How do I put it on?

Keep your bar in a cool place (avoiding direct sunlight) and simply smooth the bar under your arms to cover your arm pits a few moments before you dress. There is no need to wet the bar, just re-apply as you require.

Why is your bar Aluminium free?

Antiperspirants that contain aluminium salts that help plug your pores so you don’t sweat as much, however these clogged pores can contribute to your natural body’s toxin outlet (your arm pit) stopping the process. Aluminium can be under the name of aluminium chloralhydrate or aluminium zirconium tetrachlorohydrex gly.

Pit-Tastic! has been formulated to reduce sweating under arm and eliminate odour with natural ingredients, no need for aluminium.

Is there a Vegan version of the bar?

Why does the bar have shea butter in it?

Cocoa Butter is rich in Vitamin E and minerals such as manganese, calcium, iron and zinc. It improves the “glide” of your solid deodorant while nourishing skin. It is also antimicrobial and antibacterial which helps to eliminate odour under your arm.

Why does the bar have coconut oil in it?

The bar needs to glide under your arms and coconut oil helps with this. Coconut oil also helps to kill fungi, yeast and bacteria all of which contribute to an underarm odour. It also moisturises your underarm skin.

I’m using the bar for the first few times but find that it is not working for me?

If we’ve been applying a deodorant containing parabens, aluminium, propylene glycol, and/or triclosan, our body may begin working to eliminate it once we switch, like a detox process. Our primary detox pathways are through the liver, kidneys, colon and lymph system, our skin and lungs also assist with detoxification.  There are a few ways to help your body and pits detox to help with the transition. Take a look at this link…

Your armpits will most likely need a period of adjustment, usually one to two weeks. Its worth the process to go through this to ensure your underarms are not blocking your sweat glands and adding to potentially harmful parabens every day to your body.

Feel free to use Pit-Tastic! as you require, maybe shower more frequently if being active. We assure you that this does settle down and your Pits will thank you!

Why should I apply my deodorant a short while before getting dressed?

You do not have to wait at all. Pit-Tastic! Is rich in skin soothing vitamin E, raw shea butter is a non-oily moisturizer that absorbs quickly when applied – super important if you are getting dressed in a hurry!

Why does the bar have beeswax in it?

Provides a barrier of protection while still allowing skin to breathe. Also, it’s what keeps the deodorant bar solid. Our Vegan bar is made with Sunflower wax should you wish to have an alternative.

Is there a vegan version of the bar?

Yes! All four fragrances are available in a non-Beeswax version Vegan bar. Same solid plastic free bar, same undeniable freshness.

What does the bicarbonate of soda do for me that is in the bar?

Baking Soda has antibacterial properties to help control the bacteria that grows in our underarms, which cause odour when they break down sweat. ... When the alkaline baking soda deodorant is applied to our acidic underarms, a chemical reaction occurs to neutralise the odour.

How long will my bar last?

Keep the bar in a cool place and use as required the bar should last up to four months of lasting freshness! We suggest popping it in one of our nifty travel tins *insert link* however, a jar or different container to keep in will suffice. The bars do not dry out but will gather air borne dust if not covered well.

Why is your bar Aluminium free?

Antiperspirants that contain aluminium salts that help plug your pores so you don’t sweat as much, however these plugged pores can contribute to your natural body’s toxin outlet (your arm pit) stopping the process. Aluminium can be under the name of aluminium chloralhydrate or aluminium zirconium tetrachlorohydrex gly.

Pit-Tastic! has been formulated to reduce sweating under arm and eliminate odour with natural ingredients, no need for aluminium.

The concerns about the risk of breast cancer largely have to do with the proximity of the underarms to the breasts. Some studies have claimed that a majority of breast cancers develop in the upper outer quadrant of the breast because that section is closest to the underarms, where antiperspirants — which theoretically get absorbed by the skin or enter through razor nicks — are applied, the thinking being that the aluminium gets into the lymph nodes and then travels to the breasts. Going along with that are the fears that because aluminium plugs the sweat ducts, the body can’t rid itself of any potentially cancerous substances absorbed during antiperspirant use.

PIT-TASTIC! INGREDIENTS 

Pit-Tastic! deodorants are all formulated and made with high quality natural ingredients expertly blended for a solid completely biodegradable top to toe bar.

We suggest that you do not apply Pit-Tastic if you are in your first trimester of Pregnancy. However, once you’ve crossed into the second and third trimesters, certain essential oils can provide relief from many pregnancy symptoms.
