If you're looking to make the switch to KIND-LY 100% Natural Deodorant - congratulations and welcome! If this is your first time using a natural deodorant, there's a few things to be aware of:
After many years of using commercial aluminium-based antiperspirants and deodorants, it may take your body a little time to adjust to an all-natural deodorant. This is because aluminium blocks your sweat glands to stop you sweating and your body becomes reliant on these chemical nasties, essentially forgetting how to naturally correct any bacterial imbalances on its own.
Once you switch to a natural deodorant and stop using aluminium to clog all those underarm glands, some people may find they go through an initial "detox" period, where they sweat or smell more than usual. Not to fear! It's not that your natural deodorant doesn't work, it's simply the body expelling all of those toxins that have been trapped in your armpits all this time!
This detox period can last anywhere from a couple of days, to a couple of weeks, depending on the person. Please stick with it, your body will adjust and be healthier for it!
To assist with the detox period, KIND-LY created The Armpit Detox - a 7 day armpit mask that helps draw out impurities, clear skin and assist in the transition to natural deodorant. It's the perfect companion to KIND-LY 100% Natural Deodorant.
It's also important to note that a natural deodorant is not an antiperspirant (as it doesn't contain aluminium). That means you may still sweat when wearing a natural deodorant, but that's perfectly natural and shows your body is functioning how it should! Remember: sweat is your friend, but it doesn't have to stink!
KIND-LY 100% Natural Deodorant works to keep you fresh, dry and odour free, whilst still allowing your body to breathe and release toxins naturally.
