Main assets of this solid deodorant
White clay (Kaolin)
White clair has a light color and very fine graininess. It is rich in kaolin (aluminum silicate). It was discovered in China and forms in a hot and humid climate. On contact with water, the clay swells, forms a gel with a pleasant consistency that absorbs impurities and excess sebum like a blotter. In addition, it offers a protective action to the skin. A perfect ingredient to make a solid deodorant.
Organic shea butter
Shea is a tree that can reach fifteen meters high. It grows in the African savannas. It is from its nuts, containing up to 50% lipids, that shea butter is extracted, so popular today all over the world. Shea butter is an ideal active ingredient for skin care, due to its lipid-replenishing and smoothing action. It gives this deodorant a gentle, protective and nourishing action. It moisturizes to help reduce skin irritation, especially after shaving.
In cosmetics, beeswax has many virtues. Rich in vitamin A, it hydrates the skin while protecting it from the sun, cold or wind. It is also soothing and healing for problem or sensitive skin. Beeswax also has excellent restorative properties. It restores suppleness and comfort to your skin. Plus, it absorbs and retains moisture, leaving your skin fresh and supple. The beeswax contained in this deodorant is produced by Christian, in Belle île en mer, organically. It preserves the black bee of Brittany and just for that, it's magic.
Organic tea tree essential oil
The tea tree, more commonly called "Tea Tree" is native to Australia. It is a small tree with alternate needle-like leaves. Its name comes from the tea that was traditionally prepared from the leaves. Tea Tree essential oil is obtained by steam distillation of the leaves. This oil has many properties: it is healing, anti-inflammatory, analgesic and helps fight against itching. Broad-spectrum antibacterial, antifungal, stimulating and invigorating, Tea Tree essential oil gives this solid deodorant the ideal properties to annihilate bacteria in perspiration before they can give off an unpleasant odor.
How to use this deodorant?
Push from the bottom of the tube to release the solid deodorant. Apply under the armpits after slightly moistening your skin, or apply it directly to your armpits, which are still damp after a shower.
How much solid deodorant should I use and will I get white marks on my clothes ?
When you apply your solid deodorant to each armpit, it should be moist and leave a thin, transparent layer on the skin. It should slide like a bar of soap between wet hands. This film will dry quickly and won't leave any white marks on your clothes. For maximum effectiveness, I recommend that you cover your underarms from top to bottom and from right to left. A good, thin layer is more effective than a thick, localised layer.
Is this deodorant suitable for pregnant women ?
This solid deodorant is suitable for pregnant women from 3 months of pregnancy.
What's the difference between an anti-perspirant deodorant and this solid deodorant ?
As the name suggests, an antiperspirant deodorant prevents perspiration from escaping, whereas this deodorant nibbles away at the bacteria in perspiration before they can give off an unpleasant odour. To be effective, antiperspirants use aluminium salts, which close the skin's pores. These aluminium salts are reputed to be dangerous, following a number of old and recent studies. A study conducted by K G McGrath in 2003 concluded that breast cancer occurred 8 years earlier in women who shaved their armpits and used an antiperspirant than in those who did not. Shaving the armpits allows aluminium to enter the body more easily.
Did you know ?
Sweating is an essential natural physiological need for the body. It allows the elimination of toxins, the maintenance of good hydration, the regulation of body temperature and a normal pH of the skin. This essential mechanism for the body could go completely unnoticed without the appearance of sweat stains under the armpits and bad odors (due to the breakdown of sweat and its decomposition).
Of course, nobody likes to smell sweat! However, this is not a reason to expose your body to the questionable substances contained in certain industrial deodorants. These contain bactericides which block the natural sweating mechanism and synthetic fragrances which serve to mask bad odors but are accused of causing allergies and skin irritations.
Finally, like many industrial cosmetic products, the classic deodorant may contain substances that act as endocrine disruptors.
