Cat Out of the Bag: Our New Deodorant Stick

What was that? MMT has a new stick deodorant?

Now, what you’ve all been waiting for– we made a Stick Deodorant! Applying deodorant with your fingers is a super thorough method of application, but we understand that it’s not always a good time for an impromptu pit massage. We’ve been working for two years to figure out how to bring it to you in stick form. The challenge? We wanted to avoid a plastic tube and we wanted to bring you something gentle that works.

Enter, the biodegradable push tube. Yes, you heard correctly. The packaging is indeed biodegradable–it will compost in a year! It can also be recycled with your cardboard. Hello, reduced carbon footprint!

We also learned a lot from our Baking Soda Free Cream formula and from your feedback! We know that you need something that won’t irritate your underarms and works for the whole day. So, even though we did put a touch of baking soda in this recipe, magnesium is still the queen here, so this stick has a similar formulation to our soda-free cream. Before we launched, we had our most sensitive-pitted friends, family and loyal customers give it a test drive. They used it throughout the summer of 2015, provided feedback and we tweaked the recipe until it was “just right.”

So, without further ado…

We bring you a synergy of potent plant and mineral powders with sweet smelling and mighty essential oils that will keep you smelling oh-so fresh. Available in two unique scents, the Lavender Bergamot smells sweet and floral with a squeeze of zesty citrus. The Lemon Eucalyptus smells fresh and clean with a spicy hint of clove.

Skin conditioning, organic plant oils and butters moisturize and soothe even the most sensitive skin. Not only does it work, but all of the ingredients are from pure plant and mineral sources–and it’s aluminum free. Now isn’t that a laundry list of radness?

Are you ready? Try it here!
