Extra strength zero waste deodorant! Earl Grey (Bergamot Italian Orange) with a hint of herb garden make a pleasant, light fragrance. Unisex.
Our 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 light swipe 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 puck will glide on lightly and smoothly. Needing only one light swipe per underarm! Application not recommended directly after shaving, waxing or epilating or for very sensitive skin.
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. Storage container not included. May dry out if not stored in an airtight container. If deodorant dries out, simply re-hydrate by spritzing with water or wetting with finger to get the "slippery" feeling again.
Transition period from aluminum deodorant: When switching away from aluminum or other antiperspirants, you might experience a detox effect for a few days to a couple weeks. This detox may mean more odour and sweat at first, as your body rids itself of the build up from antiperspirant use.
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.
*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.
