Even the most stylish salon chairs can be marred with a build-up of hairspray, denying owners an opportunity to create the best first-impression they can on new clients. Yet removing the residue-up with abrasive cleaners and chemicals can damage and crack leather and vinyl. A new partnership between two sustainability champions now makes it easy to maintain pristine chairs while keeping salon chairs, your team and the planet healthier.
Sustain Beauty Co, home of Scrummi biodegradable towels, Paper Not Foil and ECOHEADS along with other equally cool, sustainable brands, has announced a new partnership with The Salon Chair Guys to help bring their non-toxic, but highly effective salon-specific cleaners to a larger audience across the professional market.
The Salon Chair Guys, who have appeared on TV and have a cult following within barbering, are famed for their drive to repair, restore and reuse gorgeous antique barbering chairs. But then they discovered that owners were causing almost irreparable damage by using abrasive cleaners to scrub away unavoidable residue from hair products and standard wear. So the guys - Daniel Johnson and Brian Moses - developed their own range of gentle, yet effective and non-toxic cleaners that keeps chairs looking awesome without drying out or cracking the chair material.
“Hygiene is just as important in the salon as image and experience,” said Valorie Tate, Founder of Sustain Beauty Co. “But our customers are educated enough to know that sanitizing doesn’t require the introduction of harmful chemicals for chairs and surfaces. The power of natural ingredients, used for centuries in other applications, are proven effective and are far less harmful. Plus, it helps that the coconut oil smells amazing.”
All products are now available from Sustain Beauty Co direct to salon businesses via their website and subscriptions service.
“Our mission is to assist in repair, maintenance, and/or replacement of quality furniture, that will ultimately, reduce the amount of salon and barber furniture discarded prematurely,” said Daniel from The Salon Chair Guys. “The goal is to eliminate salon chairs from becoming beauty waste, ending up in landfills, and contributing to our industry’s environmental impact.”
The Salon Chair Guys range of three all-natural products comprise a Hairspray and Product Remover, a Chrome and Metal Cleaner and a Leather and Vinyl Cleaner that will clean, protect and maintain any salon or barber chairs.
