Bueland Shampoo Starter Kit

Introduction

In our fast-paced modern lives, finding moments of true luxury and self-indulgence has become increasingly challenging. However, one of the simplest yet most rewarding daily rituals is the act of showering. Showering not only cleanses our bodies but also rejuvenates our minds, providing a few precious moments of relaxation amidst the hustle and bustle. 
In the quest to elevate user experiences while showering, brands have focus on the luxury of lather which is most easily attained through liquid soap packaged in plastic bottles.

Trash on Beach

In the United States alone, 550 million empty shampoo bottles are thrown out annually. The average American goes through 11 bottles of shampoo a year, resulting in unnecessary plastic waste.

The Effects of Liquid Soap

The transition from bar soap to liquid soap can be attributed to several factors, including convenience, hygiene perceptions, marketing strategies, and evolving consumer preferences. 

01 

Convenience

Liquid soap is often considered more convenient to use compared to bar soap. With liquid soap, users can dispense the desired amount without the need to handle a slippery bar, making it easier to use in various settings like public restrooms and kitchens.

03

Strategic Marketing

Companies that produce liquid soap have invested heavily in marketing and product innovation, promoting the idea that liquid soap is a more modern and superior alternative. Clever marketing campaigns and appealing packaging have contributed to the popularity of liquid soap among consumers.

02

Hygiene Perceptions

Some people perceive liquid soap as more hygienic than bar soap. The concern arises from the fact that bar soap sits in a communal space and may accumulate germs and bacteria from multiple users. In contrast, liquid soap is dispensed from a pump or a 
container, minimizing direct contact and potential contamination.

04

Preceived Luxury

Liquid soap is often associated with luxury and higher-end personal care products. The premium packaging and the ability to create rich lathers enhance the perception of indulgence, making it an attractive option for those seeking a luxurious shower or handwashing experience.

The Idea

Imagine a showering experience that goes beyond the ordinary, where luxury is not merely a concept but a tangible part of every wash. This project aims to revolutionize the way we approach personal care by introducing a refillable dissolving shampoo tablet system. This cutting-edge technology combines sustainability, convenience, and opulence in a single package, turning the act of shampooing into a luxurious affair.

Refillable

Traditional plastic shampoo bottles are replaced with compact, dissolvable tablets that are gentle on the environment and effortless to use. Each tablet is crafted using premium, all- natural ingredients, free from harmful chemicals and fillers, ensuring a pampering experience for both the user and the planet.

Elegance

The accompanying dispenser is an embodiment of elegance 
and sophistication. Crafted from sustainable materials, it 
seamlessly integrates into any shower setting, elevating the overall aesthetic while providing an ergonomic and user-friendly interface.

Personal

A refillable, dissolving shampoo tablet system doesn’t have to compromise on individual preferences. Users can select from a diverse range of shampoo formulas, each tailored to specific hair types and needs. .
