Extra Virgin Coconut Oil – INCI: cocos nucifera (coconut) oil
Best known for it ability to hydrate and soften skin and hair, coconut oil plays a key role in a deodorant. It contains lauric acid, which is a fatty acid that is widely known for its ability to kill odour causing bacteria. It is also an anti-inflammatory that will help soothe and heal broken skin after shaving armpits.
Activated Bamboo Charcoal – INCI: carbo activatus (activated charcoal)
Taken orally for many centuries, activated charcoal is pure magic for the body with its amazing detoxifying abilities. Activated charcoal can absorb 1,000 times its own weight in moisture and/or toxins. Highly detoxifying, it draws out bacteria from deep inside the sweat glands, making it a powerful odour fighter that keeps your pits dry and stink free.

Magnesium inhibits the growth of odor causing bacteria. Magnesium plays an important role for many functions of your body and helps keep your body healthy.

How deodorants and antiperspirants work.

Many people believe that a deodorant and an antiperspirant are the same. They aren’t. A deodorant has different ingredients to prevent or kill odour causing bacteria. It keeps us stink free and smelling fresh. A deodorant doesn’t prevent perspiration.

An antiperspirant blocks the sweat ducts and prevents perspiration and underarm wetness. It doesn’t prevent stink. Usually aluminum is added to commercial formulas to cause the cells in our armpits to swell and block the ducts from letting perspiration out.

Q. How does Fresh Pits work?
A. We use two key natural ingredients to kill odour causing bacteria and promote dry underarms. Activated charcoal and magnesium don’t stop sweat from happening, but they significantly help control dryness and odour. Perspiration doesn’t stink. It is the multiplying bacteria that cause bad smell. So, let’s kill the bacteria.
Q. What is activated charcoal? Why is it used in this formula?

A. Activated charcoal is not the kind of charcoal that comes from your bbq or grill. The difference between the two kinds of charcoal is that oxygen is added to create better absorption.

Activated charcoal has been used in households and hospitals to absorb toxins, for centuries. It is widely given to people and pets. Not only does it absorb toxins but it also absorbs odour causing bacteria which is the route to bad smelling armpits.

Magnesium hydroxide works by neutralizing odour causing bacteria when applied topically or taken orally. It also has many health benefits.

Q. Is this formula greasy?
A. Our formula is soft, smooth and buttery. It melts into the skin quickly and disappears, leaves the skin feeling soft and not greasy. Don’t be afraid to be generous with the application to take advantage of the healing and beautifying properties of the ingredients.
Q. Does Fresh Pits contain baking soda?

A. Many manufacturers use baking soda but we don’t because a lot of people have sensitive skin and find that any level of baking soda causes skin rashes or burns.

As with any deodorant or skin care product, if you have very sensitive skin you should do a patch test before applying to the whole underarm area. If any irritation develops, discontinue use immediately.

Q. Is Fresh Pits natural?
A. Yes it is 100% natural. It is also 100% vegan and is gluten, aluminum, paraben, phthalate and ethyl alcohol free. We support fair trade and use eco-friendly and sustainable ingredients.
Q. Is Fresh Pits organic?
A. It is not 100% organic. Several of our ingredients are organic which include, lavender, rosemary, cocoa butter, coconut oil, shea butter, carnauba wax, tapicca root powder and aloe vera.
Q. How often does Fresh Pits have to be applied?
A. Apply it generously only once per day. Fresh Pits kills stink causing bacteria rather than masking the smell, so apply it right after bathing or showering, before stink begins to happen.
Q. How is this product applied?
A. With your fingers! Our formula is soft and creamy and is ultra easy to apply. It melts into the skin. Using a cosmetic spatula, scoop out a small amount from the jar (don’t use wet fingers – water will introduce bacteria growth). The amount will vary depending on the size of your armpits and how much hair growth there is. You’ll quickly figure out how much you need. Using your fingertip, rub it into the armpit making sure to cover all of the area where hair grows. Don’t worry if it goes beyond where hair grows because we have included some great ingredients to help keep the surrounding skin protected, nourished and beautiful.
Q. How long will a 40 gram jar last?
A. Our formula is soft and spreads easily so a little goes a long way. Applying once per day, a jar should last about 4 to 6 months. A new jar should be opened within 12 months of purchase and should be used within 6 months of opening.
Q. Does Fresh Pits stain clothing?
A. Fresh Pits causes no staining on pits or fabric, and leaves no white residue on clothing. Feel confident knowing that our formula provides an invisible shield that takes care of odour, is absorbent and is perfectly pH balanced with no tell tale signs that you are wearing a deodorant. Feel confident wearing your clothing that exposes your underarms!
Q. Why does the contents of the jars seem to vary in colour and/or consistency from time to time?

A. Our formula doesn’t change from batch to batch but because we rely on suppliers for our ingredients, sometimes they differ a bit from shipment to shipment. You may find that the texture sometimes seems a wee but grainy. This is nothing to worry about. The cause is from sensitive shea butter possibly heating up too much in shipping from us to you and then cooling down too slowly. That process causes little grains to form. It doesn’t affect the effectiveness of the formula and the little grains will melt into your skin. These are things we can’t control. What we can guarantee is if there is a slight variation from the last purchase, it’s still the same amazing product!
