How Does It Work?
Arrowroot powder helps wick away moisture. Coconut oil, cocoa butter, shea butter and vitamin E all condition the delicate underarm skin and provide a long-lasting base. Baking soda is a powerful deodorant. Probiotics actually help to consume the bacteria that create odor in the first place. And a blend of therapeutic grade essential oils delivers an unobtrusive, natural scent.
How to apply:
This is not your run-of-the-mill stick product: it’s a balm that’s applied with your fingertips. To use, simply dip two clean fingertips into the jar and take up between a quarter and half a teaspoon of product. (You’ll find that you need to use much less than you think… you’ll hone this as you get used to this new format.) Share this balm with the fingertips of the other hand, then spread gently on your underarms until the balm has melted against the skin.
You might notice that your balm will change texture with the seasons, which is to be expected with coconut oil as a prominent ingredient… it will grow more solid in cold (though easily spreadable) and softer in heat. Especially in the cool season, it’s helpful if the fingertips are warm, which will help the balm soften and melt most easily.

“Why Shouldn’t I Use Commercial Deodorant Products?”
Commercial deodorants and antiperspirants are chock full of nasty chemicals and ingredients that have a proven track record of doing horrible things to your one and only body. (Not to mention that so often: they simply don’t work!)
What’s more, these chemicals and additives are leeching not only into your skin, but into the lymph nodes in your underarms. This spells bad news for breast health (women AND men!). Aluminum, parabens, propylene glycol, petroleum products, triclosan, sodium lauryl sulfate, chemical fragrances… the web is awash with information on the dangers of these common deodorant/antiperspirant ingredients. Why put something on your body that you wouldn’t want to get INTO your body?
What’s MORE, our body’s sweat mechanism is purposeful. It’s there for a reason. Antiperspirants are some of the worst offenders of the chemical cocktail game, and additionally plug up our body’s natural method of ridding itself of toxins!
FORTUNATELY, most folks aren’t addicted to these deodorant/antiperspirant chemicals in particular… they simply don’t want to smell like something the cat dragged in. The good news is that Ten Air Studios Deodorant Balm can powerfully, effectively, safely and naturally keep even the most pungent among us from announcing ourselves odor-first.
This is not an antiperspirant, but an incredibly effective deodorant that does exactly that: de-odorizes your underarms while allowing the body the ability to do its job, morning to night, in one application.
