You can't beat a deodorant that goes on clear, doesn't stain clothing and stops odor before it starts. I am so happy to have been inspired to develop this formula—an inspiration that came from many of you who frequently inquired about a clear deodorant formula. All Clear Deodorant Spray is our response.
The lightly scented formula mists on and dries quickly. No mess, no crumbling. If you're pregnant, menopausal, peri-menopausal, a heavy sweater, have hyperhidrosis (like me!), a runner, brisk walker, hiker, UPS or FedEx driver, boxer, weightlifter, dancer, a sleeve-less wearer, etc., this is THAT deodorant. Our deodorant spray is a game changer for the younger ones experiencing puberty funk. No onion, no funk. For most users, no smell at all.
As a matter of fact, throughout the testing phase, many of our volunteers were caught off guard (in a good way!) because they smelled nothing—not even the essential oils that had been added. So often, we've been conditioned to believe that scent signals the level of cleanliness that we've forgotten that clean can smell like nothing and be a good thing. In the case of this highly effective deodorant formula, it's a nothingness I've come to love and am willing to live with.
So let's get familiar with our new deodorant spray! Read on for more about this life-changing formula.
Ingredients: witch hazel, water, magnesium chloride, litsea cubeba essential oil, lavender essential oil, tea tree essential oil.
Directions for Use: Apply to clean underarms. ALWAYS shake well before each use. This ensures that all ingredients make it through the sprayer tube and onto your 'pits TOGETHER. Using 3 - 4 sprays, completely mist underarms. Let dry before dressing. Rubbing in will help formula dry quicker.
Cautions: To avoid irritation, do not use on freshly shaved underarms. Avoid spraying in eyes and mucus membranes. Do not ingest. Keep out of reach of children.
Available Sizes: 2 oz and 4 oz
A few things about magnesium chloride, an active ingredient in the formula.
It is thought that many Americans are magnesium deficient. Magnesium chloride used topically is seen as a good way to get magnesium into the body. As a matter of fact, some would argue that topical use is superior to taking internally or soaking in Epsom salt (a different form of magnesium).
The magnesium chloride used in our deodorant spray is food grade, derived from sea water. The process requires the extraction of sodium chloride and evaporation of water. What's left is magnesium chloride. Some people take magnesium chloride internally. DO NOT attempt to use the deodorant formula internally, as it also contains essential oils and witch hazel.
If you're using a product containing magnesium chloride for the first time, here are a couple of things to keep in mind:
- Some people may initially experience slight stinging at the application site. This should dissipate in a few days.
- If you shave, it's suggested that you wait 24 hours—at a minimum, overnight—before using a deodorant containing magnesium chloride due to microscopic cuts that can be caused by shaving.
- If you decide to rub the formula in to help it dry quicker, be sure to wash your hands with soap and water afterwards; otherwise, magnesium chloride may dry out your hands.
On to Application Pointers
Some of you will go through more of an adjustment period than others when you first begin using the deodorant. Don't give up easily. Give it a few days. Send us e-mails. We may be able to help.
If you're someone who seems to always be "that one," when it comes to having a deodorant NOT work for you, I suggest washing your underarms using only water and a washcloth. Only water and a washcloth, you say? Yes, that's exactly what I said.
You see, sometimes, leftover soap residue can feed bacteria turning it smelly. A good (gentle) scrubbing with only water works wonders to cut down on bacteria gone bad.
Also, it's okay to moisturize your underarms before applying your deodorant, just don't overdo it.
Stop use of this formula immediately, if you notice irritation or redness.
