A natural deodorant that works - the first bamboo charcoal deodorant stick.

Ta-keh-su-mee, known as bamboo charcoal, is a time-honoured Japanese secret for odor control and detoxification

With a combination of activated charcoal and natural fermentation technology which fights odor-causing bacteria, you will stay odor free all day.

Activated charcoal has a porous surface that acts like a magnet, which chemically binds substances, such as bacteria and toxins to draw them out.

Vegan and cruelty free, 99% natural

Activated bamboo charcoal is ideal for eliminating toxins from your body and has the power to clean deep inside sweat glands. With its amazing detoxifying abilities, it is used as a universal antidote for poison in virtually every hospital in the world. Activated charcoal is also used to treat drug overdoses as well as kidney and liver dialysis machines to purify blood before it is allowed to enter back into the body. Charcoal is so potent that one gram (the size of your fingernail) can absorb enough toxins to fill four tennis courts.

The deodorant is black, will it stain my clothing?
Although it is black, 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, and 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).

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

    My sister and I thought it would be great for our dad to try a natural deodorant. He was skeptical at first but decided to give the lime scent a chance . Now he doesn’t stop talking about how much he loves the deodorant. He can’t believe he doesn’t have BO anymore, even after working out or being in the sun all day.

    I was very hesitant to try this deodorant as I am a clinical deodorant girl tired and true. But after reading the ingredients in most deodorants/antiperspirants I wanted something better for myself. I saw your product on TV and thought why not.
    I am currently entering my second week of using this product and to be honest, I am having difficulty. It definitely keeps me drier than other products. However I am having a hard time cooping with the odor. My husband and family tell me that they smell nothing at all. I do the sniff test each night of my clothing and there seems to be no smell or any staining on my whites. Hence the 4 star rating.
    Yet I feel that my odor is very strong which makes me extremely nervous. I do clean my armpits throughout the day and reapply my deodorant. I also do clay masks about 4 times a week to help with detoxifying my body.
    I am going to try my best to stick with this regimen by staying focused on the end result. I will update my review again in a week or two.

    This product works great and controls both odour and sweat, even through a tough workout or a run. I don’t need to reapply during the day!

    I’ve been using this product for about a year and LOVE it. I bike to work in +30C temperatures in the summer and have no problems at all with odour. Despite the colour, this goes on clear and never stains light coloured clothing. The lime mint has a great clean scent. The only product I buy now. Happy to see the travel size available!

    The new powdered formula is SOO good! I loved the previous gel-like formula before but this is even better. Applies smoothly, doesn’t leave any stains, controls odors, and keeps me dry (for most of the day)! Also, the product doesn’t melt in the heat.

    My husband and I have been using this deodorant for the past 2 months and I must say we are totally impressed! My husband who is generally picky, didn’t say anything about it ever, which means he likes it! I experienced some of the stages of detox the company stated, but after a month or so, the odor just went away. Love this product and finally something without baking soda (which killed my armpits)
