Our deodorant can be applied to all zones of the body that are prone to sweating: on the feet, hands, chest, and armpits.
Without any paraben, alcohol, aluminum salt or alum stone, it regulates perspiration without blocking it and enables the body to keep eliminating toxins. Our deodorant lets us forget about the unpleasant effects of sweating.
The composition of our deodorant
Our deodorant is handmade in our workshop in Marseille. We use handmade and natural techniques to produce our deodorant, following a simple but effective recipe with just four GMO-free ingredients.
- White clay : Absorbs excessive moisture and softens the skin. It also calms the epidermis after waxing.
- Powdered Iris florentina: Protects and hydrates skin, as well as softening it and absorbs moisture.
- Bicarbonate of soda : non-toxic and non-allergenic, eliminates bacteria and cleanses the skin while minimizing undesirable odors.
- Organic Corn starch : helps hold the deodorant in place on your skin, absorbs perspiration and softens the skin.
All our ingredients come from France except powdered Iris, which comes from Albania.
It DOESN'T contain ANY :
- Aluminum salts (or aluminum chlorohydrate)
- Potash alum or alum stone
- Propellant gases
- Triclosan alcohols
A deodorant that isn't an antiperspirant
Our deodorant does not block perspiration - perspiration is both natural and necessary even if can be a problem for people that sweat a lot.
However, it does have a small perspiration reducing effect because of the bicarbonate of soda.In the interest of your health and well-being we have chosen not to strengthen this anti-perspiration effect.
Our deodorant acts on bacteria in particular. We need to remember that sweat is one of the ways our body rids itself of toxins and waste. Blocking this excretion stops the body from working properly
What they don't tell you about industrial deodorants
Despite the ingredients that have been proven to be harmful to our health, industrial manufacturers continue to use:
- Aluminum chlorohydrate (ACH), better known as aluminum salts. Very widely used, it is nevertheless an irritant for the skin that penetrates its various layers and accumulates in our organs. It can cause irritation, inflammation and more.
-Potassium alum and whatever its derivative is also aluminum, a metal that should not be in our bodies.
- Propellant gases such as butane, ethanes, and other gases which, once released into the atmosphere, increase pollution by volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Moreover, no studies into the effects on humans has been released.
And finally the other additional junk like triclosan, a synthetic anti-bacterial but also known as a endocrine disruptor.
Here is the composition of our deodorant 100% natural:
Ingredients: Sodium bicarbonate (baking soda), Kaolin (white clay), Iris Germanica Florentinea (Florence iris powder), Zea Mays starch (organic corn starch)
How to use our deodorant?
It's very easy to use. It's a roll-on - i.e., a pot with a roller ball which allows the deodorant powder to pass through as it rolls over your skin.
The first thing to do is make sure your skin is clean (feet, armpits, torso, back, etc.) Naturally, we can only recommend that you use our soap for that.
On dry skin, apply the roll-on delicately back and forth, then left to right. To find out if you've put on enough you should have a whitish area without any lumps and should look like the area as pictured.
To see if you’ve put too much on you can run your hand over the skin and no powder should fall away. If some powder comes of, don’t worry because it’s stain free-even on black clothes.The powder will gradually disappear from your skin over the next few hours - don't be afraid to wear a tank top !
Our deodorant has a slight smell of violets. If you want, you can add essential oils or your favorite fragrance. Our deodorant will take on the scent of the essential oils or fragrances you add.
It might be a bit unsettling at the beginning because this deodorant is quite different from industrial roll on or spray on deodorants.But don’t worry ! You’ll get used to it quickly !
Your body will need to regulate itself once you stop using your usual deodorant.You might sweat or smell a tiny bit more.
Don’t panic ! This is normal and will take up to 1 to 2 weeks for your body to get used to the change.
A roll-on pot made from recyclable plastic
For the packaging of our powdered deodorant we chose recyclable PET plastic roll-ons. This type of plastic is the most environmentally friendly type in existence (and even better for the environment than glass, taking into account the manufacturing process and shipping requirements).
This roll-on contains no phthalates or bisphenol A.The result in a light and solid package. We've tested and retested it!
If you'd like to reorder our deodorant, we recommend that you reuse your roll-on and order a refill. The planet will thank you for it.
