We give our customers choice over product format and equally choice over packaging too. Each new packaging solution will always have had careful consideration to suit the user, the product and importantly its impact on the environment, so more refillable, plastic free and sustainably
packaged options are available.
Developing products with packaging that can be reused & refilled is a key part of our sustainability focus. We strongly believe that if energy has
gone into producing an item, then we ought to reuse that as many times as we can, so we develop them in such a way that they can be refilled at home.
We also consider how much energy consumption is associated with the production of the packing. For example, we have recently seen a rise in the use of aluminium bottles as these can be recycled and repurposed, but aluminium manufacture is highly energy-intensive, despite the high recycled content of the material. With this in mind, we prefer to use recycled plastic for our products, with refill options, over aluminium, due to
its lower overall environmental footprint.
We were one of the first companies to pioneer deodorant refills back in 2013. Since launch, we have sold enough of our spray refills to have saved the equivalent of half a million individual plastic bottles from being used.
In 2020, we switched to more sustainable packaging for these best-selling Natural Deodorant Sprays. All our sprays are now packaged in bottles which use 50% Post-Consumer Recycled (PCR) plastic and 50% sugarcane-based biopolymer, to help reduce our impact on the environment, with 500ml and 1 litre refill options available, saving money and plastic.
