Because we care about your health! Our deodorants are free from Chemicals, Paraben, Phthalate, Aluminium, Hormone disruptors and Synthetic fragrance.
If you are considering changing to a natural deodorant, there are a couple of things you should take into consideration. You will need to keep in mind that our bodies are all very different, so therefore different results can be expect. Given there are no scientifically-proven studies on the subject as yet, we can only rely on one another’s stories and first-hand experiences.
Most people experience no difference at all when switching to a natural deodorant and find it works really well for them. However, there are a few of those who are inspired to make the change and feel good about the idea of using natural products, but find the transition a little more difficult. If this is you, then stick with it, as it is just your bodies way of adjusting.
The transition period will be different for everyone so you will just need to monitor you own bodies responses. It may take a couple days, even weeks. This is normal. Your body is going through a detox process to eliminate the build up of chemicals. These toxins have gathered in your pores after years of using a chemical antiperspirant. The aluminum in these products is used to block your sweat glands and stop you from sweating. The difference with the natural deodorant, is that it allows you to sweat but uses the plant-based ingredients to kill the bacteria which causes the smell we know as BO.
What you can expect when going through the detox process:
Increased sweating due to the sweat glands being unblocked.
A rash may appear due to the active ingredient; Bi Carb Soda. (This doesn't mean you are allergic to the deodorant, it just means your arm pits are going through a change and can get easily irritated).
Your odour may increase for a short time whilst your body is adjusting. (Exiting toxins cause bacteria and bacteria causes odour).
If you do experience an adjustment period, it is worth sticking with it. Use our starter Kit to help you on your journey. This includes our Natural Cream deodorant, our Natural Spray deodorant and The Pits detox paste along with instructions on how to best transition.
Loving the deodorant! It's a great formula. I had it on at work and despite perspiring profusely all over my armpits were dry and still smelling lovely. Really enjoying the lavender smell.
I created Survive deodorant after living with a chronic illness for the last 18 years. The only way for me to have quality of life is to eliminate chemicals and toxic products. The hardest thing to find was a deodorant which was natural but kept me dry. I was not happy with the current deodorants on the market so my Mum made one for me which I continued to use for 3 years. Using her recipe as a base I tweaked it to make it my own, adding local, organic beeswax and an aromatherapy element. Survive Deodorant is not just deodorants. I have been working hard on new and effective recipes which have been extensively tested on friends and family.
