I have questions about the solid deodorant
Sodium bicarbonate and palmarosa essential oil are two ingredients that are naturally very effective at fighting the growth of bacteria, which are responsible for body odour. That's why they're used in many natural deodorants. It's possible that your skin has a reaction to one of these ingredients.
Having said that, while some people's skin may react to these ingredients, they are not dangerous in any way – whereas some ingredients used in deodorants might be, such as aluminium salts.
One way to avoid reactions is to apply a very fine layer of product each time, so that it's not too much for the skin. Or you could alternate with another deodorant.
If you still have a reaction even when you've tried this, it may just be a reaction to the product, or you may be allergic to sodium bicarbonate or the essential oils. In that case, of course, we suggest you stop using the deodorant!
To help your skin recover, you could apply some botanical oil to your underarms.
Some people's skin reacts to the sodium bicarbonate in our deodorant. If this happens to you, stop using this deodorant and try one of our deodorants for sensitive skin, which are bicarb-free !
Our deodorant contains essential oil of palmarosa, not recommended for pregnant women and children under three years old
We test our products at 50°C. However, when temperatures are very high, the deodorant may "weep" a little as it is rich in oil. So it's best to keep it in a small container !
You can simply place it on a saucer or soap dish on the side of your wash basin. If you want to make sure it won't gather any dust, you could keep it in a small jar (e.g. one that held jam or your face cream). Regardless of how you store it, you don't need to worry about it "going bad". It's antibacterial, so it can't get dirty !
None of our products contain alcohol.
There are no aluminium salts in our deodorants !
When you apply the deodorant to your underarms, it should be well moistened and glide over the skin, just like a bar of soap between wet hands. It leaves a fine, transparent film on the skin, which dries quickly, so there isn't any risk of it leaving white marks on your clothes. For maximum effectiveness, I recommend going over the underarms well, both lengthways and widthways. A fine layer that covers a large area will be more effective than a thick layer over a smaller area.
Absolument pas ! Nos déodorants sont composés d'ingrédients qui neutralisent les odeurs sans bloquer le processus naturel de transpiration !
Sodium bicarbonate and palmarosa essential oil can irritate the skin. So if the skin of your underarms is quite fragile or sensitive, we recommend that you wait 24 hours after hair removal before applying your deodorant.
You could put it in a small jar that was used for jam or a face cream for example, or wrap it in a face cloth. Our Lamazuna jar is ideal for storing your deodorant, and also lets it dry out and "breathe"! You'll find it here !
As its name indicates, an antiperspirant deodorant prevents sweat from escaping. Our deodorant, on the other hand, works to destroy the bacteria in sweat so that they can't produce an unpleasant odour. To be effective, antiperspirants use aluminium salts, which block skin pores. These aluminium salts are said to be dangerous, following numerous studies – both recent and from several years ago. For example, a study carried out in 2003 by KG McGrath concluded that breast cancer occurred eight years earlier in women who shaved their underarms and used an antiperspirant than those who didn't use one. When women shave their underarms, the aluminium can enter the body more easily.
Three of our deodorants – with palmarosa, with a woody scent, and with bergamot and geranium – should not be used by pregnant or breastfeeding women as they contain essential oils.
But the good news is that our two deodorants for sensitive skin (marine scent and floral scent) are perfectly safe for women who are breastfeeding or pregnant!
Our deodorant doesn't leave any traces or stains on clothes.
To date, we haven't had any complaints about this happening. Sometimes you may get yellowish stains on light-coloured fabrics, but these are traces of sweat, and don't come from the deodorant.
Our deodorant can be used from the age of 12.
This deodorant was developed specially for sensitive skin, so it's bicarb-free !
Absolutely ! There are no essential oils in this one !
