How to use:
Apply just a small (pea sized or less) amount on your pits with your fingertips and gently massage in. It will absorb and dry quickly without leaving residue. You really do only need a little. Wait a few minutes for it to absorb before putting on fitted clothing. (Yes, it may seem a bit odd to rub deodorant under your pits at first, but stick with it, its better for you and the environment!) This deodorant is not an antiperspirant, so does not stop you sweating, which is a really good thing (you are meant to sweat!) but it will stop you smelling.
60g jar lasts approx. 2 months
Storage: Keep below 30c.
If allowed to heat, say during an Australian summer or in a hot car, the paste will melt somewhat. Simply stir before applying, or if you like the paste firmer, pop it in the fridge for a few hours. It usually keeps consistency through summer if stored in a cool bathroom cupboard.
Always patch test before use on a small area of skin, in the unlikely event a skin irritation occurs discontinue use immediately.
