This is the best natural deodorant that I have tried! It tends to get crumbly and messy towards the end of the stick but it's still worth it. :)

Continues to be the best thing I've ever found.
Balancing what is absorbed with what is released into our world.
...In both the literal sense (what we put into our bodies and what we dispose of as trash) and figuratively (how we internalize and react to our surroundings), The Rex Apothecary is constantly seeking to optimize and minimize. Quality over Quantity, to be cliche.
Organic, ethically harvested ingredients are our staples, and reusable, renewable packaging our vehicles. We are currently steering away from packaging our popular Pitty Party Deodorant in the common plastic twist up tube. But why? That's just how deodorant is, it comes in a plastic twist up tube, right? Unfortunately, even though our plastic tubes are made of recycled material, it is not clear whether the twist up dial can be recycled or not once the tube is empty. On top of that, many cities don't even offer curbside recycling pickup. Overall, when you look at the deodorant selection at your grocery store, then multiply that by the number of stores in your town, then multiply ::that:: by the number of towns in the U.S... we're looking at enough plastic already.
While shifting our normal routine can be daunting, if we ask ourselves why we have them in the first place it is sometimes easier. Are we used to using a foamy paste in a plastic tube to clean our teeth because commercials have been telling us to for the last fifty years? Why dilute something with useless and toxic ingredients when you can strip it down to the most effective few. That's where we come in.
Our products work hard. Ask our repeat customers. Unlike commercials, our testimonies are not paid actors. We aren't here to ::tell:: you what an ingredient supposedly does. We research each one before testing it so that we can ::show:: you what works. Most of it is not new information. Many of the recipes we pull from have been tried and true for decades. We simply perfect them.

It is the buyers responsibility to notify the seller of ANY and ALL allergies or sensitivities prior to purchase. Special measures may need to be taken to prevent contamination with allergens so please do not assume that just because it isn't an ingredient that the facility is free of all allergens.
Due to the nature of our products, we can not be held responsible for items that may melt if left on a doorstep or mailbox in the heat. We ask that if you cannot be present to receive your order, that you make other arrangements with your post to pick it up from their temperature controlled facilities to ensure you get your product in the same condition as it left our Portland studio.
Items containing coconut oil as an ingredient will be temperature sensitive. It turns liquid at 76F. If the temperature of your home is higher than this these products will be softer and you may need to store them in the refrigerator all or part of the year. If a product does, in fact, melt, it can be restored to full functionality by placing it in the refrigerator for approximately one hour. Ingredients are adjusted seasonally to partially account for this variation.
Use these natural products immediately. Store in the refrigerator to prolong shelf life.
