Don’t underestimate the power of armpits 💪  Choosing nuud empowers a new way of looking at deodorant. You are helping eliminate all the negative side effects of traditional deo use. First of all, you chose to use substantially less product. Nuud is super concentrated and super effective. Our tiny 15 ml tube provides you with an average of seven weeks odor free living. By applying a little bit every three days (on average) you’re good to go. No matter what you’re up to: sport, work, sleep, recycling your trash, washing, showering or bathing.  Compare that with regular deodorant use: imagine the amount of production, packaging and transportation no longer needed, thanks to the choice you make!  What’s more, you opt for nuud’s ten, 100 % natural ingredients that work harder than regular deos do! Nuud contains no dodgy chemicals, aluminium, parabens, salts, fragrances, or alcohol.  And, and, and, since nuud is all natural, it is also totally harmless to your body. We’ve heard back from a lot of you first 500K armpits . We know you got rid of irritation, spots and other allergic reactions. You became happy again! Which in turn helps further our mission no end!  You make a true vegan choice. This makes you hip, but more importantly you’re looking out for our earth’s animals and the ecosystems they uphold. Thank you!  Last but not least you are minimizing the impact of your waste by choosing nuud. We do everything we can to make sure our packaging minimizes pollution. Therefore our tube is a bio plastic tube made out of sugarcane and our cardboard box is biodegradable.  So dearest, lovely, armpits – thank you for choosing nuud. Keep on spreading the love. Use all your armpit power to inspire others to follow your notable example. Because the fact that you are healthy, beautiful and fresh, makes you the most convincing argument out there.  X  Have a great day!

We are so proud of @Banksy (our collaborator of special Welcome mats) who has funded a refugee rescue boat operating in the Mediterranean sea according to the @guardian The incredible bright pink motor yacht is rescuing refugees attempting to reach Europe from North Africa. According to the article: "on Thursday it rescued 89 people in distress, including 14 women and four children." This comes days after the UN reported at least 45 people including five children died off Libya's coast trying to reach Europe. Photograph: Ruben Neugebauer taken from the Guardian.

Truth from @trevornoah.

1. You are not a Jedi. You have no control over people’s thoughts. So worrying about something you can’t control will send you mad. 2. You live inside yourself. Other people are just passing by the windows. Only you can truly know yourself. 3. If they are someone you wouldn’t ask for advice, why absorb their criticism? 4. It is impossible to have opinions and to exist in the world and for everyone to like you. 5. Concentrating on who you like, rather than worrying about who likes or doesn’t like you, is how you stay sane. 6. The very best people – the ones different enough to lead the way – have always had a lot of haters. Millions of people hated Obama enough to think Donald Trump should be President. People are idiots.Why base your view of a movie on a review when you know the movie off by heart because you are the movie? 7. People aren’t thinking about you THAT much. 8. 90 per cent of gossip is envy in disguise. 9. Today I got a message on Twitter from someone I deeply admire who feels dreadful because of online bullies. She is brilliant. Being brilliant doesn’t stop people hating you. In fact, it fuels it. 10. Fuck ‘em.
