BLACK OAK AND BOURBON SCENT

RICH – AMBER – CEDAR

While sipping a dark spirited bourbon on the rocks in a dimly lit, oak-cladded lounge in Manhattan, the sensual aroma of black oak fills the air. The perfect blend of masculine sophistication with timeless notes of rich oak and orange peel.


We have formulated our deodorants with activated charcoal as it acts like a magnet to draw out toxins from your pores, while also fighting odor-causing bacteria. Our easy glide formulation dries to a clear powder finish.

Antiperspirants block the sweat glands, thereby preventing you from sweating. With natural deodorant, your underarms are free to breathe.

The body goes through a detox phase when transitioning from an antiperspirant to a natural deodorant. We found that the average consumer takes 2-4 weeks to fully transition, therefore we broke down the detox journey to a step-by-step process that you may experience. (see stages of detox) After you transition, use as a daily deodorant + detox to keep you fresh and odor free longer.

Artisanally-blended essential oils created by a renowned perfumer.

STAGES OF DETOX

A 2 to 4 week transition period can be expected when transitioning from antiperspirant to natural deodorant.

Studies show that antiperspirant users experienced an increase in odorous bacteria in the underarm area when they stop using antiperspirant. 

NOTE: Each stage of the detox may vary depending on your body chemistry.      

WEEK 1: Our activated charcoal formula pulls toxins from your pores and helps to neutralize odor.

WEEK 2: Once you stop using antiperspirant and switch to natural deodorant, you will experience an increase growth of odor-causing bacteria in the underarm area. You may also feel additional moisture, which is temporary.

PRO TIP: If you suffer from excessive body odor, use the underarm bar to eliminate odor-causing bacteria on your skin BEFORE applying natural deodorant.

WEEK 3: Bacteria levels may begin to subside. Underarm moisture levels normalize and the amount of odorous bacteria will begin to decline.

WEEK 4: Your body should have fully adjusted to natural deodorant. Continue to use the takesumi detox as a daily deodorant. Our charcoal formula will continue to detox and deodorize.

FAQ

The charcoal is grey, will it stain my clothing?
Although it is grey, it goes on clear. There will be no white marks or yellow stains (which are caused by aluminum) as it is aluminum-free.

Will I still sweat while using the takesumi detox?
The takesumi detox is a deodorant that will help keep odor away; however, it cannot stop sweating as aluminum does (as it clogs the pores to prevent the natural process of sweating). Noticing a temporary excess of perspiration and odor is normal since your body needs time to rebalance to start working normally again.

How long does the odor control last?
The takesumi detox charcoal deodorant fights odor causing bacteria for up to 12 hours.

I’m a super smelly person what can I do?
If you are needing extra odor protection while transitioning or for those intense workout days, use the takesumi detox underarm bar to give yourself an extra protective barrier from odor causing bacteria.

Is this deodorant only used as a detox?
It starts off as a detox but after you transition, use as a daily deodorant. Continue to use the takesumi detox charcoal deodorant after you have fully transitioned, to continue allowing toxins and bacteria to not build up under your underarms. For extra protection, use the takesumi detox underarm bar on your smelly parts.

Is this safe to use while pregnant or breastfeeding?
Yes! We take pride in having clean and natural ingredients in all of our products. Our the takesumi detox charcoal deodorant is safe for all women breastfeeding and pregnant as it is free of all harmful chemicals that would otherwise, absorb into your underarms.

ALUMINUM FREE

NO SYNTHETIC FRAGRANCES

NOT TESTED ON ANIMALS

GENTLE ON SKIN

No Stains

Formulated to a clear, powder finish without leaving residue on clothing.

Goes On Clear

This smooth gliding formula works without tugging or pulling.

Baking Soda Free

Baking soda is a known skin irritant and is very abrasive causing itchy, dry skin and armpit rashes

FORMULATED WITH

Activated Charcoal

Activated charcoal, pulls impurities from your pores and helps to neutralize odor on a daily basis so underarms stay fresh everyday.

No aluminum

Antiperspirants contain aluminum salts that form gel-like plugs in your pores, to prevent you from sweating. Aluminum is also a suspected heavy metal that travels through your blood stream.

No baking soda

Baking soda has a very alkaline (or basic) pH of 9. As soon as your skin’s pH goes over 6.5, your acid mantle is thrown off. Each point increase in the pH scale makes a huge difference. This often results in skin irritations due to the increased alkaline level particularly in the sensitive skin area.

No parabens

Parabens are preservatives that prevent bacteria and mold from growing in your deodorant. They mimic estrogen in the body and disrupt your natural hormone mechanisms.

No propylene glycol

Traditional stick deodorants are formulated with propylene glycol, which gives the stick its firm texture. Propylene glycol is usually derived from natural gas or petroleum and can irritate your skin.

No synthetic fragrances

Many synthetic chemicals in fragrances are derived from petrochemicals (petroleum-based) and can be harmful to human health. Chemicals found in man-made fragrances include phthalates, which are endocrine disruptors, and benzene derivatives, aldehydes, and toluene, which are known carcinogens.

WHAT TO EXPECT

The stages of detox

 A 2 to 4 week transition period can be expected when transitioning from antiperspirant to natural deodorant. Studies show that antiperspirant users experienced an increase in odorous bacteria in the underarm area when they stop using antiperspirant.

BETTER TOGETHER

THE DIUO YOU DIDN'T KNOW YOU NEEDED.

This is literally the only natural deodorant that has ever worked for me… and I have tried MANY.

Jenny

Best natural deodorant! I’ve tried others but nothing really works as well as this one. 

Jennifer

Made the switch to this deodorant from an antiperspirant about a year ago and am officially addicted to this product.

Carolyn

This is the only brand that does everything: keeps me fresh all day without reapplying, doesn’t transfer onto or ruin my black clothes, doesn’t make me sweat and doesn’t irritate my skin.

    Only natural deodorant that works for me and doesn’t inflame my lymph nodes in my armpits. Love it.

  2. Jen (verified owner)

    I have been using kaia for almost two year. And this scent is by far my favorite one! Unlike other natural deodorant brand, kaia performs as advertised. It will keep you fresh and free of any body odour! I suggest buying this with the charcoal soap, if you ever find needing extra help.

  3. katelyn nazaroff (verified owner)

    I am so obsessed with the black oak and bourbon scent. It’s is by far my favorite. This deodorant doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin like other all naturals brands and leaves me feeling fresh and smelling great. Goes so well with Tom fords tobacco vanille perfume!

  4. Taryn

    Long time user of the mint lime deodorant, which I love, but the Black Oak & Bourbon is on a whole new level. Earthy, not too feminine or masculine, the smell is sexy. Absolutely my new favorite. All the the deodorants are amazing. I have tried many natural deodorants and this is the only brand that does everything: keeps me fresh all day without reapplying, doesn’t transfer onto or ruin my black clothes, doesn’t make me sweat and doesn’t irritate my skin. Pro tip: use an activated charcoal based soap in the shower in the underarm area and it makes the deodorant 10x more effective.

  5. Adrian (verified owner)

    I’m a male, and having recently made the transition to natural am a fan of this deodorant formula. I’ve sampled all of the fragrances, and prefer the Black Oak & Bourbon by a wide margin. I haven’t been able to order another since my original order in May, so availability seems to be an issue. And when it comes to deodorant, the last thing you want to have happen is to be caught without any!

  6. kaia naturals

    Hi Adrian, Thank you for taking the time to share your love for the black oak and bourbon scent! Our apologies for any inconvenience with its lack of availability! However, with luck, it is now back in stock! 🙂

  7. Maureen (verified owner)

    This is by far the very best natural deodorant I have ever tried! Works so amazing!!

  8. Laura (verified owner)

    This is the first deodorant I’ve ever used that hasn’t made my skin angry and that actually works! I have really sensitive skin, so baking soda is a no-go, but finding something without it that lasts all day was a challenge. This stuff is the real deal though, and the scent is lovely as well!

  9. kerrypitt (verified owner)

    This is an amazing deodorant. I love the Black Oak & Bourbon, an earthy, luxurious scent that does not overpower. I have sensitive skin, and have zero issues with this product. Best of all, it works so well!! Worth every penny.

  10. Amanda

    This is my favorite deodorant ever! I get the Rose scent and just love it. It keeps me fresh all day and doesn’t have an overpowering smell about it. It’s also great on my sensitive skin.

  11. Jackie

    I bought the Limited Edition trial pack of all the scents to see which one would be the best fit for my husband and I, and this is the one he settled on. It smells so luxurious and he (an intense re: stinky perspire-er) is amazed at how well this natural deodorant works. He came home after day two, threw away his regular deodorants and asked me to buy him two more of this one.

  12. Tam (verified owner)

    Smells amazing and good for both males and females!

  13. Elizabeth Allain

    This is an amazing product!! Both Black Oak & Bourbon and Lime Mint are my favourites! My skin is very sensitive, so I can’t use any products with baking soda– but I also have stinky pits, so I really need something effective. That’s THIS deodorant! It is extrememly effective against odour, with no irritation, and the smell is incredible!
