Zero Waste Deodorant
Earl Grey (Bergamot Italian Orange) with a hint of herb garden make a pleasant, light fragrance. Suitable for men and women.
The extra-strength aluminum-free and paraben-free vegan deodorants are designed to keep you fresh with a very light application. Since they only need one or two light swipes per armpit, they last much longer than ordinary deodorants.
How it works: enzymes zap the odor-causing bacteria, and bamboo extract helps absorb excess wetness. Each cube will glide on lightly and smoothly.
New extra strength formula: This concentrated deodorant is strong and effective.
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 a few days to a couple of weeks.
What we mean by detoxing is: 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 or two light swipes to refresh your protection. After the detox period, the deodorant should last all day without need to reapply.
