Scence Natural Vegan Deodorant Balm Stick - Fresh Cedar
Soothing vegan bicarb-free deodorant balm
The future of skincare - this soothing and softening deodorant balm is vegan, organic, bicarb-free and suitable for everyday use.
Scence use organic coconut oil, mango butter and essential oils in their deodorant balms (this one is Fresh Cedar), along with magnesium to deodorise and organic arrowroot to absorb moisture. Their plastic-free deodorants contain no bicarbonate of soda, to minimise skin irritation.
As with all Scence products, their vegan deodorants are cruelty-free, gluten-free and are handmade in the UK, poured into 100% recyclable, compostable tubes.
Size: 75g tube - should last you 2 to 3 months providing great value for money.
Ingredients: Organic coconut oil, organic arrowroot, magnesium hydroxide, mango butter, sunflower wax, cedarwood essential oil, frankincense essential oil. Naturally occurring in essential oils.
Application: Use daily after showering. To release the balm push the base gently into the tube lid. Hold the balm against your underarm for 2-3 seconds to warm, then glide to apply. Keeps you feeling fresh and confident all day long.
Care: Please look after your product by storing it in a cool, dry place. Natural balms will soften in warm temperatures above 30 degrees but will become firm again if cooled.
Your paper container tube or jar may darken with the natural oils of your balm as you use it, developing a deeper patina. This is normal and doesn’t affect the quality of your balm. You can recycle or compost after use.
Use within 24 months of purchase. Do not use on broken skin or immediately after shaving/waxing. Discontinue use if adverse reaction occurs.

How does Natural Deodorant work?
Remember, it is not an antiperspirant so it will not stop you sweating (we are meant to sweat, it releases toxins) but it will work to eliminate body odour. It is not sweat that smells but rather the bacteria that forms during the process. The smell comes at the point where the sweat has dried and the bacteria on your armpits combine to give off the strong scent of Body Odour. Bacteria can also build on your clothes and thus the smell will exist there too.
How do you apply Natural Deodorant?
Simply and gently use the cardboard stick to rub the cream paste on to your undearms. You will not need much and it will absorb into your skin easily. If you find you have applied too much you still have the option of rubbing in gently using finger tips. You can reapply throughout the day should you feel it necessary, until you get to know how much you personally require.
If you are switching from a conventional deodorant or antiperspirant to a natural deodorant for the first time you may find that you need time to adjust. This is not always the case and most people make the switch without any problem.
Depending on the deodorant or antiperspirant products you have been previously using, your body may need time to expel the chemicals and additives used in your old deodorant which your body has become accustomed to.
Everyone is different so finding your preferred scent is something unique to you as is how much you need to apply and how frequently. This can also change with the seasons and even the day depending on what is going on.
For women, 'hormonal' perspiration is often more potent than physical perspiration and more is needed during that 'time of the month'. There are also differences with stress or emotional sweat compared to physical sweat, i.e. if you were at a workout in the gym.
