I wanted to make a deodorant that is healthy for my body and the environment. This cardboard package is perfect for what I wanted, so I bought a bunch of them. Deodorant is so good that even my boss ordered one for himself ;)
$2.30 (Incl. GST)
Made from cardboard these are a great alternative for those wishing to reduce plastic use. The inside is coated to allow it to resist oils, however, it is not suitable for water-based formulations.
The simple push up action makes it ideal for oils based sticks and balms.
Note: Please make sure you have trailed your formulations before making big batches, this type of tube requires a very hard stick/balm and different formulations can make pushing the base up more difficult, particularly in cooler weather. Gently warming the the outside before application can help resolve this issue.
