General Questions

Antiperspirants are designed to reduce sweating while deodorants are designed to cover up the smell. Antiperspirants usually include aluminum-based compounds that temporarily block sweat pores. Blocking sweat pores reduces the amount of perspiration that reaches your skin. There’s a concern that if the skin absorbs these aluminum compounds, they can affect the estrogen receptors of breast cells. 

Deodorants are formulated to eliminate armpit odor but not perspiration. When applied, they turn your skin acidic, which makes it less attractive to bacteria. The addition of essential oils helps to create a fresh scent which helps you smell fresh throughout the day.

Sweating is your body's natural way to cool down and eliminate toxins. We believe that avoiding ingredients such aluminum, phthalates, and preservatives, found in most conventional deodorant products, is always worthwhile for your health and well being. It's why we created a product that fixes your stink without disturbing your body’s natural biome. 

Our deodorant offers excellent odor protection and is formulated with natural ingredients like zinc ricinoleate which eliminates unpleasant body odors and protects against odor causing bacteria from forming on the skin. Our unique scents made with essential oils and natural extracts will keep you smelling fresh well past the finish line. 

Individuals who have used standard deodorants and antiperspirants for years are likely to have produced excess bad bacteria in the armpit, which increases odor and causes more sweating. Just by switching to a natural deodorant like Human Essentials will start the detoxifying process. 

If you notice you are experiencing rashes, excessive sweating and odor while transitioning this is normal. Most humans take about 14 days to rid their pits of the bacteria build up. Be patient and feel free to email us if you have any questions. vide the answer to the question here.
