Kaia Naturals The Takesumi Detox Bamboo Charcoal Deodorant

Sometimes I get asked which green beauty products were the most difficult to switch to, and I know my answer instantly! A foundation and a deodorant, with the latter being the biggest struggle. When I first started using natural products years ago, there were fewer natural options to choose from than there are now. Some of these options did not work at all. However, this is not an issue anymore. Nowadays green beauty market is filled with effective natural deodorants. Not only they are free of aluminum and other potentially harmful ingredients, but also have been adjusted to our preferences.

One of the lovely brands that recently came to my attention is Kaia Naturals. A Canadian brand offering vegan and cruelty-free deodorant sticks made of 99% natural ingredients. Kaia Naturals The Takesumi Detox* deodorants come in beautiful roll-on tubes with black and white stripe designs. There are 3 scents available (and more are coming soon):

  • cold pressed rose
  • grapefruit & orange
  • lime mint

The deodorant contains bamboo charcoal powder, which fights odor-causing bacteria and helps the body to draw it out. I also think it’s important to highlight that these deodorants do not contain baking soda. I know that some people try to avoid this ingredient so it might be a good option for them.

Ingredients: Propanediol*, water (aqua), glycerin, sodium stearate, saccharomyces ferment, rose flower oil, aloe (aloe barbadensis) leaf juice, sodium benzoate*, caprythydroxamic acid (plant-based), caprylyl glycol, magnesium hydroxide, allantoin, charcoal powder. *EcoCert approved.

Kaia Naturals has #takesumidetox challenge that you can join and share your thoughts and insides about your switch to natural deodorant. There’s also a leaflet that comes with a deodorant explaining the detox stages and what you can expect from them. The same info is available on the Kaia Natural website as well. It’s especially useful for people who want to make the switch from convenient deodorants to more natural options and just don’t know what to expect. No one wants to be surprised with wet and smelly armpits, even if this is a temporary thing. But when you know why you’re doing this and what changes can follow, it’s easier to continue.

Overall, I like Kaya Naturals deodorant, and it works great. To compare its effectiveness with the ones made with baking soda, it’s much more gentle, but also less likely to irritate your armpits.

Kaia Naturals deodorants are available online at Kaia Naturals in 65 g tubes ($25).

Have you tried Kaia Naturals deodorants?

Sounds like a great deodorant! Finding a natural deodorant that actually works is definitely one of the most difficult things to do – I never realized how much I freaking sweat until I stopped using traditional anti-perspirants! Love that this brand is Canadian, I’ll definitely have to look into it!
