Ditch the harsh chemicals - show your armpits the love they deserve with this refreshing natural deodorant. An extra-gentle skin-soothing deodorant that works to effectively control unwanted odor-causing bacteria.
This natural deodorant uses key ingredients that have anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties that get to the root cause of armpit odor, bacteria, without the cost of any harmful synthetic ingredients or chemicals that can break down your armpit skin’s natural barrier and microbiome.
Copal and lemongrass possess powerful anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties and work together to help eradicate the bacteria in armpits that cause unwanted odor. Not only do they help eliminate the odor, but they also leave armpits with a fresh, natural, and herbal aroma that is unisex. Tierra & Lava's copal is wild harvested from the Mayan village of Uaxactún. Their lemongrass, which is a traditional scent of Mesoamérica, comes directly from their own garden.
Cocoa butter and coconut oil, which are also locally and sustainably sourced, both act to protect and moisturize skin. Believe it or not, our armpits are home to 20 lymphnodes. We aren’t here to give you a biology lesson but our lymph nodes are a vitally important part of our immune system and serve to filter out toxins from our tissues. Our armpits deserve to be cared for in a way that reflects their fundamentally important role as a part of our body. Their natural ingredients help to nourish and protect our armpit’s and show them the love they deserve.
Includes an “Armpit Detox” that preps skin to maximize their deodorants' benefits.
If you are new to natural deodorants or have been looking around for one, you may be aware of the stinky ‘transition period’ during which your body adjusts to using a natural deodorant in place of your previous ones. This can be an awkward time to get through as no-one wants to have bad smelling armpits in a business meeting or in public.
This is where their ‘Armpit Detox’ provides an unmatched value. Not only does it eliminate the whole transition period, meaning that our deodorant is effective immediately, but it is also a fun, novel experience for a part of the body that doesn’t normally get this kind of attention. Treat yourself to an armpit mask with Mayan Red Clay and Volcanic Sulphur and see the difference for yourself.
Why it works - the clay is rich is calcite, iron and other minerals and has a low PH which is unusual for a clay - often clay masks recommend combining with apple cider vinegar or other low PH product in order to lower the PH. The lower PH is important because the higher (more alkaline) the PH of the skin, the more possibility there is of body-odor producing bacteria. The yin to the clay’s yang is the volcanic sulfur, hand collected from the active volcanoes in Guatemala. Sulphur works to dry out problem areas while exfoliating and shedding dead skin cells to make way for newer healthy skin, which kills bacteria and prevents it from spreading.
Instructions: Mix the contents of the sachet with a little water to make a paste. Apply the paste to the armpits and let it dry for 10-15min. Rinse in the shower.
