Does using your fingers to apply deodorant seem strange to you? If you are looking to make the change to finger-pot deodorants, but you question the application, here are some points we've considered as to why changing our thinking around these conventions is a commitment to a clean and green lifestyle.
Get in Touch
The natural ingredients in the Sola Coconut Deodorant means that it can change consistency with weather fluctuations. In warmer weather, the natural deodorant may be softer to the touch, whereas in cooler environments, it may need some coaxing with the back of your finger nail or if you prefer, a small spoon.
With conventional anti-perspirant and deodorant sticks, we prohibit the body from sweating by blocking the pores. Many people have commented on how conventional deodorants leave a film on the body that is hard to remove. Every time you apply your natural deodorant with your fingertips, remember the good you are doing your body. You are allowing your skin a chance to sweat and detox naturally.
Reduce Plastic, Re-use Your Tin
Sola Skincare aims to reduce our ecological imprint by choosing the greenest option. The number one reason we chose a tin for our Coconut Deodorant to reduce the use of plastic. While we have looked at the option of having a cardboard and compostable push-top deodorant, the cost is prohibitive at the moment and we want to keep our deodorant affordable so we can attract more people to the non-toxic deodorant alternative.
We’ve all heard the 3-Rs--reduce, reuse, and recycle. When we commit to an eco-friendly lifestyle, we find creative ways to follow this saying. Once you have finished the Coconut Deodorant in your tin, we recommend that you wash and re-use it for other purposes--something you can't do with the conventional stick packaging.
Here are 5 (Sola-tested!) ways to re-use your tins:
