Deodorant Refill

Natural, aluminium free, stick deodorant for your refillable case to save single-use plastic.

Regular price £17.00 Sale price £15.00
Skin type: 3 different levels of deodorant strength to adapt to your skin sensitivity and sweat levels!
How it Works: Save single-use plastic by only ever buying our special paper-wrapped refills. Choose your natural, aluminium free, stick deodorant for your refillable case (you must already have a case to use these!)

1. This is your deodorant refill;: you must already have an outer case to put this in.

2. Choose your Strength: Level 1) Active = our deodorants created for those who suffer with BO and rely heavily on deodorant. Also, for those who are transitioning from an anti- perspirant. Look out for the yellow active sticker. Level 2) Core = All of the active options without sodium bicarbonate/ baking soda for those who have allergies to it, don’t require such super strength and for younger, teen armpits. Level 3) Sensitive & Unfragranced = for very sensitive skins.

3. Choose your Fragrance: Pick your favourite or try a new one. All fragrances can go in your outer case.

When & How do I use?

Use every morning after washing.

How much do I use?

2-3 swipes per pit. Don’t go crazy. If you are getting white marks on clothes or are getting through your refill in under 8 weeks, then you are probably using too much.

Proverb refills are a super-sized 70g/2.4 Fl.Oz to be more sustainable with less packaging and less frequent shipping. Our products are very concentrated, sometimes less is more.

To Refill

1.Remove the empty cradle and recycle
2.Simply pop in the new deodorant refill and twist the base of your case till the deodorant retreats all the way back down into it.
3.You can swop flavours or stick to your favourite

Free from Parabens, petroleum, PEGs, propylene glycol, artificial fragrance, GM modified ingredients, SLS, Gluten
Natural & organic? Entirely natural with organic ingredients. Most brands would happily say 100%. Proverb means truth. All emulsions made in the UK have to have a preservative. We use the organic certification allowed preservative dehydroacetic acid. Although you are allowed to label it natural it isn’t truly. There is 0.6% in the bottle as legally required.

Our dedication to natural & organic Greenwashing brands pretending to be natural, is rife and only getting worse. We will only ever tell you the truth about our ingredients, the sources and which elements are natural, organic or the legal required preservatives. We formulate with painstaking dedication to this mantra for your health but also as it ensures the elite grown version of each ingredient.

Made in England? Yes, formulated and made in England where our headquarters are. ingredients are sourced sustainably from around the world. Lifefuelled humans using the products globally.

In vitro & in vivo lab proven actives? Yes, we have selected many active ingredients with strong in vitro and in vivo testing results for the individual ingredients. Combining this with researching the source, origins and ethics of each ingredient.

‘Clean’ brands tend to be younger and newer to market and thus don’t usually invest the large amount of funds needed to clinically trial products to prove results in an independent lab. Not us; we are firmly committed to do this as the clean, organic and natural sector has to prove it works. As we grow the brand, we will grow the investment into clinical testing as a priority.

Believe it or not you can do clinical deodorant trials, but we are not at the stage of being able to invest in these yet. They actually do it by sniffing armpits- what a job!

Proverb Consumer Trials: In our pre-launch testing we sent out over 500 products to more than 200 participants to get real life feedback on how the product was working. We were blown away by the results with a 97% satisfaction rating and 93% reporting that the product worked all day.

The deodorant should glide on well. If you feel your armpits once it has dried there is a thin light powder coating, not something you feel unless you touch with your fingertips.

The Proverb scents are subtle and clearly natural, but they last all day. When you switch from mainstream to natural deodorant you can go through an ‘armpit adjustment phase’. Your body gets rid of the toxins built up in the skin plus your sweat glands have to adapt to not being blocked by ingredients like aluminium. You can feel like you sweat more and not smell great.

This does not happen to everyone. If it does it can take up to 14- 30 days for your body to regulate itself. Make sure you drink lots of water, wear natural fibres, wash your armpits every day and apply your deodorant more frequently. Be patient, don’t give up on the process. Your body is insanely clever and will find a natural balance.

If you would like samples of Proverb skincare added to your deodorant order please ask. These come in our home compostable sachets so there is no plastic wastage.



THE CASE

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. They are suitable to put in the dishwasher and on average will save you adding 8-12 deodorant cases a year 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. Read More.

THE REFILL

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.



We get rave reviews about the aromas-you can smell our spa product and treatment background!

Wild Mint & Eucalyptus is blended with geranium and a dash of lavender. Invigorating, a ‘wake up and focus’ aroma and perfect for the morning or a hard day ahead.

Coconut & Tonka is a gentler smell. The coconut is not blended with sweet vanilla which is very typical in coconut fragrance. Instead, you have some coffee, apricot and apple. Combined with the darker oriental tonka smell, you get an interesting coconut combination.

Unfragranced does not smell, but if you have sensitive unhappy armpits, they will thank you for it!

The deodorant is smooth to apply. If you feel your armpits once it has dried there is a thin light powder coating, not something you feel unless you touch with your fingertips.
