These deodorants, packaged in compostable tubes, are a favorite. Locally made using organic plant oils and butters to moisturize and condition, preventing odor with magnesium hydroxide.

What might you expect when switching from an antiperspirant to a deodorant? It’s not uncommon for the body to go through a detoxification period when switching from an antiperspirant to a non-toxic deodorant. Your body wants to release all those toxins, and does it by sweating them out. The detox period (if any) can last anywhere from 1-5 days or 2-3 weeks depending on the person. It’s important to allow this transition to happen and to not give up on non-toxic deodorant if it doesn't work for your body right away (aka if you still smell bad).
Packaging: Tubes are completely compostable in your home compost bin.
