Directions for Use
Get clean! If your under-arms are freshly washed and odor-free, applying NPN deodorant will keep you sweet-smelling. Right after showering and drying off is the best time to apply.
Stick: Twist up the product no more than 1/8". Apply using light to medium pressure while guiding the stick over your underarms. The heat from your skin will allow the surface of the product to melt and glide onto your skin. 1-2 layers is all you need.
Jar: Apply a pea-sized amount under each arm. Your body heat will allow the product to melt and glide onto your skin.
Wait at least 30 minutes before applying deodorant to freshly shaved underarms.
Store in a cool, dark, dry place.
Do not use on irritated skin.
What makes NPN deodorant special?
High quality ingredients. No synthetic chemicals or fillers. Every ingredient is of the highest quality possible, chosen for maximum effectiveness, even though materials costs are then higher. NPN deodorant contains no questionable additives or perfumes.
Gentle, yet effective. NPN deodorant provides excellent odor prevention while being gentle enough to use every day. It contains a minimal amount of baking soda - just enough to be effective and unlikely to cause irritation (a common issue with other natural deodorants).
No wax. Wax is commonly added to deodorant to create a firmer texture. Since it is not absorbed by skin, it gets left on the surface as a sticky layer that can be difficult to remove, clogging pores and causing irritation.
Vegan. No animal testing or ingredients.
How it works
NPN deodorant inhibits the growth of odor-causing bacteria. Coconut and essential oils possess natural antibacterial properties, while baking soda raises the pH, and no water is used, further preventing bacterial growth. Arrowroot powder helps to keep the skin drier, while mango butter softens the skin. Vitamin E acts as a natural preservative.
Stick vs. Jar: Which deodorant type is best for you?
Stick: Great for everyday use, NPN stick deodorant offers convenient, fast application - just swipe it on.
Jar: NPN jar deodorant providese longer-lasting protection. Some users have reported being odor-free 24 hours after a single application.
Switching from antiperspirants
Commercial antiperspirant use can leave behind a build-up of chemicals and dead skin. Before applying NPN deodorant for the first time, you may need to unclog your pores by exfoliating. It may take a week or so to sweat out chemical residues, and your body odor may be slightly stronger during this adjustment period.
Due to variations in body chemistry, you may find that one combination of essential oils works better than another.
One application lasts about 12 hours, depending on activity level and body chemistry. Shelf life is approximately 1 year. Store away from light, heat and moisture; they will shorten the life of this natural product.
Tip: Do not leave NPN deodorant in a hot car, on a beach, or anywhere hot and sunny. It will melt, since it does not contain chemical stabilizers. It may be salvageable if stirred and put it in the freezer to re-solidify, but the texture may be altered. On hot days, in an uncooled home, you may want to store your deodorant in the refrigerator.
Variations in essential oils
Because NPN deodorant is completely natural, there will be some variation in texture and scent.
