Kao Embraces Vish Technology
A historic deal between Vish and Kao Salon Division UK promises to propel thousands of salons towards greater sustainability.
In the first a rangement of its type between the technology provider and a colour house, Kao salons will use Vish to cut over-dispensing and colour waste. Research has shown that across the industry salons throw or rinse away as much as 30% of the colour they purchase.
“We are delighted that Kao has become the first to encourage its salons to reduce waste and increase profits,” said Tom Bentley-Taylor, MD of Vish EMEA. “We hope to foster similar relationships with all the manufacturers so together we can help protect and build salon profits while p otecting the planet.”
