Whether you are a seasoned Pit Stop user, have used other brands of natural deodorant, or just starting out on natural deodorant for the first time, it’s worth taking a few moments to familiarise yourself with how and why Pit Stop works and what to expect when transitioning from more toxic (aluminium based) products.
There is an increasing number of natural deodorants on the market and we often hear people say that many don’t work for them. In truth, there are quite a variety of products out there and they are not all equal. However, we can say with confidence that Pit Stop has a huge following, is highly effective and really does work.
WHAT CAUSES BODY ODOUR?
The cause of bad odour under your arms is not your sweat but a build-up of bacteria (called Corynebacteria) breeding in your nice wet and sweaty armpits. The secret to a good natural deodorant is its ability to take away the environment that the bacteria need to grow. Pit Stop does this in several ways. Firstly, it increases the PH level of your underarms to create an environment that bacteria cannot breed in. However, it doesn’t stop there, Pit Stop also contains oils that have known antibacterial and deodorising properties and also tapioca whose absorbent properties assist to soak up a sweat making you feel more comfortable.
WHAT YOU NEED YO KNOW WHEN SWITCHING TO A NATURAL DEODORANT
Most people will be able to switch seamlessly from chemical products to natural deodorant but for some there can be a transition period during which they will be aware of changes in their underarm area.
You have probably been using chemical antiperspirants or deodorants for years right? Well, these will have been absorbed by your skin (hence the concerns about aluminium based deodorants and breast cancer) and so you may find a “detox” phase occurs. During this time you may see increased sweating, a temporary increase in body odour and occasionally irritation caused by the body’s reaction to a new product.
The good news is that, once you cease to use chemical products your body will automatically start to detox but for a small number of people this may be a bit of a process involving a 2 to 4 week transition period.
First 5-7 Days
If you have been using antiperspirants on a regular basis you may find that you see little change in the first 3-5 days as residue aluminium and other ingredients in your previous product may continue to inhibit sweating. After 3-5 days you should notice increased sweating underarms as your body functions start to return to normal.
During this period Bacteria levels should begin to subside and underarm moisture levels will also normalize.
You may still notice that your underarms are wetter than before although the water-absorbing ingredients in Pit Stop should assist with this.
Remember to wash your Pit Stop off at night before bed. This will give your skin a break from slightly higher PH level – reapply in the morning..
