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.

Great deodorant!

I’d been searching for a natural deodorant that doesn’t have baking soda or excessive oils as an ingredient. I’ve been using this deodorant for a few weeks now and really enjoy it. It smells fresh and keeps me stinky free!

Great product!

I was a bit nervous to go from a natural antiperspirant to a deodorant. Nervous for the sweat! But I have not noticed much of a difference, which is great! I do have to reapply the deodorant during the day to stay fresh, but much better then the smell with the antiperspirant.
