Vegan vs Cruelty Free: Learning the Differences

At PiperWai, we're proud to have hyper-informed, conscious consumers. They hold us to a high standard and make sure our health and wellness mission includes every body, including animals. Part of the PiperWai philosophy is to always be a vegan and cruelty free deodorant, with certifications from Leaping Bunny and Vegan Action.

Your body is an incredible machine. It’s resilient, complicated and always working to keep you going. It also can be sensitive and easily thrown off by outside factors. A big contribution to strong underarm odor is the way your body handles pH imbalance. Natural deodorants like PiperWai need to work with your body in order to be effective. If the pH imbalance under your arms has changed, it can also change the way PiperWai interacts with your body and how your body manages sweat and odors. So why is your pH balance off? Hormonal changesFluctuating hormonal levels attribute to pH...

Customer Spotlight: Melissa Pepin

We got to know Melissa when we noticed she kept tagging us on social media. On closer look, we saw that she was on a mission to recruit as many PiperWai customers as possible. She wasn't prompted to do so, nor did she receive any kind of incentive from us. She just did it.  We were so delighted and thankful that she took so much time to promote us that we reached out to tell her how much she means to us. That was the beginning of a beautiful relationship filled with Beyonce gifs, exclamation points and mutual adoration.  We want...

Activated Charcoal: What Is It and What Does It Do?

If you are the tiniest bit familiar with PiperWai, then you’ve likely heard the term “activated charcoal” more than once. There’s a reason for that. Activated charcoal is our magic ingredient, the thing that makes PiperWai stand out from every other natural deodorant. The term may throw people off, though. Many hear “charcoal” and think of the stuff that goes on grills or in the fireplace. The difference between your everyday household charcoal and activated charcoal is that oxygen is added in, making activated charcoal more porous and better at absorption. Its primary purpose is to absorbs the body’s toxins....

Natural vs. Antiperspirant: Why Make the Switch?

There are some big differences between a product labeled “deodorant” and one that’s labeled “antiperspirant.” In fact, many people think deodorants and antiperspirants are interchangeable. They’re located in the same aisle, so shouldn’t they work the same? The truth is, they both work but in separate ways. Our goal as a natural deodorant company is to inform people about our product and philosophy as much as possible. Part of that is educating people that deodorants and antiperspirants are completely different things. Antiperspirants rely on aluminum to work The active ingredient in antiperspirants is aluminum, which plugs sweat glands shut to...
