THREEANGL Fights Stank B.O. & Plastic Waste
By: Casha Doemland
It’s summertime, the temperature is nearing 100 degrees, and your B.O. is clearing rows on the train to work because you can't find a deodorant that doesn't generate pit rash.
And that’s where underarm upstarts THREEANGL comes in. The all-natural, vegan deodorant was founded by Pierre Chan and Alexandre Corriveau early this year with the three major core values: health, environment and innovation.
First, THREEANGL claims to work with all types of sensitive skin due to the fact that it's made entirely of coconut oil, shea butter, vitamin E and essential oils. Unlike Secret, Speed Stick and Old Spice, it's also free of aluminum, parabens and synthetic fragrances that are known to cause underarm irritations or are even linked to Alzheimer's and breast cancer.
In addition to being beneficial to your health, the company pledges to do no harm to the environment with a completely biodegradable container. "THREEANGL’s plant-based bioplastic container is made from leftover plant material coming from American farms, such as hemp and corn,” says Chan. “It degrades rapidly within few months in the composter, or within 2 years in a landfill."
THREEANGL was able to achieve its level of sustainability with the innovation of their team of engineers and designers, which ultimately developed a deodorant that leaves no trace on the Earth and keeps your pits happy. Together, these three core values have not only inspired the name but logo consisting of three back to back to back obtuse angles.
You can currently back this project on Kickstarter and receive rewards that range from value packs and buy one, get one free deals, to a limited-edition year of the dog tube as well as special edition rate memberships. Members not only receive a rate of $7.50 per unit for the first two years, but they also get exclusive offers on future products like soaps, shampoos, toothbrushes and face creams.
