Switching to natural deodorant is not as simple, unfortunately, as finding a clean, aluminum-free deodorant. It is a process and there will be sweat. Today, with the help of Kaia Naturals, we’re breaking down the best ways to detox and make the switch to natural deodorant. Kaia Naturals has not only done an amazing job creating a clean deodorant they have the process of making the switch down pat.
WHY YOU WANT TO MAKE THE SWITCH TO NATURAL DEODORANT
Conventional deodorant is one of the dirtiest products out there. Aluminum is the main antiperspirant in conventional deodorant. Aluminum is toxic to the body and studies have shown a correlation between aluminum and diseases including breast cancer and Alzheimer’s Disease.
The next offender on the ingredient list is fragrance. The term “fragrance” encompasses 1,000’s of toxic ingredients. Your armpits are an area with a large collection of lymph nodes which can carry those toxins through your body at a rapid pace. This makes the decision to to switch to clean deodorant is an easy one.
WHAT REALLY CAUSES BODY ODOR
Body odor is caused by bacteria on your skin, not the sweat coming out of your body. If you don’t want to stink you’ll need to eliminate the bacteria on your skin. The best way to do that is with Kaia Naturals Deodorant Booster Bar. The booster bar contains activated charcoal which pulls toxins from your body, and apple cider vinegar. ACV helps keep the stink causing bacteria from forming in your pits.
You’ll want to wash just your pits, and other stinky places, with the booster bar. There is no need to wash your whole body with the bar. This will ensure that your natural deodorant has a fresh and bacteria free environment to start with.
A CLEAN DEODORANT
Finding a good natural deodorant, it is like finding a good mascara. It can take a bit of trial and error. We have a few choices here and they are definitely the crème de la crème of natural deodorant.
AGENT NATUER HOLISTICK, HOLIMAN AND HOLIROSE

Just like the Booster Bar Kaia Naturals Deodorants are formulated with activated charcoal. This means the deodorant is working to trap toxins ALL DAY LONG. We currently stock 4 scent profiles.
DETOX TIME TABLE
Everybody is different so your detox time will be unique to you. On average it is around a month. We would also suggest that you make the switch during cooler months, when you’re just not sweating is much. You’ll find after a few weeks that you’re sweating very little, if at all, and there is no stink. The image below is great reference for the stages of detox.
Stick with it, it is completely worth it!
