Here’s a real mind blower: did you know that recycling just ONE aluminium tube saves enough energy to power a TV for 3 hours? This is because producing recycled aluminium consumes only 5% of the energy used to make new aluminium. In fact, aluminium is one of the most recyclable materials out there. It can be recycled infinitely without degrading its quality.

When it comes to formulating our deodorant & skin products there are lot of things to take into account, but our #1 priority is product safety. Sure, it's great to use natural ingredients. And it's even better if the products get you sensational results. But none of that matters if the product isn't good for you.
Way back in 2015 when Woohoo Body first started, our very first deodorant was a deodorant paste While there are loads of folks who love our pastes, some people prefer an application where you don’t have to get deodorant on your fingers or touch your armpits. Enter our deodorant sticks!!
Reading product labels should be easy, right? So why does it sometimes feel like labels are written in an entirely different language? If you find yourself staring at product labels wondering how in the world you’re supposed to understand them without a science degree, you’re not alone!
Sadly, like most other industries, the personal care market has a pretty significant negative impact on the environment. This is primarily because the bulk of products come in single use, hard-to-recycle plastic. However some brands are saying “budge over plastic, we’re opting for bamboo.” Others are swapping out certain materials (like single-use plastic) and nasty ingredients (petrochemicals and palm oil, for example) for more sustainable alternatives. Here are a few sustainable swaps we are totally all for this Plastic Free July (and beyond).
If you’re wondering why everyone has been carrying on about plastic lately, we’re here to let you in on the secret. It’s because it’s Plastic Free July - the perfect time to do a little check and see if there are any ways you could reduce the amount of single use plastic in your life.
The cosmetics industry is far from perfect, and (according to us), packaging is its biggest shortcoming. The unfortunate truth though is that there’s no perfect cosmetic packaging out there for skincare products like ours, and regardless of the packaging we use we’re always going to have an impact on the Earth. It’s just up to us to minimise that impact.
In our quest to be as eco-friendly as possible here at Woohoo Body we’ve had to make a couple of compromises. So today we thought we’d have a chat about the “why” behind our cardboard packaging, and give you a few tips and tricks to help you get the hang of it.
