FAQ's

How do I use FunkShineAll deodorant?

Dip, Dab, Rub it on!

FSA deodorant is a paste. Once you have showered, simply apply a small amount to your finger and wipe over your dry armpits. You do not need a lot. The oils in your deodorant are chosen specifically to combat bacteria and fungus however you should always use clean fingers before applying. Some people feel inclined to do a little dance during and after application. We find it pretty effective in ensuring a great day ahead!

I have never used natural deodorant before. How is it different to regular deodorant?

FSA deodorant does not contain any toxins such as Aluminium compounds (Aluminum chloralhydrate, aluminum zirconium tetrachlorohydrex gly), SLS, Parabens (methyl, ethyl, propyl, benzyl and butyl), Silica, Triclosan, Propylene Glycol, or Steareth -n.
It does contain organic, natural and ethically sourced ingredients.
FSA deodorant is not an anti-perspirant. It will absorb your sweat but it will not stop you from sweating, so you are not hindering what the body is naturally meant to do.
FSA deodorant may have a detox effect, particularly if you are new to natural deodorant.
FSA deodorant containers are recyclable and reusable.
FSA deodorant is vegan.
FSA deodorant is hand made, in small batches, with love.
No nasty spray can to dispose of, no aerosols, no single use plastic.
FSA deodorant has a fresh aroma and is suitable for men and women.

How long will a jar last?

This depends on how much you use of course, but a rule of thumb is about 3 months for a jar. You do not need much for it to work.

Does it work on men and women?

Yes! It’s equally effective on men and women and the smell is great for both. It works on all armpits - shaved, waxed or hair. If you have recently shaved or waxed, you might wish to wait untll the skin is calm before applying - as with any product.

I see it has coconut oil in the ingredients. Will it melt in hot temperatures?

It will soften and harden depending on the temperature. The consistency has no bearing on the effectiveness of the deodorant however, so if you prefer it to be harder, you can keep in the fridge if you wish. We use it at room temperature, as it always works. If it heats and cools repeatedly you may experience some crystalisation of the paste. Melt between fingers before applying first, or, enjoy the sensation of an armpit scrub! Bonus!

Will it work all day and night with one application?

Yes. It will. It will work through vigorous exercise though you may need to reapply after swimming.

Will it stain my clothes.

No. It will not stain your clothes. Be sure to let it dry a few moments before dressing.

What if I have a reaction?

Some people when detoxing from regular deodorant, will develop a reaction. If this occurs, you should cease use immediately and apply colloidal silver, or water until it calms down.  It can take some time to detox and you can try again in a few days or weeks or try a pit detox program. Some people with super sensitive skin react to bi-carb. I am working on a sensitive skin formula currently.
