TEA TREE AND LAVENDER
Free of sodium bicarbonate – sensitive low ph deodorant.
Free of coconut oil – doesn’t stain the clothes.
Needing just one drop in each armpit it’s normally enough for 2 to 3 months.
The base of this formula is the potassium alum, a mineral salt used since centuries as a natural deodorant, which has been shown to have antimicrobial properties. It doesn’t block the sweat glands, allowing you to sweat naturally, but it is very efficient in combating bacterias so you don’t get that ‘sweaty’ odour. It is important to not confuse this ingredient with simple aluminium which has smaller particles that get released and absorbed by our skin, being very toxic. Potassium alum, on the contrary is completely safe for our skin being certified for natural cosmetic.
Combined with citric acid gives this formula a low pH, more close to the skin pH making it perfect for normal or sensitive skin. White clay absorbs the armpit humidity and the vegetable gycerin moisturises the skin. The tea tree essential oil has an antibacterial effect and lavender essential oil soothes the skin.
HOW TO USE
1.Put one drop on the finger without touching the bottle.
2.Apply the drop under the armpit and spread it.
3.Store away from direct sun and preferable more fresh and dark.
It is quite common that in the first few days the deodorant does’t work so well because the bacteria in our sweat need some time to adapt to the new product. Continue to use for a few days straight.
Its very important to not touch the opening of the bottle to avoid introducing bacterias in the liquid inside the bottle which could cause the deodorant to go bad quickly, since the product only has a very mild preservative.
The transition to a natural deodorant can be a very different experience for everyone. Most people don’t notice any difference, but some can have an initial period of increased sweat or even an itchy feeling or a small rash. This reaction can happen because since the natural deodorant doesn’t block the sweat, the armpit tends to be more moist and the friction of the skin produces an irritation called chafing. This is a normal process and if it occurs it’s only in the first days. If this feeling remains after a few days then you might have a allergic reaction and you should stop using it. You can also feel a stronger odor in the beginning since the bacterias that inhabit the armpit (and are ultimately responsible for the odor) are also adapting. Your body needs some time to find a balance. Allow it.
