A Natural Deodorant That Really Works

When customers talk, essano listens, that's why they have created a new natural deodorant following a number of customer requests. Dedicated to creating natural skin, hair and body products that care for people and the planet, the new roll-on deodorant is not only effective, it allows the body to naturally sweat without any odour, and is better for the environment.

"Once our team finalised the formula, we could have launched using virgin plastic imported from China, instead we decided to spend more time and money to work with a NZ supplier and be the first deodorant in NZ to use 100 percent recycled plastic," said Shane Young, co-founder of essano.

"After trialling natural ingredients from around the world, essano's on-site chemists discovered four new-technology, natural-actives proven to effectively destroy and inhibit the bacteria that cause odours. We then put it to the test with women from around NZ."

In the battle to be free from body odour, it’s important to note that it’s not actually sweat that makes the smell; it’s when sweat comes into contact with the natural bacteria on skin.

Up until now, some natural deodorants have just tried to mask bad smells with another stronger (often polarising) smell, or used baking soda (bicarbonate soda) to dry the skin. On the other hand, essano has used exciting new technology that works by gently neutralising the odour causing bacteria under your arms, for up to 8 hours.

Available in three variants: Lily Flower & Chamomile, Mandarin & Aloe Vera and Fragrance-Free.
