Essential Deodorant Stick With Activated Charcoal All Natural Hand Crafted Toxin Free
The product was developed to support the bodies natural process of detoxing.
80% of the population uses antiperspirants, to stop sweating. But, the armpit is designed to sweat out toxins from the body. Antiperspirant does the same thing as deodorant, but it's also jam-packed with aluminum, which stops you from sweating by blocking off your sweat glands. When this action is stopped, the body cannot detox, and congestion is formed that shows up in a thermogram as bright red. When this congestion is not cleared, it can lead to further complications.
The armpits sweat for a reason, yet most people feel that they have to stop that, so they won't smell bad. In the effort to do that, they use products that cause congestion, and ultimately harmful, by not allowing the natural detoxing to take place. Therefore, we designed this deodorant to kill the bacteria that causes the bad smell (the essential oils are antimicrobial and antibacterial, and we included activated charcoal.
The inclusion of activated charcoal is the key, for its detoxing effect. Doctors use it in trauma centers and hospitals to treat poisoning. Charcoal deodorant fights odor naturally and will keep you dry all day. Unlike other natural deodorants, activated charcoal is carbon-rich which means that it can extract oil, dirt, and other stuff from clogged pores. It can even absorb 1,000 times its own weight in moisture which helps to absorb underarm wetness. Plus, it boasts detoxifying properties and can draw out bacteria just like a regular deodorant or antiperspirant.
Ingredients: Cornstarch, Baking Soda, Arrowroot, OG Shea Butter, Virgin Coconut Oil, Cocoa Butter, Activated Charcoal, Tapioca Flour, Natural Beeswax, Carnauba Wax, Zinc Oxide, Lavender Hydrosol, Witch Hazel, Rosehip Seed Oil, Aloe Vera Gel, Vitamin E, and Pure Essential Oils of French Lavender, Clary Sage, Rose Geranium, Spearmint, Ylang Ylang, Cedarwood, Lemon, Cypress, Tea Tree, and Palmarosa
Each of our therapeutic-grade essential oils increases the effectiveness of our product, has antibacterial Properties and adds a fresh, clean, natural fragrance.
This product has been developed and tested so that the light gray color of the activated charcoal is absorbed directly and should not stain clothes. Especially helpful when rubbed into the skin.
*A QUICK WORD ON SWITCHING FROM REGULAR TO NON-TOXIC NATURAL DEODORANT. If you’ve used regular deodorant for years, we have found that your body may go through a detox period when switching to natural deodorant. We find this usually takes about a week to adjust. You may notice an increase in sweat for the first few days. This is normal. It is your body’s way of getting rid of the toxins that have been absorbed over the years.
Rashing: We have noticed that a small percentage of people who have switched to a natural deodorant sometimes develop a rash. If you're using a natural deodorant and you start getting red, raw, irritated underarms, your first instinct is to look at the back of the package and find an ingredient to blame. Maybe it's the baking soda, you might think. Maybe it's one of the essential oils. And while this is possible, (I've definitely seen deodorants formulated with too much baking soda or essential oils that should never be used on skin) your worst enemy is most likely something you didn't expect: your own sweat! Do not ignore.
This is a general guide--if you have a rash that persists, visit a doctor for medical attention.
These are the most common types of rashes. Other medical conditions can cause underarm rashes, so do visit a doctor if your rash doesn't clear on its own.
However, an expertly formulated deodorant will not cause a baking soda reaction when used at a lower concentration. That's because sweat is mildly acidic and neutralizes the alkalinity of the baking soda and dissolves it. Baking soda can be a helpful part of a deodorant and you most likely CAN use baking soda. (There are a small number of people that can't due to impaired skin function; we do have baking-soda-free options available -- see Deodorant for Sensitive Skin.
