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.



JUICY BAMBOO SCENT

CRISP - FRUITY - CITRUS

Bright and elegant, the scent of mandarin nectar takes you on a Saturday afternoon stroll through the mandarin groves in Southern California. The sun warms your face and the sophisticated smell of citrus surrounds you.

stages of detox charcoal deodorant + detox
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.

    Really love it. Even with antiperspirants, I’ve always had trouble finding a scent that didn’t react weirdly with my sweat, making it smell even worse – this scent is perfect for my body chemistry! Even when I sweat a lot, it still smells pretty good. The detox phase sucks but isn’t that long, especially if you exfoliate and use the underarm bar. I think I’ll be using this for a good long time.

    This is my favorite scent- it’s a very light and fresh citrus scent. This is the most effective natural deodorant I have used. I love that they don’t use baking soda because that is a very harsh ingredient on the skin and can cause ingrown hairs or bumps on underarm area. The Arrowroot powder that they use in the formula does a much better job at preventing odor and does not irritate sensitive skin. I did not experience a “detox” phase because I have not used antiperspirant for years. But I recommend keeping the deodorant in your purse for re-application

    Love the scent of this product and how it applies. No stickiness or transfer to clothing. Got the sample size to try so can’t wait to repurchase the full size, a real win!

    My husband & I love your this. Have a small supply so we don’t run out. We live in the US, worth the shipping

    I’m obsessed with this product! It’s been a huge game changer for me and totally works! The stick also lasts FOREVER. I recommend it to everyone. Piece of advice: tough out the “smelly” phase of the detox, it’s totally worth it

    I absolutely love this deodorant and have been using it for well over a year. I no longer smell even when I sweat! And as a PILATES teacher whose job is staying active, and who bikes to work and workouts three to four times a week, I sweat a lot! The Takesumi detox deodorant holds up extremely well! It goes on clean and smooth, smells fresh and wonderful and lasts! I won’t even try another deodorant. Only other scents by Kaia Naturals!

    I’ve been using this product for a year and I love it! I did reapply several times during the transition period, but haven’t had to since. The juicy bamboo is by far my favorite scent. It’s so crisp, clean and fresh.

    Fresh scent! Works very well, especially when paired with the charcoal soap bar.

    This deodorant is amazing!!! This is my favourite scent! Fresh and natural. It truly works wonders and I have noticed a big difference. You need to give the time to work on your body but so worth it. Combine it with the deodorant bar in the shower and you are good to go!!!

    The scent of this is great – fresh but not overpowering, and not too masculine or feminine. The texture of this is much thinner than a natural deodorant with baking soda – it almost feels like it turns to liquid as you apply it – but I think that helps it absorb into your skin rather than transfer onto your clothes. I have noticed that I need to re-apply more throughout the day while using this because it doesn’t contain baking soda, but I have had zero skin irritation so far, which is my main issue with other deodorants!

    I have tried about 10,000 natural deodorants in the past and have dealt with reactions from the baking soda to ones that made me feel self conscious and worried about smell! I finally tried Kaia and went through the detox process and I can honestly say it is a game changer!! Even in this crazy heat I have been sweating but odour free. If you decide to try it make sure you follow detox instructions! I also love the soap as an adjunct to help the product work its magic. Thank you from a happy customer!

    Love this detox deodorant! I obviously bought this for its unique properties vs the other ones out there and it works! I didn’t have any bad body odor before but it does keep me from smelling sweaty after a day of outdoors. The citrus scent is great and subtle. Can’t wait to try the other ones.

    I have never had an allergic reaction to a product before but this made my underarm skin burn and left me with painful bright red rashes. I’ve stopped using it and the rash is slowly going away. I purchased the soap, Juicy bamboo and rose deodorants. $80 loss.

    love this deodorant. I was always try to avoid metals in my deodorants so when I saw that it was aluminum free, I decided to try it out. It completely exceeded my expectations. I was skeptical that a natural deodorant would be better than one with chemicals in terms of odor elimination, but I was so wrong. I feel happier and healthier ever since I made the switch.

    I actually look forward to using this deodorant every day! I naturally sweat a lot, so this is kind of important to me.

    I love this product! I wish I had started using it earlier. I was skeptical at first but after hearing the buzz about natural deodorant, I gave it a try. I bought both the deodorant and the deodorant booster bar which was a great duo. I will definitely be purchasing these products again!

    I love this deodorant so much! I always have a fear of smelling bad and now I don’t have to worry! And I never have to worry about the deodorant getting on my clothes too!! Just an amazing product!!

    It works!! I always carry a back up in case my “natural” deodorant is a fail. I didn’t need the backup after using this.

    I have had such a hard time finding a deodorant that works!! Not to mention one that smells nice. This one is the best of both worlds!

    I loved switching to this deodorant and have been using it for a couple of months. The odor control has been great and I enjoy the fresh scent. My only issue is I am now nearing the bottom of the stick and it is no longer applying nicely. The deodorant is crumbling and falling out of the tube, so I am not getting any on my body and most of it is ending up on my bathroom floor. The cost of this deodorant is making me pause before buying it again, especially if I can’t use it all.

    I’ve been using this for over two months and love it. I started with a travel size and then bought the full size in this scent. They reformulated the product, which seems to have more of a velvety finish than than the old gel formula. Packaging and ingredients list looks the same though, so it’s hard to know what changed if anything. Other than that, I haven’t seen any major differences in performance. The juicy bamboo scent is very heavy on lemon, which would make it an ideal unisex scent. However, I was hoping for something more in the grapefruit-orange range. As it is, it doesn’t meld well with my perfume profile.
