We’ve long been fans of Corpus Naturals. The luxurious and chic green & gold packaging, the soft roll-on texture that doesn’t drag or crumble on the skin and extensive fragrance range isn’t all we love about this range of natural deodorants and body care. The biggest dealmaker, in fact, is quite simple. They actually work.
Who are Corpus?
Founded by J.P. Mastey in 2018, Corpus Naturals is a collection of refined and redesigned natural body care. What does this mean? Quite simply that they’ve re-imagined what natural body care is. Forget unattractive packaging, formulations that either don’t work, don’t feel nice, or don’t smell nice. Corpus Naturals is changing the game with beautiful natural formulas, highly sophisticated natural fragrances and products that actually work.
A skincare expert with over 15 years experience, J.P was long interested in natural products but struggled to find products that performed to high standards. After many years of experimentation, he was able to create an effective, natural formula with no compromises. “Natural deodorant was one of those products I felt passionate about, and I got close several times, but close was not good enough” says Mastey. Newfound techniques, persistence, and inspiration all came together and CORPUS was created.
The Corpus Fragrances
Corpus explain that we live in an industry of “off the shelf,” white-label repurposed products that marketers whip into something special. It’s nothing new, but it often leaves for repetitive scents and uninspiring products. Nothing was off the shelf when it came to Corpus’ scents. “It was no easy feat to create a natural fragrance that meets the expectations of fine fragrance. Natural perfumery could be compared to the modern vegan chef who transforms the constraints on ingredients into convincing and satisfying substitutes. Only with a great amount of research, development, creativity, and experience can you compete with the expectations set by conventional chemistry.”
“Our natural fragrance is built with the traditional fragrance architecture of a base, middle and top note. The fragrances we have come to love over the years are chalked full of synthetic compounds that give them a burst of top notes and a musky base. The typical Musk and Aldehyde notes that are used in perfumery are only available in synthetic forms. This presented a major challenge, but we pushed our chemist to go above and beyond and stretch the possibilities of the palette of natural notes at our disposal.”
Choosing fragrance online is tricky – we get it. That’s why we carry the complete Corpus Naturals line of deodorants in-store at our Melbourne flagship. Visit us in-store to explore the range of Corpus Naturals fragrances IRL.
Making the switch to natural
Ok, here’s the bit we all want to know. What do Corpus have to say about the transition from synthetic antiperspirant to natural deodorant?
“When you stop using personal care products containing synthetic, artificial ingredients, it’s sometimes common for your body to go through a brief period of readjustment. This is completely normal and necessary for your body to expel foreign toxins. Some people notice increased wetness and odor during the transition period, but most experience little to no odor, wetness, or irritation.
If you’re curious about switching to natural products, start with deodorant. You’ll likely spend over 3 and a half days of your life applying deodorant, so why not make sure you’re lathering on something that’s not only good for you, but also formulated with the most recent and advanced science in mind. Trust us, Corpus is not a thick paste DIY kitchen recipe, rather it’s a high-quality, luxury formula that took years for body care and beauty industry experts to perfect.
Swapping out your go-to deodorant for Corpus is easy. But, let’s be real— many people are intimidated or afraid to switch to a natural formulation because they believe that doing so requires an underarm-detox-period where they will sweat and reek of unbearable body odor. Luckily, there is likely no or only a minimal detox period when switching from your name brand deodorant to Corpus. Did you catch that? Switching from other deodorants to Corpus’ natural formulation is a minor adjustment for your body.
The ethos behind Corpus Naturals
We’re committed to using energy from renewable sources. Solar power is used to create our formula and fill. Our container and box are manufactured using Hydro-Electric energy. We take several steps that add up to positive environmental impact.
We’ll never sacrifice quality and performance. We want you to have the cleanest, most enjoyable experience using our products while being 100% transparent on what they contain and where they’re sourced.
We chose aluminum for our Natural Body Wash bottles as a shower-safe, recyclable alternative to plastic. At the outset of this initiative we have immediately saved 1.8 tons of plastic from the ocean, landfill or incinerator; that’s roughly the weight of 20 baby elephants and we are just getting started with this new packaging program. Currently, we are using a plastic applicator for our Natural Deodorant. It is made from a combination of new and recycled plastic (both post-industrial and post-consumer). The outer packaging is made using sustainable forestry and recycled pulp.
Our philosophy is to evolve towards green solutions whenever possible, and as sustainable alternatives become available we plan to adopt them.
Supply chains standards:
We are a small, privately-owned, California-based business with ties across the United States.
Every aspect of the product; from formula, to packaging, to manufacturing happens in the States. We did this on purpose. We want full visibility and the capability to trace every step when creating Corpus products.
We partner with other small, family-run businesses, also based in the States. These relationships afford us full transparency in the manufacturing process and a likeminded approach to lessen environmental impact. We know there are still great manufacturers in this country, and our choice to work with them is measured beyond concern over the bottom line.
