Unilever embraces metals to launch its first refillable deodorant

Wednesday 14th September 2022

Theatre :  Technology, Innovation and R&D 


We’re on a mission to help reduce global waste. From using alternative materials to creating packaging innovations, we’re determined to transform the way we all think about the products we buy. Because, for lasting change, we need to shift our mindsets: buying less but better, and being inspired by the times that existed before our ‘disposable’ culture, when the things we bought were made to last. To help accelerate the global beauty industry’s progress towards addressing plastic waste, we’ve created our first refillable deodorant to help transform your daily routine.

The things we buy for life are often the things we treasure the most – that’s why we’ve dedicated two years to creating our first ever refillable deodorant that’s beautiful, as well as sustainable. For one small object, it represents so much: it’s taken so long to perfect its design using minimal materials to create something timeless that you’ll never tire of. It can be used over and over again, so you really can buy once, refill for life*, and transform your daily deodorant use.

It comes with a stainless steel reusable case, designed to last for life

To fulfil its promise of ‘buy once, refill for life’, the beautiful and reusable case is made from super durable stainless steel, specially designed to stand the test of time – and encourage you to buy less, but better.
