No Tox Life's extra-strength aluminum-free and paraben-free vegan deodorants are designed to keep you fresh with a very light application. You only need one light swipe per armpit, they last much longer than ordinary deodorants.
How it works: No Tox Life's No Waste Deodorant's 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. This concentrated deodorant is strong and effective. Use only one light swipe per armpit.
Transition period from aluminum deodorant: Aluminum based antiperspirants include big brand products, as well as alternative products like crystal sticks, alum sticks and mineral salt sticks. When switching away from these, you might experience a detox effect for a few days to a couple weeks. To purchase the underarm detox bar click here.
Re-apply as needed: You may want to reapply during the first few weeks until the detoxing is finished. To reapply, first wipe the area dry, then just use one light swipe to refresh your protection. After the detox period, the deodorant should last 8 hours without need to reapply.
If you shave, wax or epilate, or for sensitive skin: As with any deodorant, it is not recommended applying directly after shaving or hair removal, and it is recommended 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.
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 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. 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.

I'm an a very active male who has always used Right Guard sport. In an effort to become more environmentally friendly, I have been trying more natural products. I was skeptical of this deodorant because it didn't come in a can. I have been using it for three weeks now and like it a lot. It lasts all day, even through workouts. I strongly recommend.
