How-To: Deodorant

Naked Kitty Deodorant Info + Tips

Discontinue use if rash or irritation occur!

Apply directly to dry underarms.

There’s no need to wet the stick or your armpits! Wait a few minutes to apply after shaving or waxing underarms in order to minimize the potential for irritation. For pot deodorants, scoop out a dime sized amount to start with for each underarm, and apply with clean fingers directly to underarms.

The deodorant does melt at warm temperatures (summer, warm climates, in your car, etc.)

It’s best kept in a cool dry place (your bathroom is fine and it likely won’t melt there). If you’re travelling somewhere warm, pack the deodorant upright in a ziplock bag or container to prevent it from melting on the rest of your luggage. When you arrive at your destination, store your deodorant in the fridge to avoid further melting. It will also melt in the car or in your purse during the summer.

My deodorant is crumbling or has melted out of shape and set funny in the tube, how do I fix this?

Pop your deodorant in the microwave for 10-second intervals (no more than one 10 second interval if it’s the Travel-Sized version). If you don't have a microwave, run your tap hot, fill up a bowl and hold your deodorant (only plastic tubes) upright in the bowl. Things should work smoothly again after you’ve let it set. It’s best if you let it sit somewhere cool overnight (the fridge is great). When it has melted, it should set back in the tube on its own if kept upright.

What’s the transition time like?

Give yourself a couple of weeks to a month to transition to natural deodorant if you’ve been using conventional drug store antiperspirants. If this is your first time using the Naked Kitty brand deodorant, you may find you’ll need to reapply a second time during the day, but often this isn’t the case!
