WHAT TO EXPECT

THE STAGES OF DETOX 

If you are switching from antiperspirant to natural deodorant, there will be a transition period.

Week 1

On the first week of the transition, everything seems normal

Week 2

Studies show when you stop using antiperspirant, your body will temporarily produce more odor-causing bacteria. Use the underarm bar to manage the additional odor.

Week 3

Moisture levels start to normalize but some odor may remain.

Week 4

Your body should begin to adjust to using natural deodorant.

FAQ's

The charcoal is grey, will it stain my clothing?

Although the natural deodorant is grey, it goes on clear. There will be no white marks or yellow stains, as it is an aluminum-free deodorant. 

Will I still sweat while using the takesumi detox?

The takesumi detox is a deodorant that will help keep body odor away; however, it cannot stop sweating. Aluminum is the main sweat blocking ingredient in antiperspirant and is not natural. The takesumi detox is an aluminum-free deodorant as aluminum clogs pores to prevent the natural process of sweating. Noticing a temporary excess of perspiration and body odor is normal since you need time to rebalance to start working normally again. 

How long does the odor control last?

The takesumi detox charcoal deodorant fights odor causing bacteria for up to 12 hours. 

I’m a super smelly person what can I do?

If you are needing extra odor protection while transitioning or for those intense workout days, use the underarm bar to give yourself an extra protective barrier from odor causing bacteria. 

Is this deodorant only used as a detox?

It starts off as a detox but after you transition, use as a daily natural deodorant. Continue to use the takesumi detox charcoal deodorant after you have fully detoxed from your old deodorant or antiperspirant, to continue allowing toxins and bacteria to not build up under your underarms. For extra protection, use the takesumi detox underarm bar on your smelly parts. 

Is this safe to use while pregnant or breastfeeding?

Yes! We take pride in having clean and natural ingredients in all our products. Our the takesumi detox charcoal deodorant is safe for all women breastfeeding and pregnant as it is free of all harmful chemicals, such as aluminum, that would otherwise absorb into your underarms.

The best natural deodorant

I’ve tried every natural deodorant around and this is the best one by far. There is not even a close second. I’ve been using this for years and won’t ever change.

Great deodorant, not so great packaging.

I'm giving this 5 stars because I have been pleasantly surprised by the effectiveness of the takesumi detox charcoal deodorant (in combination with the underarm bar), but I'm not a fan of the dispenser. The deodorant fell out of the dispenser when it seemed to be about half used, and I now have to take the deodorant out of the dispenser every time I need to apply it as it will not stay in the container. It will be interesting to see if the next one I've ordered does the same thing.

Best natural deodorant I've come across

In an effort to steer clear from harmful chemicals, I have been on a quest to find an effective and sensitive product. This charcoal brand does not irritate my skin, does not leave a residue or stain my clothing, and is effective enough that I've gotten it for my 14 year old son. I have been faithful to this for a year now, coupled with the underarm bar, and recommend it to friends and family looking to make a switch. I also use their dry shampoo, and wish they'd include a body spray in their line.

Works for me and smells great

After many unsuccessful attempts at finding a natural deodorant, I’m grateful for finding Kaia Naturals. It works and smells great!
