Deodorant (Desert Rose + Citrus) - Extra Strength Odor Control - 2.5 oz Tube

Deodorant (Desert Rose + Citrus) - Extra Strength Odor Control - 2.5 oz Tube

Regular price $21.98 Sale

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 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 bamboo extract 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.

See zero waste options here.

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 (and toxins) 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: Each deodorant is handmade with vegan ingredients, in small batches. Since there is a high amount of aloe vera juice, 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 the aloe vera juice from evaporating.  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.

I love this deodorant

The Rose citrus is a very nice scent. It is very subtle and feminine. I just love this deodorant. This is my third stick and I started buying in two years ago I think. It just lasts forever. The third stick (Rose Citrus is actually for my daughter. I want to start her out with quality natural products. I bought the deodorant round without the applicator for myself.) I have tried three different scents and not all of them I loved. So not every scent is going to be a hit but the overall product it so awesome. I am definitely not inclined to spend so much money for deodorant but since in lasts so long and works so well I will keep doing it as long as it is available.
The deodorant round without the plastic holder is a little tricky to use. It is difficult to store. I don't know why it isn't made in a shape that can be inserted into the old deodorant housing so that plastic can be reused. I know it is better that I don't get it in the plastic applicator next time but I think I might just because if a solution to the messiness and storage doesn't present itself. It would be a smart move to find a way to reuse the plastic I have already bought from you!
Thanks for your product. I love it.

Awesome deodorant!

I've been using their deodorant since 2016 and have ordered a year supply annually to take advantage of the free shipping offer. Smells great! Feels great! And it WORKS! Previously, my underarm skin tone was darker from the deodorant I used to use (with aluminum type). That's long gone now since the switch.
