Depending on what you mean by polluting or re-entering the profile
information all the time this might not be what you want. When I write
scripts that rely on specific dependencies I don't want to permanently
install, I write the shebang like this:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
#!/usr/bin/env -S guix shell ruby ruby-colorize password-store -- ruby
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

This relies on /usr/bin/env supporting -S, which to my understanding
isn't POSIX but instead a coreutils extension. Pretty sure --container
would work here but I've not tried it.

Take it easy,
