When you join a team training for a 100km endurance event, you quickly find you need a really reliable deodorant. But when you cannot find a natural product that works on your sensitive skin, you've got a problem.

The solution... make your own. Kiriwai had humble beginnings at the kitchen bench. I started researching and testing different ingredients and formulations. I collaborated with a medical herbalist, a chemist, a naturopath and an apothecary.

Using a blend of powerful mineral and plant based powders, detoxing clay, nourishing oils and deodorising essential oils, I FINALLY created a deodorant that worked and didn't hurt my skin.

Rest assured, Kiriwai deodorants do not contain Aluminium, Triclosan, Propylene Glycol, Parabens, Steareths, artificial fragrances or nano-particles.
