How To Use Our Deodorant
INTRODUCTION: Our Deodorants are intended to help reduce the waste of plastic containers that are so often chosen for convenience with other deodorants. This being said, it often takes more time and effort to use natural deodorant, but it is well worth it in the end. Not only do you end up odor free for 24 hours, you also end up with a cleaner environment!
Apply very lightly on clean armpits with a few swipes. Allow to absorb into skin for at least 5 minutes before dressing.
Using this organic deodorant (or others like it) for the first time may cause a “detoxing period”.** This stage can last up to several weeks. It is your body’s way of releasing trapped toxins from using either an antiperspirant or chemicals that prevent natural sweat detoxification from your armpits’ lymph nodes. You may notice that your sweat contains a dark-colored substance; this is your body’s toxins finally escaping! If needed, you can either wear dark colored or multi-layered clothing during this time. If a stain develops, it can easily be removed from your clothes with natural soap, baking soda, vinegar, or hydrogen peroxide. Irritation may also accompany the detoxing process but should pass along with the dark perspiration. If irritation continues or becomes serious, please discontinue use and seek medical advice.
Irritation may occur due to baking soda. To prevent this you should eliminate razor bumps and burns. Try any of our shaving soaps for silky-smooth shaving without irritation!
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 for a second, careful not to let it sit in the water for too long ( a few seconds in plenty), then allow it to dry completely before putting it back on the tube.
Preferably, the tubes should be stored in a dry area, outside of direct sunlight for they can melt in extreme heat.
Do Deodorants Expire?
We recommend using your deodorant within a year for best results. If the oils/fats inside start to go rancid it could smell “off” or develop spots.
