Yes our deodorant is vegan and cruelty-free.
Our deodorant is handmade from natural ingredients that are 100% organic - it’s free from Parabens, Aluminium, BPAs, Petrochemicals and Palm Oil. It’s also not packaged in plastic, making it better for the environment. Unlike many regular deodorants it doesn’t just mask bad smell, it actually prevents it. And unlike antiperspirants it doesn’t block your sweat glands, meaning that your body can still remove toxins.
It means that none of the ingredients have been sprayed with pesticides or include any additives. All of the ingredients that can be organic are, and ingredients like minerals, salts and clays are in their pure form.
When sweat interacts with bacteria on the underarm it causes body odour. The Bicarbonate of Soda ingredient slightly alters your skins natural pH level, which prevents bacteria (causing smell) from thriving. The Coconut Oil and Shea Butter provide moisturising benefits and the Aloe Vera soothes the skin.
Apply a pea sized amount using your fingertips to underarms, massaging into skin. Rub between fingertips to soften if needed.
Our deodorant should be stored in a cool dark place to keep it at its best. In periods of very hot weather or if you're on holiday, it can be stored in the fridge - allow it to soften a little at room temperature before using.
Yes, the deodorant will change slightly depending on the temperature of where its being stored. Don’t worry if it’s melted slightly, this won’t change its effectiveness – just use a little less than usual. Be sure to store in a cool dark place to keep it at its best. In periods of hot weather or if you’re on holiday, it can be stored in the fridge.
Our deodorant has a use-by of 12 months. If you’re not planning on using it straight away, we'd recommend keeping it in the fridge until you are ready to use it.
Yes, our deodorant balm contains Aloe Vera to help soothe fresh-shaved skin. If skin is particularly sensitive, we’d recommend a patch test after shaving.
