When I rotate the base on my twist-up tube it spins but the deodorant won’t come out. Am I doing it wrong?
Twisting the tube base when the deodorant is cold will result in failure of the internal mechanism! Change in temperature during shipping may cause the deodorant to expand and stick to the tube walls. Please allow the deodorant tube to reach room temperature before using. DO NOT FORCE. For best results, squeeze the base of the tube while twisting. This will free the product from its packaging. If you break the internal mechanism of the deodorant tube, please contact us before opening any additional purchased items. Please view our return policy below.
So SodaWax is natural, but does it work?
We spent a year developing and testing our formula before offering it to the public.
The combination of ingredients work together to kill the odor causing bacteria, not mask it with perfumes.
It really works! …and lasts the whole day long.
I developed a slight rash and redness in my armpit after applying the deodorant. Am I allergic?
Sorry to hear that you had a reaction to one of the natural ingredients in SodaWax. You probably aren’t “allergic” to our deodorant, but most likely have a sensitivity to one of the ingredients. The usual suspects are either the baking soda or the essential oils. When the alkaline baking soda is applied to our acidic underarms, a chemical reaction occurs. The higher the acid in your sweat, the bigger the reaction. This happens to a small few of our customers whose bodies have high acid mantle pH levels.
Sometimes the irritation is just part of the detox period that occurs when an antiperspirant wearer switches to natural. In this case it’s just temporary. If the issue continues, please try our Aloelujah baking soda-free natural deodorant designed for people with these sensitivity concerns.
Why is powdered sugar one of the ingredients?
Sugar is a natural antibacterial and preservative. Sugar paste has been used to dress wounds for decades. Here’s a link that explains in further detail: outdoorselfreliance.com
Is SodaWax an antiperspirant?
SodaWax Natural Deodorant does NOT contain aluminum therefore it is not an antiperspirant. There is no such thing as an aluminum-free antiperspirant. SodaWax does however contain tapioca flour and powdered sugar which have hydroscopic qualities that help with wetness.
Why use a natural deodorant instead of the ones you see at the grocery store?
We use only natural ingredients. Those other deodorants that most humans use contain ingredients that have been linked to Alzheimer’s disease and various cancers. These ingredients include parabens, aluminum compounds, silica, triclosan, talc, propylene glycol and steareth to name a few. These chemicals are used to mask odors and block your sweat glands from producing sweat. That doesn’t seem natural to us.
Do I use SodaWax as I would any deodorant?
Yes, but allow the deodorant to absorb into the skin before dressing. You want it on your body, not your clothes. Five minutes should do the trick!
Why does my SodaWax deodorant seem a bit softer in the Summertime?
Don’t worry, that’s natural. Our main ingredient is coconut oil which has a low melting point. You’ll notice a slight change in firmness depending on the ambient temperature but it will always maintain its solid form. Our deodorant is formulated not to liquify like other brands do, even in Summer.
Will SodaWax stain my clothes?
SodaWax Natural Deodorant is aluminum-free, so you never have to worry about those awful yellow pit-stained shirts. SodaWax is however a coconut oil-based product. Coconut oil is necessary to neutralize odor-causing bacteria. Like any oil, it has the potential to leave marks on clothing. For best results, apply deodorant to underarms after bathing and wait five minutes before dressing. This will allow the deodorant to absorb into the skin, giving you the best protection as well as minimizing oil transfer to your garments. To remove oil marks from clothing, simply wash garment in a HOT wash cycle with your normal laundry soap. For persistent oil marks, add a non-chlorine oxygen bleach powder (OxyClean) to your wash cycle.
