BABES BEHIND THE BARS
It all started with two best friends, a dose of post-partum anxiety and a couple of glasses of wine.
Unwrapped Life came to be when founder Hayley McKenzie was on maternity leave in 2016 after the birth of her first child. She suffered from post-partum anxiety, which manifested as ‘eco-anxiety’ (it's a thing, look it up!). She became extremely worried about all the disposable plastic we use in our daily lives and what this waste is going to mean for future generations.
After countless hours commiserating with her best friend and future co-founder Arden Teasdale, they decided to do something about it. The two of them started looking for ways to cut single-use plastic out of their lives, but there were so few options: especially for luxury staples like shampoo and conditioner. The girls tried other solid bars on the market but became frustrated as many of them did not work on their long hair. This led them to research and formulate their own solid hair bars, ones that would work amazingly well on all hair types.
They are passionate about spreading eco-awareness and helping others cut down on common single-use items (shampoo really doesn't need to be in a bottle, you’ll see!), all without compromising style and good hair days!
Together, they have a vision to grow Unwrapped Life into a zero-waste lifestyle brand, and a go-to source for all things eco-friendly.
