This all-natural yet powerful deodorant cream utilises superfine vegetable powders, clays, and lavender, peppermint and tea tree essential oils to absorb moisture, inhibit bacteria, and ensure a long-lasting and highly effective experience. The frosting-like consistency ensures effortless manual application and quick absorption.

Ideal for all skin types. Soapwalla's Deodorant Cream is free from harmful chemicals, petroleum, and aluminum (linked to alzheimer's and breast cancer), is vegan, and is never ever tested on animals.

Scoop a small amount with your finger and gently apply to the armpit. Allow cream to absorb completely, then go about your day stink-free!

If you are switching from conventional deodorant or antiperspirant to a natural deodorant such as Soapwalla's, it can require 14 - 28 days of twice-daily deodorant cream application before the body starts to re-regulate sweating and odour - a sort of detox period, if you will. I recommend exfoliating the underarm area a few times a week with a washcloth, especially during this time, which will help your body re-calibrate itself. And I recommend drinking lots of water to help your body during this adjustment period.

I also highly recommend stirring the deodorant really well before using (and especially the first time you open a new jar). Sometimes during transit, the deodorant liquefies and resolidifies and during the time it was liquefied the clay and powders (which are heavier than the oils) sunk to the bottom of the jar, and the essential oils floated to the top, which make them more concentrated than usual. Even if the jar arrived in a solid state, it's always a good idea to mix the cream for a good 15 - 30 seconds before your next use - almost whip it with your finger or a chopstick to really incorporate the ingredients. Then pop it in the fridge for 30-45 minutes for everything to solidify. 99 times of 100 this clears up any potential issue.

You can build up the product as needed, and make sure that the product is properly rubbed in. The biggest issue here is that if you apply too much too quickly, the skin can't absorb it as well and it sits on top of the skin, making it much easier to transfer onto clothing. Taking a few seconds to massage in the deodorant will do the trick!

If you're sensitive to Lavender oil then the Citrus version of Soapwalla Deodorant Cream is ideal. For me personally, I prefer the 'original' version. But the Soapwalla Citrus still works just as well in terms of keeping you stink free all day. I find the consistency of this Citrus version to be slightly runny-er, making it easy and beautiful to gently apply to arm pits. If you have sensitive little arm pits and are looking for a natural deodorant that works then this is the one for you.
