MANDARIN POMELO SCENT (formally juicy bamboo)
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.
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.
