Our values

Natural composition

The deodorants contain olive butter sourced in Spain which besides essential fatty acids and antioxidants adds moisture without leaving a greasy feeling on the skin. Sunflower oil adds vitamin E, has anti-inflammatory property, helps combat irritation and redness of the skin and it helps the skin to retain it’s moisture. Grape-seed oil protects against free radicals, and is anti-inflammatory and antibacterial as well. All our oils are organic and cold pressed.

Adapted to sensitive skin

Our deodorants contain magnesium that combats bad odours and is more adapted to sensitive skin that alcohol or baking soda which have shown to cause irritation on many people. The deodorant sticks are aluminium free, vegan and cruelty-free. We create fresh scents with a blend of essential oils and to add that extra kick of freshness to the deodorants without artificial fragrances.

Going as local as possible

There are many vegan and natural products on the market but these contain ingredients that come from around the globe which seemed to us counterintuitive. This is why our deodorants contain olive butter from Spain, sunflower and rapeseed wax from Germany and grape-seed, apricot or sunflower oil from several European countries. Some ingredients such as essential oils cannot be sourced in Belgium or Europe but the goal is going as local as possible to reduce the impact from transportation as much as we can with the continuous aim for improvement. Additional reason to source more locally is to have better control over the working conditions. Although we know the system is not perfect we believe European labour rights are already a good start.

Vegan

Our products are 100% vegan, which means that they do not contain any ingredient derived from an animal or produced by one (milk for example). Also, when we find out which animal ingredients in our cosmetics we don't really want to put them on the skin anymore. Learn more.

Plastic-free

We have decided to use recyclable and biodegradable paper tubes for our deodorants and lip balms. Easy to use and completely plastic-free! We are committed to providing you with quality products that respect the environment while always trying to find more sustainable alternatives.

Integrating circular economy

Circular economy doesn’t have one accepted definition, it entails a reduced demand for natural resources, and the materials that are derived from them. In this case we will refer to waste as a material that is not a prime product. In our case, we use cold-pressed organic grape-seed oil which is extracted from pulp of grapes already used in the wine and juice industry. This way we can repurpose what would become waste and keep all the qualities of the cold pressed oil!
