Zesty + Refreshing
Armpits may not win the 'most glamorous body part' award, but they still deserve some attention. Show them some love by choosing a natural deodorant paste from Kiriwai.
Traditional antiperspirants use aluminium and other toxic ingredients to block your sweat ducts, stopping your body from sweating. That's pretty harsh considering sweat doesn't actually smell. Body odour is only formed when sweat reacts with bacteria on the skin.
Kiriwai Natural Deodorants work differently. The blend of mineral and plant based ingredients, such as magnesium & activated charcoal, stop this process from taking place. They also absorb moisture, but as with any natural deodorant, because you're still sweating, some wetness is to be expected.
What's more, you won't find baking soda, a common irritant found in most natural deodorants, on the ingredient list. Baking soda is very alkaline and the reason lots of people react to natural deodorant. This means they're suitable for sensitive skin and may be applied straight after shaving.
The essential oils of Lime, Grapefruit and Litsea cubeba are naturally deodorising.
The light scent is zesty & refreshing.

Scoop out a pea sized amount and apply to clean, dry armpits. Rub in gentle circles over the whole armpit area.
The paste goes on grey and rubs in clear. Wait a couple of moments before getting dressed to ensure no residue gets on to clothing.
May be applied straight after shaving.
If concerned about potential allergens or reactions, please spot test first and stop using if irritation occurs.
