EVERIST NAMED AS ONE OF TIME’S BEST INVENTIONS OF 2021 The award-winning, patent-pending waterless hair care concentrates have been recognized as a disruptive innovator within the beauty category
Everist Inc. (Everist), an acclaimed clean beauty start-up built for ‘eco-optimists’, is pleased to reveal that its patent-pending waterless shampoo and conditioner concentrates were selected by TIME as one of the 100 Best Inventions of 2021 internationally. The revolutionary hair care duo - 3x concentrated, water-activated pastes made with clean and biodegradable ingredients - was featured on the prestigious list in the beauty category among only three other brands.
“We are honored to be recognized by TIME and humbled to see Everist’s hair care concentrates listed among the most innovative and groundbreaking inventions of 2021,” said Jayme Jenkins, Co-Founder and Chief Brand Officer at Everist. “From day one we’ve set out to rethink the way things are done, with the intention of building the beauty brand of the future. For the sake of our planet, we need to embrace change and our goal at Everist is to make that change an upgrade from the status quo versus a compromise. This award is a testament to the impact we wanted to create with Everist, and we are grateful to the teams at TIME for this acknowledgement.”
After launching Everist in February 2021 alongside its award-winning, patent-pending waterless hair care concentrates packaged in infinitely recyclable aluminum, Everist has since been hard at work to bring forth clean, sustainable and performance-driven innovation that changes personal care routines and people’s perception of eco beauty. In October, the female-led company extended its line with the introduction of a waterless body wash concentrate, offering its consumers the perfect trio of shower essentials, all while propelling the brand’s expansion.
“Everist was built on the premise of revolutionizing the beauty category that has traditionally been dependent on single-use plastic packaging and products that can be up to 90% water. The carbon and waste impact of going waterless is significant,” shared Jessica Stevenson, Chief Executive Officer of Everist. “We are dedicated to delivering innovative eco-upgrades for the mainstream beauty customer that wants it all - high-performance, clean ingredients, sustainable packaging and impeccable design. We believe people want to make more sustainable choices and we’re here to make those choices even easier.”
Rooted in its mission to democratize low-waste, sustainable beauty, the start-up plans to continue bringing positive and lasting change in an oversaturated industry. Part of its long-term growth strategy is the expansion of its retail presence and its new product pipeline, as well as the cultivation of its blossoming ‘eco-optimist’ community.
TIME’s list of the 100 Best Inventions celebrates products, brands and companies that are making the world better, smarter and even a bit more fun. To assemble its annual list, TIME solicited nominations from editors and correspondents around the world, as well as through an online application process. The media evaluated each contender on a number of key factors, including originality, creativity, efficacy, ambition and impact. The result: a list composed of 26 categories, from beauty to design, education and entertainment, and artificial intelligence among others.
Launched in 2021 by beauty industry veterans Jayme Jenkins and Jessica Stevenson, Everist is a beauty company driven by innovation and the mission to prove that eco products can be for everyone. Built with the goal of creating as little waste as possible, Everist waterless products are plant-based, single-use plastic-free, vegan, cruelty-free, and are packaged in infinitely recyclable toothpaste-like aluminum tubes. Everist is a brand built for eco-optimists and welcomes everyone to embrace small changes that add up to big impact.
