Your case can be washed and is also dishwasher safe.
Definitely DON'T THROW IT AWAY!! We don’t want your outer cases to be recycled either. We want them used and reused. If they break for any reason, contact us and we will get them back to be repaired - just like the army, we aim to repair and reuse, not throw equipment away.

You need only one of our solid, hardwearing deodorant cases that can be used over and over again. They are smooth to touch, never dent and are happy rolling around in your gym and travel bag. The cases are suitable to put in the dishwasher, while saving 8-12 deodorant cases a year on average to plastic landfill.
The elephant in the room - but the case is plastic??? Sure is. We have made organic and natural skincare since 2007 and the right packaging choice for this is a huge part. We are well practiced at it and have used many options in our ranges - glass, aluminium, PET plastics, bioplastics. Clearly, we started this journey believing the case would never be plastic, we went straight to cardboard tubes. However, we are also academics and research everything to the hilt and if you are really willing to take the time and learn, then it is never that simple. All the marketing of “deodorant cases made entirely from plants” or aluminum being better for the world is frankly just that - marketing.
Kirstie explains this deodorant case transition through paper, aluminum, bioplastics, post-consumer plastic and how there is never black and white answers in the pursuit to stop excess packaging - only grey and an awful lot of marketing crap and consumer misperception.

Paper: Your deodorant refill arrives in a beautiful very specialist paper wrap, that protects the deodorant but can also be put straight into the paper stream or compost.
Wheel->Loop Back: When you finish the refill there is a small PET plastic wheel on the base- it looks like a Trivia Pursuits cheese wheel! Please keep and collect these and we will send you a special bag to get them back to us, at no cost to you so we can loop them back into production. They are widely recycled if required.
Our founder Luke spent over 20 years playing professional, sweaty rugby. He became a quite expert on male sweat! Meanwhile Kirstie, his co-founder, was becoming a spa and skincare expert. They both love teaching about how your skin and body works. Read here about ‘How to control sweat ??’
