Ingredients, What we left out is just as important as what we put in:
Cocos Nucifera [Coconut] Oil, Zea Mays [Corn] Starch, Sodium Bicarbonate, Oryza Sativa [Rice] Bran Wax, Hydrogenated Soybean Oil, Ricinus Communis [Castor] Seed Oil, Hydrated Silica, Mentha Arvensis Leaf Oil *, Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Copernicia Cerifera [Carnauba] Wax
*Denotes Certified Organic
- Corn Starch: Corn starch soaks up excess moisture and helps to keep your armpits feeling dry.
- Coconut Oil: Kills bacteria, fungi, and yeast which is what happens when sweat interacts with your body and causes body odour. Therefore, getting rid of the problem of body odour in a totally natural way along with the other ingredients works a treat.
- Sodium Bicarbonate: helps to naturally neutralise odours by eradicating bacteria.
- Peppermint Essential Oil: (Certified Organic)- contains natural cooling and soothing properties. Perfect in deodorant because of its fresh scent, but the oil extracted from the leaves also has natural antiseptic properties, and helps to balance your skin's pH level.
If you have sensitive skin, you might want to start with our sensitive deodorant first.
Do these deodorants actually work? I’ve tried so many natural deodorants that don’t work, why should I try yours?
Yes, ours really and truly work! All of our team have tried and tested these formulations over many months. The team packed hundreds of Christmas orders, long days, in 85% humidity wearing and testing these formulations, so we can say without a doubt - they are great and they work! We have tested many of the other natural brands too and have been disappointed so we wanted to make a plastic-free, toxin-free deodorant that really works and we did it! We hope you enjoy it too.
What makes the Sensitive Deodorant suitable for sensitive skin?
Due to the inclusion of Tapioca Starch - best suited for sensitive skin, this formulation contains fewer amounts of Baking Soda, which can be irritating to some skin types. Of course, as with any skincare product, if you do notice any sensitivities we suggest you stop using it right away.
Are these deodorants antiperspirant?
No, they are not. We believe that it is good to sweat, it’s a natural function that our bodies are designed to do. Many antiperspirants contain harmful ingredients which block sweat glands.
So if you’re switching from an antiperspirant deodorant you might find that you go through a little transition phase (without body odour) but with some natural sweating as your body adjusts.
Usually, this does not last! Testers from Seed & Sprout HQ can attest to no wet pits after a brief adjustment time.
Do these deodorants contain aluminium?
No, they don’t.
I have sensitive skin, which deodorant should I try?
Start with the sensitive deodorant and see how you go.
What do they smell like?
Both deodorants contain essential oils, the natural version containing higher amounts of bi-carb smells like peppermint and the sensitive version smells like subtle rose geranium.
I like the idea but I don’t want to touch my armpits, what should I do?
That’s ok! We have designed a bamboo applicator just for you, so you don’t have to get up in there if you don’t want to.
Will this deodorant stain my clothes?
No, our deodorants won’t stain your clothes or leave any oily residue behind.
How long will it last?
We would conservatively say it will last for 12 months before opening, and 6 months after opening. Each deodorant tin is designed to last about 4-6weeks for most people (depending on how much you use).
Why did you use Tapioca Starch instead of Arrowroot powder in the sensitive deodorant?
Both are great ingredients for a sensitive deodorant, we chose tapioca starch because it is more shelf-stable than arrowroot powder.
Can you make refills? Or can I send my deodorant or lip balm back to you to be refilled?
Not at the moment, due to the consistency of the products and also for hygiene purposes. If we accepted packaging back to us then we would need to sterilise them and it wouldn’t work from a hygiene standpoint. Plus, the refill packaging going back and forth creates an unnecessary carbon footprint. These slider tins make great handy containers for bobby pins, hair ties, jewellery when travelling and many other things and they are 100% recyclable at their end of life.
Why do you use bi-carb (sodium bicarbonate) and will you be making one without this in the future?
It is the simplest and most effective natural ingredient for combating body odour. We have a sensitive formulation which has far less bi-carb in it which many of our team with sensitive skin tested with great success and no reaction (they normally react to regular natural deodorant). Customer feedback is fundamental to what we make and create at Seed & Sprout, so if this is heavily requested we will probably do it.
