What it is: A natural charcoal deodorant from Kaia Naturals in a 'Lime Mint' scent. This smell is invigorating and fresh but still light.
Why you’ll love it: Kaia Naturals offers the first natural bamboo charcoal deodorant stick on the market that is inspired by the Japanese secret for odour control and detoxification. Called the 'Takesumi Detox', because it will take approximately 2-4 weeks for your body to adjust to the use of this product, this product has quickly become one of our best sellers here at The Green Kiss.
With that said, it is important that you, our customer, understand that your body will go through a detox phase when transitioning from an antiperspirant to a natural deodorant. We have found that the average consumer takes approximately 2-4 weeks to fully transition, therefore we broke down the detox journey to a step-by-step process that some natural deodorant users may experience. Antiperspirants block sweat glands, thereby preventing you from sweating. With natural deodorant, your underarms are free to breathe, and you will soon be back to normal but odour free all day, but there is a transition 'detox' period to go through!
Here is what to expect if you are switching from an antiperspirant to one of the Kaia Naturals Takesumi Natural Deodorants:
Week 1 - The activated charcoal in the formula works to pull toxins from the body.
Week 2 - You may notice a temporary excess of perspiration, and you might smell a little bit. But don't worry! It will just be temporary! For some, the charcoal will do its job this week to neutralize any odour, but for others, it might be a week of transition! If you do notice an excess odour, the use of a charcoal soap in the shower under the arms is a great way to help!
Week 3 - You most likely will be sweating a little bit more than you are used to during week 3. Similar to week 2. But you shouldn't be smelling much :)
Week 4 - You're done! You shouldn't notice any odour or any excess perspiration. You have completed the process and the Kaia Naturals detox stick is now your daily deodorant of choice!

We switched to Kaia Naturals for deodorant from another natural line and glad we did! My husband uses this scent and loves it. Finally a natural deodorant you only need to apply once during the day. The travel size is great to throw in a purse or diaper bag just in case you want to reapply. We are hooked!
I switched over to this after using another natural deodorant which had baking soda and irritated my skin. This doesn't irritate at all and it does work! I'm not sure if I didn't need as much time to get to used to it because I was using a natural one to start, but I do think it does a good job of deodorizing. I notice that it leaves a bit of tacky sensation but only really notice if I'm going to hot yoga so that's pretty good in my book! It's a subtle fresh scent that's really neutral.
