Clean beauty refill pouches

Refill Pouches Lighten Our Load

Innersense Organic Beauty is lightening up: Our new 32oz/946ml refill pouches are here and use 70% less plastic than our 32oz/946ml bottles and 75% less plastic than (3) 10oz/295ml bottles. These pouches allow you to reuse and refill your favorite Innersense Organic Beauty hairbaths and conditioners, right at home, extending the lifecycle of your favorite clean hair care bottles. Why refill pouches? We answer your questions below.

HOW MANY BOTTLES CAN I REFILL WITH ONE POUCH?

Up to four! Our refill pouches will fill (3) 10oz/295ml bottles plus (1) 2oz travel size bottle or (1) 32oz/946ml bottle. 

WHICH PRODUCTS COME IN REFILL POUCHES?

All of our hairbaths and conditioners come in 32oz/946ml refill pouches. (Note: Refresh Dry Shampoo is not available in refill pouches at this time.)

WHY REFILL POUCHES INSTEAD OF BUYING MORE PLASTIC BOTTLES?

Plastic pouches require less material than rigid containers. That means less waste, less water used during manufacturing and significantly lower emissions. Pouches also take up far less space than rigid containers. They’re also lightweight, protect our clean hair care products without the need for excess packing materials and are damage resistant, making transportation more energy efficient and climate friendly.

WHY AREN’T YOUR PLASTIC BOTTLES, OR YOUR REFILLS, OFFERED IN GLASS?

Currently, two products are packaged in glass: Harmonic Treatment Oil (called Harmonic Healing Oil in the United States) and I Create Waves Salt Spray. We choose to avoid glass in many of our products as it can pose a danger in a wet bathroom environment where breakage can occur. Broken glass in the shower is hazardous both for you and the environment! Still, there’s a little more to the glass dilemma. While glass has the perception of being more recyclable than plastic, only about 30% of glass in the United States (where we are headquartered) is actually recycled. Additionally, glass packaging has a higher carbon footprint due to the energy-heavy manufacturing process and the heavier weight by volume compared to plastic.

SHOULD I RINSE MY BOTTLES WITH WATER BEFORE REFILLING?

No! There’s no need. Water can create unnecessary contamination; when your product gets low, simply refill the bottle using your refill pouch.

HOW DO I REFILL MY BOTTLE WITH A POUCH?

Just remove the cap or pump from your bottle, then insert the spout of the pouch inside the neck of the bottle you wish to refill. Next pour (or squeeze) slowly until the bottle is full. We advise not “mixing” products. In other words, refill your hairbath and conditioner bottles with the same shampoo or conditioner type that came in them originally.

HOW DO I STORE MY REFILL POUCHES?

Store your refill pouches upright to avoid leakage. The flexible packaging means they store easily under the sink or in a cabinet or closet. We advise storing your pouches away from extreme temperatures, too.

CAN I STILL PURCHASE YOUR TRADITIONAL 32OZ/946ML BOTTLES?

Yes! We will continue manufacturing 32oz/946ml sizes. Our professional community is particularly fond of the 100% recycled plastic bottles at their backbars!

Extending The Life Cycle, Expanding Our Climate Neutrality

Our new pouches extend the lifecycle of our plastic bottles while minimizing our carbon footprint. As we officially reached “climate neutral” certification in July 2021, know that you are an important part of our efforts. For every bottle you purchase, we remove one from the environment. And for every refill you purchase, you’re essentially removing 3 bottles from the future plastic cycle!
