Switching over to natural deodorant? Sam's got your back with everything you need to know about switching from a commercial deodorant and what to expect with a natural deodorant.
Our deodorant sticks last a very long time since a little goes a long way! Be sure to wash and dry your underarms thoroughly to wipe away any build-up or odor that has occurred. Next, only apply 1-2 light swipes. We know it’s tempting, but resist the urge to over apply. Over application is sometimes common with new customers and this could cause a minor rash due to the baking soda in our formula. If this happens, we recommend reducing your usage amount or discontinuing use. Unfortunately, some people may simply be sensitive to our ingredients and are unable to use our natural deodorants.
You may experience a brief transition period when you switch from a commercial deodorant to a natural deodorant. This has a lot to do with how our bodies react to changing things up so don’t throw in the towel just yet because this is actually a good thing. When you stop using products that clog your pores and stop your body’s natural cooling process, your pits will ditch the backlog of harsh chemicals. This may cause an increase in sweat, body odor, or sensitivity. Be patient, this transition is usually only a few days to a week and the payoff is well worth it.
