Many commercial deodorants are antiperspirants. When you make the switch to a 100% natural deodorant you are going to have to make peace with the beads of sweat under your arms.
I stopped using antiperspirants in 2001. It was then I learnt that the ingredients used in antiperspirants that stops me sweating are neurotoxins.
Neurotoxins are poisons. These poisons act on your nervous system. It dawned on me I had become ‘conditioned’ by clever marketing to believe that perspiring under my arms was bad.
Want to know what helped me make the switch? I did the research and learned about the function of my approx. 3 million sweat glands. These sweat glands are my friends and what I learnt convinced me perspiration is keeping me healthy. Our bodies use our sweat glands to get rid of the build up of waste products like toxic metals that accumulate in our bodies and regulate our temperature. Both are vital functions.
When I made the switch to natural deodorants and accepted perspiration, I realised my greatest frustration was that none of the deodorants I used were effective at neutralising odour. The odour is caused by bacteria breaking down the protein from underarm sweat, into acids.
They say necessity is the mother of invention and from personal experience I can tell you it is true. It was my frustration that led me to developingAxilla Deodorant Paste™.
I hadn’t intended to develop a deodorant, but my personal needs for one propelled it to the top of the research and development schedule.
Many hours of ingredient testing many antibacterial formulations and many willing human’s offering their underarms went into the testing before we cracked it, and found just the right combination of ingredients that is in our much-loved Axilla Deodorant Paste™.
Axilla Deodorant Paste – 7 Things You Need To Know
- How much to Apply. Use only ½ a pea to a pea sized amount and massage it in a slow circular motion in the pit area. More is not better; a little paste is just as effective. Axilla Deodorant Paste will not mark clothes or leave white marks when it is massaged in completely. The paste is rapidly absorbed into the underarm skin.
- When to Apply. Axilla is best applied when your armpit skin has not been subjected to tiny cuts and scrapes from shaving. If you apply Axilla directly after shaving, the hard to see cuts and scrapes will absorb the product and this can cause irritation. We recommend shaving at night before bed.
- Sensitivity to bicarbonate soda. People who are sensitive to bicarbonate soda can try massaging a little pure coconut oil in the armpits, before applying Axilla Deodorant Paste as directed. If sensitivity persists stop using it.
- Storage. Store the tub at room temperature. The ingredients in the product are 100% natural and free from harmful ingredients and chemical hardeners. The natural ingredients in the product respond to temperature changes and the product consistency can become harder or softer. Direct sunlight will also soften the contents. This will not affect the product effectiveness. Place the tub in the fridge to firm up and continue to use as normal.
- It requires you to use your fingers to massage the Paste under your arms. It can take a little getting used to. Initially it might feel unfamiliar because you’ve been so used to not touching your underarm area, but that passes quickly.
- Re-application. There is no need to re-apply Axilla Deodorant Paste during the day even if heading to the gym. When showering after a workout, re-apply.
- It is not an antiperspirant. Axilla Deodorant Paste will not plug up your sweat glands like an antiperspirant; in that way it is your immune systems friend.
