We caught up with Mel Lewis, the super talented founder of Ultrella, to find out why interest in natural deodorant is skyrocketing and her top tips for Kiwis wanting to give it a go. ​Mel has kindly given us two gift packs to give away. Each pack is worth $55+ and contains Ultrella Natural Deodorant, Ultrella Natural Body Spray and CalmPits Detox Rose. To enter, simply email editor@oobymag.co.nz and tell us the name of the revolutionary natural Botox-like ingredient used in Ultrella products. You can find the answer here!
