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!

In Conversation with My Grandfather

March 23, 2017

It's been 75 years since President Roosevelt enacted the executive order which allowed the U.S. military to exclude any and all persons from an area after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.  Although no single racial or ethnic group was mentioned in the order, hundreds of thousands of Japanese-Americans were forced out of their homes and moved into camps.

I recently interviewed my grandfather about what life was like as a Japanese-American post World War II.  I hoped to gain insight into a part of my heritage which I’ll never experience first hand but am saddened by.  It's impossible not to see parallels being drawn between the recent travel ban and past U.S. anti-Asian policies.  I can't help but feel anxiety for how the current administration seems to be playing to the fears of a bigoted populism and what can be done to counter it.

The fragrant oils in the rosemary leaf also dissolve excess and clogging sebum in hair follicles to balance oil production without over-drying. Make your own herbal tea hair rinse with fresh rosemary or apply hair oil with the essential oil.
