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.

Best natural deodorant

I've tried many natural deodorants and this one has been by far the best. As with all natural deodorants it takes your body some time to adjust but once adjusted this deodorant works. I am a runner and heavy sweater so finding something that accommodates smell and sweat without the aluminum and other nasty chemicals has been a life changer.

On my third!

Love Kaia Naturals Takesumi Detox Charcoal deodorant, so much so I am on my third bottle! Sakura Blossom has a lovely fresh scent and goes on smoothly with no build-up or lumps. It has never dis coloured my clothes nor left a stain. The only downside is that it falls out of the holder when you get down to the last 3/4inch, not a big problem if you keep it level while applying. Lasts a long time, highly recommend it!

The takesumi detox charcoal deodorant

I am thoroughly enjoying this product, aside from the healthier benefits in deodorant use, it feels silky smooth on the skin and the light scent is delightful. Wonderful product, highly recommend.
