Frank Lloyd Wright said, “form and function are one.”
The best designs elevate ordinary objects into extraordinary experiences. The satisfying precision, the weight, the perfect balance… often it’s the small details and nuances that remind you of a well-made product.
Deodorant is something you use every day. It’s a necessity that you probably haven’t given much thought to until recently. Natural is important, but so is the experience of using a product. We don’t think they are mutually exclusive.
We strongly believe that luxury comes from the thoughtful selection of products that are both purposeful and elicit happiness — that each person has an evolving, intimate definition of luxury, that cannot be culturally prescribed or achieved.
WHEN WE SAY THE DETAILS MATTER, WE MEAN IT.
We didn’t do “natural” because it’s a hot topic. We did it because we knew we could do it better.
To create something exceptional, it has to be the sum of all parts. It’s not enough to make a product that simply works. The product must feel good; the weight, the proportions, and the texture all must come together. That green color and minimalist design is not simply a branding choice but a well thought-out decision that expresses our point of view. Our goal was and is to be pleasing to all senses.
Every detail was equally considered for its purpose. The custom green box had to be made just for us (you won’t find that paper stock in a swatch book) to get that perfect tone of green. It also had to be as “green” as possible so we used a family run factory that uses 100% hydroelectric power, sustainably forested pulp, and recycled content.
Many traditional deodorants on the market are actually antiperspirants. If you use a roll-on, or aerosol spray, you’ll likely find zirconium tetrachlorohydrex or aluminum chlorohydrate in the active ingredients list. These ingredients are actually forms of aluminum that clog underarm sweat glands that shut down normal perspiration. And while there has been no direct link between deodorants containing aluminum and cancer as of yet, such speculation has led consumers to become more mindful about what they’re putting on their bodies. What is known is that aluminum may cause gene instability in breast tissue that may play a role in promoting tumor or cancer growth. It’s even been found that over half of all breast cancers begin in the upper outer part of the breast, right near the underarm. Certainly, such a statistic is not enough to connect all aluminum-based deodorants with breast cancer incidence, but it has caused eyebrows to raise.
If the aluminum concern alone isn’t enough to make you switch, consider parabens. Found in many popular antiperspirants, parabens are synthetic preservatives. Research suggests that parabens are pesky endocrine disruptors that can interfere with the production and regulation of hormones, like estrogen. The concern is that we apply deodorant close to or on the estrogen-sensitive tissue of our underarm and breast, which may thwart our endocrine system’s balance and promote the growth of diseased cells. Keep in mind that chronic diseases, like autoimmune conditions and cancer, are complex, multi-stage processes that take years to develop, so it’s nearly impossible to pinpoint one exact cause. What you can do is take the steps to put yourself in a position of better health by using a paraben-free deodorant.
It’s unsurprising that the hallmark of any effective deodorant is that it smells good. And, because everyone wants to smell fresh, nearly all deodorants are scented. And if you looked at the ingredients list of any conventional deodorant or antiperspirant, you wouldn’t learn much about what was used to scent it. Unfortunately, “fragrance” and “parfum” are protected under trademark secret, which means that consumers are often left in the dark about what ingredients are used in scent formulation. Plus, elusive “fragrance” has been linked with allergies, dermatitis, respiratory conditions, and reproductive issues.
If you’ve tried any natural deodorant, have you wondered why so many of them feature the same scents? Most natural deodorants rely solely on essential oils to achieve their signature scent, which is why singular notes, like lavender, eucalyptus, and tea tree, are commonplace. For those switching from antiperspirants or conventional deodorant brands, such limited aromatic selection can be discouraging and may even deter one from trying an all-natural formula.
