Oars + Alps California Coast Aerosol Deodorant


The word "aerosol" can stir up a mix of concerns. At Oars + Alps, we understand the need for transparency and responsibility in the products we use every day. That's why since we launched our first spray sunscreens in 2021 we have only used aerosol technology that’s designed with your health and the environment in mind.  Our aerosols use Bag on Valve (BOV) technology to ensure safety and sustainability without compromising quality. This blog will address common misconceptions about aerosol products, explain the innovative technology behind our sprays, and highlight their benefits for you and the environment.

What is an Aerosol Spray?

Aerosol sprays are a liquid dispensing system that releases a product as a fine mist. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), traditional systems have used volatile organic compounds such as butane, isobutane, and propane as aerosol propellants in hygiene products. However, our aerosol deodorant and sunscreen sprays use Bag on Valve (BOV) technology to create a safer, cleaner mist using air instead. This method eliminates the environmental impact and the risk of skin irritation typically associated with traditional aerosol propellants.

Are Spray Deodorants Bad for You?

Many people are concerned about the safety of spray deodorants, particularly with the use of chemical propellants. Oars + Alps upholds a standard with our spray deodorants by keeping them free from harmful chemicals. Our products utilize BOV aerosol technology, which ensures safety and integrity by protecting the contents from contamination. This allows you to use our spray deodorants with complete peace of mind.

What is BOV?

Bag on Valve (BOV) aerosols offer a clean, eco-friendly alternative to traditional aerosol propellant sprays by using compressed air or inert gasses instead of harmful chemicals. This approach improves environmental safety and provides a more consistent, even spray application. Additionally, BOV aerosols feature a 360-degree sprayer, allowing you to spray the product even when the can is held upside down. This design makes it easy to get hard-to-reach areas like the upper back, ensuring full coverage and convenience. With BOV aerosols, you get a product that’s easy to apply, gentle on the skin, and safe for the planet.

How Does BOV Work?

In BOV aerosols the product is sealed in a flexible bag within the can, with the aerosol propellant (air or inert gasses) filling the space around the bag. The bag compresses when the button is pressed, pushing the product out as a uniform mist. This mechanism ensures that the product is isolated from the propellant, maintaining its purity and effectiveness. It also allows for nearly all the contents inside to be dispensed, minimizing waste and increasing efficiency. You can read an in-depth guide on this technology here.

BOV Benefits

BOV technology changes how our aerosol deodorant and sunscreen spray are delivered, bringing several key advantages:

  • Eco-Friendliness: Our aerosol deodorant and sunscreen have a much lower environmental footprint by avoiding harmful chemical propellants.
  • Product Purity: The airtight bag ensures that the formula remains free from contamination, maintaining its effectiveness.
  • Efficient Usage: The design allows you to use nearly 100% of the product inside, reducing waste and providing exceptional value.
  • Skin Friendly: The absence of harsh chemicals makes these sprays suitable for all skin types as they are free of skin-irritating propellant ingredients.
  • 360-Degree Sprayer: The 360-degree sprayer allows you to spray the product from any angle, making it easy to reach difficult areas.
