ByApr 26, 2021CourtesyIdentify the product you want. Pull off the cap—twist up the small swivel at the bottom of the tube to release the product. Put the lid back on. These are all daily motions for many of us when it comes to our beauty routines—but for some, it's an accessibility barrier that's kept them from using specific products.
"There is currently no deodorant designed for people with upper body disabilities or visual impairment to use," says Esi Eggleston Bracey, EVP & COO of Beauty & Personal Care Unilever North America (which owns Degree)."That’s why we set out to create a revolutionary deodorant application process that ensures usability for everyone―however you move."
That product was announced today:Degree Inclusive. It took the Degree team, who co-created every single prototype alongside about 200 differently-abled consultants, about a year to perfect the design currently in beta testing. This version includes a hooked top and enhanced grip placement so you can apply in a myriad of ways, a magnetic lid for easy opening and closing, a braille label, and a larger applicator area, so you get more surface area per application. Inside the Degree Inclusive packaging, you'll find the same sweat-and-body odor demolishing formula that shoppers love. headtopics.comRead more: ELLE Magazine (US) »
