our extra-strength package-free deodorants are designed by no tox life to keep you fresh with a very light application. you only need one light swipe per armpit so they last much longer than ordinary deodorants.
detox transition period: 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 light swipe to refresh your protection. after the detox period, the deodorant should last 8 hours without need to reapply.
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 handmade 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.
- keep cool out of direct heat or sun and store in an airtight jar
