Plastic waste is causing a huge environmental problems. However, when it comes to the day-to-day items you use the most, it’s difficult to eliminate plastic. Until now. Thanks to Human Essentials, you now have a zero-waste deodorant option.

Two blue tubes of deodorant. One of them is resting on its side while the other one stands beside it with a peelable packaging.

Human Essentials’ patented canister is made with zero plastic. Instead, it’s 100% biodegradable and can go into paper recycling or a compost pile. It’s not going to leave behind any waste that ends up polluting the oceans, like so many plastic deodorant canisters that line the shelves of the grocery store.

The made in Canada deodorant is plant-based, vegan and cruelty-free. So far, the product line includes four different smells to choose from. Try one formula made with a combination of sea salt, guava and coconut. Another is made with eucalyptus and mountain pine. The base formula contains natural ingredients like castor bean, shea butter and arrowroot. It is also antibacterial, antifungal and anti-inflammatory.

Furthermore, the deodorant was designed with athletes in mind, offering powerful sweat protection even under grueling circumstances. The natural formulas are free of aluminum and parabens, damaging ingredients that actually affect your hormonal balance.

Additionally, there’s also no push-up or twisting the canister. Use the peel design to expose the amount of deodorant you need until the canister is empty. Afterwards, simply recycle the canister knowing it will degrade naturally.
