We have formulated our deodorants with activated charcoal as it draws out toxins from your pores, while also fighting odor-causing bacteria.
We feel that it is our role to educate consumers that the body goes through a detox phasewhen transitioning from an antiperspirant to a natural deodorant. We found that the average consumer takes 2-4 weeksto fully transition, therefore we broke down the detox journey step-by-step (see stages of detox).
While using the the takesumi detox®charcoal collection, you are not just detoxing, you are making a lifestyle change.
THE STAGES OF DETOX
A 2 to 4 week transition period can be expected when transitioning from antiperspirant to natural deodorant
Studies show that antiperspirant users experienced an increase in odorous bacteria in the underarm area when they stop using antiperspirant.
NOTE:Each stage of the detox may vary depending on your body chemistry.
WEEK 1: Our activated charcoal formula pulls toxins from your pores and helps to neutralize odor.
PRO TIP: If you suffer from excessive body odor, use the underarm bar to eliminate odor-causing bacteria on your skin BEFORE applying natural deodorant.
WEEK 2: Once you stop using antiperspirant and switch to natural deodorant, you will experience an increase growth of odor-causing bacteria in the underarm area. You may also feel additional moisture. This situation is temporary.
WEEK 3: Bacteria levels may begin to subside and your body will normalize underarm moisture levels and bacteria should begin to decline.
WEEK 4: Your body should have fully adjusted to natural deodorant. Continue to use the takesumi detox® as a daily deodorant. Our charcoal formula will continue to detox and deodorize.
