Please note that as of October 2014 this formula has been improved and has a slightly different INCI.
Deodorant Base: This multi-purpose base can be used as an aluminum-free deodorant base or a glide stick to reduce friction during strenuous activities like running or biking. It dries quickly after application and is oil-free so you don't have to worry about the greasy sticky residue that tends to come from conventional deodorant alternatives. Contains special natural enzymes that help eliminate body odor by fighting odor causing bacteria. Skin moisturizing aloe vera gives this base a cool refreshing feel and imparts a silky smooth quality.
This base is quick and easy to melt down making it a breeze to repackage. Simply scoop the amount you need into a microwave safe bowl and pop it in the microwave in 15-20 second intervals until fully melted and pour into desired applicator. We recommend trying our standard or mini deodorant tubes for packaging. When heating make sure to keep the temperature below 130F: excess heat will degrade the special odor fighting enzyme that helps you stay fresh smelling.
Safety Note: Underarms can be particularly sensitive to fragrance and essential oils. Check the usage rate for your particular oil in our fragrance calculator- and use the lowest recommended useage under the "Lotion" category to help avoid sensitivity.
Note: The 4 oz size is 4 oz by volume and 4.7 oz by weight. All other quanties are measured by weight.

I add a few ingredients for my aluminum-free deodorant. My customers report that the scent holds all day, they don't sweat, and they love the feel. Now buying this is the gallon size.
My customers value ingredients that they can pronounce. I would love to know more about the ingredients here. For instance, DPG or Dipropylene Glycol, what is it made from? I ask because I LOVE this deodorant, it works great and is a great alternative to baking soda recipes, which burn my skin even at low percentages. But I would like to know what I'm using! Thanks :)
I love this. I have finally found a deoderan that doesn't irritate me and acually works. No more having to reapply deoderant every few hours. Also using it on my son who has reactions to everything. He has had no rashes.
I had a really high hopes for this product. The first day I used it, everything was great. Minimal odor at the end of the day. I thought I was finally on oto something. I used it for a second day, and noticed that my armpits were red and my skin was peeling. I have seen the reviews where others have had this reaction and I thought it was the FO's they were using. For this reason, I used this deodorant straight out of the container with no additives. My arm pits are so red and irritated. But hey, they don't stink. ;) I will wait until my pits are healed and try diluting it and see if that helps.
I have been using this for a couple years and love it. My customers love it too. I love that it is aluminum free. After having breast cancer I no longer use commerical deordorant. I am curious though how natural is this base? Can I advertise it as natural?
