Manchester-based skin and hair care brand grüum has landed 1st place for ‘Best New Sustainable Hair Product’ in the Pure Beauty Global Awards! The brand’s hår Shampoo Bar wowed the judges and ranked top of its category.

This comes after grüum had also bagged themselves a Gold award for ‘Best Zero Waste Beauty Product’ and Bronze for ‘Best Plastic Free Beauty Product’ in the Global Green Beauty Awards just 2 months earlier.

grüum’s hår Shampoo Bars are a simple, sustainable alternative to bottled shampoo and boast a compact form with a powerful punch. These zero-plastic bars come in cardboard packaging and are available in 4 varieties: Brightening, Nourishing, Revitalising and Colour Protect making them ideal for all hair types.

“We’re delighted to have picked up 3 prestigious awards for our eco-conscious Shampoo Bars so soon after launching them.” said grüum Co-Founder, Andy Shaw. “Our customers always tell us how fabulous they are, so it’s great that this has been recognised by the industry.”

Jam-packed with natural goodness, these cruelty-free, vegan shampoo bars are an all round planet-friendly product with responsibly sourced ingredients, and zero-waste packaging.

At £8 each they’re great value with up to 60 to washes per bar, which is twice as long as an average 250ml bottle of liquid shampoo.

“Our aim is to offer customers simple, sustainable options in the bathroom, without compromising on product performance. Our zero-waste products work just as well as their bottled counterparts, but without the plastic packaging.” Andy said.

grüum’s range of plastic-free products extends beyond their hår Shampoo Bars, including a selection of plastic-free glôs Conditioner bars, såpa Body bars, søp Soap bars and når Shave bars.
