Dirty Hippie Deodorant by Nature Nouveau: Going Organic
Organic wholesome natural deodorant made with essential oils, and packaged in eco-friendly packaging.
What is Dirty Hippie?
I started making my own deodorant because I was not happy with synthetics, greenwashing, and outrageous prices on "natural" products at markets. I have been selling natural deodorant at farmers' markets and local shops for the past year, and feeling the love from my community. Now that this hippie knows what it takes to make an awesome product, I'm ready for quality to go mainstream. I'm launching this project so I can invest in eco-friendly compostable packaging and fully organic ingredients.
"Dirty Hippie" deodorant is made with: organic lavender essential oil, organic patchouli essential oil, organic coconut oil, organic shea butter, organic arrowroot powder, baking soda, candelilla wax, magnesium oil. This project will also fund organic lavender and patchouli deodorant.
Risks and challenges
One of the biggest challenges in making natural body care products is sourcing quality ingredients. Fortunately, I've researched my ingredient and packaging sources, have sampled their products, and look forward to stocking up fast. My project shipping dates account for possible snail mail or restocking delays.
After a few test batches with my new organic ingredients and earth-friendly packaging, I'll start shipping orders to my backers this fall. I intend to be done with the project before the holidays. In the event that the kickstarter universe loves natural deodorant as much as I do (lots!), I'll enlist help to get orders to backers fast.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
