Deodorant

Is your deodorant a natural deodorant?

Yes it is! Our deodorant doesn’t contain aluminium salts that block your pores and prevent you from sweating naturally. 

What is the difference between a natural deodorant and an antiperspirant?

An antiperspirant reduces the amount of sweat. It contains aluminium salts that form a gel on your skin and block your sweat glands. Hence it inhibits you from sweating naturally, to excrete other body byproducts, and to keep your body temperature in balance. If you want to spot an antiperspirant, look at the ingredients list for “aluminium chlorohydrate”, “potassium alum” or “aluminum zirconium pentachlorohydrate”.


A natural deodorant works differently by reducing and neutralising odour causing bacteria (read: what makes you stink), but it doesn’t prevent you from sweating. Our deodorant contains a mix of natural-derived moisture absorbing and anti-microbial ingredients to ensure your skin flora is in balance and your underarms stay healthy and fresh. 

Why should I make the switch to a natural deodorant?

We simply don’t support the idea of using antiperspirants that block your underarms and prevent you from sweating naturally and releasing body byproducts. Also, most antiperspirants contain a significant amount of fragrance to mask any bad smell, as well as alcohol to kill bad (and good) bacteria. Both ingredients may leave your skin prone to dryness and irritation, and in some cases allergy. 


We also care about the planet. Most aluminium salts in antiperspirants are synthetically produced. Our deodorant only contains natural and vegan derived ingredients from responsible sources. People and planet friendly skincare. 

How should I make the switch to a natural deodorant?

You can easily switch to our deodorant. Just apply it daily with 2-4 rolls for each armpit, or whatever works for you. 

Should I expect a detox period when switching to a natural deodorant?

We recommend trying our deodorant for at least two weeks. The reason is that your underarms will automatically release toxins that have been blocked by the aluminium salts in your antiperspirant. Based on customer feedback, this “detox” period may last up to two weeks. However, most people don’t even notice it.

Why is sweating good?

Sweat is natural and healthy. Sweating is the main way our body regulates its temperature and releases toxins. Sweat is odourless, however when it interacts with certain bacteria it causes body odour (bad smell). 

Where is it made?

It’s produced in Denmark in close collaboration with a professional laboratory.

How long is the shelf life (after opening)?

Our deodorant is safe for use 12 months after you've opened it. 

How frequently should I apply the deodorant?

It varies from person to person. We recommend applying the deodorant on a daily basis.

Can I use the deodorant on sensitive skin?

Yes you can. Our formula is developed for all skin types. We’ve tested the deodorant on people with sensitive skin, and they’ve all provided positive feedback. Most people are either allergic or sensitive to aluminium, alcohol or perfume. Our deodorant doesn’t contain any of these ingredients.


As any other products, if your skin gets irritated, stop using the product.

Why should I buy this deodorant?

Because you’ll not regret it. We’ve spent more than a year developing a formula that actually works and is good for your body and the planet. It’s all-natural, vegan, high-quality ingredients, works on sensitive skin, free from aluminium, alcohol and parabens, perfume free, and totally effective but still gentle on your skin. And as the first player, our packaging is made from 100% recycled ocean plastic. Fully recycled and recyclable. 


The formula is developed for our customers, and tested by more than one hundred volunteers. We would very much like to hear your feedback, no matter if you love it or have some suggestions for improvement. Email us at hello@relevantcos.com.

Does the deodorant contain any perfume?

No, our deodorant is perfume free. It basically smells of “nothing”. 

For how long does it last?

It depends on how often you use it. However, for daily use of normal consumption with 2-4 rolls it lasts 6-8 weeks. 

What are your tips to stay odourless?

Tip 1: Good body hygiene is elementary to staying odourless. No products can prevent odour-causing bacteria from ever growing on your skin. Regularly wash your underarms with soap to remove leftovers and bacteria. 


Tip 2: Use our deodorant on a regular basis to let its mix of moisture absorbing and antimicrobial ingredients combat odour-causing bacteria. The amount you apply depends on your level of activity and how often you take a shower. Find the routine that works for you. 


Tip 3: Your clothes may contain old bacteria and smell. Our deodorant cannot combat this smell, only an overload of perfume to mask it will do the trick (don’t do that by the way). Make sure your clothes are as fresh as possible.

Why is your deodorant better than other natural deodorants?

We’ve spent one year developing the formula, covering more than 25 iterations to improve its effectiveness. More than one hundred volunteers have tested it and provided highly positive feedback. Try it to find out!

Is your deodorant for everyone?

Yes, the deodorant is developed for all skin types and can be used by him and her. 

I’m pregnant, can I use it?

Of course you can. The formula is developed for everyone, and only contains safe and clean ingredients.

Is your formula protected?

Yes, our formula is protected. 

Ingredients

What are the ingredients in the deodorant?

Our protected formula only consists of 12 scientifically proven ingredients. We’ve combined a mix of moisture absorbing, antimicrobial and active ingredients to kill odor-causing bacteria, and to ensure your skin flora is in balance and your underarms stay healthy and fresh. 


Our product philosophy is that each ingredient should be effective and gentle to your body and the planet. That’s why we only handpick the best natural and vegan ingredients, all certified and sourced from responsible producers. Because less is more.

Does the deodorant contain talc?

No, we don’t use talc.

Does the deodorant contain phthalates?

No, we don’t use phthalates.

Does the deodorant contain microplastic?

No, our product doesn’t contain microplastic.

Is the deodorant tested on animals?

We never test our formulas or ingredients on animals. Since 2013, European legislation has prohibited animal testing for cosmetic products, or ingredients intended for cosmetic purposes. Because our product is made in Denmark, you can be sure we don’t test on animals.

Are all the ingredients natural?

Yes, all our ingredients are naturally derived and Ecocert approved.

Are all the ingredients vegan?

Yes, all our ingredients are vegan.

Are your ingredients certified?

We only use high quality ingredients that are good for your body and our planet. All ingredients are Ecocert approved. 

Are the ingredients organic?

At this moment our formula doesn’t contain organic ingredients. However, we’re constantly working on improving our formula, including effective organic ingredients. Our ambition is to add organic ingredients in the next version.

Packaging

What material do you use for your packaging?

Our deodorant consists of three parts; cap, bottle and housing. The cap is made from 100% recycled ocean plastic (r-polypropylene), the bottle from 100% recycled ocean plastic (r-polyethylene), while the housing is made from virgin plastic (polyethylene). 


Due to legislation, it’s not possible to produce the housing in recycled material.  


All materials are fully recyclable and considered among the sustainable material types according to the European strategy for plastic in a circular economy 2018. 


The reason for not using the same material for the cap and bottle is due to their material properties. For instance, if both parts were made in PP, its lack of strength creates microplastic from the screw thread that eventually ends on your skin or in your drain. Not sustainable, right?

How do I dispose the deodorant after use?

Simply separate cap and bottle, and dispose them into the conventional plastic bin. Please also check your local disposal process.

How do I dispose the cardboard box?

Our cardboard box is FSC certified, 100% biodegradable and recyclable. Simply dispose it into the cardboard bin. 

Why do you not use bioplastic?

Is bioplastic (think sugarcane or other biomass products) the future of sustainable packaging? We simply don’t know. No one knows. 


At this moment there’s not enough evidence to conclude that a switch to bioplastic would make sense. Bioplastic could have negative effects by having to use agricultural land for plastic production rather than for feed or food production, as well as deforestation. In addition, having mixtures of bio-based and oil-based plastic can adversely affect recycling opportunities. There’s also a need for more knowledge about the actual degradation time of bioplastic and what it degrades to.


On top of this, we’re not interested in producing more virgin plastic (which bioplastic is) than necessary. With our commitment to use ocean plastic, we not only help preventing more plastic from entering the oceans, we also use plastic material that are fully recyclable and sustainable for a circular economy.
