Our biodegradable deodorant tubes are constructed by hand and so there are some variances in them. The push pop style doesn't have the retracting functionality that a plastic tube does, and it does take some getting used to. The tubes are a new product technology and they definitely take a little more TLC than plastic ones but it's a small price to pay for making less plastic waste. Did you know that conventional plastic deodorant tubes can't be easily recycled?
When pushing up, it's our inclination to push from the center. However, we've found if you push from the inner edge of the bottom disc and then push from the center, you're able to control the amount that comes out of the tube more easily. See below :)
One of our co-founders, Tara, put together a DIY Deodorant Workshop hosted by the Detox Market in Toronto, Canada. She shared valuable information about what kind of ingredients make for great deodorants, and how those ingredients work so your armpits can do their thing.
