Have you ever tried a natural deodorant and it just didn't work? Do you smell like a gym locker if you forget to apply it? This may help.
Conventional deodorants (antiperspirants) block your pores to prevent sweating. If you switch to a natural deodorant and it doesn’t work, it probably means your ex-deodorant is still doing its thing.
Sustain Yourself's armpit detox is for those who need the extra help when transitioning to a natural deodorant from a the toxic conventional stuff, but it also packs a kick for the average pit. This detox works by absorbing impurities from the skin, like dead skin cells, dirt, toxins, oil, bacteria, and even deodorant residue, clearing the way for natural deodorant to work effectively. An overproduction of oil in the skin can lead to skin sensitivity, breakouts, and poor absorption of natural deodorant.
Keep in mind that not all natural deodorant is created equal. We’re confident in the strength of our formula, so we recommend trying our deodorant first before doing an armpit detox if your concern is deodorant efficacy. But if our deo doesn’t work for you right away, we highly recommend detoxing, even if you’ve been using natural deodorant for a while. Your pits need a good cleanse every so often too and you'll be shocked by the results.
If our deo doesn't work for you right away, we recommend detoxing every day (or every other day if you have sensitive skin) until our deo lasts a whole day without needing to reapply.
If our deo works perfectly for you, but you just want to cleanse the pits, we recommend detoxing once a week to once a month to keep your pit pores fresh and clean, allowing for deo to work its 24+ hour magic.
Our Armpit Detox comes in powder form and is most effective when mixed with apple cider vinegar to create a mask, but water works too. Metal will deactivate the properties that make our armpit detox beneficial and effective, so use a non-metal dish and spoon to make your mask.
bamboo spoons are sold separately.
Fun Fact: This Armpit Detox is multi-purpose and can also be used as a face mask! Let sit for 5 minutes and use once or twice a week, depending on skin sensitivity, and follow with a good moisturizer.
