Is the oil in your Super Deodorant separating? Is it gritty and unsettling to the eyes? Are you wondering if the formula has changed? Continue reading. You will have decided whether to stay or look for a new product by the end. In any case, we want you to be fully informed about Super Deodorant.
The higher purpose
Super Deodorant is a specialty product that serves a specific purpose. It is a coconut and fragrance-free natural deodorant that is also free of aluminum, baking soda, essential oils and any form of fragrance.
Its purpose is to serve as a reliable solution for those who have had poor luck with other deodorants and antiperspirants. This includes people with allergies and extreme skin sensitivities, importantly fragrance and coconut allergies.
The coconut conundrum
The formula and chemistry of Super Deodorant have not changed.
We formulate Super Deodorant without ingredients that give mainstream products their luxurious look and feel. Mainstream products employ emulsifiers, co-emulsifiers, gums or carbomers to stabilize the formulation, disperse the ingredients evenly and prevent them from separating when subjected to temperature variations.
We don't use stabilizers like emulsifiers because the most effective ones are either derived from coconut or animals. We won't use both as they are not suitable for our brand's value and purpose. The value being vegan and cruelty-free.
The downside is that the deodorant may not look the same all the time. The oil may separate and float on top, or the non-nano powders could clump up and feel gritty and the consistency may range from a soft serve to a thick putty, especially when exposed to temperature variations in transit. When this happens, the product may look yellowish-green or greenish-grey based on the environmental conditions. Grape seed oil is yellowish green in colour and please don’t mistake it for the paint on the canister. No temperature change in transit can dissolve or chip the paint. None of this means that your deodorant has gone bad or rancid. Super Deodorant contains a healthy dose of tocopherol to prevent rancidity. We also ensure that on any given day, the shelf life of each ingredient used in the formulation of a batch of Super Deodorant is greater than or equal to 12 months.
Looks vs Performance
Irrespective of the looks and the texture, Super Deodorant will get the job done without rashes, bumps and stained clothing. If the deodorant is transferring to your clothes, chances are that you are applying the product in excess or not rubbing it well and allowing it to dry. If you are experiencing deodorant fatigue, read this first.
Only when the actives in Super Deodorant reach equilibrium will it stop working. This will only happen when it mixes with proteins. The canister contains no protein. So, please, don't confuse appearance and performance. It's a scientific impossibility.
Let's set aside the coconut allergy group for a moment. Let's make a silky smooth Super Deodorant with emulsifiers and other additives. But first, let us warn you that there is a catch.
One of Super Deodorant's main advantages is its long-lasting power. It is an anhydrous product that will not be washed away by sweat or swimming. To get it off the skin, give it a good scrub in the shower. Emulsifiers have a water-loving hydrophilic end and a water-hating hydrophobic end. While the water-hating end will stabilize the formulation by holding all eight ingredients together, the water-loving end will allow the product to be easily washed away. Let's experiment. Apply lotion to your forearm and hold the forearm under running tap water for 3 to 4 minutes and see what happens.
The non-nano love & the gritty texture hate
For Super Deodorant to be effective, the active and base ingredients must sit on top of live skin and not penetrate it. To accomplish this, we keep the formulation free of nanoparticles. We procure minerals such as zinc oxide and salts such as magnesium hydroxide as coarse powders even though finer forms are available. These characteristics make Super Deodorant stay longer on your skin and keep odour at bay.
From our end, we have found the following ways to remediate the texture inconsistency,
- We can replace tinplate canisters with airtight jars made from recycled/reclaimed plastic waste. We can offer Super Deodorant in a larger size as these jars will prevent oxidation. The main disadvantage of this change is that we will no longer be able to offer free shipping; however, you will be able to use a faster shipping method and receive your product with consistent texture.
- Next year, we may release a luxuriously silky variant of Super Deodorant with some additional superpowers. Keep an eye out for our pre-order newsletters.
If you are not convinced by this explanation, think about natural peanut butter. Why does every jar have oil separating and floating on top? We sincerely appreciate your support thus far and we hope to continue serving you for a long time to come.
I had noticed some inconsistencies between batches but it always does the trick regardless of the appearance. I’ve tried other natural deodorants and they simply do not compare with how well Superdeodorant keeps the stank away. I’ll never go back!
Thanks for the explanation! I was just about to write and ask :) completely understand and I continue to believe in Super Deodorant. I started using it exclusively in April 2020 and have not looked back – happy anniversary Super D! xo
I’ve tried sooo many natural deodrants on the market and none of them have worked for me until I tried Super Deodrant! I’ve been using it for a year now and I would never go back to what I was using before. I love that it doesn’t have a scent, I’m spending a fraction of the amount that I used to spend on deodrant, and you’re Canadian!!! I usually buy six containers at once becuase they stay fresh longer enough in the fridge in a ziploc bag, and I’ve had no issues with the consistency of the product. Yeah, it took some getting used to putting the product on with my finger tips, but the results are totally worth it! I don’t really want a larger container, becuase I keep one in my bedroom and one in the bathroom and that lasts a couple of months at least, so anything bigger would probably go bad faster. Keep up the great work! And if you can ever make this formula into a stick, I’d try it out…
Thank you for the info. I was on the fence, but will continue to buy as it has been the very best natural deod ever.
Thank you for the great info! In my opinion, i would like to see this formula continue. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. I can put up with the minor issues for the HUGE benefits of the deodorant. Best one i have ever used!!! I have tried at laest 10!
Don’t change a thing! This is the best deodorant I have ever used. Thanks Super Deodorant <3
I noticed a difference in this last order but thought it was because of temperature changes while making its way down to me. Though I’m only in New Hampshire the package had to route through southern New York first. Consistency change or not, I’m sticking with Super Deodorant. I haven’t found anything better.
Please don’t change a thing. BEST deodorant EVER!!
I have shared my good find, Super Deodorant, with family and friends and they are all amazed by how well this product does the job in preventing odour on any offensive body areas.
I keep six months of Super Deodorant in my refrigerator and have had zero problems with the product separating. The formulation is superb and effective. So I say, if it works, don’t mess with it.
Love your deodorant! The inconsistent texture does not outweigh the fact that it’s the only deodorant I’ve found that actually works. I also love how perfect the tin size is for travel. Please don’t change a thing! <3
I have noticed all the stuff you are writing about, but it does not matter. It still works really well so PLEASE don’t make any changes. Thanks
First deodorant that has done the job & I’ve not had irritated skin. The formula is great just the way it is.
Please don’t use plastic. I love that it’s plastic free. I am happy with it just the way it is.
I have no problem with the look or texture. What I don’t like is the yellow container. I’m not sure if anyone else has noticed this, but the yellow tint gets into the deodorant. I’d like to have the grey tins back.
I love Super Deodorant just the way it is, and I hope you don’t change a thing. Please don’t use plastic containers. There’s enough plastic in the world already.
Don’t change a single thing.
This deodorant is amazing and I’ve never had a better one.
I have 2 tins going at any given time: one tin stays in the fridge and the other goes in the bathroom cabinet and I rotate them every few days, just to keep the consistency, well, consistent.
Love it 😍 yes the consistency was a little different this time,but I’m not changing my super Deodorant for anything else.
I haven’t found anything else in the market as good as my Super❤️ Deodorant
I absolutely love it 😍 I give you 10 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Thank you for saving us from bad smell 😄
Love the deodorant. Leave it in the freezer until time to use it. I do not get free shipping and I hate that part. Please let all of your customers get free shipping. If you order quite a bit each time, shipping should be included.
I was pleasantly surprised by this different consistency, and still love this product!
Thanks for sharing this information. I love the product as is, regardless if the oils separate or it’s a bit gritty! I think of it as the chance to give love to my arm pits…to massage the product in and massage an area that never gets attention. Bottom line – it works and that’s most important to me!
Please don’t change anything! The packaging, size and formulation are all great. It’s the only natural product that actually works. I even feel safe allowing my eleven year to use it.
My only question is if the smell has changed is it still okay to use?
Thanks for addressing this I was just going to send an email to ask why my newest batch is like this when the last time I ordered it was thicker and not separated/not gritty.
I assumed it had possibly endured temperature changes during shipping.
Please DON’T set aside the coconut allergy group! While I don’t love this oily batch I just got, it still does it’s job. Because of the zinc oxide, it even helped heal & soothe my stupidity of using a razor with a lubricant strip … containing coconut. There are so so few things we can use. (I disagree about one point- I really don’t think the oily one worked as well as my many other containers over the last two years! But it was one container of many that have worked well, to be fair!)
I chalked this up to it freezing in the mailbox, so I appreciate the explanation!!
I love the containers as is, and haven’t found a difference in performance with the runnier, grittier consistency so I will continue to buy.
Love it just the way it is! The small tin works well, easy to travel with. I just stir in the oil and apply. I actually think of this as armpit moisturizer, not deodorant! I haven’t had a smell for so long, thanks to this product, that I don’t remember what smelly armpits are! And I haven’t had itchy armpits for years…thanks so much.
