Making the Switch to Natural Deodorant: A How-To

Making the Switch to Natural Deodorant: A How-To

Embarking on the journey to switch to a natural deodorant can lead to an initial adjustment phase, including natural deodorant rashes or reactions as the bacteria exits through your sweat glands. It's crucial to allow your body time to adapt to this change, which can vary from one week to two. Once you commit to making the switch, the benefits become undeniable. Our team dedicated 18 months to perfect the formula, resulting in a product that both works to combat odour-causing bacteria and prevents you from sweating.

Transitioning to a Natural Deodorant

The key to successfully moving away from conventional deodorants and antiperspirants to a natural alternative lies in patience and following several crucial steps:

  1. If battling odour or itchiness, gentle dry brushing can promote lymph circulation and alleviate discomfort.
  2. Maintain hydration to support your body's natural detoxification processes.
  3. For those who shave their armpits, consider shaving less frequently to reduce bacteria build-up, potentially leading to fewer shaving sessions as your body adjusts to natural deodorants.
  4. During the initial "deodorant detox" phase, your glands and pores will begin to unclog and operate more efficiently, possibly leading to a temporary increase in body odour as toxins are expelled. Resist the urge to revert to your old products and stay the course.
  5. Daily washing can expedite the detox process, allowing the natural deodorant to penetrate more effectively and work its magic.

Our formula incorporates skin-friendly ingredients like essential oil blends, including tea tree for its antimicrobial properties, coconut oil, and arrowroot powder to provide moisture control without blocking sweat glands. This combination ensures our deodorants cater to those with sensitive skin, aiming to prevent allergic reactions and irritation. With a focus on maintaining a healthy pH level, our baking soda-free options avoid sodium bicarbonate, known to irritate the skin for some individuals.
