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.



Laying on a hammock on a sunny afternoon in July, the calming scent of fresh cut mint from the garden fills the air. Sipping a sparkling glass of water with a squeeze of lime you feel at ease.

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.

    I bought the Discovery Set to see which one would be best the best fit for my husband and I, and the Lime Mint is the one he picked as his favourite. It smells so luxurious and he (an intense re: stinky perspire-er) is amazed at how well this natural deodorant works (he was skeptical when I informed him I was hoping he would follow in my footsteps and make the switch to natural deodorant). It goes on very smooth (even with underarm hair) and lasts all day for him; he is a contractor so I feel like that says a lot about the conditions this deodorant can withstand. He came home after day two, threw away his Dove sticks and sprays (that I am convinced did nothing for his sweating nor stench by the end of the day) and asked me to add two more of these to my shopping cart.

    I’ve tried a number of deodorants in my life, but I seem to buid resistance from all of them after a few months. when I tried this one, I didn’t have any detox simphtom, probably because I was already using natural deodorants since a while already, which did not really prevent the odor to form. I’m using this deodorant since over a year and it’s the 1st one that truly keeps the odor away. My husband uses the grapefruit one instead and keeps buying it too.

    Very good smell, very effective against bad smell. I have tried virtually all existing deodorants on the market and those of Kaia naturals are the best. In addition, they are not tested on animals and are made with natural ingredients. I am really impressed by this product

    This is my favorite natural deodorant. I really like the texture and that it doesn’t leave a greasy feeling like other cream deodorants.

    Love the scent! Goes on clear and doesn’t make my skin irritated like other deodorants.

    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!

  13. Rated 5 out of 5


    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)
