I really love the philosophy and recyclable packaging behind OWAY Organic range which inspires an authentic and transparent lifestyle with respect for the environment and attention to detail; I was given OWAY Frequent Use Hair & Scalp Bath and Frequent Use Conditioner to try out and this is what I thought:
Organic Way (OWAY) uses plant-derived active ingredients from botanicals sourced from South America, Africa, Indonesia, Indochina and Australia and is the first hair and scalp treatment line to use essential oils and pure micronized plants from biodynamic farming, which means superb care for the consumer. Biodynamic farming has a holistic, egological and ethical approach to harvesting ingredients which results in zero chemical use, maintains soil fertility and focuses on a harmonic relationship between plants, people and animals.
OWAY is also the first professional haircare line to focus on unnecessary packaging, by only using glass or aluminium which are protective and recyclable materials and is based on a 0-mile biodynamic extracts. This means using only the necessary tools exclusively in eco-sustainable paper, metal, cotton, wood natural materials that convey authentic sensations.
'For our bottles, we only use glass. Why?
*Glass is the best packaging for foods, medicinal products and cosmetics because it protects in a pure, hygienic and safeway
*Glass bottles and jars are 100% inert: this means that, unlike plastic, they do not release substances into the product contained in them
Glass is composed of raw materials found in nature and is completely recyclable and reusable.
For our tubes, we use only aluminium, a very special material that offers many advantages:
*Aluminium is ideal for packaging because it is lightweight, malleable, impact- and corrosion-resistant
*It guarantees a barrier effect that protects the product against light, air, humidity and bacteria. It is perfect for both cosmetics and food products.
*Like glass, it is 100% recyclable and infinitely usable. Owing to the constant increase in the quantity of recycled goods in Italy, the availability of recovered raw material replaces new raw material more and more.

The biodynamic method is the purest and most effective way of cultivation which is free from synthetic fertilisers, pesticides, herbicides and insecticides, respect the environment and plant life and, of course, hasn't been tested on animals.
So now I've given you a bit of backgorund on the brand, what do I think of these lovelies?
OWAY Frequent Use Hair & Scalp Bath smells lemony and is gentle enough to use frequently. It doesn't lather as much as prior shampoos I've used which takes time to get used to, but my hair felt super clean and smelt deliciously lemony. Organic white tea is good for anti ageing properties, with Chestnut to strengthen and moisturise, whilst Anisata offers antiseptic and antibacterial properties.
ZAR360 for 240ml
OWAY Frequent Use Conditioner contains biodynamic lemon to revitalise dull hair, organic white tea and Vitamin C for anti ageing and Anisata for soothing and antibacterial properties.
I was thrilled to see my normal frizz take flight! The conditioner didn't weigh my hair down and my hair actually feels softer!
I am trying to live a cleaner and more holistic way of life so am super excited to use and know more about this brand that is currently available in Sorbet Drybars and Sorbet Man Stores aswell as Lighthouse Wellness Brands 011 262 2451.
Yay for OWAY!
Hope you get to try OWAY out - they are my number one go to from here!
