Project Description

MASAMI is a clean, premium haircare brand that just launched in February 2020.  Our brand is good for you without the bad ingredients (no sulfates, phthalates or parabens) and is high performing and super hydrating, thanks to our unique Japanese ocean botanical, Mekabu. 

We have a purpose -- to help rebalance the ocean ecosystem, starting with northeastern Japan (which is still dealing with the impact of the tsunami in 2011).  To that end, we created The MASAMI INSTITUTE to fund ocean conservation research in Japan.  We now want to take our sustainability efforts further and create a large size, ceramic, refillable bottle to replace our plastic packaging.  This campaign will fund our refillable bottle initiative.

 

 

A bit more about us -- Lynn Power is the CEO and Co-founder of MASAMI.  She spent 30 years in advertising, most recently as CEO of J. Walter Thompson NY before leaving to become an entrepreneur.  She has worked on many iconic beauty brands including L'Oreal, Gillette Venus, Clinique, Vichy, Nexxus and more.  James Hammett is Chief Innovation Officer and Co-Founder with a passion for beauty -- spending 20+ years working on Clairol and L'Oreal.  He spent the past 10 years perfecting the MASAMI formulations.  To launch MASAMI in today's DTC consumer-led world, they have put together a team of digital and PR professionals to fuel the business, including a digital acquisition expert, UX designer, content creator and media relations specialist.

We hope you join us on our journey to make the beauty industry more sustainable.  This refillable bottle is the first of many initiatives to come.

The Campaign FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions:

What is Mekabu?

Mekabu is an ocean botanical that grows in the depths of the ocean off the northeast coast of Japan. It is a nutrient-rich superfood full of minerals, algae and vitamins that, in addition to being edible, provides incredible hydration to reawaken your hair. Ancient Japanese cultures have been using it for centuries and now we are bringing this unique and special ingredient to you.

Clean beauty - What does it mean to be a clean beauty brand?

We believe in taking the best of nature and eliminating anything bad. Our formulas are naturally derived, and we source our Mekabu in powder form, directly from Japan, where it is harvested seasonally. We adhere to EU clean beauty standards in all of our formulations.

We believe that when we use a natural resource, we need to replenish it.  That’s why we set up The MASAMI Institute, to help rebalance the ocean ecosystem in northeastern Japan and beyond.
