SOME LIGHT ON YOUR
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ANTIPERSPIRANT AND DEODORANT?
Antiperspirant works by temporary plugging your sweat ducts. It prevents you from sweating using harsh chemicals like an aluminum compound.
Deodorant eliminates odor-causing bacteria and absorbs moisture from sweat; in our case without any harmful chemicals.
IS PAPER COSMETICS A DEODORANT OR AN ANTIPERSPIRANT?
It is a deodorant. Paper Cosmetics eliminates odor-causing bacteria with simple, safe baking soda and natural coconut butter. Tapiocha Starch absorbs moisture and keeps you fresh. Our deodorant offers protection but doesn’t prevent you from sweating. Exactly how your body intended it to be.
IS THERE A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DEODORANT FOR MEN AND WOMEN?
All our deodorants are unisex. The ingredients are the same but some scents might be more suited to men, while other’s are more feminine.
IS PAPER COSMETICS TESTED ON ANIMALS?
No. We love animals that’s why we don´t test anything on them.
HOW DO I USE THE DEODORANT?
It’s simple. Think of a Popsicle! Slightly push the bottom up, hold the deodorant under your arm for a second or two and apply like a regular deodorant stick. Done.
HOW LONG DOES ONE DEODORANT LAST?
Of course it depends on your usage. On average it should last 2-3 months when using daily.
IS PAPER COSMETICS DEODORANT MADE WITH ALUMINUM?
No, we do not use aluminum. Ever.
IS PAPER COSMETICS DEODORANT MADE WITH PETROLEUM- BASED INGREDIENTS?
Yuck. No way.
WILL THE TEXTURE MELT IN HIGH TEMPERATURES?
Since we do not use chemical stabilizers, long exposure over 115F can soften or melt the formula. Try to keep it out of direct sunlight and in a dry and cool place.
WHERE IS PAPER COSMETICS MADE?
We are proudly made in sunny Southern California. Our deodorants are filled using 100% solar energy.
Does Paper Cosmetics contain any kind of phthalates?
No, we are not using any phthalates in our deodorant or packaging.
Why is Paper Cosmetics using envelopes for shipping?
We try to reduce waste. Shipping in boxes produces considerably more trash.
Our envelopes are from recycled material, are recyclable, compostable and biodegrade.
Is the Paper Cosmetics deodorant tube 100% biodegradable?
Yes! Our tubes are biodegradable. They are made from 99,98 % FSC certified paper and a super thin layer of PLA membrane (cornstarch), all of which is biodegradable.
Is the packaging recyclable?
Yes. You can simply throw the empty tube in the blue recycling bin.
Do you use any toxic petroleum based inks?
Absolutely not. We only use environmentally friendly soy-based inks on all our paper tubes.
How is Paper Cosmetics giving back?
We donate 1% of our revenue to the Ancient Tree Archive. Planting Redwood and Sequoia trees can actually help reduce or even reverse climate change. Learn more about these amazing people and the project here: https://www.ancienttreearchive.org/
