Product's Label Information

Ingredients from packaging:

Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter*, Manihot Esculenta (Tapioca) Root Starch, Sodium Bicarbonate, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil*, Kaolin Clay, Isoamyl Laurate, Euphorbia Cerifera Cera (Candelilla) Wax, Triethyl Citrate, Zinc Oxide, Polyglyceryl-3 Polyricinoleate, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Salvia Officinalis (Sage) Oil, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil, Cedrus Atlantica Wood (Cedarwood Atlas) Oil, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Cymbopogon Martini (Palmarosa) Oil, Rosa Damascena (Rose) Oil and Vanilla planifolia (Vanilla) Extract, Naturally occurring in essential oils Limonene, Linalool, Geraniol, Farnesol Eugenol, Citronellol.

Directions from packaging:

Using the spatula collect to a pea sized amount of deodorant and warm it in your fingertips. Rub it under your arm until it disappears (just like you would a moisturiser). That's it! P.S. If you re used to using an antiperspirant, please remember that this isn t one! This deodorant works by neutralising odour and keeps you dryer by absorbing moisture, but it DOESN T block your pores with aluminium to stop you from sweating. It can take a couple of weeks for your body to adjust to this type of deodorant but it s worth the wait!
