You wanna know what stinks? The fact that there are so many Aluminium deodorants getting around! With growing evidence to support being aluminium-free, we decided it was time to jump on board!
Many natural deodorants receive a bad rap for being in-effective or difficult to apply, which is why we have taken a different approach. It took a lot of testing to get it right, but we're confident in saying we've come up with something pretty special! We combine Milk of Magnesia and Essential Oils to keep that odour-causing bacteria under control, as well as some food grade gums to hold it all together. The result? An easy to apply roll-on Deodorant, that keep your BO away and your friends close.
BE MINDFUL! After a lifetime of blockage, it might take a fortnight or so for your armpits to completely detoxify and for our Aluminium-free deodorant to start working to its full potential. The first two weeks will be the most challenging, as you might experience a bit of BO. We encourage you to push through so you can finally set your armpits FREE!
Give the bottle a shake, roll on and allow it to dry before dressing (especially if you're planning to wear black clothing).
Although it might seem a bit odd, we encourage you to use the deodorant before going to sleep. During those 6-8 hours of sleep, our body sweats and bacteria can take advantage before you even wake up! Win the BO war by simply applying some deodorant prior to your beauty sleep and don’t even give bacteria a chance.
As with all-natural products, patch test for allergies before use. Store below 30° C.

Understanding Deodorant vs Antiperspirant.
Antiperspirants work via aluminium compounds which enter the sweat ducts and plug them closed to block perspiration. This means you end up with little aluminium plugs all throughout your underarm pores and very close to breast tissue. Sweat itself is odourless (believe it or not), so if you're noticing any BO, it's actually the result of a bacterial party in the armpits (imagine bacteria feasting on your sweat, and the by-product of their meal being BO...eww!). Our formula allows for normal perspiration, but combines Magnesium and an effective Essential Oil blend to control bacteria. No need to block your bodys natural processes, when you can actually work on the root of the problem.
We highly recommend jumping onto Google Scholar and checking out the research behind using aluminium antiperspirants (yeah, we're A Bit Hippy but we always make sure to do our research).
