Respray Solutions Ltd. was the first company in the world to develop and market a spray deodorant refill solution. The young people have been committed to environmental protection and sustainability from the very beginning, and their development aims to reduce the amount of hazardous waste from aluminium deodorant bottles. 

To solve the problem, they have developed a re-refillable, no-hazard propellant-free technology. The duo’s design combines innovative valve and nozzle technology with a proprietary, easy-to-use and user-friendly (re)filling machine. They now offer the world’s most sustainable spray deodorant. 

On 26 March 2024, he Hungarian Innovation Grand Prize 2023 was awarded in the Upper House of the Parliament, along with 7 other innovation prizes, including the prominent professional award for environmental development. 

A panel of scientists and renowned business experts, headed by the Minister of Culture and Innovation, selected the outstanding innovation achievements primarily on the basis of economic results and social utility. At this year’s awards ceremony, globally outstanding performances that generated more than 33.8 billion Forints in additional revenue last year and delivered outstanding societal benefits were honoured.
