Scent: Nordic Frost




The aromas of white pine and snow dusted trails whisk you away to the Boreal forest.

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.

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.

No Stains

Formulated to a clear, powder finish without leaving residue on clothing.

Goes On Clear

This smooth gliding formula works without tugging or pulling.

Baking Soda Free

Baking soda is a known skin irritant and is very abrasive causing itchy, dry skin and armpit rashes


Activated Charcoal

Activated charcoal, pulls impurities from your pores and helps to neutralize odor on a daily basis so underarms stay fresh everyday.

No aluminum

Antiperspirants contain aluminum salts that form gel-like plugs in your pores, to prevent you from sweating. Aluminum is also a suspected heavy metal that travels through your blood stream.

No baking soda

Baking soda has a very alkaline (or basic) pH of 9. As soon as your skin’s pH goes over 6.5, your acid mantle is thrown off. Each point increase in the pH scale makes a huge difference. This often results in skin irritations due to the increased alkaline level particularly in the sensitive skin area.

No parabens

Parabens are preservatives that prevent bacteria and mold from growing in your deodorant. They mimic estrogen in the body and disrupt your natural hormone mechanisms.

No propylene glycol

Traditional stick deodorants are formulated with propylene glycol, which gives the stick its firm texture. Propylene glycol is usually derived from natural gas or petroleum and can irritate your skin.

No synthetic fragrances

Many synthetic chemicals in fragrances are derived from petrochemicals (petroleum-based) and can be harmful to human health. Chemicals found in man-made fragrances include phthalates, which are endocrine disruptors, and benzene derivatives, aldehydes, and toluene, which are known carcinogens.


The stages of detox

 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.



We recommend using our natural charcoal deodorant in conjunction with our underarm bar. Our detox from aluminum kit helps ensure a successful transition to natural deodorant and prevents you from smelling throughout the process.


This is literally the only natural deodorant that has ever worked for me… and I have tried MANY.


Best natural deodorant! I’ve tried others but nothing really works as well as this one. 


Made the switch to this deodorant from an antiperspirant about a year ago and am officially addicted to this product.


This is the only brand that does everything: keeps me fresh all day without reapplying, doesn’t transfer onto or ruin my black clothes, doesn’t make me sweat and doesn’t irritate my skin.

    Works great. Lasts all day!

  2. Anna

    I was really excited to try this product. I focused more on the positive reviews than the negative ones and went ahead with my purchase.
    I have been in quarantine since March, working from home.. I wear the deodorant everyday in my office space and it’s been 5 months and I have to reapply the deodorant in the afternoon despite my lack of movement. I really wanted to love this product but it did not work for me at all. I do see minimal whitening effects but that is about it. I find myself sweating more and definitely smellier than usual. Also, I was really excited for a nice musky clean scent but nordic frost smells exactly like toothpaste… which was disappointing to me as well.

    I like this deodorant. I still get a bit stinky at the end of the day but I like using natural deodorant. If I add more in the afternoon, that seems to help

  4. Anna (verified owner)

    Gives a nice minty tingle upon application. Doesn’t
    Quite stand up to the hottest of days — but trying to push through to keep up the detox from conventional deo.

    I made the switch to natural deodorant last fall (and convinced my husband to do so at the same time). I workout and sweat a fair amount and the soap/Nordic Frost deodorant combination have worked really well for me. When I went to purchase more Nordic Frost about a month ago, it was sold out everywhere so I tried a few other natural brands. None of them kept me odour-free all day. I was very happy when the Kaia deodorants were back in stock. My husband is a big fan of the Juicy Pomelo scent – which is great – but I prefer the minty fresh smell of Nordic Frost. Our only complaint is the deodorant doesn’t stay in the container making it challenging to apply when there’s still product left.

    100% satisfied with this product. I have tried several natural deodorants that never worked for me but this is the first one that really works! This product also lasts, I use it daily and didn’t have to replace them for approx 4 months. Thanks Kaia naturals!

  7. Brittany

    The only natural deodorant that works for my husband (& we’ve tried TONS)! Lasts all day with no need to reapply and smells so fresh!

  8. Letty

    I absolutely love your products! I can honestly say your deodorants really work! I use both the underarm bar and your deodorant. I use the bar every time I shower and It leaves my armpits with a nice clean scent! I’m currently using the Pressed Rose scent, but my favorite is the Nordic Frost. I recommended your product to my sister as she was using a different brand of natural deodorant that stopped working. She made the switch an absolutely loves it! Looking forward to your Black Friday Sale!

    Love this deodorant paired with the bar!

    I am so thankful for Kaia Naturals. This is my first deodorant from them and I’m very excited to try out more. Whenever I go to the gym I feel good that I can sweat out any toxins without smelling bad. This really helped neutralize everything!! Thank you so much!!

    Hi Lauren, thank you so much for taking the time to let us know. We are so sorry to hear that you had the experience, as that is not typical of our containers. If you send us an email to we would be happy to take a look into this and can definitely send you a replacement! Additionally, we would be happy to give you some tips and tricks to help with the detox phase as it can be different for everyone.

    I was really excited to try this product since I heard of all the good reviews. However, I was left very disappointed. First of all, the stages of detox did not work, and one month later my armpits still stink. Additionally, the container does not move the deodorant upwards whenever I twist it, so I have to turn the container on its side in order to apply it. Sometimes it doesn’t work, and I need to tap it, sometimes resulting in the deodorant falling out. What a waste of time, and money. Give me a product that works. I hope you’ll keep this review and not delete it.

    I normally buy the Sakura Blossom, which I absolutely love, but decided to try a different scent. The Nordic frost made my armpits feel very cool and I actually perspired more. My armpits never stopped feeling wet with this scent. Not a huge fan and I’m definitely switching back to Sakura Blossom.

    Dear JHK,

    Thank you for your comment and we want you to have a better experience. So I hope you don’t mind asking a question but we would like to turn this bad situation around. Have you been using antiperspirant before you switched to natural?

    The current problem is very simple as you are producing odor-causing bacteria (which is typical especially if you have been using antiperspirant for a long period of time).

    To help ease the transition, it’s important to prime your underarms prior to applying your natural deodorant. As odor is created when moisture turns to bacteria. The most effective way to deal with this is using antibacterial soap under your arm so bacteria has a hard time surviving. We have an underarm bar that helps with this transition when people really struggle with the transition (can take up to 4 weeks) but you can use a DIY solution you can use a bath soap and scrub for 30 seconds under each arm after you get out of the shower you can use apple cider vinegar on a cotton pad under your arm and wipe carefully then apply your deodorant. This will ensure that while your body transitions the nasty bacteria cannot accumulate and you should remain odor-free with your wonderful Nordic Frost. Please let us know if this works.

    I typically don’t write reviews for products, but this one was a disappointment. I bought this deodorant at a “natural beauty and wellness shop” I frequent where they said it would probably take two weeks to detox. I went to this website and noticed it can take up to four weeks for your body to adjust. I really wanted this product to work so I have been using this particular scent and strictly this deodorant for over a month now. I end up having odor every day whether I’m active or inactive. Today is a great example where I showered this morning and put on my deodorant then never left the house or did anything strenuous, but I smelled bad by the time I got in bed. My shirt is now soaking in white vinegar in hopes the smell does not stick. I was really hopeful with this product and the scent smells nice for the short time it works, but I’m calling it quits.

    I have tried the other scents but Nordic Frost is my go-to scent. Love the minty smell and cool feeling when applied. I’ve been using this scent since it released and have been using their deodorant line for about a year and haven’t look at any other brands since. No issues with odour at all! Even my family has started using their deodorants! Great product!

  18. Jane (verified owner)

    I love the other scents, but I’ve always gravitated towards the nordic frost because of how cooling and refreshing it feels after a few seconds of applying it under my arms. It’s one of their more unisex scents as I’ve gotten my whole family on board with this and the underarm bar.

  19. Brittnei (verified owner)

    I have been so impressed with the customer service Kaia has provided, they have made a loyal customer out of me. The product WORKS, it seems great and the ingredients are so comforting. I do, and will continue to recommend this to anyone who is looking to make a deodorant switch!

  20. Colombe B. (verified owner)

    Refreshing, very good smell, very effective against bad smell. I have tried pratically all existing deodorants on the market and those of Kaia naturals are the best. Also they are not tested on animals and are made with natural ingredients.

  21. Tam (verified owner)

    This one might be my favourite!! The smell is nice and clean and it works amazingly!

  22. Valerie Wilson

    This smells SO GOOD. It’s minty and packs a punch. I’ve had no issues with odour issues at all, which I’m super impressed as a lot of natural deodorants I’ve tried in the past don’t hold up the whole day, but this one definitely does.

  23. AJ (verified owner)

    This is by far the best natural deodorant I’ve ever used! I’ve tried some of kaia naturals’ charcoal deodorant scents – and I switch them up according to my mood, but nordic frost had easily become my favourite!! I honestly feel confidently protected even after a long hard workout. Also have to mention that I LOVE the cooling menthol feeling it gives after you apply it.
