Mini-rant about quinoa deodrant

Yes. A deodorant, made from grain.

A grain that, due to Western demand, has become increasingly unaffordable for the people to whom it has been a traditional staple food, leaving these communities vulnerable to malnutrition and even obesity as Subway and McDonalds rush in with a clever marketing strategy to fill the gaps.

And we're using it on our armpits now?! For £10 a pop?

Sometimes you just have to marvel at the sheer selfish insanity of the world.

  1. The Quinoa that we use is grown in Colorado, North America specifically for use in cosmetics and has no impact whatsoever on supplies or costs of Quinoa used for food purposes.
