“I am proud of our accomplishments in manufacturing plant-based products,” says Yield Growth Chief Executive Officer Penny White. “The timing is right for a high quality men’s plant-based wellness line, and we are pleased to be able to manufacture the highest quality products for Kingdom Brands.”
Kingdom Brands retained Yield Growth to manufacture the deodorants, which is part of a full plant-based men’s wellness collection under the Antler brand. Yield Growth completed production of Antler Deodorant as a white label for Kingdom Brands this month. This long-lasting, all natural, plant-based, aluminium-free deodorant is especially well suited for sensitive skin, is packaged to comply with U.S. and Canadian retail regulations, and can be sold directly to consumers via e-commerce.
There are no parabens, sulphates or aluminum in the Antler deodorant, which is vegan friendly and gluten free. The ingredients include a mix of hemp seed oil, coconut oil and shea butter base, which are all rich in fatty acid. Also incorporated are vitamins and antioxidants known to keep the skin moisturized and hydrated for a soothing and softer skin texture, mixed with sodium bicarbonate, a natural and safe mineral to neutralize odor causing bacteria.
According to a report by Future Market Insights, the global aluminium-free deodorant market is estimated at around US$1.2 billion in 2019, and is expected to grow at a CAGR of nearly 10% from 2019 to 2029.
