We have created one of the simplest yet most efficient deodorants on the market using the least number of ingredients we could. We source organic oils and food grade powders to ensure the highest quality possible. All deodorants are made & packed in the UK by PITT BALM staff so we stay in control of quality every step of the way.
Coconut Oil is a highly saturated oil that is traditionally made by extracting the oil from raw coconuts or dried coconut kernels. Coconut oil contains Vitamin E, essential amino acids, and lauric and caprylic acid which are amazing at repairing your skin’s natural barrier function and helps maintain your skin’s natural flora aka the good bugs! It can also keep moisture in the skin by slowing down the evaporation – helping to reduce the chance of sweaty ‘pitts’!
Shea butter is a fat that’s been extracted from shea tree nuts which are mostly based in West Africa. With high concentrations of fatty acids and vitamins, shea butter is great for softening and moisturising skin. Shea butter also has anti-inflammatory and healing properties – so lets soften and heal your underarms!
Cocoa butter, one of nature’s ultimate moisturisers, is extracted from whole Cocoa beans that are harvested from the cacao (cocoa) tree found in South America. With a melting point similar to our own body temperature, the cocoa butter in your deodorant helps it to absorb easily into your armpits. Giving chocolate that luxurious smooth and creamy consistency, it is mirrored when cocoa butter is used on your skin. Leaving your ‘pitts’ feeling silky-soft and hydrated.
Bicarbonate of Soda
Baking soda has been discovered in mineral springs across the world, attracting a host of tourists who want to experience the invigorating benefits of this exceptional compound. The exfoliating, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties of baking soda for your skin can help get rid of dead cells that have accumulated over time in your armpits. Not only this, it helps by slightly shrinking the size of your pores, thereby preventing dirt and other particulate matter from clogging them and allowing you to naturally sweat freely! Baking soda also helps fight body odour due to its antibacterial properties – thus helping you smell your best!
Arrow Root Powder
Arrowroot is a starch obtained from the rootstock of a tropical plant called the Manihot Utilissima plant. It is a fantastic absorbent, especially when it comes to absorbing sweat – a great ingredient to use in your deodorants if you want to sweat naturally but not let it get out of control. Arrowroot is great for its healing abilities and leaves your skin feeling silky to touch.
People have been using essential oils for centuries in order to maintain health and treat various ailments and conditions. Essential oils are the volatile essences of plants that create unique, wafting fragrances. They can be extracted from any plant’s flowers, bark, stem, leaves, roots, and sometimes its fruits. Every essential oil fragrance has their own unique benefits which is always important to remember when trying to decide which PITT BALM scent is best for you!
