OWA Haircare’s Sustainable Powder Hair Wash Approaches Launch with Support from Precursor Ventures
Precursor Ventures invests in OWA Haircare to launch their innovative powder shampoo.
NEW YORK — October 25th, 2018 — OWA Haircare, Inc. gains support of San Francisco based venture capital fund Precursor Ventures as they approach the launch of their first product. Earlier this year OWA Haircare, Inc. announced their investment from RIT Venture Fund I, LLC.
OWA Haircare is an emerging beauty company that develops sustainable hair products by “thinking outside the bottle.” Moondust Hair Wash, this planet’s most innovative shampoo, is a powder that functions like a liquid when hydrated with water. Conventional liquid shampoo is typically around 80% water. Moondust Hair Wash is 0% water. “Sustainability does not have to mean compromise,” said Kailey Bradt, Founder and CEO. “However, building a sustainable business does take capital to reach the point of no-compromise to the consumer. Charles has seen the vision of OWA from the very beginning and believes in our team to make it happen. Having the fund’s support, especially pre-revenue, speaks to the mission of the fund itself.”
Charles Hudson, Managing Partner of Precursor Ventures, commented, “Kailey and the team at OWA Haircare have an exciting vision for a world where beauty products are sustainable for the environment and effective for the consumer. I’m very excited about the upcoming launch of Moondust Hair Wash and the other products that are in the pipeline. Kailey is an impressive entrepreneur whose background combines the science and consumer insights needed to bring this product to market and I am proud to back her in bringing her vision to market.”
“There are financial barriers for new brands in the cosmetic industry when sourcing sustainable materials that we will now have the opportunity to address prelaunch with Precursor’s support. Part of my vision for OWA was not only to create a more sustainable shampoo, but lead innovation in sustainable packaging and merchandise as well.” says Bradt.
OWA Haircare’s first product Moondust Hair Wash will be available in the coming months.
