The body goes through a detox phase when transitioning from an antiperspirant to a natural deodorant. Kaia Naturals has found that the average consumer takes 2-4 weeks to fully transition, therefore they broke down the detox journey to a step-by-step process that you may experience. After you transition, use as a daily deodorant + detox to keep you fresh and odor free longer.

NOTE: Depending on your body chemistry, you MAY OR MAY NOT experience a detox when transitioning from antiperspirant to any natural deodorant.
Please be aware there may be a 2 to 4 week transition period when switching from antiperspirant to natural deodorant. Trust us, it’s worth it.
Antiperspirants block sweat glands, thereby preventing you from sweating. With natural deodorant, your underarms are free to breathe.
The activated charcoal formula starts to pull toxins and neutralize odor.
If you’ve been using antiperspirant, you may notice a temporary change in underarm moisture levels, as there is no aluminum blocking your sweat glands.
Underarm moisture levels will normalize.
Continue using for daily deodorizing and detoxing.
The charcoal is grey, will it stain my clothing?
Although it is grey, it goes on clear. There will be no white marks or yellow stains (which are caused by aluminum) as it is aluminum-free.
Will I still sweat while using the takesumi detox?
The takesumi detox is a deodorant that will help keep odor away; however, it cannot stop sweating as aluminum does (as it clogs the pores to prevent the natural process of sweating). Noticing a temporary excess of perspiration and odor is normal since your body needs time to rebalance to start working normally again.
How long does the odor control last?
The takesumi detox charcoal deodorant fights odor causing bacteria for up to 12 hours.
I’m a super smelly person what can I do?
If you are needing extra odor protection while transitioning or for those intense workout days, use to give yourself an extra protective barrier from odor causing bacteria.
Is this deodorant only used as a detox?
It starts off as a detox but after you transition, use as a daily deodorant. Continue to use the takesumi detox charcoal deodorant after you have fully transitioned, to continue allowing toxins and bacteria to not build up under your underarms. For extra protection, use the takesumi detox underarm bar on your smelly parts.
Is this safe to use while pregnant or breastfeeding?
Yes! Kaia Naturals takes pride in having clean and natural ingredients in all of their products. Their takesumi detox charcoal deodorant is safe for all women breastfeeding and pregnant as it is free of all harmful chemicals that would otherwise, absorb into your underarms.
