Frequently asked questions
What are the ingredients in lifestinks® deodorant?
OUR BASE INGREDIENT is aluminum free sodium bicarbonate. This is not the baking soda that can be purchased at the grocery store as that product contains aluminum. Into our aluminum free sodium bicarbonate we crush pure Australian botanical oils: tea tree oil to address odor causing bacteria and either lavender or cedarwood, depending upon the product you chose, to further purify the underarm area.
When can I shave?
We recommend that women start with our lavender lifestinks as so many women shave their underarm, and lavender has soothing properties for the skin. Remember, no deodorant should be applied immediately after shaving, including ours. Until you determine your personal comfort level, try to separate the two activities (shaving and applying deodorant). Some ladies are able to apply to a dry armpit shortly after shaving, others shave the night before and apply deodorant to a clean armpit in the morning. Proceed with caution to keep your pits comfortable.
Can lifestinks deodorant be used on feet?
Both of our botanical infusions work very effectively as foot powders, and are highly prized by customers who have never found anything more effective in addressing foot odor, athlete’s foot and other fungal conditions. Simply sprinkle it on your feet before putting on shoes, socks or sandals. We have had lots of Mom’s report that they sprinkle it in all their kids’ shoes.
Why do we use Australian botanical oils?
We pay a premium for the use of Australian oils because they are considered among the finest in the world. Australian botanicals are regulated by their version of the FDA and have to meet high standards of purity.
Here is some additional information on our product’s purity.
We buy our oils from a company that has an on-site laboratory where all essential oils undergo rigorous testing and analysis. This is done using the latest in Quality Assurance with Gas Chromatography and Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS) equipment to accurately analyze each and every batch of essential oils they produce.
