You asked, and we listened: the Scentless Stick is coming your way. It’s the same charcoal-based formula you know and love, we just removed our signature fragrance for those of you who prefer a more neutral experience. Like all of our products, our Scentless Deodorant Stick is designed specifically for sensitive skin—and those whose skin has been irritated by natural deodorants in the past.
So what’s in our scentless stick deodorant? Let’s take a look.
Charcoal is a porous substance that's super absorbent for moisture and even the stinkiest odors (which is pretty helpful for deodorant!). It’s estimated that 1 gram of activated charcoal has a surface area of 1,000 square meters.
Loaded with fatty acids, antioxidants, and vitamin E, coconut oil is moisturizing, easy to absorb and great for restoring the skin’s natural pH.
A natural antimicrobial with skin healing properties. The benefits include a soothing effect, anti-irritant properties and the promotion of collagen synthesis. Studies have shown that probiotics may even reduce symptoms of skin conditions such as eczema.
Wait, there are probiotics in my deodorant?
There sure are! At PiperWai we are all about ensuring our customers have access to both natural as well as health-supportive products. And while you may know yogurt is good for your gut and overall health, you may be wondering what about probiotics are beneficial for your skin? Our stick includes a probiotic strain called “Lactobacillus Ferment Lysate Filtrate,” which sounds complex but has a host of potential benefits. It is intended to increase cellular respiration, cellular metabolism and collagen production, as well as increasing the healthy bacteria on your skin’s surface, balancing your skin’s pH levels, and calming irritation.
Will this stick work as well as the original?
Absolutely! All the ingredients that make PiperWai a high-quality and effective natural deodorant are still in this stick. We’ve just removed the scented ingredients. The only difference you’ll notice is the smell (or lack thereof!).
Will this work if I am new to natural deodorant?
Yes! There is often an adjustment period when you switch from standard deodorant to natural deodorant. To help you adjust more easily, we created the Underarm Detox Kit which includes our charcoal detox mask, our underarm oil, and the deodorant of your choice as well as a carry-all organic cotton pouch. This will have you feeling and smelling great in no time.
