Eco-Friendly Product Life Cycle
Mineralized deodorant is composed of minerals found in nature and are already part of the environment. There are no additional additives or chemicals.
Using simple and abundant ingredients gives us the best chance to avoid unforeseen complications from using more complex oil-derived chemicals. It also avoids polluting these petrochemicals into our water and air.
Further, we already require Mineralized's ingredients in our diet. Since our bodies require calcium and magnesium, there is little chance that they are bad for us in the long term.
However, we do NOT require many of the common petrochemicals, of which the long-term health and environmental effects are unknown at best.
We engineered a product that is free of the petrochemical industry. However, we still use petrochemical energy sources in the supply chain (for transportation and production), which we can't yet avoid. It is a struggle to figure out ways around that industry, and we believe it is worth trying. Mineralized is our first step in that direction.
We will continue to look for ways to make Mineralized even more eco-friendly.
Increasingly, many recyclable products are not ultimately recycled. So to avoid this, we engineered a fully reusable product ecosystem. We offer refills that are packaged in biodegradable containers. No more throwing away plastic deodorant holders, no contributing to the microplastics problem.
The entire Mineralized deodorant package weighs only a few ounces, making transportation cheaper and better for the environment.
