This deo replaces our original Cedarwood & Vanilla version, which used baking soda
Make a plastic-free change with a fantastically effective natural deodorant that contains no aluminium salts, no non-natural chemicals ('nasties' as some call them), and no plastic in the package.
Just natural products, including plant oils that nourish the skin, and magnesium hydroxide (the key active ingredient) to keep you from smelling bad. A small amount of essential oils then create a lovely lasting fragrance and make you smell good - Cedarwood & Vanilla good.
The magnesium hydroxide is almost as potent as the baking soda used in our other deodorants, but is much less likely to cause skin irritation for the small number of people that react to a baking soda deo.
We do recommend people stick with the stronger baking soda range where possible.
Also, the original Cedarwood & Vanilla tended to change colour over time - this new version shows no colour change in over six months of testing.
It is highly effective - a light application should keep you free of underarm odours all day.
For mess-free application it is packaged in a push-up cardboard tube that can be composted at home once empty (or buried in the garden to rot down - even if it ends up in a landfill, at least isn't plastic).
Ingredients: coconut oil, tapioca starch, magnesium hydroxide, candelilla wax, castor oil, grapeseed oil, shea butter, essential oils, vitamin E.
Directions:1) Twist cap to break seal2) Push up from base to expose 2mm of deo stick3) If it's cold, hold deo against armpit for a couple of seconds to warm the surface4) With very little pressure, swipe the deo over the armpit, covering the whole area lightly. With gentle pressure the deo will stick to you a little, leaving just enough, but not too much!
Caution:Though unlikely with the magnesium hydroxide, a very small number of people may be sensitive to it, or another ingredient. If irritation develops (as can happen with any product, natural or otherwise) then discontinue use.A light application is all you need.
