Traditional bodycare products are wasteful and full of chemicals. Plus, few "natural" alternatives actually work
Millennials and Gen Z consumers demand a higher standard from brands and products, especially when it comes to personal health, environmental impact and customer experience. For them, traditional body care products, including deodorant, must not sacrifice performance or product experience at the expense of using natural ingredients or wasteful plastic over-packaging.
Refillable, plant-powered bodycare that does what it should, and then some
Myro makes clean, environmentally-friendly body care products, starting with deodorant. We heavily invest in R&D to create plant-powered formulas that meet or exceed desired performance and, while we're at it, deliver mood-boosting benefits through natural fragrances and essential oils.
Our formulas are long-lasting and entirely non-toxic, and our packaging is pro-planet too!
Myro's refillable cases, recyclable refill pods and subscription service model help eliminate plastic waste and promote sustainable consumption practices.
99% natural deodorant that 100% works
We made Myro the right way, with a harder-working formula and fewer ingredients than other deodorants. Our product is vegan, gluten, soy and mineral oil free, and aloe-based for a soothing, comfortable glide.
Myro's formula also includes bacteria-neutralizing probiotics and sage to keep you feeling fresh. And, yes, it really works! Our new Myro+ line has been clinically tested for 24-hour odor protection!
Myro is totally customizable!
Customers can choose from 9 scents and 7 case colors, and our easy-to-use refill system means you can change your scent at any time so that Myro always matches your mood.
We deliver refill pods at the frequency that's right for you. You can update your scent preferences, press pause, or cancel your subscription at any time.
Myro's refillable cases are made for keeps, not the landfill. They're dishwasher safe and TSA compliant. Our fully recyclable refill pods use 50% less plastic than typical deodorants. In 2019 alone, Myro consumers have saved the equivalent of 3M+ plastic bags by switching to our sustainable refill system.
Over $8M+ sold!
We booked $8M+ in revenue by growing our direct-to-consumer presence as well as testing retail channels.
We also won the 2020 Glamour Beauty Award, Parents Magazine's Green Picks of 2020, Wallpaper* Design Award, Refinery29's Beauty Innovator Award among many others....

Omni-channel strategy unlocks quick scale and profitability
Our first source of revenue is DTC e-commerce, through subscription offerings for deodorant refills as well as one-time purchases.
Our second is retail, through partnerships with companies such as Amazon, Anthropologie, Grove, with more launching in early 2021 for a total footprint of 2300+ stores.
Super "sticky" refill model
The refill model has proven to be "sticky." Since launch, we've sold 2x as many refills as starter kits on the DTC side, and have observed a quick adoption from starter kits to refills in retail stores.
Based on our current traction and rapid retail door expansion planned for 2021, we project a revenue opportunity north of $50M/yr within a few years.
$25B bodycare market
Our initial target market is the $3.5B deodorant segment of the broader $25B bodycare industry. While our current product offering only targets this market niche, Myro is in the research and development phase for several new bodycare items, two of which are expected to hit the market in early 2021. These new product lines will allow us to expand our market reach considerably over the next few years.
Sustainable consumer products are on fire!
Beauty products generate over 75 billion plastic units of packaging per year.
We see whitespace in developing a plastic-reducing bodycare line aimed at a mass-premium segment.
Myro will own sustainable bodycare
Our goal is to turn personal care necessities into pro-you, pro-planet, obsession-worthy essentials.
Radical product innovation
It's our fundamental belief that people will always choose better sustainable products when given an easy, economical choice.
So, next up... We are creating a refillable body wash. 100% plastic free, 100% customizable.
Refillable body mist too.
Watch for both in 2021.
$10M+ raised from visionaries and operators
Our shareholders include top VCs, entrepreneurs and high-performance athletes who share the vision of building Myro into a sustainable bodycare category leader.
