This is NOT the Bedrock birthday update I wanted to write.
Before shipping me the latest Freshstick batch, my lab alerted me that something was wrong. Every all body deodorant had leaked and seeped through the paper tube.
I had them send it all anyway, thinking I could salvage it all with new paper tubes.
I spent a beautiful fall weekend pushing out 700 zinc deodorant tubes into the trash. So grateful these are zero waste compostable deodorant tubes!
I found the deodorant crumbling in my hands and knew it wasn’t a storage temperature issue - an ingredient or something did not bind.
Sure enough, the lab confirmed later that it was a compounding error and they will redo the batch.
That puts us out of our calming skincare set and our gentle deodorant until 2024.
If you are in a season of set back, I can relate!
Dig your heels in and as Freshstick would do, keep pushing.
