Umanos Marine Greens Sustainable Bodycare Collection

The ocean is a pretty magical place.

Besides making all life on Earth possible, the ocean houses an incredible array of plant life with some truly extraordinary properties. Seaweed is one example of an amazingly diverse plant that’s capable of so much more than just assembling sushi.

Umanos is a new mission-driven brand that aims to bottle a portion of that power in a line of sustainable hair and bodycare products.

Bringing the power of the ocean to hair and skin

The Marine Greens collection is a line of premium quality, highly sustainable shampoo, conditioner and body wash designed for everyday use. Their secret lies in the plant-based ingredients that not only replace traditional chemical additives, but downright surpass them.

Ocean superfoods like Bladderwrack, Nori and Marine Algae are combined to deliver over 65 different vitamins and minerals to your skin and hair.

  • The high iodine content in seaweed gives it antimicrobial and antiviral properties that can help with dandruff and dryness and moisturize both skin and strands. 
  • Rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, Vitamin A and C, your hair follicles get proper nutrients to help strengthen and stimulate growth.
  • The fatty acids in seaweed help keep skin and strands protected & smooth.

Seriously sustainable

Using ocean-sourced ingredients doesn’t do much good if the packaging ends up as more plastic polluting the very same water. That’s why Umanos went a different route with sleek and sustainable containers made from BPA-free aluminum. Aluminum is not only refillable but infinitely recyclable – even the labels are printed right on the bottle to eliminate paper.

Seaweed itself can also be considered one of the most sustainable plants in the world. Because it grows at rates over 30 times those of land-based plants, Seaweed is easily naturally replenished. It also works to de-acidify seawater and reduce carbon dioxide.
