REDUCE, REUSE & REFILL
"Love this product! Beautiful glass bottle, soft cleansing foam, the refill is simple and cost effective, and the West Coast scent is delish. New favourite for sure!" - Zoe
CLEANSE AND HYDRATE WITH OCEAN MINERALS
Our Ocean Foam Hand & Body Wash is enhanced with the same beneficial minerals and elements found in the ocean. Many of these ingredients are easily absorbed by the skin and have been shown to improve elasticity and to heal and protect the skin barrier. Key ingredients include Dead Sea salt, which is rich in magnesium, potassium, calcium chlorides, chromium, selenium, zinc and vanadium, and New Zealand red seaweed extract with antioxidant, metal chelator (anti-pollutant), antiviral, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
FRAGRANCES INSPIRED BY THE EAST AND WEST COASTS OF NZ
Both sides of New Zealand offer incredibly unique and beautiful beaches, ranging from the untamed waters of the Far North to the brooding seas of the Deep south. We all have our favourite and whether it’s on the East or West coast, our fragrances capture their spirit.
West Coast - Invigorating, fresh, green, lightly spiced. With notes of cedar, lemongrass, artemisia, patchouli, clove, eucalyptus, coffee, manuka and basil.
East Coast - Calming, refreshing, sweet. With notes of mandarin, sweet orange, cedar, lime, amyris, litsea cubeba, kanuka, cinnamon and vanilla.
DON'T PAY FOR WATER
Reducing our packaging and waste is key to creating a more sustainable product. That’s why we don’t use a liquid hand wash. Just 30ml of our Ocean Foam concentrate makes a 300ml bottle of Ocean Foam Hand & Body Wash. Our 200ml bottle of concentrate will make 6 x 300ml bottles of Ocean Foam Hand & Body Wash. All you need to do is add the water and shake for 15 seconds. We think it’s worth the extra effort.
RECYCLING ISN'T WORKING
Plastic reduction is where our focus needs to be; not just on recycling. We must depart from the existing linear model of ‘take, make, waste’ and embrace a truly circular model of reduce, reuse and refill. Ascent will set a new benchmark in what it means to be truly sustainable by designing all our products to be used in a truly circular model, where refilling, returning empties and regenerating the earth are simply responsible business.
We offer a FREE courier to return 2 or more empty bottles for washing and reuse. Just request a courier docket in the cart notes when you order your third concentrate bottle.
THE PROBLEM IS PLASTIC
Worldwide, at least 8.8m tons of plastic waste enters the marine environment each year, the equivalent of dumping a rubbish truck filled with plastic into the ocean every single minute. The average New Zealand household uses 941 plastic containers or bottles a year and 1.76 billion plastic containers are disposed of annually in New Zealand. While plastic packaging is widely accepted by our recycling schemes, we know that approximately 40% of recyclable plastic, and 58% of packaging, still ends up in a landfill. Even if plastic is recycled, the same piece of plastic can only be recycled roughly 2 to 3 times before it’s quality decreases to the point where it can no longer be used.
