The Grateful Dead Came Out With A Line Of Vegan Deodorant
The rock band The Grateful Dead have partnered with North Coast Organics to come out with a line of vegan deodorant.
The product, which comes in five scents, is handmade and uses 100% vegan, natural and edible ingredients. The scents include Skull & Roses (lavender and rose), Sunshine (blood orange and bergamot), Workingman’s (cedar wood and juniper), Timber (Douglas fur and sage) and Unscented. The packaging uses the band’s famous thunderbolt in colors that correspond to the scent.

The North Coast Organics CEO Nathan Morin said in a statement, “I have been a Dead Head since 1999. The music and spirit of the Grateful Dead have influenced my company’s core principles of service, veganism, and organic agriculture. The Grateful Dead have inspired us to stay true to our main mission of social responsibility. We took care in creating special oil blends that reference the Grateful Dead’s music.”
The Grateful Dead’s legacy manager and archivist David Lemiuex added, “North Coast Organics lives and functions as we do, with an awareness that the future’s here, we are it, and we need to take care of the planet and ourselves.” He explained that while it may seem strange that a rock band is producing a deodorant, North Coast Organics align with The Grateful Dead’s belief to “love of the world around us.”
The Grateful Dead was formed in 1965, but split after the death of lead guitarist and vocalist Jerry Garcia. The band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of fame in 1994. The remaining members have participated in reunion concerts and performances and have been posting a live stream to the YouTube page during the coronavirus pandemic. The series is called the Shakedown Stream and is used for the musicians to discuss what is was like during their time in the band.

Grammy-Award winning keyboardist and vocalist @brucehornsby played over 100 shows with the @gratefuldead between 1988 to 1995 and even delivered the band’s induction speech into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame (@rockhall) in 1994. As far as we’re concerned, he’s family. This Friday, during the SHAKEDOWN STREAM PRE-SHOW, Bruce will be hanging out and chatting with David and Gary. Wanna hear more about what it was like to perform with the Dead? His fondest memories of @jerrygarcia? His creative songwriting process? You can submit your questions to Bruce, and David and Gary, by clicking the link in the bio. Then, sit tight for the SHAKEDOWN STREAM. This week we’re watching the complete, previously unreleased Grateful Dead concert, Shoreline, 5/11/91, featuring–you guessed it–Bruce Hornsby. All donations will go to the @naacp. The fun kicks off Friday, June 12 at 8pm ET/5pm PST on the Grateful Dead YouTube Channel. And don’t be shy, friends. Swing by a bit early and mingle with other Dead Heads in the live chat. - #GratefulDead #BruceHornsby #JerryGarcia #Keyboardist #Vocalist #ShakedownStream #ShakedownStreamPreShow #YouTube #Livestream #WeWillGetBy #Deadheads #Concert
