“Water is the essence of all things; everything comes from water, and to water everything returns”
Thales von Milet Greek Philosopher
STOP THE WATER WHILE USING ME! is a natural cosmetics brand with a clear ecological appeal to save water. With deliberately reduced packaging, the design casually and cooly reminds us how easy it is to be environmentally conscious in everyday life. We are proud to be using these products within our Qbic Hotel rooms. The complete range of shampoos, soaps, shower gels and more are made from 100% natural ingredients, are produced without synthetic fragrances, colours or preservatives, contain no silicone or other raw materials based on mineral oil and are completely biodegradable.
Water covers more than two thirds of the Earth’s surface, yet only 2.5% of this is fresh water and only a third of this fresh water is actually accessible and usable to us as humans. Deciding that something needed to be done to prevent this wastage of water, a small team of creative minds got together to develop the first natural cosmetic range that encourages people to save water, introducing: Stop The Water While Using Me!
The brand has quickly become a phenomenal success, winning multiple awards. Founder, Kaya-Line Knust and her team decided to share this success and use their platform to help to make the world a better place. The label introduced ‘Good Water Projects’ designed to support intelligent projects aimed at water conservation and the provision of drinking water. International World Water Day 2014 marked the first project: a construction of fog nets in Tanzania, Africa. In 2016, the brand brought fresh drinking water to Kenyan schools with its project ‘Drop For Change’. Today the label is active in Madagascar with its new project Water Kiosk, which provides up to 500 families with more than 5000 litres of fresh drinking water day by day. The kiosk is placed in Andoharanofotsy, a small town close to Antananarivo, the capital of Madagascar.
