Why Optiphen?

I would love to buy this deodorant base but the Optiphen is off putting. Any way to make a deodorant base with out this ingredient?

The Optiphen preservative is needed in the the Aluminum Free Deodorant Base since it contains water. Though it is both paraben and formaldehyde free. Without the preservative bacteria could grow in the base and negatively affect the active yeast.

Works great

I use this and add a couple drops of Silver Citrate and it works amazing! It glides better when you add a little water to it before wiping on. No skin sensitivity here.

Love this but wish bulk prices were cheaper

I would love to be able to sell this because it works great for me. But at $20.80 per pound it's just too expensive for anything other than personal use. Wish you would offer more of a discount for bulk Anne Marie!

Love this base

I do really love the base! I have found it makes me a little itchy, even when fragrance oils are used minimally. I hoping customer service may have suggestion on an extract to add to this base to minimize the itchiness? Even with the itchiness, I still love this base :)

Total Flop Bad Results

Tried a small batch and followed recipe exactly and my armpits got itchy after the third day of use then it got red and my skin started peeling like crazy. I let it heal then tried the same formula but no fragrance as advised by brambleberry customer service and same result, irritation and then skin molting in chunks. I had a couple people try as samples with a warning, and they also had armpit irritaion and peeling skin. P

Hi Margarita! I'm so sorry this base didn't work for you! We love our Aluminum Free Deodorant Base and find it to be super gentle on our underarms by itself and even when fragranced, as seen in our Cucumber Melon Deodorant Tutorial. Though, everyone is different and have varying sensitivities especially when trying out a product meant for such a delicate area. Customer service has contacted you directly to resolve this issue :-)
