A romantic ambiance and the silky smell of freshly cut roses.

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.


Aqua, Propanediol, Glycerin, Maranta Arundinacea (Arrowroot) Root Powder, Sodium Stearate, Silica, Saccharomyces Ferment, Benzyl Alcohol, Salicylic Acid, Sorbic Acid, Rose Flower Oil, Allantoin, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Magnesium Hydroxide, Carbo Activatus (Activated Charcoal).

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

Natural, Vegan, Cruelty-free



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.

    I’ve tried a lot, and I mean A LOT of natural deodorants over the past couple of years and this brand is the only one that hasn’t left my armpits with rashes, and peeling skin. All the scents are lovely but I have found that the Rose works best for me, plus it just reminds me of summer (which is nice in the middle of Canadian Winter). In the heat of the summer I tend to pop a travel size in my purse in case I need to reapply but that doesn’t happen very often. Love this brand!

  2. Gary Langfield (verified owner)

    The Deodorant is Great it took a few weeks for my body to adjust. It last for 24 hours even if you have a workout. Would recommend this product.

  3. Beth

    THE BEST DEODORANT EVER!!! I’ve spent so much money trying every natural deodorant spray, cream, powder you name it! This really really works and the scent is so fresh and uplifting and subtle at the same! Thank you for creating this deodorant gem 🙂

    Hi Beth!

    Thank you so much for your support! We really appreciate it! 🙂

  5. Paul

    Works Great

  6. Karina (verified owner)

    LOVE this deodorant! No underarm residue and no body odor smell. So nice to find a natural deodorant that works!

  7. Mary Newman

    I love this deodorant! It keeps me dry all day long. Sometimes it doesn’t even feel like i am wearing deodorant so I check and happily discover that I have already applied it that day. No need to worry about staying dry or having body odor with this deodorant because this deodorant has you covered. I stay fresh smelling and dry all day long. Well worth buying this deodorant.

  8. Jennyannemay (verified owner)

    This is literally the only natural deodorant that has ever worked for me… and I have tried MANY. My husband has at least 5 of my castoffs. Nearly every other product gives me a rash, and the ones that don’t just plain leave me smelly. This is such a huge winner for me, and I am VERY picky about my products, in fact, I often resort to making my own.

  9. Mandy (verified owner)

    My favorite deodorant to date! I love the smell of this deodorant and how smooth it goes on. It’s also very gentle unlike some of the other more natural brands. I stay fresh all day!

  10. Karen B Holden (verified owner)

    Best deodorant ever! The stick lasts a long time, and it ever leaves any white residue, as some products do.

  11. Katie (verified owner)

    I have been using this deodorant for a few years now and wouldn’t use anything else 🙂

  12. Jackie

    After trying SEVERAL natural deodorants, I have finally found one that a) WORKS and b) doesn’t leave my (sensitive) underarms with an awful, red, bumpy, painful rash! Even other natural deodorants that were baking soda wrecked havoc on my armpits. Enter THUS deodorant (angel music playing). It goes on silky smooth, doesn’t leave a residue and feels so clean, all day long. I am a very active person and this holds up to even my most serious workouts. Purchased the Discovery Set to test out all the scents before committing to one and they are all amazing – it is too hard to decide! I love this one (Rose), Lime Mint and Juicy Bamboo.

  13. Sam K (verified owner)

    I struggled for years with having extreme reactions to any deodorant until I found the Takesumi Detox deodorant. Not only have I not had harsh reactions for a few years since switching to this deodorant, but it actually works to keep the odor away.

  14. ciangal (verified owner)

    I already used a non-toxic non-aluminum deodorant but wanted to give this a try. I purchased to travel size and haven’t looked back. I love the scent and the fact that it stays clear rather than the white goopy stuff that other deodorants cause was a definite plus. It’s a little on the expensive side, but I’m definitely worth it.

  15. Emily

    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.

  16. Nisha (verified owner)

    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!

  17. Tam (verified owner)

    Very feminin scent and it works!! Follow the detox instructions and you will love the outcome!

  18. Chynna

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

  19. Erin (verified owner)

    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!

  20. Emily Tamfo

    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.

  21. Malin

    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

  22. Lauren Roberts (verified owner)

    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!

  23. Lindsay Davis (verified owner)

    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.

  24. Lucy Oyola

    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!

  25. GM

    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).

  26. Susan (verified owner)

    ❤️❤️❤️ Best natural deodorant I have used.

  27. Naomi (verified owner)

    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.

  28. Karen B. Holden (verified owner)

    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!

  29. Joey M.

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

  30. Maria Vraciu

    just got a sample ! and LOVE IT !!!!

  31. Kristin

    My favorite natural deodorant yet and now a staple in my beauty regimen! I am so thankful I found this product!

  32. Ana

    Top natural deodorant on the market!! Absolutely love it! Very satisfied and will continue to purchase.

  33. Jeannette Lindsay

    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.
