Organic Botanical Deodorant
This was the first Voi product ever made. After a one year trial on multiple participants Voi created a deodorant that stops the stink and provides all day protection, even when exercising! This organic deodorant paste is made from a refreshing blend of organic oils, butters, essential oils and superfine powders that work to inhibit the growth of odour-causing bacteria and assist in reducing excessive perspiration. Free from any nasty chemicals or synthetics (e.g. aluminium, paraffin, PEGs) it is easy to apply and leaves no sticky residue. It can also be applied to feet to prevent foot odour.
Just a note…..Conventional deodorants/ Anti-perspirants contain particles (aluminium, paraffin etc.) that plug sweat ducts – this is what stops underarm sweat and masks unpleasant odours. However when you stop using conventional deodorants the pores slowly start to unclog and release these toxins. It is these toxins that can initially cause a stink which makes you think the ‘natural deodorant’ is not working – but that’s not the case. To combat this initial release of toxins (1-2 weeks), when you’re in the shower at night, get a flannel/loofah with soap and scrub your armpits for about 30 secs to 1 min. This helps to unblock the pores quicker and releases any lodged toxins.
Using spatula provided, dispense a pea sized amount and rub on underarms. Wait until dry before dressing.
