Thank you for taking the time to review our Minimalist Deodorant- although I'm sorry to hear you didn't love this one!
As our deodorants are not an anti-perspirant, it will not block your sweat glands and is instead designed to allow your body to naturally sweat. Oddly enough, sweat doesn't smell, it's actually the bacterial excretions on your skin that cause the smell. Bacteria munches on the chemical components on your sweat - more sweat = more bacteria = more bacteria excretions. It's not a pleasant thought but it does explain why we can smell when trialing a deodorant or even switching between deodorants. For this reason, we do recommend reapplying the product as needed during the day to keep you nice and fresh.
As our bodies are all so different, it's unfortunately true that formulating a deodorant that works for everyone is hard. We know that in some instances, our deodorants simply won't work for people. And that's okay.
Aside from suggesting that you apply numerous times throughout the day, as part of our guarantee, we would be happy to replace this with another one of our deodorants to see if the differences in essential oils can work (or another bar altogether), or alternatively I can arrange a refund for you. If you would be interested in either of these options, simply email us at email@example.com 😊
