We love it when companies join us in the sustainable Packaging Revolution! Let us introduce you to Noniko, the first and only deodorant to use ZERO PLASTIC in their products or packaging.
(And don’t miss their special 20% off offer, below).
We founded Plaine Products to provide natural, quality products in sustainable packaging, making it easier for everyone to use a little less plastic in their lives. Most bathrooms are filled with plastic bottles that will only be used once before they head to the garbage or recycling can. While recycling plastic is always a good idea, experts agree that it isn’t a solution. Only 5 – 10% of plastic is reclaimed for recycling. Even when it is recycled, if it can even be recycled, most plastic still eventually ends up in a landfill or in our lakes and oceans.
Noniko also recognized this problem and set out to offer its deodorant in reusable, recyclable packaging. Their cases and inserts are made of 100% stainless steel, with the case yours for life and the refills reusable. Like our aluminum packaging, stainless steel is more likely to be recycled and can be infinitely renewed.
We recently sat down, virtually of course, with Noniko and asked them to share a little more about themselves so we could get to know them better. Based on what we’ve learned we think you’ll love them as much as we do.
Who They Are
At Noniko, we’re raising the standard in how body care is defined. Handcrafted in small batches in our San Diego studio, it is our mission to deliver you truly natural, effective ingredients in sustainable packaging. We take pride in our products and our planet, and you’ll see this reflected in everything we do. It is our belief that you shouldn’t have to sacrifice efficacy or luxury in order to have a product that’s natural, clean, and responsible. We acknowledge there is a connection between the body and the earth. We are creating harmony in this relationship by harnessing the power of nature while respecting and caring for our planet. We applied the same mentality to our packaging, because we won’t settle for anything less.
We are a women owned and run company based in San Marcos, CA. All of our deodorants are handmade in small batches in our studio. We also have a conscious subscription deodorant model- your deodorant refill gets delivered straight to your doorstep every 3 months, and all you have to do is pop your old refill into the prepaid packaging and it gets sent back to us to be put back in use! Our deodorant is 100% customer satisfaction guarantee and our stainless steel case is guaranteed for life!
A Little History
After tirelessly searching for a natural deodorant that worked, we still came up empty-handed. So naturally, we decided to take matters into our own hands! After perfecting our formula and mastering our 3 fan-favorite scents, we sought out sustainable packaging. We conducted an exhaustive search of the packaging industry and continually found only options that compromised esthetics, user experience, or worst of all were not authentically sustainable.
That’s when we decided to go all the way to team up with Verity Packaging and house our deodorant in a plastic-free, reusable case that has a lifetime guarantee. This case is literally yours for life. We recognize that everything we do has an impact on our planet. It is our mission to minimize this impact and reflect it in everything we do. We are proud to be the first-ever deodorant in a plastic-free, reusable case.
At Noniko, we’re committed to demanding better both for you and the planet. That’s why we’re proud that we’ve partnered up with 1% for the Planet. (Plaine Products is also a member!) When you shop with us, 1% of our revenues go towards organizations that protect our planet-including organizations that fight against plastic waste.
We also operate on a Circular business model. The stainless steel case is yours for life and when you’re done with your refill, you send it back to us where we put it through a validated cleaning process. The refill insert is then put back into the rotation for use! All of this is delivered to your door and hassle-free. We are partnering with Verity to bring our other products back into the fold – this time in plastic-free options.
