- Extra Strength Odor Control
Earl Grey (Bergamot Italian Orange) with a hint of herb garden make a pleasant, light fragrance. Unisex.
This extra-strength aluminum-free and paraben-free vegan deodorant is designed to keep you fresh with a very light application. Since you only need one light swipe per armpit, this will last much longer than ordinary deodorants.
How it works: Enzymes are used to help zap odor-causing bacteria, and bamboo extract is used to help absorb excess wetness. Each puck will glide on lightly and smoothly.
Extra strength formula: This concentrated deodorant is strong and effective. Use only one light swipe per armpit. Not recommended for sensitive skin.
Transition period from aluminum deodorant: Aluminum based antiperspirants include big brand products, as well as alternative products like crystal sticks, alum sticks and mineral salt sticks. When switching away from these, you might experience a detox effect for anywhere from a few days to a couple weeks.
What is the detox effect: you may be more stinky and sweaty at first while your body is ridding itself of the buildup that has accumulated with antiperspirant use. Antiperspirants block the pores so sweat (and toxins) can’t get out. Your body needs to sweat to remove waste.
Re-apply as needed: You may want to reapply during the first few weeks until the detoxing is finished. To reapply, first wipe the area dry, then just use one light swipe to refresh your protection. After the detox period, the deodorant should last 8 hours without need to reapply.
If you shave, wax or epilate, or for sensitive skin: As with any deodorant, it is not recommended that you apply directly after shaving or hair removal, and it is recommended that you use an extra layer of cream or moisturizer (a small bit of shea butter works great) first if the skin is particularly sensitive and prone to irritation. Apply the moisturizer or oil or butter first then apply the deodorant.
What to do if it dries out: Each deodorant is made with vegan ingredients, in small batches. Since there is a high amount of aloe vera juice, it may evaporate over time and the stick will become drier, and glide less. This doesn't mean it's no longer working - it still will work and be effective. You can rehydrate it by spritzing with water or using a wet finger to get the “slippery” feeling again.
Store in airtight container: For the unpackaged deodorants, keep it in an airtight container to prevent the aloe vera juice from evaporating. This is especially a factor in dry climates.
High heat: Keep your deodorant out of direct heat or sun (for example your car in the summer) because your deodorant could melt at very high temperatures.
