Pure Aloe Deodorant by No Tox Life
The extra-strength aluminum-free and paraben-free vegan deodorants are designed to keep you fresh with a very light application. Since they only need one light swipe per armpit, they last much longer than ordinary deodorants.
How it works: They use enzymes to help zap the odor-causing bacteria, and bamboo extract to help absorb excess wetness. Each puck or cube will glide on lightly and smoothly.
Use only one light swipe per armpit.
Zero Waste Travel Size (no packaging or holder - store in airtight container otherwise it will get dry and hard to apply over time) | 1 oz | can last up to 2 to 4 months with regular use
What to do if it dries out: Each deodorant is made with vegan ingredients, in small batches. Since there is a high amount of aloe vera juice, it may evaporate over time and the stick 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.
High heat: 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.
