This haircare brand specialising in Afro hair understands that every curl, coil, and kink is unique, and so developed a range of vegan products that blends organic ingredients with the synergy of research and the founders’ own experiences.
Afrocenchix launched in 2008 and today supplies everything from sulphate-free cleansers to nourishing conditioners and styling solutions, packed with natural ingredients like aloe vera, grapeseed, avocado and coconut oil, and shea and mango butter, each product designed to nurture and protect all hair types and textures. They take pride in formulating products that work harmoniously with the hair’s natural structure, helping customers achieve healthy, vibrant locks from root to tip.
Take the Swish Shampoo that delicately cleanses, maintaining moisture balance, the Swirl Conditioner that hydrates the hair and helps with detangling or the Smooth Moisturising Hair Cream that hydrates and reduces breakage and frizz – it’s all wonderfully easy to use. The Afrocenchix Sheen Moisturising Spray adds moisture and shine to your curls, the Seal Natural Hair Oil seals in moisture, and the Spring Twisting Butter provides shine and a lightweight hold while their Soothe Scalp Oil alleviates dryness for a healthier scalp.
Over the years, the brand has fostered a community of self-love and empowerment, joined in the belief that embracing your natural hair is a powerful statement of self-acceptance and pride. From coils to braids, Afros to protective styles, Afrocenchix is a platform that celebrates the versatility of natural hair and supports customers through every step of their hair journey.
Sustainability is at the heart of Afrocenchix, too – every product embodies a commitment to reducing environmental impact, embracing eco-friendly packaging and fostering ethical sourcing practices.

This Swedish water purification and beverage company is a catalyst for sustainable change. Bluewater offers tangible solutions for a world growing short of high-quality water and threatened by throwaway plastic water bottles. Based in Stockholm, they prides themselves on innovating practical water purification solutions and beverages that offer an alternative to single-use plastic.
Bluewater has set its sights on being the world’s most planet-friendly beverage company by innovating disruptive water purification technologies to use at home, work, and on-the-go. Providing health-enhancing hydration solutions generated and distributed at the point of use – combined with reusable stainless steel and glass bottles – allows Bluewater to break the stranglehold of single-use plastic bottles and their unnecessary, polluting transportation.
Founder and CEO Bengt Rittri is one of Sweden’s leading environmental entrepreneurs, and believes we can harness human ingenuity to tackle the environmental challenges faced by the planet. His ambition is for Bluewater to tap into the creative, conceptual approach he dubs ‘social water’ – it’s all about changing attitudes in how individuals and communities access and use water for drinking and washing. ‘Bluewater offers practical solutions that help governments, local authorities, businesses, and consumers accelerate their collective and individual efforts to avoid a fast-growing, planet-wide water crisis,’ he explains.
