Our earthy long lasting Patchouli deodorant is made with Sodium Bicarbonate (Baking Soda), Organic Cocoa Butter, Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Arrow Root Powder, Candelilla Wax, non GMO Vitamin E, and Patchouli essential oil. This is a vegan deodorant.
I have previously tried using powdered deodorant formulations made by others with baking soda and have found them to be irritating. This balm form helps balance the baking soda with conditioning Cocoa Butter and Olive oil. A small percentage of people may experience allergy or irritation from the baking soda. Based on feedback from customers we think that micro traumas from shaving or waxing may predispose the skin to sensitivity to baking soda. Therefore, use with care after shaving, for example shave at night and apply deodorant in the morning. If you would like to test this deodorant in a smaller container before using it, you can find it in the deodorant section. Please discontinue using any product that may be causing you skin irritation or allergic reaction.
