Tips for switching to a natural deodorant
Are you a first timer? Make the switch easy and stinkless.
Switching from an antiperspirant to a natural deodorant is not rocket science nor requires any hard work from your side. Just get started and give it at least two weeks. However, to make the transition as smooth as possible and to avoid stinky days, we’ve put together a short list of relevant tips.
Should you expect a detox period?
We recommend trying a natural deodorant for at least two weeks before your body has adjusted to a new type of product. The reason is that your underarms will automatically release toxins that have been blocked by the aluminium salts in your antiperspirant. Based on our customer feedback, this “detox” period may last up to two weeks. However, most people don’t even notice it so don’t worry.
You can easily switch to our natural deodorant. Just apply it regularly (e.g. daily) with 2–4 rolls for each armpit, or whatever works for you. But as said above, apply it for at least two weeks.
Tips for staying stinkless
We’ve put together a short list to make the switch smooth.
Tip 1: Good body hygiejne
Good body hygiejne is elementary for staying stinkless. No products on the market can prevent odour-causing bacteria from ever growing on your skin. Regularly wash your underarms with soap to remove leftovers and bacteria. Sometimes it may help to use a scrubbing product with grains to exfoliate and clean your skin.
Tip 2: Use it regularly
Use our natural deodorant on a regular basis to let its mix of moisture absorbing and antimicrobial ingredients combat odour-causing bacteria. The amount you apply depends on your level of activity and how often you take a shower. Find the routine that works for you. What is important is to apply it regularly for at least two weeks, since this is the average time it takes to get rid of body toxin leftovers and for your body to adjust to a natural deodorant.
Tip 3: Keep your old clothes fresh
Your clothes may contain old bacteria and smell. Our deodorant cannot combat this smell, only an overload of perfume to mask it will do the trick (don’t do that by the way). Make sure your clothes are as fresh as possible.
