Description: Lemongrass gives this special blend a zesty citrus aroma. Organic extra-virgin coconut oil has anti-bacterial properties of its own, and arrowroot powder absorbs wetness naturally. (Arrowroot powder is the dried root of the arrowroot plant. Completely edible, it is commonly used as a thickener, in vegan baking, and in baby teething biscuits. This is a "limited-edition" deodorant that's only available a few times throughout the year. Baking soda is a natural odor-blocker and also raises the pH of the underarm so it's less hospitable to odor-causing bacteria.
Size: 2.5 oz tube
Shelf Life: 18 months from date of purchase
Care: Pit Putty Stick is a unique product that takes some special care in use due to the lack of chemical binders. We wanted something that was certified organic, but also imparted powder to the skin, didn't irritate, and didn't stain clothing. So, we used a special ratio of coconut oil and arrowroot powder so it goes on dry. The downside to this is that the only thing holding the powder together is coconut oil, which can be temperature-sensitive and requires a unique application method. It does have the potential to crumble or be soft and squishy. It is, after all, why we call it Pit *Putty!*
Application: Be sure to not extend the product further than 1/8th of an inch above the tube, and just apply one to two downward gentle swipes. Never go up and down or press hard like you usually have to with other deodorants. You might not feel like you're getting product on, but that's just fine. If you over-apply you'll get too much product and it will ball up and fall off...with Pit Putty, less is more. If a light layer ends up not being able to control odor for you, we need to get a different formula for your body chemistry.
SPECIAL NOTE: IN THE SUMMER MONTHS OR IN HOT CLIMATES, PLEASE CHOOSE 'SUMMER SHIPPING' OPTION SO THIS ITEM DOESN'T MELT DURING TRANSIT. If it does melt it is still useable but will be more prone to crumbling or may arrive misshapen. If this does happen, please visit our Pit Putty Help Page.
