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.



A Sunday morning trip to the Parisian Marche aux Fleurs, a bussetling flower market in Paris, reveals a romantic ambiance and the velvety smell of freshly cut roses.

All ingredients are listed in INCI (international scientific nomenclature).

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

    Amazing. Literally noticed a difference day one. I didn’t have a “detox phase” and noticed no excessive sweating. This smell is so pretty and I love that when I sweat and I can smell it, it’s not obvious that it’s the smell of a deodorant.

    Bought the travel size to try it out but definitely buying again.

    This deodorant has been a game changer in my battle against body odor! I feel fresh and confident when I go out now instead of constantly worrying about smelling sweaty. What I love most is that this product is non-toxic and has a fantastic scent. I have sensitive skin and suffer from mild HS (hidradenitis suppurativa) but this product has not given me any issues so far which is such a relief from trying and testing so many other natural deodorants that weren’t as effective. Thank you Kaia!

    I love all Kaia Naturals charcoal deodorants! I’ve found they’ve really made a difference and they work so well!

    Hands down the best deodorant I have ever used, if I could give more than 5 stars I would! This deodorant keeps me smelling fresh all day, with a subtle and natural scent of rose. I had been on a 2 year long hunt for an effective natural deodorant, and one year ago I found Kaia Naturals, and I have not purchased a different deodorant since. I highly recommend this product!

    I’m a big fan of this scent. I used the juicy bamboo before and while I love the scent, it’s not as neutral as this one. This is my new holy grail deodorant for sure.

    Best natural deodorant I have tried, and it’s also the most ‘elegant’ natural deodorant – the scent, the quality and the design.
    I definitely recommend this brand, and I hope they would sell it in more stores here in Vancouver

    I have very sensitive armpits, but I have been using the Takesumi Detox for a couple of months now and have not had any issues with it! I haven’t even experienced any detox side effects! Plus, the rose scent is incredibly pleasant and fresh!

    I thought switching to a charcoal deodorant would be a difficult transition, but so far I am a few weeks in and haven’t experienced one negative to the switch! And I absolutely love the smell of the deodorant and can’t wait to try the others. Would recommend this to anyone wanting to make the switch and detox from their previous deodorants.

    I swear by this deodorant and always recommend it to my friends who are try to find a natural deodorant that works! I apply before bed after my showers and again in the morning. I find that it works even better when using the applecider bar soap. Never trying another brand!

    Apparently I have super sensitive skin so I have a tough time finding natural deodorants that actually work for me but don’t irritate my skin. So no baking soda for me, no how, now way. This product does not contain baking soda and it honestly works like a dream for me. I use the soap as well. I believe the same as Kaia that it’s the bacteria that causes the smell and I really do feel that using these products have overall diminished stinky armpits, even on the days when I don’t use the deodorant. I commute by bike everyday and it holds up even to that! I did not have to endure a detox period because I’ve been using various natural deodorants for a while now. So why the 4 stars? Sadly, this deodorant does still irritate my skin if I use it everyday. But it’s a slight irritation (compared to what baking soda does) that only builds up over the course of a week so I’m careful about not using daily. On off days, I use Moringa Oil to help sooth the irritation and continue to help fight the bacteria from building up again. I also love the rose smell, it’s super subtle and clean smelling (the juicy bamboo is also delicious smelling but a bit stronger than this one).

    This is my favourite scent of the Kaia products. Going natural is scary, but this stuff is actually really effective! It’s not an antiperspirant, but it will stop odour. So happy I decided to switch.

    Just what I’ve been waiting for! Works fine – n me, there was no “break through” period at all. Not messy, seems to last all day and into the next! I love it!

    Really helps to control odor! I still get sweaty, wet armpits, but no smell. It’s the best natural one I’ve tried.

    I have a drawer full of natural deodorants that don’t work, but I think I finally found the one that truly works! I took the advice from kaia naturals to make sure to get through the 4 weeks as it takes approximately that long for your body to adjust. I was kind of scared because my detox lasted longer than the 4 weeks, however I kept using it and it’s been 3 months now and it works fine!
    So my detox lasted longer but that’s OK, I’m glad it worked in the end! I like the rose scent and its not too overpowering. Will buy again.
