Our deodorants help reduce the waste of plastic containers that are often chosen for convenience. It takes more effort to use natural deodorant, but you end up odor-free and in a cleaner environment!
Apply very lightly on clean and moist armpits with a few swipes. Allow to absorb into skin for 5 or more minutes before dressing – do not over-apply as it will rub off onto clothing and rub between skin, causing irritation.
Irritation may occur due to baking soda. To help prevent this, you can eliminate razor bumps and burns with our shaving soaps.
Using a natural deodorant for the first time may cause a “detoxing period”. It is your body’s way of releasing trapped toxins from using an antiperspirant which prevents natural sweat detoxification. You may notice that your sweat contains a dark-colored substance. You can wear dark-colored or multi-layered clothing during this stage, which may last up to several weeks.
Irritation may also accompany the detoxing process, but should pass along with the dark perspiration. If irritation persists or becomes serious, please discontinue use and try again when your skin is healed.
Try not to use any deodorants during the healing process or the adjustment period may start over again. Once your body adjusts after one or two breaks for healing, you may never have another irritation episode again!
Do not over-apply or else you could simply irritate your armpits from friction movement between the baking soda deodorant and your skin.
If your compostable tube has been pushed up too much, you can use the lid of the tube to gently push it back down. If the lid has became loose and keeps popping off, you can soak it in water, careful not to let it sit in the water for too long ( a few seconds is plenty), then allow it to dry completely before putting it back on the tube. It should have a tighter fit after the short soak.
The tubes or tins should be stored in a dry area and outside of direct heat or sunlight.
We recommend using your deodorant within a year for best results. If the fats inside start to go rancid it could smell “off” or develop spots.
