Deodorant Puck - Earl Grey
Earl Grey (Bergamot Italian Orange) with a hint of herb garden makes a pleasant, light, non-gender specific fragrance.
Designed to keep you fresh with a very light application...one light swipe per arm pit.
How it works: We use enzymes to help zap the odor-causing bacteria, and bamboo extract to help absorb excess wetness. Each puck will glide on lightly and smoothly.
New extra strength formula: This concentrated deodorant is strong and effective. Use only one light swipe per armpit.
As with any deodorant, we do not recommend applying directly after shaving or hair removal, and we recommend using an extra layer of cream or moisturizer (a small bit of shea butter works great) first if the skin is particularly sensitive and prone to irritation. Apply the moisturizer or oil or butter first then apply the deodorant.
What to do if it dries out:
Each deodorant is handmade with vegan ingredients, in small batches. Since there is a high amount of aloe vera juice, it may evaporate over time and the puck will become drier, and glide less. This doesn't mean it's no longer working - it still will work and be effective. You can re-hydrate it by spritzing with water or using a wet finger to get the “slippery” feeling again.
Store in airtight container:
For the unpackaged deodorants, keep it in an airtight container to prevent the aloe vera juice from evaporating. This is especially a factor in dry climates.
Keep your deodorant out of direct heat or sun (for example your car in the summer) because your deodorant could melt at very high temperatures.
