Deodorant (Desert Rose + Citrus) - Extra Strength - 2.5 oz Tube
Deodorant (Desert Rose + Citrus) - Extra Strength - 2.5 oz Tube
Desert Rose + Citrus: Pure essential oils of Valencia orange and Egyptian geranium make this a green citrus scent with floral highlights. This deodorant contains 100% pure essential oils.
Our extra-strength aluminum-free, baking soda-free and paraben-free vegan deodorants are designed to keep you fresh with a very light application. Since they only need one light swipe per armpit, they last much longer than ordinary deodorants.
How it works: We use enzymes to help zap the odor-causing bacteria, and tapioca starch to help absorb excess wetness. Each stick or cube will glide on lightly and smoothly.
Size and packaging options:
Each 2.5 oz full-size tube should last one person 6 to 12 months with regular use.
New extra-strength formula: This concentrated deodorant is strong and effective. Use only one light swipe per armpit.
Transition period from aluminum deodorant: Aluminum-based antiperspirants include big brand products, as well as alternative products like crystal sticks, alum sticks and mineral salt sticks. When switching away from these, you might experience a detox effect for a few days to a couple weeks.
What we mean by detoxing is: you may be more stinky and sweaty at first while your body is ridding itself of the buildup that has accumulated with antiperspirant use. Antiperspirants block the pores so sweat can’t get out. Your body needs to sweat to remove waste.
Re-apply as needed: You may want to reapply during the first few weeks until the detoxing is finished. To reapply, first wipe the area dry, then just use one or two light swipes to refresh your protection. After the detox period, the deodorant should last all day without need to reapply.
This size and packaging:
Full size (Plastic Tube) | 2.5 oz net wt | love the earth - please recycle or re-use your plastic tube
If you shave, wax or epilate, or for very sensitive skin: As with any deodorant, we do not recommend applying directly after shaving or hair removal, and we recommend using an extra layer of cream or moisturizer (a small bit of shea butter works great) first if the skin is particularly sensitive and prone to rashes or irritation.
What to do if it dries out: It may evaporate over time and the stick will become drier, and glide less. This doesn't mean it's no longer working - it still will work and be effective. You can re-hydrate it by spritzing with water or using a wet finger to get the “slippery” feeling again.
Store in airtight container: For the unpackaged deodorants, keep it in an airtight container to prevent it from getting dry. This is especially a factor in dry climates.
High heat: Keep your deodorant out of direct heat or sun (for example your car in the summer) because your deodorant could melt at very high temperatures.
About the ingredients:
Dipropylene glycol - moisturizer that helps with slip and glide - rated 1 (green) on EWG, considered safe and non-toxic even as a food additive
Tapioca starch (modified) polymethylsilsesquioxane - a light version of tapioca starch modified with silica microspheres (from non-toxic inert substance that makes up plants, animals and the sand on the beach) to absorb wetness - ideal for heavy perspiration
Aloe vera juice (organic) hydrated (with water) from inner fillet - softens and protects skin while helping with glide
Sodium stearate - thickener from plants, also a common ingredient in cleansers and soaps for texture
Natural enzymes - fermented enzymes from natural yeast to help zap odor-causing bacteria
Cyclopentasiloxane - a lightweight silicone for glide that doesn't cause build up on skin like dimethicone - washes out clean with soap or body wash - based on silica, a naturally occurring mineral
Golden jojoba wax - a desert native plant wax that mimics the skin's natural barrier - helps with soothing and skin protection
Allantoin - a skin protectant found in many plants and animals, ours is derived from the comfrey plant
Bamboo extract powder - a silica (mineral) rich powder used to absorb wetness and help with smooth application
Phenoxyethanol* (and) Caprylyl Glycol (and) Sorbic Acid - preservative to keep your stick fresh in the medicine cabinet - paraben-free *used at less than 1%
Fragrance - scented with a proprietary blend of pure 100% essential oils. We use the term fragrance to refer to this essential oil blend.
I have tried numerous natural deodorants and this is the only one that truly works for me! No irritation and amazing protection. The scent is just enough...not too strong and yet just interesting enough. I loved your Glassell Park store and sorry it is gone, but so glad I can still order your amazing products!!!
Zero waste, completely invisible and long lasting.
The smell 10 stars, natural, no tox AND it works!! I mean you cannot beat that! Please carry this forever
I've been using this deodorant for a couple of years and it's the only natural one that works for me. That being said, I'm not sure if the ingredients or formula changed, but it does cause irritation. More specifically, this deodorant can't be used after a wax because it has enzymes in it meaning it will cause irritation i.e. peeling, burning, redness, etc. I also learned while on a trip to Hawaii that it BURNS BADLY when you come in contact with salt water. Unfortunately, I couldn't use deodorant on this trip because of this reason and because I was in the ocean frequently. Other than that, I like it but you have to be mindful when using it!
I love everything about this. Beautiful aroma, friendly to my sensitive skin and really zero waste. My deodorant for life. Please reopen your store in Los Angeles.
I was looking to switch from mainstream deodorant and anti perspirant to stop putting harmful metals and toxic chemicals in my body. I was hesitant because, as an athlete, and someone who perspires significantly, I worried natural deodorant wouldn’t work. But I was pleasantly surprised!! Took about two weeks before it really kicked in, but I am now a customer for over 6 years!! I will never buy another deodorant and hope they go back to selling more scents. I loved the Woodsman scent. Bring it back please!!
Can you guys make the woodsman deodorant again? I like this one as well!
It works. I love it. It a lovely scent. I will continue to buy it as long as you make it.
My only suggestion is to find a way to sell it without the plastic container. If you had a one-time metal container and then refills (wrapped in strong paper, like a thick toilet roll, maybe?) or a hefty cardboard container instead...? I have no doubt that you are working on it. Keep calm and carry on....making the best deodorant product ever.
I found it being sold at a boutique type store and then found out who they were to buy it direct. It is the best.
The No Tox Life deodorant is a game changer. I won't use any other deodorant. I used to sweat through my tops or my white tops would yellow at the armpits, but that doesn't happen anymore. I stay dry all day. I use the desert rose and citrus scent now, since the fig scent is discontinued. I love the subtle sweet scent and the long lasting properties. It's truly the best! Please don't ever stop making this! Thank you No Tox Life! I really miss your cute little store in Glassel Park!!
I really, really like this deodorant. It's the most effective one I've ever used. I ended up with the unscented (but I also like the Earl Grey one a lot too.)
