it.
To help in the effort to reduce single-use plastic, allot's products come in aluminium packaging. They don’t degrade as quickly so can be safely reused until the time comes to recycle them. They want to encourage people to keep their original aluminium bottle, wash it out and then refill it.
Aluminium is not perfect, but it is better than plastic. An aluminium bottle can be recycled without losing any of its quality in the process. This means that almost 75% of all the aluminium ever produced to date is still in use today (compared to only 9% of all plastics ever made).
alott products are made using carefully selected natural ingredients. we use only safe, clean, naturally-derived ingredients and avoid all irritating and harmful conventional chemicals, such as GM ingredients, parabens, SLS, silicones & mineral oils, artificial colours or fragrance and palm oil. all our products are vegan.
all our products are handmade in small batches in wales. this hands-on approach to the ingredient sourcing and formulations allows us to create natural, vegan products that really work.
we do not test on animals. our products are completely free of any animal and animal-derived ingredients and comply with all cosmetic safety regulations.
as well as trying to minimize any negative impact we make, we’re also committing 1% of our sales to the organisation 1% for the Planet. they use donations from businesses all over the world to help take care of our planet – from planting trees, banning plastic, protecting wildlife to fighting climate change. since a common ingredient in our products is anglesey’s halen môn sea salt, and we’re committed to reducing single-use plastic, our donations are going towards reducing ocean plastic around the uk coastline.
