      Packaging & Sustainability

      • Our dry formulas are concentrated, lightweight and have a lower carbon footprint than liquid alternatives

      • 100% Waterless formulas: Water is a finite resource; our dry formulas help do their part in the water scarcity crisis, which has become a major ecological concern. Not only our formulas have more potent actives but also a lower carbon footprint.

      • Bottle: our aluminium bottles (including lid) are lightweight, compact and recyclable. They are designed to be refilled with our certified home compostable refills.

      • End of life: if you choose not to refill, your aluminium bottle can be recycled. Please remove the label first, give the bottle a quick rinse and put in your kerbside collection (NZ only) or local metal recycler. Unfortunately our label cannot be recycled yet. We are working towards having it directly printed onto the bottle.

      Excellent products

      Bought the trial size of the shampoo and conditioner, initially didn't use quite enough but once I adjusted that have found they both work really well when I work them through my hair properly. Don't need to shampoo every day and my hair is nice and soft and shiny, no longer as frizzy as well. Am now looking to get the bodywash as well. Will be buying the refills in the future

      The product I didn't know I needed

      Last year I hit that part of life that nobody knows exists until they've been in it themselves. Peri-menopause.

      I didn't know it myself, all I knew is that my hair no longer behaved the way it has all my life and for the first time, my dry frizzy hair was oily - the same day as it was freshly washed.

      I tried so many different products and with nothing to lose I resorted to a trial I had been gifted.

      Dust and Glow is a game changer. Not only is it environmentally kinder, and travel friendly, this deceptively simple product has made my hair softer and easier to manage than I have ever experienced outside of the salon.

      No more oily, but even more amazing, no more dry and frizzy.

      Just, wow.

      Game changer

      I have been using this shampoo for 2 years now and I love it. Not only for its sustainable packaging but I love how clean my hair has been. I only have to wash my hair twice a week now. Once you get past the powder format you quickly realise that it is no different to using other shampoos. Highly recommend!

      Shampoo

      I have been using the shampoo for some time, and find it is the only one which does not make my scalp itchy. The reusable container is perfect for travelling, and the shampoo lasts even long trips away. Can highly recommend this product.

      Thanks so much Yvonne. So glad to hear that your Powder Based Shampoo has helped with your itchy scalp. I am so pleased that you are taking it on all your adventures. Gaelle

      Is it vegan or Cruelty Free?

      At Dust&Glow, we believe in creating high-quality beauty products that are not only effective but also ethical and sustainable. We are proud to be a cruelty-free and vegan-certified brand by PETA.

      This means

      1. No animal testing: We are committed to never testing our products or ingredients on animals, at any stage of the production process. This means that all of our products are cruelty-free, and we only work with suppliers who share our values.
      2. Vegan ingredients: All of our products are 100% vegan, which means that they do not contain any animal-derived ingredients, such as beeswax, lanolin, or collagen. Instead, we use plant-based ingredients that are just as effective and gentle on your skin.
      3. Ethical sourcing: We are committed to using only ingredients that are ethically and sustainably sourced. We work closely with our suppliers to ensure that they share our values and are committed to fair labor practices and environmental sustainability.

      Do your products lather?

      They sure do. When activated with water, our innovative skin, hair bodycare powders will transform from a powder to a rich lather.

      This luxurious creamy lather is obtained without any sulfates. Instead, we have chosen to only use a gentle coconut-derived surfactant suitable even for children or sensitive scalps or skin. Rinsing is also very easy and you waste less water, even in the shower.

      How do I store my Dust&Glow powders?

      Here are some easy & simple tips on how to store your favourite Dust&Glow powders:

      1. Close the cap: After use, it's important to close the cap to prevent moisture and humidity from getting into the bottle. This will help keep the powder fresh and dry.
      2. Keep away from direct water flow: While our powders are designed to be waterless, it's still important to keep them away from direct water flow in the shower. This will prevent any accidental splashes or drips from getting into the bottle and affecting the powder.
      3. Consider using a small built-in or add-on shelf: If you're worried about water getting into the bottle, consider using a small built-in shelf in your shower to keep the bottle elevated and away from any potential water sources.
