  • Safe for Sensitive Skin

    Some people have harsh reactions to traditional deodorant products. Some of the chemicals in over the counter deodorants are known to cause allergic reactions that can result in a painful rash. Those afflicted usually turn to natural products as a solution. Unfortunately, most of the all natural products use a baking soda base, which is also known to be harsh on the skin. While it's still possible to have an allergic reaction to the ingredients in California Charcoal Deodorant, it's far less likely to occur.

  • Contains no Aluminum

    The main ingredient in over the counter products is Aluminum. This serves to stop you from sweating by clogging the pores on your skin. California Charcoal Deodorant is not marketed as an antiperspirant, this doesn't mean charcoal deodorants are not effective. Charcoal is very absorbent and can absorb many times its weight in water. Contrary to popular belief, it's not the sweat which causes odor. Body odor is caused by bacteria that live on the skin, by soaking up the sweat you help prevent the bacteria from causing unwanted smells.

  • Promotes Healthy Skin

    Charcoal is not the only active ingredient in the product. California Charcoal Deodorant also contains pure Vitamin E, Shea butter, and Coconut oil. The additional ingredients help prevent the skin from drying out and smell good too.

  • Lasts up to Twelve Hours

    California Charcoal Deodorant can last an entire workday and beyond. Customers that have used this product state that it continues to work in the harshest of conditions and they rarely feel the need to reapply.

Does it Really Work?

Yes. Those who use charcoal based deodorants report that their skin stays dry and there is no noticeable odor. Proponents of charcoal-based products state that even after months of using the product, they don't return to traditional deodorants. Everybody is a little bit different and some people will find charcoal deodorants more effective than others.

Negative Aspects

  • Might Cause Hair to Matte

    With users who have longer body hair, California Charcoal Deodorant might cause the hair to matte. One common suggestion is to slightly trim the hair before you start using the product. Be sure to wash the product out of your underarm at the end of the evening, this will likely prevent the issue from occurring.

  • Not Available in Stores

    California Charcoal Deodorant is not currently available in any major retail outlets. Similar products can be purchased in limited locations, but they are often hard to find. Some proponents have even gone as far as to create their own at home solutions. Detailed instructions on how to make your own charcoal deodorant are listed below.

How to Make Charcoal Deodorant

  1. Ingredients Needed

    To make your own Charcoal Deodorant you will need several ingredients and tools. A metal pot, a glass bowl, coconut oil, arrowroot, activated charcoal tablets, baking soda, and any desired essential oils for added fragrance.

  2. Heat and Mix

    Add a small amount of water to the metal pot, Make sure the bowl has enough room to rest on top of the pot and is not touching the water. In the glass bowl, mix one cup of coconut oil, half a cup of baking soda and half a cup of arrowroot together. If you are sensitive to baking soda, this ingredient can be reduced or removed. Turn the burner on to low heat and continuously stir. The mixture will begin to liquify, this should take about ten minutes to complete. Remove the mixture from the burner and continue.

  3. Cool Mixture

    Place the mixture in the refrigerator for approximately fifteen to thirty minutes or until mixture is cool.

  4. Add Charcoal

    Take one tablet of activated charcoal and break it open. Add the charcoal powder to the mixture. If desired, you can use two charcoal tablets instead.

  5. Add Essential Oils

    To create a scented deodorant, you can add a variety of different essential oils. Only a few drops of each desired scent is required. Some popular choices include rosemary, peppermint, eucalyptus and citrus based oils.

  6. Stir Until Mixture Sets

    Once all the ingredients have been added, thoroughly stir the mixture. In a room temperature environment, coconut oil will return to a paste-like consistency. When the desired consistency has been reached, the mixture is ready to use. Move the mixture into a glass container and you are finished. To use the deodorant, simply roll a small amount into a ball and apply to the underarm. Do it yourself charcoal deodorant will not be an exact replica of California Charcoal Deodorant. California Charcoal Deodorant comes in a convenient stick form and the at home solution will be a paste.
