About

Helping you fall in love with your body

Made for Every Body

Openly Human's mission is to create the most effective and eco-friendly plant-powered personal care products that raise the awareness of more mindful consumerism. Made for every body, our natural deodorant sprays are safe for all skin types and sensitivities. Our aromas are gender neutral and powered therapeutic essential oil blends to keep you fresh and grounded all day long.

Sustainable

Our formulas are expertly crafted using plant, mineral, and ferment-based ingredients. They are designed to work with your natural microbiome to fight odor without harmful, synthetic toxins. Our bottles are made from sugar cane with vegan, paper labels and it ships in a recyclable paper tube. Everything is held in place with a mushroom-based insert that can also be used as a planter!

Mindfully sourced & crafted

We've hand-selected the most effective, mindful and eco-friendly ingredients, suppliers, and manufacturers to produce products that are full of love, free of toxins and safe for the environment.

Giving Back

We believe in giving back to our community with every product we sell. We've partnered with Forest Nation to plant 10,000 trees in developing communities around the world. You buy a bottle, we plant a tree. This provides the local community with purpose-driven work, sustenance, and positive earth stewardship for future generations to come.

Our Story

Openly Human was founded by Steffen Hoffman, who is deeply inspired by the power and beauty of nature. Having previously built several plant-based wellness brands and products, Steffen has a undying passion to create utilitarian products that improve the lives of human beings while stewarding a greener future for the planet.

Why deodorant? Why personal care? Deodorant is a daily ritual and part of nearly everyone's life. However, the personal care industry has us twisted! Many personal care products are chock full of toxins and may do us more harm than good. Plastic packaging is still being mindlessly used and discarded, ending up in our oceans and destroying the eco-system. There are few natural options out there and many simply don't work. Something had to be done to create a planet of conscious consumers, mindfully voting with their dollar to both give back and get an amazing product.

Steffen felt compelled to change this paradigm and create products that are versatile, full of love and free of toxins; ultimately creating a brand that's as beautiful as it is meaningful. Thus, Openly Human was created. Using his herbalism and alchemical training, Steffen converted his living space into a lab and began experimenting. He worked tirelessly to research ingredients and study essential oils to help develop the first version of deodorant. Oh is the new wave of personal care brands: plant-powered, cause-driven and made for every body. We feel it's the responsibility of brands to steward a brighter future and greener planet through their products, culture, and business practices. We hope all people are inspired to discover their purpose and take action to make the world a better place. We love the heart, human, and planet-centered products we create at Openly Human, and we hope you love them too.

With love and light,
Steffen Hoffman
