What ingredients are in our deodorants, you ask?

Magnesium enriched deodorant paste that neutralises odour and absorbs wetness in a compostable tube. Super easy to use with no need to touch the product with your fingers to apply. 

There is no aluminium, sulfates, phthalates, parabens or plastic in sight! 100% compostable paper packaging.

Our deodorants are not antiperspirants, they won’t clog your pores in your armpits. They only contain natural ingredients that you can understand and pronounce.

A combination of magnesium, organic tapioca starch and baking soda absorb moisture from the skin and keep it dry.  These ingredients prevent body odour by killing bacteria and changes the pH level in the underarm by counteracting the acids in sweat.

Wait, what?  How can I keep my armpits dry then? And why should I care?

Well, our bodies are made to sweat so they can cool down or excrete toxins. Think of sweating as a body detoxification.  If you have used a commercial antiperspirant for some time these clogged pores will need to unclog. It may take a while for your body to adjust to a natural deodorant and your body’s chemistry could change, you may even experience higher sweating or body odour. This is a sign your body is detoxifying itself.

Think of all the products we put on our faces to unclog the pores but we never think to do that to our underarms. Commercial antiperspirants infiltrate the underarm skin and get stuck within the body, an area that is very close to the lymph node and breast area. This is thought to be particularly worrisome for breastfeeding mums, young girls, menopausal woman and in fact anyone in between!

 

There are 9 deodorant choices, including 2 sensitive-skin bi-carb free options called So Vanilla and All Natural.

So Vanilla contains peru balsam and manuka essential oils as they are known for their soothing and calming skin properties.  And All Natural is free of any scent and bi-carb soda for those with very sensitive skins.
