About

Who are we?

Glasshouse Salon was born from the belief that great looking hair can be achieved whilst nurturing its long-term condition - and with consideration for the environment. Glasshouse was London’s first sustainable hair salon and has become a destination for modern cuts and organic-based colour. Founded in East London in 2013 by New Zealander Olivia Crighton, our salon focuses on healthy hair condition by using products that are gentle, effective and formulated with as many natural ingredients as possible.

Our cosy space is a one-stop-shop for all your sustainable hair and beauty needs. We’ve nurtured a talented team of hair industry professionals who know their silicones from their sulphates and provide the highest level of skill and care. We also stock a range of cult natural and organic beauty brands - both in the salon and online at Glasshouse Shop - each mirroring our ethos.

What are we planning to make? 

We want you to be a part of the launch of our first ever product. Glasshouse Hair, Hand & Body Wash is a practical, ecological solution to all your shower-side needs. It is multi-use without compromising on performance - as good for your hair as it is for your hands and body. It contains the highest proportion of natural and organic ingredients and avoids potentially harmful additives. 

Nourishing ingredients have been specifically chosen based on their individual benefits - whether that’s certified organic aloe vera to soothe or natural wheat protein to repair - all skin and hair types will see results.

Why are we making it? 

The organic beauty and wellbeing market has being growing consecutively for the last 7 years - in 2017 there was a 24% growth in the industry and it is currently worth £61.2 million in the UK. However, faced with so much choice, it’s never felt more complicated to find a high-performing, cost-effective and environmentally-conscious product that will perform for you and your family. This product is designed to give total transparency in a market sector that is increasingly hard to navigate.

The average adult uses 9 personal care products each day. Our goal is to eliminate the need for several products sitting on your bathroom shelf and replace them with one effective cleanser that the whole family can use regardless of age or gender. This is the ethos behind Glasshouse, Hair, Hand and Body Wash.

 What does it do?

First and foremost, it’s a salon-professional shampoo that strengthens hair and makes colour last longer, without relying on sulphates or silicones. Naturally-strengthening wheat protein restores damaged, oily or colour-treated hair. Organic comfrey softens and detangles and the anti-fungal properties of aloe vera soothes irritated scalps. 

Secondly, it’s a nourishing citrus and ginger scented body wash that can be used from head-to-toe, on all the family. Finally, it makes the perfect daily hand wash. This is a functional, unfussy product that feels and smells good; a bathroom staple to be used, replaced and enjoyed time and time again.

How does it impact the environment?

Glasshouse Hair, Hand & Body Wash cares for the environment in the same way it cares for our skin and hair. Our commitment to launching a sustainable product comes from our belief in the effectiveness of natural and organic ingredients. As a result, the product is formulated with the highest proportion of these ingredients possible and manufactured in a way that leaves a softer environmental footprint.

We acknowledge there is more to be done, and as a business we are constantly seeking new ways to further minimise our environmental output. 

What can I get on Kickstarter?

You can get your hands on our Hair, Hand & Body Wash before anyone else - if our campaign is successful, we’ll send you a bottle within three weeks of it ending. Our other rewards span every inch of the Glasshouse brand. Switch up your shopper with a sustainably-made Glasshouse Bag, give your beauty routine an eco-makeover with money to spend online at Glasshouse Shop or pay us a visit in the salon to enjoy our colour, cut and treatment services. If you’re feeling really generous, we’ll return the favour by providing you with a year's worth of wash, haircuts or even a private event where Glasshouse Salon is all yours for one night only.

What's our plan and schedule? 

All of our packaging components have been manufactured and are waiting to be filled. If our Kickstarter is successful and your reward involves a bottle of Hair, Hand & Body Wash, you'll receive it within three weeks of our campaign ending. If your reward involves a voucher to be redeemed online or in the salon, you will also receive this within three weeks. Please note, salon bookings usually need to be booked in advance, depending on our appointment availability. 

How will we spend the money raised? 

If our Kickstarter campaign is successful, all of the money you have pledged will enable us to make this product launch a reality.

From the founder:

"I have always felt there was a gap in the market for an effective professional product that the whole household can use safely, including children. When I began working with more gentle and naturally-based hair and beauty care over 10 years ago, I was blown away by the fact that a lot of them had the secret ability to multi-task. Glasshouse Wash is sulphate-free and has a suitable pH to gently cleanse both the hair and body. I’ve always believed we should pay the same level of attention and care to both our hair and body and the ingredients and products we choose to use on them. It was also important to me that our product is inclusive and all skin and hair types can benefit. We are incredibly lucky to have been able to work with what I believe is the UK’s best independent manufacturer of natural and organic products. This product is a physical display of everything I believe in, both in my business and in my personal life. It’s a dream come true to see it so close to being a reality - I can’t wait to see it out there in the world and for people to enjoy its many benefits." - Olivia Crighton

Risks and challenges

We are an independently-owned business with a small and very busy team of staff. Our aim is to get all the rewards sent out within three weeks (hopefully sooner!) of our Kickstarter ending. We think this a realistic delivery window but will be in contact with our backers if there are any delays. We offer delivery to the UK, Ireland, Europe, America, Canada, New Zealand and Australia. Please note, customs charges may apply to international shipments.

If we are not successful with raising the funds we need through Kickstarter, we will explore other options to hopefully make the launch of Glasshouse Hair, Hand & Body Wash a reality.
