Summer Sage Deo a natural deodorant stick with fresh, sage and lemon fragrances.
From 2019, in an environmentally friendly biodegradable cardboard container.
With a skin-friendly but strongly antibacterial formula, this deodorant doesn’t totally hinder the body’s normal function of sweating but reduces it and works on at least three levels against unpleasant odour.
One tube lasts several months, even with two applications a day. Usually, one application is enough, especially after the transition period to a natural deodorant.
Sage is known for its sebaceous gland regulating qualities, with astringent and antiperspirant qualities. Sage essential oil along with tea-tree, lemon and rosemary essential oils, through their antiseptic and antibacterial effect, inhibit the growth of bacteria that cause unpleasant odours. Their potency is tripled by zinc oxide and coconut oil. Baking soda provides an alkaline environment for bacteria to grow and inhibits possible odours.
Cornstarch absorbs some of the sweat, thus contributing as much as possible to a dry feeling. In addition, shea and cocoa butters and beeswax form a moisturizing film that prevents skin irritation and nourishes sensitive underarm skin with the properties of a solid lotion. Useful to know: Apply Summer Sage Deodorant very thinly to clean, dry skin, even after waxing. If necessary, massage the underarm area to help absorb the oils. This will avoid white marks on your clothes. Any marks come out when washing. If you know you have a sensitivity to baking soda, you can try this deodorant instead: Basic Deo (available in three fragrance options)
For the cardboard tube, raise the level of the deodorant a little at a time by pressing your finger on the base of the container (firmly and carefully so as not to raise the level too much) If you have raised the level of the deodorant too much, repeatedly tap the base against a hard surface until it returns to its home.
Consider a period of time for your body to adjust to the new deodorant, especially if you’re just making the transition from conventional. You may sweat more and even smell worse for the first couple of weeks. It’s a period of detoxification of the underarm area and the bacteria in that area need time to balance out.
