Finder Green Fave: Zero Co Deodorant


This antiperspirant deodorant is vegan and comes with a reusable bottle and refill that makes it free from single-use plastic.

Pretty much all deodorant has packaging that will end up in your recycling bin or garbage at the end of its life.

That's not the case with Zero Co's new roll-on deodorant. Like all of Zero Co's products, there is a "forever" bottle and refills so you can keep using it as long as you want.

It's also scented with essential oils including patchouli, clove leaf, vetiver, orange and eucalyptus.

What makes Zero Co Deodorant green?

This deodorant comes in a bottle made from recycled plastic sourced from the ocean, beach and landfill. It also funds large-scale ocean and beach clean-ups that you can trace through the Zero Co website.

The actual deodorant is cruelty-free, palm oil free and doesn't contain phthalates (which research has shown could be harmful for our health over time).

It's naturally scented and has a clear ingredient list. This includes aluminium, which is a key ingredient for making deodorants antiperspirant.

Some people worry that having aluminium in deodorant could harm us, but the Cancer Council (and others) have said there's no proof of that.

Tip: There are other natural deodorants that are aluminium-free if you want to avoid it and don't mind sweat. We've even reviewed 2 for Finder Green Fave: Sukin Natural Deodorant and Caudalie Vinofresh Natural Stick Deodorant.

Zero Co Deodorant is also designed to be waste-free. You just pour the refill pack into the Forever Bottle and roll on as needed.

Your order also comes with a postage-paid return envelope, so you can send them back to Zero Co to be filled up and used again.

Plus, Zero Co was a finalist for Green Beauty Brand of the Year category in the 2022 Finder Green Awards, and won the title of Green Cleaning Brand of the Year.

Where can I get it?

The Zero Co Deodorant Combo is $14.99 through the website and comes with both a bottle and a refill. You can also buy a Forever Bottle ($6.99) and a 100ml Deodorant Refill ($9) separately.
