At MASAMI, each hair care product begins with Mekabu, an ocean botanical from the seas of northeastern Japan. It’s known to locals for its health-giving properties. This, combined with other natural ingredients, led to the creation of a complete hair care line that botanically hydrates hair without weighing it down. After establishing a product that fights the stigma that haircare products are full of chemicals, MASAMI looked to its packaging and manufacturing processes. “We believe that when we take from the Earth, we should replenish it,” says Lynn Power, MASAMI Co-Founder & CEO. This means sustainability is a key value within the company and IMPACT COLLECTIVE is the perfect partner to imbue balance into their business. With the mission to improve package sustainability, MASAMI is working with IMPACT to become both plastic neutral and carbon neutral!
