Yes, we are a Canadian company. Super Deodorant is manufactured and shipped from eastern New Brunswick.
How does it work?
Super Deodorant contains four active ingredients and four base ingredients. One of the active ingredients have anti-microbial properties and its main job is to put body odour causing bacteria to sleep. Now the sleeping bacteria become a sponge and put the newer bacteria that come in contact with it to sleep. This process goes on all day.
The base ingredients anchor the active ingredients to the skin and prevent them from getting washed away in sweat. All this happens without altering the true acidic nature of your skin. It's that simple!
We worked hard for three years to get these two things right. These two factors work hand in hand to make Super Deodorant an extremely effective natural deodorant that works for you all day.
Look & Feel
Super Deodorant is a soft paste with a mild exfoliating texture naturally offered by shea butter during summer. In the colder months, it will be very smooth and creamy.
When the product leaves our facility, it goes out soft and creamy. We manually inspect every tin before dispatch. The variation in texture is influenced by the weather conditions the package is exposed to in transit. In summer, when travelling in hot distribution and delivery trucks, shea butter will melt and solidify continuously. This makes the fatty acids in shea butter crystalize into fine granules.
This can be prevented by adding synthetic stabilizers or a couple of natural derivatives. If we add synthetics, the product will lose its natural benefits and will stop being a natural product. The natural stabilizers either contain animal derivatives or coconut and palm derivatives. This will make the product unsuitable for vegans and those with coconut allergies. The best way to get your product without an exfoliating texture during summer is to opt for one day, overnight shipping or express shipping. The free shipping we offer through Canada Post is through their Letter Mail service. Meaning, it easily spends 5-13 business days in hot trucks and distribution centers that may or may not have climate control. This is a natural product, made with 8 simple ingredients and it is behaving exactly the way it should.
FOR FIRST TIME USERS
1) Exfoliate your armpits once in the shower before using Super Deodorant for the very first time.
2) Apply a pea sized portion to each armpit with slow sweeping motions until it feels smooth. Make sure the entire armpit is covered.
3) Give it a minute before wearing a clean shirt.
NOTE - If your shirt is already stained with body odour, the deodorant is not going to mask that odour. Please wear a clean shirt. This way you will know Super Deodorant is working for you the way it should.
Shelf Life & Storage
If you have purchased more than one Super Deodorant, the ideal temperature to store it is 18.5°C ~ 20.5°C (65.3°F - 68°F), humidity - 30% ~ 50%.
If you aren't sure, don't take a chance. If you are not going to use the tins immediately, throw them into a zip lock bag and store them in your fridge or freezer. Take them out one or two days before you need them and leave them on the counter to thaw. This way, the texture of Super Deodorant will always remain intact.
Never expose this natural deodorant to direct, heat, light, high/low humidity. Else the oils in it will oxidize and go rancid. We don't use stabilizers or antioxidants to prevent this from happening in order to keep the deodorant pure and natural.
An unopened tin of Super Deodorant when stored as suggested would remain intact for 12 months from the date of dispatch.
Exposure to heat, light, high/low humidity and moisture will oxidize the oils in the deodorant and it will go rancid quickly. We don't use stabilizers or antioxidants to prevent this from happening in order to keep the deodorant pure and natural.
If you store it properly, away from light, heat and moisture, an open tin of Super Deodorant will be good for 3 months. Never touch the deodorant with wet fingers. Always restore the lid immediately after use.
No, Super Deodorant is not an antiperspirant. You will sweat normally but there won't be any body odour.
No, Super Deodorant does not cause armpit rashes or bumps. It is Dermatologist tested and certified as non-irritant and hypoallergenic.
Yes, you can use Super Deodorant on your freshly shaved armpits. It is a non-irritant and won't cause any irritation. Always patch test before putting it to full use. Each one of us is unique.
No, Super Deodorant won't stain your clothes. If you have too much armpit hair or apply too much deodorant, you might find mild white streaks on your clothes. If you accidentally apply too much deodorant, thoroughly massage it into your skin in a circular motion and give it a minute or two to dry before wearing your shirt.
Not at all :). Use the base of your index finger to take out a pea sized portion and you will be fine. Super Deodorant is a soft paste. It will spread easily and dry down quickly without leaving a residue.
If you use one pea sized amount per armpit everyday, one tin of Super Deodorant will last you approximately 45-50 days.
No! we do not use aluminum in our natural deodorant. We use 8 powerful natural ingredients to make Super Deodorant. Nothing more and nothing less :)
No. Baking soda is neither an antibacterial nor skin safe.
No. Super Deodorant does not contain essential oils or fragrance in any form.
Coconut oil is comedogenic and clogs pores. When used in a natural deodorant it may cause armpit bumps. It also stains clothes badly.
Super Deodorant is 100% coconut free.
Micro-Silver vs Aluminum
The vast majority of skin problems and body odour are due to bacteria. We use pure medical-grade silver particles that are highly porous and micro-sized (NOT NANO). These particles physically cling very well to skin and hair follicles in the armpits and continuously generate silver ions resulting in long-lasting protection from body odour. It helps to maintain a healthy skin flora without entering your skin and boosts the skin’s natural defence. We don't use sterling silver (used in jewellery making) or colloidal silver in our natural deodorant as they are not suitable for skincare.
Aluminum is neither an antibacterial nor a deodorizer. In commercial antiperspirants and deodorants, it is used as a plug. It plugs into your pores and prevents sweating. Sweating is a very important bodily function and obstructing it is unhealthy. We don't use it in Super Deodorant because we don't see it adding any scientific value to the deodorant. Aluminum toxicity is a controversial topic. The risks and dangers associated with it have not been proven scientifically. So we don't want to monger fear and demonize it. Doing so would be very irresponsible. Avoiding or embracing this gray area is a personal choice. We will never use it.
Is it safe for me?
Who should avoid Super Deodorant?
Super Deodorant is not for those with known allergies or sensitivity to Zinc or Magnesium or Shea butter.
Always do a patch test before putting the product to full use.
Apply a pinch of the deodorant on your forearm and observe for 8 hours. If you see any reaction during the patch test, discontinue use immediately.
Why no scent or fragrance options?
Micro-silver used in Super Deodorant is very different from the silver alloy used in jewellery making. Silver jewellery contains nickel which is a common allergen.
Please use this information as a guideline and consult your physician to get clarity. Also, do a patch test before putting our natural deodorant to full use.
The inventor formulated Super Deodorant 10 years ago for a family member going through chemotherapy in a tropical place. She was allergic to many things including scents and fragrances. It worked so well for her that she casually called it a super deodorant. The adjective stuck around and when we decided to turn it into a business, the name Super Deodorant became the obvious choice. We retained the spirit and chemistry of the original formulation the way it was 10 years ago.
By keeping our deodorant scent/fragrance-free, we are making it easily accessible to a wide range of people. Super Deodorant does one thing so well. It takes care of your body odour problem without any side effects.
Armpit Detox & Transition Period
No, you don't need anything other than Super Deodorant. Armpit detox is a pseudo science and it is just another way to waste your money. Just apply Super Deodorant to your clean armpits once a day and that's all you need.
No, Super Deodorant will work right from day one for 99.9% of people. Just make sure your armpits are clean when you apply the deodorant.
The chances are Zero.
We are not being over-confident when we make this claim. We have put our natural deodorant through extensive research and tests by qualified Dermatologists and scientists. This helped us to completely understand how it works.
The chances of Super Deodorant not working on day one are one in thousand. Very rarely Super Deodorant may not work on some people on day one. If this happens to be you, you must know that the strain of bacteria in your armpit is offering resistance to the anti-bacterial our deodorant uses to fight body odour. Micro-silver will neutralize this resistance and the deodorant will start working in 2 - 14 days or longer for some individuals. So you must continue to use the deodorant even if it does not work on day one or in the first few days. You will be pleasantly surprised.
This is not a transition period. It is pure science. Even after using the whole tin, if you don't see satisfactory results, there maybe be an underlying medical condition that needs attention. Please consult a qualified physician. Thanks for being patient.
