Zero Waste Deodorant (Earl Grey)
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: We use enzymes to help zap the odor-causing bacteria, and bamboo extract to help absorb excess wetness. Each stick or cube will glide on lightly and smoothly.
Size and packaging: Each 1 oz round puck (unpackaged zero waste option - comes wrapped in paper for shipping) should last 2 to 4 months (or longer) with regular use
New extra strength formula: This concentrated deodorant is strong and effective. Use only one light swipe per armpit.
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 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.
If you shave, wax or epilate, or for sensitive skin: As with any deodorant, we do not recommend applying directly after shaving or hair removal, and we recommend using 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 re-hydrate 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.
